I bought all the Maiden album vinyls from the 1980s recently but hesitaded about the debut yet. the reason: I can't find it anywhere with the original artwork. wherever I search for that vinyl I would find the terrible cover version of 1998 remastered, that one here:


but I want the original cover version, this:


is the original version out print and got permanently replaced by the shitty version? any help greatly appreciated, thanks!

and: why the hell they came up with that remake from 1998 at all? that one is ridiculous.

The 2015 remaster though, seems to be out of stock on the websites I purchase from.

Go to Discogs and order the remastered vinyls from 2015. It’s likely the best vinyl copy of the debut, with original artwork, you’re going to ever find.
