(hennemusic) Iron Maiden will mark the 40th anniversary of their classic 1982 album, "The Number Of The Beast", with the November 18 release of an expanded triple vinyl reissue.
The UK band's third studio set marked their first with former Samson singer Bruce Dickinson, who joined the lineup after the 1981 firing of frontman Paul Di'Anno. "The Number Of The Beast" delivered Iron Maiden their commercial breakthrough, earning gold and platinum records in multiple countries and the band's first UK No. 1 album; the singles "Run To The Hills" and the title track led to international airplay at a time when the newly-launched MTV provided an outlet for the group's iconic heavy metal imagery in a series of music videos to promote the album.
The 40th anniversary reissue features a slight change in the track listing from its original release, replacing "Gangland" with "Total Eclipse." "On this vinyl release we get the chance to put 'Total Eclipse' in its rightful spot on the album for the first time," says Steve Harris. "The reason it didn't make it in the first place was that it was all a mad rush when we were finishing the record and we had to get the 'Run to the Hills' single out before the tour and we basically had to pick a B-side, and it was between 'Gangland' and 'Total Eclipse' and we just picked the wrong one, really! I think 'Total Eclipse' is a stronger song and the album would have been stronger if it had been on there." (read more)

(hennemusic) Motley Crue are streaming a remastered version of the video for their 1989 hit, "Dr. Feelgood." This is the latest in a series of HD upgraded releases of the band's classic music videos.
The title track to the California band's fifth studio record also served as the lead single for the project; the track was a US Top 10 hit while the Bob Rock-produced album went on to become the best-selling one in their career with US sales of more than 6 million copies.
"Dr. Feelgood" delivered the Crue their first and only US chart-topping album when it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, besting a No. 2 showing for 1987's "Girls, Girls, Girls." (read more)
