Iron Maiden - Women In Uniform
Because I've got all those early albums on vinyl I always had an interest in picking up the Women In Uniform single as it's not an album track and the cover is really cool if not a little 'of it's time'. So when the bands 7" output was rereleased recently I picked this up.
Truth be told it's a fairly awful track and not really in keeping with the bands sound of the time, mainly because it's a cover. The band themselves have even distanced from it and by all accounts never liked it at all. From what I've read it was the record labels attempt to get them a radio hit and was 'metalled' down in production.
Weirdly though or maybe not so weirdly due to the fact that I'm writing this very blog I now have a faint stirring somewhere at the back of my mind to pick up some more of these early singles. What the hell is wrong with me??
