THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-MARCH 24, 2020…IT WAS 1982 AND I HAD MY MIND BLOWN BY A RECORD FROM IRON MAIDEN. THE ALBUM WAS IRON MAIDEN’S ‘THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST.’ IT WAS THE FIRST IRON MAIDEN RELEASE TO FEATURE SINGER BRIAN DICKINSON AND THE LAST WITH DRUMMER CLIVE BURR. THE ALBUM WAS THE FIRST ALBUM FOR IRON MAIDEN TO ENJOY COMMERCIAL SUCCESS AND WAS REALLY A LANDMARK ALBUM FOR THE BAND, SPAWNING TWO HIT SINGLES ‘RUN TO THE HILLS’ AND THE TITLE TRACK ‘THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST.’ THE ALBUM TO DATE HAS SOLD OVER 2 AND A HALF MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE. HERE’S THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR ‘RUN TO THE HILLS’
