Iron Maiden - 1969 - Maiden Voyage (Not 80s Iron Maiden)

This isn't the Iron Maiden with vocalist Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, Eddy the zombie mascot,etc. This was the sole 1969 album by a short-lived UK 'progressive heavy rock' outfit. Some might consider it to be an early doom metal effort. In 1964, Barry Skeels, Steve Drewett, Chris Rose and Alan Hooker formed an acoustic band in Basildon, Essex that eventually evolved into a band called Iron Maiden (unrelated to the currently famous Iron Maiden). By 1966, the lineup was Skeels (bass), Drewett (vocals/harmonies), Rose (lead guitar), Tom Loates (rhythm guitar) and Stan Gillem (drums); they played Rolling Stones and blues numbers under the name "Growth". Reduced to a two-piece, Drewett and Skeels played blues under the name of "Stevenson's Blues Department" in pubs and clubs in Essex and London. They supported a number of up and coming bands including Jethro Tull, Fleetwood Mac, The Groundhogs and King Crimson. In 1968, Drewett and Skeels were joined by Paul Reynolds (drums) and Trevor Thoms (guitar). They released an acetate (God of Darkness/Ballad of Martha Kent) under the name of Bum. When they signed to the Gemini label in 1970, the name was changed to Iron Maiden. The Gemini record label lost of the debut album master tapes, and Maiden Voyage was released in 1998 using duplicate tapes owned by Skeels.
