Seller’s comments: On J.U.F. Records, no ID number listed on outside of album, 1985. Purgatory, out of Cleveland, Ohio, performs 4 songs on this EP. Supposedly only 100 copies in existence. This is a sealed copy with no cut outs. Beautiful condition.
8. Iron Maiden – Eddie’s Archive CD box set, first edition complete
Seller’s comments: This is the rare first edition with the blue inlay. This is one of the nicer condition ones I’ve seen. It comes complete with all CDs and cases, scroll w/ ring, shot glass and I’ll even include a little Steve Harris bass guitar pin. The contents/UPC label has also been cut from the plastic and will be included.
The box, scroll, ring and shot glass are mint. There is a holographic factory seal still attached to the front left of the box, which was presumably left there to show the limited edition number (This one is 20646).
Flaws: There are a few extremely slight surface scratches to the outer edge of the 1st disc of the Best of the B-Sides disc. They do not affect play. Everything else about the discs is shiny and like new.
There is a small hole in the inlay where one of the legs of the shot glass rests. These punctures are common with these sets due to the fact they did not reinforce the shot glass area of the inlay (in some cases this entire area collapses). In any case you can’t even see this from viewing the box from above, you must look at it at the angle my camera is pointed at. Overall, this flaw doesn’t significantly detract from the sets attractiveness due to its tiny size and location.
The CD cases are mildly scuffed. Nothing you can really see in moderate light. But take the front booklet out of the cases and hold them up to a light, and you can see them. If you are really concerned with this, these cases are standard British 2 CD fold-out cases with the words “2 CD” in the top left. These are common stock cases, and were not made special for Maiden or anything regarding this set. I have many CDs in my collection that have utilized these same cases. So, they are replaceable if you really need to. Overall a great set and unless you are a mint freak, this would look fine in any collection.

Vinyl grade: VG++ a few small surface marks and a couple spindle marks. Plays cleanly.
Jacket grade: VG+ a little corner/edge wear. There are 2 areas where it looks like something was stuck to the back of the jacket (possibly another jacket?). It looks like it might be able to be carefully cleaned off though. There is a little discoloration at the top edge as well.
