I remember looking through little catalogues like that as a kid, but Iím sure they were from around 1987 because films like Robocop, Predator and the first 3 Elm Street films were in them, canít remember where they came from though

I used to get those from a local video shop i'm sure and pretty much read up on everything that was being released at the time.

I'm sure Almar from on here was going to pay a fortune on ebay for aone a few years back.....

Anyway-anyone remember these?
Or am I showing my age?
I think I'm showing my age by remembering them even The Karate Kid part 2 advertisement, the video shop we had in our area had a cardboard stand of it in the window

Unless Iím mistaken that is, I was only 4 at the time and didnít become a fan until 1989

Edit: Video Pieces came out in 83, but that was released by PMI
All the artwork , promo , ads etc were done for the release and then it was pulled - i have seen reviews etc and alternate cover , but am looking for the cover with Eddie standing over Hammersmith Odeon / flyover which was advertised in Video catalogues etc back in early 1983 - might not just be in a Thorn EMI one could be in generic ones back then too.
This so far seems to be the rarest Derek Riggs artwork for Maiden.
The first official release of any of that footage was on the 12 Wasted Years video which came out in 1987, the full footage that was intended to be the 1983 release was as you say on the Early Days Part 1 release in 2004.

Part of the one i'm looking for and alternative.

The artwork on the CD cover was the artwork from the Tour Shirts & programme back in 1982

(been a Maiden fan since 1980 !!)
