Sanctuary by Iron Maiden. Single 7 released in Uk in 1980 by EMI Records with catalog number EMI 5065. This release entered uk charts on June 7 1980 with catalog number EMI 5065. The total number of weeks this release was in charts was 5 and the highest place ever reached was number 29. Maiden’s second single bag put the proverbial cat among the pigeons with a murderous-looking Eddie crouching over a prone Margaret Thatcher (her face partially censored in some countries) wielding a bloody blade. It garnered the requisite reaction, The Daily Mirror publishing the uncensored artwork under the headline, ‘It’s murder! Maggie gets rock mugging’. Job done.

———————————————————

Sanctuary song was released in 23/05/1980 as the second single and reached the number 29 on the UK top chart.
As we all know this song was included on the LP, just in USA. But this single was destined to cause some controversy. If you notice, the woman on the ground is Margaret Thatcher, UK Prime Minister at that time. Maggie was ripping off a Maiden poster from the wall guys, Eddie could not let that happen, could he? No …serious guys, this situation, although it was been said and written that, yes, did not caused any political tension , Maiden just put that black line on Maggies eyes to increase single sales, no more than that!! And it was Rods idea, the bastard is so fuckin clever!!

Songs are:

Side A: Sanctuary
Side B: Drifter and I’ve Got The Fire live at Marquee Club April 3th 1980

Cat.nº: UK EMI 5065
