Special LIVE 12" EP

Iron Maiden's cover of the Skyhooks' song "Women in Uniform" was the third single by the band, and their last recorded work to feature guitarist Dennis Stratton. It was released on October 17, 1980 and is not featured on any of the band's albums. The band, in particular Steve Harris have routinely mentioned their dislike of their version of this song, stating that it was not in their style. As a result, its only appearance on CD is as part of The First Ten Years series and a rare 1995 2CD issue of Killers, meaning that the song does not appear remastered. However its B-Side, Invasion appears remastered on the Best of the 'B' Sides compilation. "Women in Uniform" would also be the basis of the band's first music-video, directed by Doug Smith and filmed at the Rainbow Theatre.
