Format: Audio CD
I had the impression that this version contained the original recordings from 1982 now as remastered edition; this is how this release was advertised. Well, in 1999 EMI records already released the original record announcing that it is a remaster edition, which appeared to be (just) a re-issue. Now in 2006, they re-release it again but now + bonus tracks. First of all this is NOT a remaster, but a re-issue (a big difference), but as said, with bonus tracks. This makes it a interesting release, and also additional liner notes from Biff. It is not the first time that myself (a saxon die-hard fan) gets trapped in wrong advertisement. I just recently bought the Power and the glory re-released in 1999/2000 with wrong advertising, as it was announced this is a remaster. It appeared to be a re-issue in the Rock Series classics. I guess EMI did the same with the eagle has landed back in 1999/2000. The only extras was additional liner notes from Biff.

cheers,
ajs.

Live albums come in all shapes and sizes. There are the overblown, full concert dino snore double albums of old, such as Sabbath's Live Evil, that purport to give you the end to end, highs and lows, experience of the complete live show. Then there are the mini live albums, which are invariably rubbish (what was wrong with other 75% of the show, guys? Did you run out of tape?) - step forward Bang Tango, The Almighty, Circus of Power and so on. And finally there are the single album, distilled, classics that deliver the performance like an upper cut to the jaw. In my opinion the late 70's early 80's delivered the 4 reigning champions in this field - namely Motorheads No sleep, AC/DC's If You Want Blood, Priest's Unleashed and the totally sublime The Eagle Has Landed, by Saxon. This has all the basic ingredients of greatness. Firstly, every track is a bona fide classic, with only Never Surrender sounding like a bit of an outsider. Secondly the band is on fire, being at their absolute creative peak, and finally the production and packaging is simple, elegant and effective. The pace doesn't really let up as Biff blasts through hit after hit with gusto, all of the weight then being thrown behind the pummelling finale of Fire In The Sky/Machine Gun. When the sirens go off at the end, pretty much as they do on No Sleep Til Hammersmith, you are left seemingly as exhausted as the band is. A gold plated, genuine, classic.

Format: Audio CD
The magnificence of this live album is not in question!!! it belongs up there with all of our hallowed metal band live discs but it should have been a double!!! I believed at the time it should have been saxons' KISS ALIVE',maiden and lepard were quietly coming up in the wings and saxon were about to lose the top spot billing because despite what some journos' will tell you,saxon were top at that time and had this been a classic live double then i've no doubt that saxon would have been mega all over the world,look what happened with maiden and live after death,still what a disc this is,should have been a double!!!!! how can denim and leather not be on here god damn i still cant believe it 27 years later,cmon emi raid the vaults do the decent thing,there are 2 fantastic radio clyde recording from the glasgow apollo 82 and 84 if your feeling generous,still back to the album from the opening of motorcycle man to the finale hungry years this is perfect british metal of the 80's,head bang yer way to oblivion and scream IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN A DOUBLE!!!! Ha ha rock n roll nirvana

At last my own copy of the best live album to come out of NWOBHM. The cassette tape had worn so thin, but it was 25 years old! Great band great songs.Well done EMI for the bonus tracks, but why not sequence them into the running order so we get the feel of the live gig. I don't remember it being so loud, but it sounds great now. Treat yourself to a guilty pleasure - anyone who is not gently nodding along to this is either dead or was a new romantic back in the day. Only bettered by Strangers in the Night.

I bought this on vinyl when it first came out. I stupidly got rid of most of my records years back so when I saw Saxon were touring this winter I decided to get this CD. It's just as good now as it was then. The CD came a few days after I ordered it so all in all I'm very pleased.

Saxon make up one of the select few British heavy metal bands that defined the music in the early 80's when metal really took off. The are also one of the few to survive for decades and even more amazingly keep on ploughing their own furrow of proper old school heavy metal music.

The Eagle Has Landed is of course a well known classic that any Saxon fan will know and probably have. All the greats are on it from Denim and Leather to Wheels of Steel. Live songs of headbangingly great music played live when live records were generally meant to be live with minimal post production work done.

As far as I can see this version was re-produced from the originals in 1999. It's still live but the sound has been cleaned up a bit and generally made better on digital players. I have the original version on LP and whilst it has it's charms, it is a bit low fidelity.

So, if you haven't got this then why not? Saxon make up one of the pillars of heavy metal music and have created some of the best NWOBHM songs ever.
