Another day, another Iron Maiden live album. Ho, hum. There must be several hundred of them on the go now, with 'Death On The Road' the next, poorly titled one. Still, Maiden fans will put it in the Top 10, Steve Harris can renew his (newly expensive) West Ham season ticket, and the world will trundle on.
Still, I always liked 'The Trooper', and despite a ropy Bruce vocal performance, the galloping guitars are a treat. For your money, the enhanced CD also has the original album version, which really shows up the previously mentioned ropy Bruce vocal, and a live version of 'Prowler' which may be temporarily exclusive to this release.
The enhanced bit includes 'The Trooper' live, from the forthcoming DVD. 'Death On The Road' - surprise! And you get the original video for the track, which is available on the DVD, 'Visions Of The Beast'.
