The Eagle has Landed - Remaster ?? - Certainly NOT !,
This review is from: The Eagle Has Landed - Live (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.
