Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maiden England '88 (Audio CD)
I was there at the first UK gig of this tour in 1988, Newport Centre, Wales. This DVD, filmed a few days later in NEC Birmingham, brings it all back. It's filmed from the viewpoint of the audience, close angles, in your face shots; as near as you can get to building a time machine set to take you back to the peak of Maiden's greatness (they've had a few peaks of greatness of course). The video quality in places is reminiscent of the identical 1989 video release, which I watched incessantly at the time, but this doesn't detract. It's nostalgic. The sound is better now with Dolby 5.1 etc. And included are the three signature encore songs which are always played but which were not featured in the 80s VHS. The DVD extras make this double disc release outstanding value. With the set list comprising so many 7th Son tracks which don't often make it into the current live shows, this is a vital purchase for any fan who wants to travel back in time to a front row seat at a pivotal era in the Maiden story.
