The reason I only give this my favourite of all thing Maiden is the lack of banter between Bruce Dickinson and the crowd. The explanation behind Sooty sitting on Nicko's drum kit and when he asks his monitor guy to turn Steve's bass down amongst other chit chat has been cut out.

Now of course this is a CD and you can't see what Bruce is talking about but if you have see the video as many times as I have but want to get on with something else while listening to this soundtrack. It's a bit of a let down that these parts have been omitted. I'm sure there is space on the discs too. Things like that weren't missed out on the Live After Death CD, even the original single disc version so why cut these atmosphere creating moments of banter that remind you you are listening to a live recording and not just a compilation?

You don't get the full experience from listening to this CD set in my opinion. I would only give it 3 for these omissions but as they are my favourite band I just cant give a score that low.

Maiden at the top of their success in the first "Bruce" period. Good song selection and well produced. Vocals strained in places as other have said. Tempo of songs feel a bit rushed also. Worth a look, but not in the same league as Beast over Hammersmith or Live After Death.

Extremely beautiful material and great quality. Worth it for who is collector. And Amazon delivered without problems and very well packaged.

As far as live albums go this is pretty good with some classics on.

Long Live Kevin Shirley as Maiden's producer! He has taken a great concert and made it sound like it was done yesterday and not back in 1988. The sound is crisp. The Package is brilliant and if you're a Maiden fan it's a must.

A truly great album from Maiden. Plenty of songs from their early set that no longer feature live but relive the earlier years. Fantastic.
