Made In England 1988
on 20 March 2017
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.
