MAIDEN ENGLAND- STUFF OF LEGEND!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maiden England '88 (Audio CD)
At last a full and proper release for one of the best, most, sought after Maiden concerts,i've had this since the original vhs/cd package was released as part of the 'sound and vision' series,alongside the likes of Marillion/Black Sabbath.
For the first time all the tracks are part of the CD release,now a double disc,the missing encores and tracks only previously available on the video.
Sound quality is improved significantly on this edition,the full potency of Maiden in full flight,i've always believed this tour (and) release are easiliy the equal of 'LIVE AFTER DEATH',finally this edition confirms it.Highlights for me will always be the 'Seventh Son' tracks,here they sound superb while the lesser played tracks such as 'Killers' are a welcome addition.
I cant recommend this high enough, Maiden in all their pomp,worth every penny.

Really looking forward to listening to this one, I was given this yesterday as a gift; the setlist is near perfect. Classic Maiden. And it has Still Life!

Amazing concert Mr. B and as you say, easily stands alongside Live After Death. This is a classic live album.

hello , yes its superb ,glad you liked it,some folks get a bit annoyed if 'Live After Death' is not the one and only reference point for maiden,this is definitely its equal.
'Still Life' an un heralded classic,one of those tracks that slips by most,its really quite brilliant
regards Mr B
