i bought this brand new back in 2002 as soon as a local shop here that specialized in hm/punk etc etc got this in upon its release. he got the uk versions and i still have mine, I NEVER UNSEALED THE THING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am aware of what is inside and it would not be long before i was able to get the 3 two cd sets and i wanted to keep the box perfect!!!!!!! point is this was iron maidens glory years, maiden did not do a bad record from the soundhouse tapes 45 in 1979 through powerslave in 1984, after that things got hit and miss and after all these decades im still a fan and i never miss a new maiden album so i have them all, i was very fond of the who cover of my generation and the ufo cover of doctor doctor in 1996 on the B side of the lord of the flies cd single and the vinyl to, sadly i feel the last best awesome killer maiden record was brave new world back in 2000, the past 17 years since the records have become a bit boring, i have not been to a maiden gig now in almost a decade since 2008 as by then i had seen them over a dozon times since the 1980s but this box set is one of my favorite maiden pieces as well as the VINYL edition of the best of the beast box set that was released back in 1996..............................................

OK, so I have the box with the blue color inside; however, my scroll is not numbered. I cannot see where this version is listed on here. Wikipedia states "Eddie's Archive was originally released as a limited edition, with the family tree numbered. However, due to demand, it was later re-released with a different colour inlay (changed from blue to red) and with the family tree unnumbered, in order to preserve the value of the original issue." Confused.

From a collectors POV ... Yes it's collectable ... from a musical standpoint ... erm ....... Not really because the donington gig is incomplete .. were given fraction of the set that was played that day ....... Surely to fuck BBC or someone at the label recorded the full gig

I have been able to find the Hammersmith&b-sides cds separately in a shop&on ebay respectively,the latter for a friend too. That's for those who don't want to splash out on the whole box set. The live cd is brilliant, with a killer setlist from the era ('82),great sound and excellent performances. The Bs less so,but are worth their money if a) you want to have EVERY song they have ever recored and b)you don't have any of their singles'(numerous) previous pressings.
