    Nice bootleg quality for a legendary gig

    Side 4 is strong too

    Highly recommended for the real fans of New Wave Of British Heavy Metal

      While the sound quality isn’t the greatest, for a bootleg it’s not bad. My copy is pressed on two 180 gram vinyl discs.. It plays perfectly and looks as good as anything I’ve ever seen. Maybe they weren’t all made this way, but mine appears to have been done very well with high quality vinyl. The album cover is awesome.. although I wish they had made it with a gatefold. Either way, the print work is professional looking, and I say that as a professional lithographer with 20 years experience. The labels are really killer.. Maiden Japan era artwork by Riggs. It’s really a shame that the band didn’t release a full length live album from that lineup. As a hardcore fan of the early Maiden days, this is a must have for me. I paid $36 for it and woulda paid more with no regrets. If anyone does find a copy, just keep in mind this is a bootleg and the sound quality is not going to match an official release. But as bootlegs go, its really not bad at all.

        This is one of the most widely bootlegged Maiden recordings. The release is made very cheap. The cover is pretty nice but the records themselves cheap. The vinyl itself is full of dimples. The labels are cool looking though. I would say if you can find this for $25 grab it up for your collection. But don't pay more than that. I just bought it for $24 from don't get ripped off for double or triple this.
