Before Bruce Dickinson joined the mighty Iron Maiden, he was the lead vocalist in Paul Samson's band. Although these days of his career tend to go overlooked by most, they are actually an excellent phase of his career that is worth checking out if you're a fan of his. The last concert he did with the band was recorded and released as a live album. Read on for my review of Live At Reading '81.
-If you want a live album that captures the energy of the band, as only a live recording could do, this release will be perfect for you.
-The band plays most of their big hits.
-Every member of the band is in their prime here.
-This album (and every other Samson recording) is extremely hard to find. If you want this, you're probably going to have to order it.
-The sound quality could have been better.
-Many of the songs fail to top their studio counterparts.
Overall, this is very good release from Samson. I wish it was more readily available, though. If you're a fan of Bruce Dickinson's and you want to see what he did in his pre-Maiden days, pick up this album. It's doubtful you'll be disappointed with it. Also, don't forget about the studio albums he released with them!
