I've never owned this concert, so I was excited by the new release having always heard that it was great. The sound quality is excellent for a 1988 recording, and the set list is incredible. I've never heard anything live from Iron Maiden that didn't sound fantastic, so it's not much of a surprise, but I'm glad they decided to re-release it in CD and DVD formats. If you're a Maiden fanatic, you couldn't be disappointed with the quality, and if you're a casual fan, it's a near-perfect documentation of their music up through Seventh Son, with songs from almost every album (sadly, nothing from Powerslave). The songs are performed in typically entrancing fashion, and the ecstatic crowd provides a compelling backdrop to Maiden's world-class music.
As a bonus for people who already owned the older version, the CD includes three encore songs that have never been released; Run to the Hills, Running Free, and Sanctuary. Also cool is that the inlay booklet includes full lyrics for each song and nice concert pics of the band. Performed nearly 25 years ago, this show displays Maiden at the height of their prowess, though I honestly don't think they've lost a step in all those years. Their last live album, En Vivo!, which focused on their most recent full-length, was stunning it its own right, but if you love classic Maiden (and who doesn't?), this CD provides 18 tracks of pure ear candy.
