Live After Death



Recorded 8, 9, 10 and 12 October 1984 at Hammersmith Odeon, London; and 1417 March 1985 at Long Beach Arena, Ca.
Released 14 Oct 1985
Produced by Martin Birch

Tunes

Aces High
Two Minutes to Midnight
The Trooper
Revelations
Flight of Icarus
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Powerslave
The Number of the Beast
Hallowed be They Name
Iron Maiden
Run to the Hills
Running Free
Wrathchild
22 Acacia Ave.
Children of the Damned
Die With Your Boots On
Phantom of the Opera

Being that Live After Death is a necessary, classic, and sacred live album, I felt obligated to include it in these polls. I went with 2 Minutes. The energy and intensity of that song is splendid here.

Since this is a bonus round I didn't bother publishing it as a poll. Besides, the max # entries is 15 and we have 17 tracks to work with.

I really like the way Bruce intros "Revelations" about hanging a pair of curtains and at the end you hear an audience member yell mother#cker. Great show. Probably my all time fave live album.

I think Bruce is out of tune on a lot of this album, but I still love it. My favorite is "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner."

Yeah even Bruce himself admitted that his voice was shot at this point of the tour, and was a bit weak on the album. It's kind of odd that they chose Long Beach, a date toward the end of the tour, for the majority of LAD. Why not stick to a show earlier on--like Hammersmith--when he's not so worn? Although props to the band for keeping the overdubs minimal.

I love the pick against the strings mimicking a creaking ship on Rime.

"And the moral of this story is this is what not to do if a bird..."

Such a popular album, it seems everyone had this one.

They recorded Long Beach because they wanted me to be on the record.

To be honest, I only really enjoy watching this show; listening to the album leaves me feeling a bit empty.

I recorded this on DVDr from a showing on some random concert doc-channel, oh probably, 8 years ago or so, and can remember just being blown away. Adrian and Dave's twin guitar being pulled off live, Bruce's stage antics and vocals, Steve's rumbling galloping bass, and Nicko's insane drumming all came together perfectly to leave 11-year old me in awe. And it still kicks ass, unlike most other musical acts middle schoolers enjoy, haha.

Flight of Icarus is my favorite track from here. Just a killer performance.

One of the greatest live albums ever, released after the live album era was over. Tough choice, but probably Rime, played at a frantic pace. Phantom is the top choice from the Hammersmith tracks.
