Iron Maiden - Live At Donington
Recorded at "The Monsters Of Rock"-festival at Donington Park in 1992, is the 3rd(!) live album released by Maiden in 1993. A bit too much I think. But there's a video-release of it as well. That kind of makes it worthwhile getting.

There's not much to say about this double album. Originally released as a limited edition Double-CD, Double-cassette and Triple-vinyl. Now in the remastered version, it's available to everybody, and now with booklet and decent cover. Something the original release lacked. A lot! Even though many of the numbers are can be found on the previous release, "A Real Live Dead One", this is a different recording. You haven't heard these song anywhere else before. "But is it good enough, to spend my hard and well earned money on?", you ask. Yes and no. Yes, because it's a great recording that really captures an entire Maiden show. And some of the songs are really great live-versions. And no because you have all the tracks on the previous album(s). Except "Wrathchild", that for some reason isn't on "A Real Dead One". Strange! This is definitely a fan release. You still have doubts? If this will help: Adrian Smith appears as guest on the last track. Quite cool. But 3 guitars? That will never work. J
