IRON MAIDEN - BBC Session 1979

This is to celebrate the one-week anniversary of me scoring a free ticket!!! to Iron Maiden's Somewhere Back in Time show down at the former Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, a couple hours south of Hollywood. It was a long-ass drive, note-for-note the exact same show at The Forum three months ago, and 1000% worth it.

It comprises only four tunes, mind you, but they are perfect and pristine. Hell, anything from the brief Paul DiAnno era is worth a spin, 'cause there sure ain't much of it.

Thanks as always to my bestest fwend and boot-brother over at The effin' Amazing, Astonishing, Unbelievable Ultimate Bootleg Experience. Up the Irons, mate!

Youtube is full of these guys falling off stage, slipping over, the power going mid show etc. They are more Spinal that Tapp themselves!
