I have seen this posted as Maiden Japan: special edition, only it has the additional song of "I've Got the Fire" as the final song. The songs are otherwise the same versions. Do you know if that added song is also from the same show as The Big Heat, or is it from the original Miaden Japan show, or, perhaps from elsewhere?

Hi greg

I'm not completely certain, "I've Got the Fire" was only performed on some shows.
Also this Maiden Japan: special edition, that i think was only edited in Japan, brought some confusion since it appears to be from day 24 and i have the info that the original EP was from the 23rd...

Thanks for this. Dickinson is the man, but this era was special too.

Strange. I'm able to extract all tracks except 1 and 3. For (only) those it says wrong password. The rest extract just fine... Weird.

Iron Maiden is one of the most popular bands around the world... They will coming soon in my country... I've made one video (about one trip of my career) with his music of background that I've upload to my blog, that sing is "The trooper"
