    Amazing guitar intro! One of the best b-sides Maiden made. The vocals are superb.

    Yeah, if this wasn't a cover, i think it would deserve a place as a regular album track!

    Great song indeed.

    I know on the commentary it says that Steve didn't play on the track but I can definitely hear steve.

    I'd like to know from what reference Maverick figured that out.
    It also says that Dave didnt play, and i can hear his solo loud and clear in the middle of the fucking song!

    Besides, from Smallwood :

    ...and there's no chance in hell that Steve would put a studio recording where he doesn't play on official Maiden release.
    The only official recordings without Steve (AFAIK) are Walking On Glass and Listen With Nicko series. One is a guitar performance, other is one-man spoken stuff.

    also S15, I think the only reason S15 and TFF arn't listed as 2 tracks is because Steve doesn't play on the forum.

    Dave is obviously on it (probably only the solo) but why Steve isn't?

    This info came from the band themselves.
    If we want to believe Nicko, he said it in Listen to Nicko Part VIII:

    If I understand well, then this also counts for Juanita and probably Reach Out (because he speaks of three songs, and Reach Out was also one of the Entire Population songs).

    Looks to me that Harris and Murray just quick-learned and did their tracks after Smith and McBrain laid down the "template".
    There's both of them on that tracks, there's no doubt about it, they both have distinct instantly recognizable sound!

    I told you guys how he figured it.

    @Zare, I hear Dave's solo but how do you recognize other tracks being done by him?

    I never said anything about Reach Out / Juanita  B)

    Check out the FM version here (videoclip).

    Sounds more commercial but I really like the instrumentation on this one.  :shred:

    Me too! The guy who plays the solo on this live version is Andy Barnett (Urchin, A.S.a.P) who co-wrote the track but he wasn't a FM band member until 1990. I kept wondering about that fact. But it is so easy:

    Of course, in first instance, the track was not written for FM: it was especially written for The Entire Population of Hackney project.
    + (from SiaSL single wiki):
    Here is the full Indiscreet album, from 1986. (Haven't heard it myself yet). Lead guitars are by Chris Overland (brother of lead singer Steve).

    Very late reaction, but I chanced upon this, and I'm wondering if this is an OFFICIAL release of Walking on Glass. Could someone give me the info please ?

    There isn't any official recording, nor release, of Maiden's Walking on Glass version.

    Thanks for the quick answer Foro. Reading Zare's statement, I wondered how I could have missed such a thing.

    I forgot to add at the time, @Forostar --do you think this little opening Buckethead riff sort of sounds similar?
