His voice was very good in 1981 (especially in Samson songs like ''Communion'' and ''Riding With The Angels''). It's similar to his TNOTB voice.I love 1981 Bruce, for some reason these bootlegs from Italy are very high quality too
Yes, as far as I know it was played live in the 70s. With the Maiden77 site no longer around I can't find the exact piece of info anymore but I'm positive I had read there it was. Which is not the same as "I'm positive it was" admittedly.
Could this be what do you think,?Found a Word file where I've copypasted this from, presumably, Maiden77:
Iron Maiden Set list 4/4/1978
The Ides of March
Phantom of the Opera
The Pit (Became Innocent Exile)
But in any case, @Luisma should be able to answer this.
I’d go onstage and sing “Number of the Beast,” “The Trooper,” “Hallowed Be Thy Name,” and “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.” And to see the reaction from the fans…as shit and negative as that 20-hour journey was, to be there and sing these incredible songs that are legendary in the heavy-metal business, that was the thing that sustained me.
