Iron Maiden songs – a rough overview of their “live history”

Here's an old school thread about the different versions of Drifter on the original UK 7 inch of sanctuary

http://forum.maidenfans.com/threads/drifter-live-one-and-sanctuary-b-side.11190/#post-125876

there was an upload on youtube of it, I'll see if I can find both versions and post them.

EDIT:
here's the familiar version

and here's the version from the original 7 inch


Judging from the guitar solo starting around 1.55 in the first version and around 2:44 in the second, they are both edits of the same source recording as the solos are identical

RE: edited versions, not sure if it's entirely relevant as ultimately the source recording is the same, but there's also an edited version of Running Free that was on the original 1 disc CD version of Live after Death, that has the singalong section edited out.

Okay, I'll leave it as it is, then, because the edits may be different, but the recording is the same.

DIFFERENT WORLD
09.11.2006, Gigantium, Aalborg (19): Different World (Digital)
[NOTE: Aalborg performance may need to be verified]

IIRC, Bruce says "Good evening Aalborg" during the fade. That is where I got that the recording is from Aalborg. ;)

According to Wiki, this is a "previously unreleased" live version... I guess somebody needs to listen to this version to be able to identify it (shouldn't be hard, the LAD version is iconic enough to positively identify it). I unfortunately never had the LP version.

It did not strike me as a previously unreleased version back in day, as I remember it sounding exactly like the Live After Death recording. I have not listened to the Best of the Beast 4LP box set for ages though.

Thanks a lot, srfc, didn't know that.

"Different World" (Recorded live in Aalborg on the A Matter of Life and Death tour, 9 November 2006) (Smith, Harris) – 4:15

@srfc correct, my mind was on the videos when I replied.

Agree, it's questionable. I also included the BBC1 Legends sessions. But they're not really studio recordings in the strict sense either.

Wasted Years from Germany TV is definitely questionable too LOL !

Introduction
The following list is intended as an addendum to Forostar's list of Maiden songs played live. It contains all officially released live recordings by Iron Maiden, song by song, with date, venue and official release on which it can be found. The numbers after the date/venue refers to the tour segments determined by Forostar.
The album and video versions of Live After Death have been seperately listed, as they contain different performances. Otherwise, the albums and videos are not distinctly marked, as they are identical. An exception has only been made for Beast Over Hammersmith, because the video found on The Early Days is only a part of the entire set, which is complete on the CD release in Eddie's Archive. A Real Live/Dead One has been treated as two separate albums.
In case of diverging track lists, different pressings and issues of live singles and EPs have been noted. The different versions of Live After Death (album) and Maiden England are not taken into account, as the currently available versions are complete. Mere reissues (including The First Ten Years box set) have not been taken into account, although compilation albums have. I am aware that a lot of work has yet to be done to make this list perfect, and any participation and contribution is more than welcome.
A list of open questions is found at the end. As I currently do not have access to all my Maiden files, some very simple questions (such as comparing two live versions) could not be answered, and I would be grateful if someone could help out here. Also, if someone owns relevant bootlegs and can check some of the disputed or uncertain dates, this would be an invaluable contribution.

The live recordings from Eddie's Archive, The Early Days and Live After Death (DVD) have been named as such:
Live at the Ruskin Arms (Early Days Disc 2, Eddie's Lockup)
BBC Radio 1 Friday Rock Show (Eddie's Archive, The BBC Archives Disc 1, part 1)
Reading 1980 (Eddie's Archive, The BBC Archives Disc 2, part 1)
Reading 1982 (Eddie's Archive, The BBC Archives Disc 1, part 2)
Donington 1988 (Eddie's Archive, The BBC Archives Disc 2, part 2)
Rock in Rio 1985 (Live After Death DVD Disc 2)

-Is the version of Sanctuary on the Running Free single identical to Live After Death VHS?

No (verified against the DVD though). Didn't check through the whole tracks but he definitely sings "but i know how it feels" more elaborate and high pitched on the Running Free 12 inch. Sleeve notes says recorded at Long Beach March 1985

-What recording of Iron Maiden is on Ed Hunter?

Live after Death version audio not video

-When was Murders in the Rue Morgue on the Running Free single recorded?

It says Hammersmith on the record. There is a bootleg called "Ipswich Murders", but I checked this and it is not the same as the Running Free single.

-What dates are the individual recordings of the Clive Burr MS Trust Fund gigs (Brixton Academy)?

It doesn't have dates listed on the cds that I can see


-Is NOTB from Aces High single really Dortmund 1983?

Yes, he says "i'll make Dortmund burn"

-Accurate information on recordings of HBTN and FOTD singles required

FOTD live is the version on a real live one, not sure what info you need from HBTN, the a-side is Moscow, Trooper is Helsinki, Wasted Years bremen 16th April 1993, wrathchild is helsinki again

-Where was Afraid to Shoot Strangers with Blaze recorded? Are the versions on BOTB, AATG and VOTB identical?

The multimedia section of AATG won't play on my PC anymore, software too old I presume, but my memory is it was the same video from VOTB,
The audio of the video on VOTB is the same as BOTB.
BOTB lp says 1st nov 1995 Goteborg for the audio, video footage is november 1995 on X factour according to visions of the beast


-When and where was the live version of Wrathchild on First Ten Years/From There to Eternity/VOTB recorded?

all are Live at the Rainbow, same audio

-Is Running Free on The First Ten Years and From There to Eternity live? Identical to Live After Death VHS?

yes same audio


Revelations on Best of the Beast LP is Live after Death version, from the audio version, i.e. starts with "nice to see you, to see you, nice"
