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

Ancient Mariner
Actually, I seem to remember it was the studio version with some audience noise dubbed in.

I didn't compare it to the death on the road version, I just listened to see if it sounded familiar so it probably is the studio version :lol:
 

Kalata

Out of the Silent Planet
I think it is important to note the following thing:

Aces High, Caught Somewhere In Time, Out Of The Silent Planet and The Final Frontier (Satellite 15...) - the intro of all those songs is never played live (it was played through the PA system).
 

Black Bart

The only exception to this would be "The Number of the Beast". When the spoken intro tape failed to start, Bruce made up by reciting the bit:

Some songs have minor changes live:

Sanctuary - the bit with the crowd participation just before the end of the song.
BYD... TTS - has a ''yeah-yeah'' intro from Bruce.
DOD - has a voice tape intro live.
TAATG - it was shorter live in 1998.
OOTSP - the intro was skipped in 2001.
MITRM - the intro was skipped in 2005.
FHTE - it was longer live in Donington '92.
Running Free and Drifter - both are longer live.
Paschendale - has a intro tape with sound effects and Bruce's voice.
WED and Revelations - have a intro tapes (LOTB tour + Early Days tour for WED too).

Sometimes there is only 1 verse after the solos in Killers and Where Eagles Dare live, and sometime the intro of Revelations is only played twice rather than 4 times.

If I'm not mistaken, ''Drifter'' was also changed live during the Early Days tour (at least in Ullevi 2005) - Adrian's solo was shorter and they added a third solo played by Janick just before the end of the song.

Update:

I decided to change this:

Invasion: 1, 2 (played on Adrian Smith's first concert @ Brunel University, Uxbridge, England (waiting for confirmation), and probably also on the next 1-3 gigs)
Women in Uniform: 2 (played on Adrian Smith's first concert @ Brunel University, Uxbridge, England; (waiting for confirmation), probably also on the next 1-7 gigs; at least it was played in Newcastle)


into:

Invasion: 1
Women in Uniform
: 2 (played in Newcastle, perhaps also on some other of Adrian Smith's first Maiden gigs
)
