We need some to get anywhere.
They could have done that Foro, I mean, recorded to be used as the intro. Unfortunately the bootlegs don't offer a good enough quality to hear if the quality resembles the album. However if they did recorded it with Malone I would think they should have recorded it during the running free single version sessions.It is more logical that Ides was recorded during the album session because they had more time. They could have done it with the purpose on mind: let's do the intro, we need that as a tape for the show. That was a simple, concrete result. They did not need to record Wrathchild at the album session. They wanted to play that live, and did not wish to use it for the album either. Therefore there did not have to be a Wratchchild studio version connection.
If they recorded it at Muthas it was used earlier. Too bad we miss bootlegs. Well, I think I gave you a shitload of logical reasons. Let it sink in.
I'll see if I can do more research as well.
This is the sentence I deletedHowever little or dissatisfying, he still did production work for the band Iron Maiden.
Produced is an exact meaning. He did not produce any record for Iron Maiden because there's not a single credit to him, and that's what I wrote as a reason for deletion. Also the word is plural so it made the entire sentence highly misleading. As I don't have anything to do with this person, I don't know him, I just deleted it and didn't want to meddle with fixing it to be true, like "was unsuccessfully involved in production", because that would require quotations and I really don't care that much. My reason to delete stands firm as is and whoever is involved with his wiki page can try doing a better job.In the early 1980s, Scott went into production and produced records for bands including [[Iron Maiden]].
I would be sceptical about it being recorded at an unknown session. Ides of March is 1 minute long, I doubt they would have went to a studio to specifically record that alone, and I'd guess if they were recording other things at this mystery session nerds like us would have discovered information about it already LOLHow do you understand what he says? To me is pretty clear they rehearsed at the Hollywood Studios and the move to record after that.
As @GhostofCain says, I believe the mystery version was either recorded at one of the sessions we know of (a very knowledgeable person is adamant that this isn't the case) or in between these dates, but not on the IM sessions.
Thanks mate! It was really, really cool to have the help of pretty knowledgeable people willing to help and share their info so I can keep giving great details to my soon to be finsih book. Now all I need is someone willing to share at least some songs of a 1978 or 1977 concert
But Doug and Dennis never played together? When Dennis auditioned, Doug was already out?
Blimey, so not only did they deny him credits on The Soundhouse Tapes but also used the tape with him (and Doug) to open gigs? Cool.I corrected my original post about the origin of the mystery session after checking my notes. The version was recorded at a pre gig rehearsal at the Ruskin Arms on April 1979 and polished during the Running Free single sessions. The line up should have been Paul Di'Anno, Dave Murray, Paul Cairns, Steve Harris, Doug Sampson
Great sleuth work. I thank you for it!Hello everyone. In the past days I have make a LOT of effort to contact people who could help me clarify this matter and I have reached a conclusion thanks to the amazing people who have helped me. The mystery version of The Ides Of March was a live recording the band did at a rehearsal at The Ruskin Arms in April 1979 and polished to be used as an intro tape during the January sessions of 1980 (recordings of Running Free for the single).
