Recorded live at Long Beach Arena in USA on March 14-17th, 1985, it's the first single for the band's third live album, "Live After Death" (1985).
Iron Maiden's World Slavery Tour was one of the longest and most extensive tours ever undertaken by a Rock band. Lasting from August 9, 1984, to July 5, 1985, and visiting such countries as Poland, Austria, Hungry, Yugoslavia, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Scotland, England, Germany, Sweden, Canada, Japan, and the U.S., the show included a mammoth setup that replicated the intricate ancient Egyptian scenery of the "Powerslave" album cover. As a "thank you" to the hundreds of thousands of fans who packed arenas the world over, the live album "Live After Death" was issued in 1985. "Live After Death" is easily one of Heavy Metal's best live albums ever. And this first single for upcoming album is a must have for every Iron Maiden fan!!
This is the only Iron Maiden release since the “Soundhouse Tapes” that doesn't have an Eddie on the cover.
Recorded from the original analogue master tapes.
