Iron Maiden: Sydney 2008. Acer Arena, Sydney, Australia 09.02.08

 

Description

 

 

Good recording, band in good mood this is one of the 2 versions I have from this show, this one is good but the other one is better, no mistakes on it just a little bit far sound.

 

TAPER’S NOTES: Finally, after 15 long years, Iron Maiden have graced us patient Australians with their presence. There's not much that needs to be said about this band - they really don't need any introduction. As for the recording itself, my greater concern was the highly charged audience. Nobody even in the seated areas sat down once! A lot of cheering, screaming and clapping went on which made it all the more difficult for me to keep it to a low. Add to that the sound guy's average mix of the sound with excessive midrange and the vocals being set too hot (not that I'm one to complain about Bruce Bruce!), I had a serious challenge on my hands with the post-production processing on this one. I guess I'm just never satisfied with any of my work, no matter what I hear from all of you kind folk. Anyway, I realise this is probably one of many releases of the same concert but I'm still happy to contribute. Enjoy! All feedback appreciated.

...and please, don't sell this bootleg, otherwise you're just plain old scum.
