This is the same version of 'Phantom Of The Opera' which appeared on the vinyl release of
Live After Death. However, it was not included on the original CD release,
which made the First Ten Years box set the first place where this version was
available on CD. This has been changed with the 1998 re-release of the album, which
includes all the tracks previously only available on vinyl. This song was therefore
one of the highlights of the First Ten Years box set, recorded at the Hammersmith
Odeon in October of 1984. It's one of the best Maiden songs ever written, and this live version
is without a doubt the highest quality live recording of the song.
