'I Can't See My Feelings' is a cover song which originally appeared on
Budgie's 1975 album Bandolier. Budgie is a Welsh band originating from Cardiff
(and not Birmingham, as Rod says) that is great for providing cover material to modern day
metal artists – particularly with Metallica’s incredible covers of 'Breadfan' and 'Crash Course
in Brain Surgery'.
It is rumoured that Nicko once claimed in an interview that he'd never heard of this song!
Certainly many Maiden fans have not heard of it since Maiden's version was first available
only on the B-side of the From Here To Eternity
before it was made available on the
Best Of The B'Sides release in 2002.
Although this version is somewhat shorter than the original, it seems to be one of the better cover songs
that Maiden recorded in the early 90s.
Just a good solid track from a great Birmingham metal band who Maiden saw play live
a few times.
