Album Commentary

 

The 12" poster-sleeve LP version of the single has a different cover picture than the CD and is missing a track from the CD version, although there is an extra track to replace it. This is probably the most complex of Maiden's very few photograph cover pictures, taken from the video. It appears to be hell, with a fat naked devil on a Harley surrounded by voluptuous female demons. Bikers and their bikes line the walls of the chamber, suggesting a medevial court with nobles surrounding the king. Perhaps this picture is somewhat of a parody on the theme of 'From Here To Eternity'. The chorus "Hell ain't a bad place, hell is from here to eternity" would seem to conflict with the semi-traditional biker-hell that is portrayed in the picture. What has become of the eternity metaphor?

Rod Smallwood's comments are taken from the Best Of The B'Sides album booklet included in the Eddie's Archive box.

Budgie – Bandolier '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 picture disc 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.
