The sound quality is not too bad, considering that this was a very early gig of the bands. Some clicks can be heard, indicating that this is an analog recording. This bootleg is a very important piece in a proper Maiden collection, as it is the oldest live recordings of the band available. Steve Harris claims that he has earlier recordings taken during pub gigs as far back as 1976, but it is very unlikely that he will make them available to a broader audience!

Some collectors claim that this is a different show, played on 17th September 1979, but Di'Anno's speeches are the exact same at the exact same spots as on Maiden Music Machine above. However, this sounds like it came from a different taper, and this version features 'Innocent Exile', which is not on the other version.

  (Gogmagog)
'Strange World' skips for 1–1.5 seconds, then is split into a second track after a 3-second pause. 'Iron Maiden' is badly spliced twice, cutting it short. Paul has some problem with his voice and does not reach the high notes.
The last two songs are bonus songs have been added to this CD. There is Bruce's rendition of 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' with a band called Godspeed, a track that can be found on the Nativity In Black Black Sabbath tribute album. The second one is a song by Gogmagog with the following line-up: Paul Di'Anno (voice), Janick Gers (guitars), Pete Willis (guitars) [ex-Def Leppard], Neil Murray (bass) [ex-Black Sabbath & Whitesnake], Clive Burr (drums). This song appears on a 3-track single released in 1985, with two songs written by the producer, and one by Russ Ballard.
There is a re-mastered version of this bootleg with a slightly better sound.

As Paul had throat problems, Steve took over the vocals on the songs marked with an asterisk. 'Strange World' has a cut, and then a cut/splice that shortens the song. 'I've Got the Fire' is cut short. Interestingly, 'Transylvania' was played twice. As this is the only bootleg available with Steve singing, it is very special despite the rather poor sound quality.
There is a remastered version called Maiden Voyage Revisited that has a slightly better sound quality.
