5.0 out of 5 stars Caught Somewhere in Time August 6, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The Maiden Japan EP was released in August 1981 - recorded in Japan earlier in the year - and was the vinyl swan song for lead vocalist Paul Di'Anno.

Geared to the Japanese marketplace, it was a four-song 45 rpm there, though a five-song set was issued in the United States and other nations. This expanded edition of nearly an entire set was a fan club promotion recorded from the Nakano Sun Plaza Hall in Tokyo.

A rare item, the concert captures the band in regal form and delivering a high-octane performance. It is an excellent coda for the 1978-1981 band, which set the stage for an incredible run as international arena rock icons in the 1980s.

I love Maiden but I thought I was getting 1980s Maiden Japan the full concert with Paul Dianno. It was the 7 song ep .Alot of money for it ,but I needed it for my collection. If you like Maiden I reccomend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rare, Expensive, But Worth All Cost September 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Many Maiden fans remember the original Maiden Japan ep from back in the early 80's. Even then it was hard to come by. The ep only had five tracks running in this order:

1 Running Free

2 Remember tomorrow

3 Wrathchild

4 Killers

5 Innocent Exile

The cd issue is very nice, remastered and expanded to 17 tracks!

1 Wrathchild

2 Purgatory

3 Sanctuary

4 Remember Tomorrow

5 Another Life (w. drum solo)

6 Genghis Khan

7 Killers

8 innocent Exile

9 Twilight Zone

10 Strange World

11 Murders in the Rue Morgue

12 Phantom of the Opera

13 Iron Maiden

14 Running Free

15 Transylvania (w. guitar solo)

16 Drifter

17 I've Got The Fire

Wow! What a collection of early Maiden...all performed by the original band! I still prefer the Beast Over Hammersmith set, but only because I lean towards Bruce. But Maiden Japan is totally worthwhile, even if it costs too much.
