Surely you can find one? Do you not have any second hand vinyl shops nearby? I realise right now isn't the time, but when we're back to normal.

You'll barely find anything on the CD cover!

We have one that might have it and I’m going to check for it as soon as things get back to normal. I’ve been meaning to look for a copy for years. The only vinyl copies I own are Piece Of Mind, Killers, and Powerslave.

The Somewhere In Time cover (and back) is really great, too. I like that Blade Runner influence, also for the stage on the tour and the intro which was music from the movie.

I will say this much, I think they have some of the creepiest but yet compelling album out there. When I was younger, some of the covers freaked me out a bit .

Gotta be this.

They've had a load of awesome covers, but that one is far and away the most awesome if you ask me. Riggs really went all-out on it. (The fact it's so good probably factors into it being my favourite Maiden album too.)

I'd probably put Powerslave in a firm second place, followed by A Real Dead One.

It’s sad that they don’t use the original artist anymore.

Yeah, sad news.

Maiden albums never sounded even half as good after he stopped producing them.

I'm actually kinda glad they did one for this tour, seeing as it was geared specifically at classic live stuff they've not done for a while or very often. The setlist had some awesome stuff in it. I was desperate to go but unfortunately didn't get the chance.

I've skipped on most of their live stuff since Rock in Rio but I'll pick this one up.
