DI'ANNO Live From London
Iguana Project IPDVD003 (2005)
Much Overlooked AOR project from original Maiden vocalist....

Bit of a cash in, this DVD, making the most of the for Iron Maiden singerís credentials, and cheaply done too, with only a 1 hour running time and very little extras. That said, this 1984 gig will allow fans to see the short lived DiíAnno project on stage.

Most fans at this gig give a rather lame reaction, clearly expecting plenty of hard and raw Maiden material and not being familiar with DiíAnnoís first solo album, an American styled highly polished rock set, with keyboards. A far cry from anything heís ever done before or since.

That said, itís a tight and well performed set, the twin guitars producing a full sound, and the keyboards adding an extra dimension. Poor Paul does look like a fish out of water though, despite the excellent music.

Most of that ill fated (and now quite collectable) album is played, along with a couple of numbers from a second album that never appeared. Value there for the aficionado, and a much glossed over part of Maiden history but probably passable for all but the most ardent Maiden fan.

Why should I buy this CD?

Good music if lame in Maiden comparison, polished and previously undocumented.
