2 stars Sanctuary is the second single from Iron Maidenīs debut album and itīs a more worthy purchase than Running Free IMO. Well thatīs if you only have the original LP version of the debut like me because the CD versions I have seen includes Sanctuary on the tracklist.

Sanctuary is a real Iron Maiden rocker and a great one that is. In addition to Sanctuary this single has two live songs recorded at the Marquee in London sometime in 1980. Drifter is done in an audience participation mode where the crowd sings along and Iīve got the Fire which is a real rocker too is done with conviction. There is a real powerful and raw energy in the live songs allthough the sound quality isnīt the best.

Even though I think this is a much better purchase than the Running Free single itīs still a fan thing and Iīll rate Sanctuary 2 stars. Of course if youīre a fan this is still a very worthy purchase.

UMUR | 2/5 |
