2 stars Added here as a double CD live album, "A Real Live One" and "A Real Dead One" have been originally released as two separate live albums in 1993, just before the departure of Bruce Dickinson. The first album consists of songs from 1986 to 1992 and the second one includes only songs from the old days. However, the choice of the songs are the real problem here. On "A Real Live One", they chose too many songs from the No Prayer/Fear Of The Dark era, which are much less enjoyable than the songs on Somewhere In Time or Seventh Son. "A Real Dead One" has new songs compared to their previous live album "Live After Death", in particular more songs from their debut album ("Prowler", "Transylvania", "Remember Tomorrow", "Sanctuary") which is a good thing, but the fact that all songs were collected from different shows ruins the consistence of the song flow (which wasn't the case on "Live After Death").

Rating: 61/100 (2 stars)
