Bruce Dickinson: (1995) Alive in Studio A

Perhaps second only to Rob Halford, Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson was the most acclaimed and instantly recognizable vocalist to emerge from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement of the early-'80s. Born Paul Dickinson on August 7, 1958, in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, he adopted the first name Bruce as a youngster for reasons unknown. Shortly after relocating to Sheffield as a teenager, Dickinson became enamored of such '70s heavy metal bands as Deep Purple, and after an attempt at becoming a drummer didn't work out, he began singing in local bands -- Styx (not the renowned American band of the same name), Speed, and Shots. But none of these bands broke out of regional status, something that would change when Dickinson fronted his next band, Samson.
Alive in Studio A is a double-disc set that finds the former Iron Maiden singer running through solo material and Maiden classics not only live in the studio, but also at the Marquee club. Both sets are tight and powerful, but the Marquee disc benefits from the presence of an actual audience, and, when taken together, the set proves that Dickinson could still rock as hard in the mid-'90s as he did in the early '80s. ~~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
