There are some major shifts in sound throughout the show, and most notably between 'The Ides Of March' and 'Wrathchild', and between 'Twilight Zone' and 'Phantom Of The Opera'. Also, 'Remember Tomorrow' and 'Phantom Of The Opera' have a lot of static.

Paul speaks French in this show, so the authenticity of this being Turin is rather suspect. However, on Live In Reggio Emilia, which is one of the oldest traded live recordings, he also speaks French. Also, this show could actually be Gorizia 1981, and Gorizia could actually be Turin. No one knows for sure

The cover represents a picture of the Iron Maiden line-up of the early 1990s, but the concert is a bona fide Killers set. On this pretty good soundboard-quality recording, you can hear Paul Di'Anno saying a few words in French to the audience, which is why this bootleg is sometimes traded as Paris 1981. However, this is one of the oldest traded live recordings, and the "legacy factor" tends to indicate that this really is Reggio Emilia, especially since Paul has a history of speaking the wrong language in different countries

The Saarbrucken show is a fake and a mere collection of official B-sides being passed off as bootleg tracks. The band likely did not play a show in Saarbrucken on 20th April because the distance to Saarbrucken from Douvaine back to Toulouse is out of character for normal tour travel for that time. Additionally, there is no proof the band played or even made plans to play a show at this location or on this date.
There is some fade-out in between some of the tracks. The Dortmund tracks have a slightly lesser sound quality than the rest.

A bootleg called The Complete Heat is also being traded, with an extra track on it. It is in fact 'I've Got The Fire' from the 3rd April 1980 show in London. It was erroneously being passed around as the "complete" show, but the last track proved to be a fake. The Big Heat and The Complete Heat are both the same, complete show.

If Paul's last gig with Iron Maiden was indeed on 10th September 1981, it wasn't in Lund but in Copenhagen (Denmark). Here, there seems to be a mistake, either in the date or in the venue. Moreover, the cover pictures are of a Japanese audience, which is even more confusing. If you know anything about this bootleg, I'd appreciate if you could write to me to share this information. In any case, this bootleg also has some trouble with the stereo, as sometimes only one speaker works properly
