These two are among the earliest Iron Maiden videos you can get. In the first one, the band with the second-to-original lineup (Paul Di’ Anno, Steve Harris, Dave Murray, Andrian Smith and Clive Burr) is playing the epic Phantom of the Opera (from their debut album) at the Rainbow club circa 1980. Definitely one of the top Iron Maiden songs ever. A total masterpiece, and Di’ Anno really ‘owns’ this song.

This awesomely remastered video of Iron Maiden performing live in Germany from early 1981 is just amazing. Shows the roots of the band and justifies Paul Di’Anno saying it was a metal punk band. And most songs sound even better than the studio versions. A truly brilliant performance of four gifted musicians and a great singer. Clive Burr on drums just rocks. Just listen his take on Phantom of the Opera.
