Track list


In 1988, the label Noise Records dealt with Manor Mobile to record three shows to make a live album. Finally they released Live In UK mini-LP with seven tracks mainly to promote the new tour at States. One of these three shows was Manchester. At the end most of Live In Uk was the show of Edinburg in Scotland but they had a few technical problems with radio microphones so they used two tracks of Manchester show.

In 2006 Kai Hansen contacted with label Sanctuary, which was re-releasing other albums of Helloween in that year, to know if they would plan to release the full show.

Kai Hansen: "We recorded 3 live concerts in UK [Edinburg, Manchester and Birmingham].  It was very good stuff with a lot of quality. We recorded the complete gigs. I have this cassettes at home and we want to released a double cd. Finally we become disappointed when it was released with only 7 songs. It was a shame!! So I said to Sanctuary that this is the perfect time to edit the full show as they are now re-releasing albums. I don't know the specifics of the record deal but I would like to see this stuff released".
