Bootleg CD: The South American Rise. Argentina gig from 1996.

This recording is one of the best bootlegs around from the 1995/96 X Factor world tour. Recorded live at Obras Sanitarias Stadium, Buenos Aires, Argentina on August 31Th, 1996, its probably a soundboard recording and has really a great sound.
As usual Blaze voice was a completely disgrace, out of tune in a lot of situations, weak voice, I still don't understand what Iron Maiden saw in Blaze voice and still don't understand as well why they didn't fire him after that tour since it was obvious that he was not the right man for the job. Its really painfull to hear him, and I just buy this bootlegs because the instrumental parts, I try to forget Blaze. He was constantly forgetting and mixing parts of some songs, specially Aftermath and Fortunes Of War, a real disgrace...
