He probably sounds a little rough on LAD because when they recorded that album, they had been on the road for like 9 months straight, and playing around 6 nights a week. I would have to go back and look at the tour schedule to see for sure. The Powerslave tour was so long and demanding, it's a miracle Bruce could sing at all after that trek. I believe it lasted more than a year, like I said I would have to go back and look at the tour dates. Most of that album was recorded at the Long Beach shows, which was very late in the tour. Plus Aces High was the first song, his voice wasn't warmed up yet and it got better as the album went on.
