Comment:

Audience recording from the first night at the Wembley Arena during the European Works Tour. It has very good sound quality, but it has some distortion and it has digital clicks throughout the whole recording. This version comes from a Japanese bootleg label called Gypsy Eye. They played a very small part of the song Not Fade Away, although Freddie sings only the intro.. Very good performance of Jailhouse Rock. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

This version comes directly from the master tape and sounds better than the above copy from Gypsy Eye. Before letting it out, the taper made some intentional cuts and messed around with it on many places. As a result the intro of the concert is mostly missing here and Bohemian Rhapsody is slighty cut from the beginning. Also God Save The Queen misses a bit now. Huge thanks to Bob for correcting many of the edits done on purpose by the taper and correcting the pitch, please see his comment below. No errors. Not from mp3.


Bob's comment:

The tape begins with it being panned about 50% to the right, and part way through Tie Your Mother Down the balance is restored. At the end of Somebody To Love the left channel is lowered almost to silence, and it slowly returns back to normal as Keep Yourself Alive progresses. Similarly the right channel is manipulated for much of Dragon Attack, and then the left channel is lowered again for some of Stone Cold Crazy. These are all analog edits, as the level of tape hiss remains constant. A minute and a half of tape is missing at the beginning of the show, ten seconds are chopped off the top of Stone Cold Crazy, and a combined 15 seconds of tape are missing before and after Bohemian Rhapsody. God Save The Queen fades out ten seconds prematurely. The first 9 songs played too quickly, which has been corrected. I also EQ'd it, as it was pretty sharp in the top end to the point of being piercing in the heavier spots.

Comment:

Great sounding audience recording and comes from an alternate master tape. It has a very enjoyable sound quality. Overall it's a bit unstable here and there with some slight distortion, but nothing major. I Want To Break Free is slight cut from the beginning as it misses about 30 seconds, but otherwise complete concert. The last minute of Now I'm Here comes from the first source because it was missing on this second source. No copy errors. There are some tape speed problems during We Are The Champions. I got this master recording from the taper himself, but somehow he was not able to convert it to a lossless digital source. Unfortunately, I lost contact with the taper...
