Complete concert edition of the first night in Rio 1985. Under Pressure is slightly cut in the middle, but otherwise no cuts in the recording. A local TV station filmed the whole concert. The overall sound quality is B-. First part of the concert is only C+, but then it is getting better and comes close to rating B. It had gotten some tape hiss over the years and it's not very clear, but enjoyable. The image quality is enjoyable, but sometimes it can be a bit blury though. Very unusual that Freddie introduces Radio Ga Ga. There was a fight in the audience during Jailhouse Rock. You can clearly hear Freddie shouting several times to the audience that they must stop fighting and listen to the music. No copy errors. Not sourced from VCD/SVCD.
