Hey, the reels look VERY familiar :-)
Did we buy from the same eBay seller ? :-)

Could you compare it please to my transfer of Sikke's tape ?

Although similar in size this version is cleaner to me, let me know what you think if you get a chance to compare.

Please note, this is a raw version here, no work at all done on it from my end.

There can't be any other source for this show other than video feed.

So then who went out of their way to create an extra generation by dubbing the video to a reel tape?

It's unlikely to be another source since it is the exact same mix as the video feed. I remain curious.

Either way, thanks for the share Mark.

Oh, this guy ...

I hope it didn't cost you too much.

I still hear digital flaws galore in the sound. It's nothing but the existing versions dubbed to reel tapes.

I'm sure he invested some money to have the dubbing done, but he sure made good money on these sales. There is little doubt these were very recently dubbed, likely in someone's basement.

You sure It's the same guy? I checked this guys history before purchase, and the only other tape he sold was to Peter.
The rest of his stuff is all official Queen merchandise, rare-ish Queen vinyl etc. This guy is UK based.

There was another guy based in USA selling Queen Reel to Reels two weeks ago on ebay,  he was well dodgy, I retracted a bid on a 80 minute reel of  Queen live 1976, I noticed he sold the exact same reel 6 weeks previous, he had about five Queen Reels some U2, Geneses, etc.

Cost me £40, was surprised that won it tbh, compared to other sales for reels.

If it was a Breakdown or Tarantura boot or one of the other labels it would have been £50-£80 for the same recording.

Regardless of it's issues, this is the best version shared yet, worth it in my opinion.

Just one. The seller promised me he will say me when he gets the rest of his tape transferred and I never heard from him again. Now I know why, Mark made a better offer :-)

I'm checking the spectral view in Cool Edit Pro. There are basically no frequencies over 12kHz, which is pretty strange, but not mp3-sourced.

Just fluked on it on ebay tbh, I spend more time on there than is healthy:-)

The mp3 sample did sound cleaner than the 4 other samples I had so I took a risk, It paid off slightly.

I also asked the seller to contact me if he has other audio or video, I have a feeling he might have stuff a gen or two better than what is shared here. I could be proved very wrong though.
That's the fun in it.

I would urge anybody buying reel to reel tapes to exercise extreme caution, people are taking advantage.

Hmmm.
I too had contact with him, but with the exception of a couple of recordings which he said would be added later, there was nothing that wasn't available on video. I came to the conclusion that he's probably played a blinder and copied some videos onto reel tapes, spun a yarn and collected a cool £300+ from everyone who bid.
Almost wish I'd thought of it....

I always look at the spectrum of the wav file.
EAC is reliable.

Ok, thanks! I love this concert btw.
I like the way it was filmed too, lots of close-ups, filmed at the front of the stage, you feel part of the audience watching this video. We have never seen or heard anything 'official' from this concert, is it?

@ Jack

Yeah, I really love the video from this show very well shot in my humble opinion with great energy in the performance, shame the only available sources seem to be vcd sourced. There is a better version out there somewhere, that's for sure. Still looking for it though, no leads.

if anyone checks the online catalogue of the venezuelan national library (took 5 mins) , you will find that they have the 1 hour TV special on video for local loan. So I can easily imagine the source for both of the concert and the tv special is the national library.
I did not found the concert itself, so it is even likely that some people asked for a new transfer to be made from the libraries umatic master tapes (not necessarily the actual TV master tapes of course), because the initial transfer as we all know is a crappy conversion in term of colours. So some local contacts should be able to check if the conversion is ready and a vhs / dvd is available for rent. Talking about venezuela, I guess for 50 USD they even sell the master tapes... :-> anyone planning a tourist trip there? :>

My apologies I forgot all about your share. I should also have said betamax rather than vcd in my comment above. Do you know if the VHS supplied to you was a transfer from the known betamax source? From what I have been led to believe the poor quality is the result of a not so perfect transfer from betamax to vhs.

I'm dying to see a decent copy of this show!!!! :)

The master tape is U-matic > tv broadcast(Betamax) > VHS > digitalized (DVD5)

It looks to me that the VHS was filmed from a TV-screen, that's perhaps why the colors are so dark and the sound looks like it's coming from a telephone.

Yeah, it's about time they release this concert. Hope they also have multi-track audio tapes: so they can put the audience noise higher in the mix. But that is unlikely I think.

i dont the know the lineage but this is cannot be right
At that time in 1981 it must be umatic or some 1" video tape -> unknown final cut for umatic (unless it was cut live which i doubt) -> umatic transfer/betamax transfer for the library as final cut . no tv broadcast there or tv screen recording; the crappy colours are due to some limited colour depth conversion, ie colours reduced to 256 or 64 or similar, 8bit or lower
as for the dark colours, soundcheck is also very dark and its properly converted, probably the camera equipment was not sensitive enough (1981 south america....)
edit: the superior beta sp was not released until 1982. so probably umatic was the original recording format.
edit2: looking at the footage again, it might have been edited live then the video mix was recorded on to umatic or some 1" format and a umatic copy was given to library; just my theory
