I just tested my copy from the Queen meeting: Frequency analysis (eac) looks lossy.

Huge drop around 16000 Hz

Hi Pim,
This is a professionally pressed CD

Okay, but I'm the one now who is sharing the received fanclub-gift, if I didn't I'm almost sure that somebody else would do it soon or later.

Better share it for free than that other bootleg-labels are running away with it (for money)

I have to agree. Probably high quality MPEG, but definately lossy. What a shame.

Thanks for the share though.

It could've been transferred to minidisc in the 90s for all we know. I'm not entirely certain it's mp3-sourced.

Let's not forget that it's an uncirculated recording from 1974. This is definitely something that doesn't happen every day. For years this recording was something of legend, and here we are listening to it. Incredible, really. Thanks to everyone involved in getting this out for all to enjoy.

The latter. Someone spent the big bucks to get it pressed to silvers. A kind gesture to everyone who came to the convention, I'd say.

Exactly. You did the right thing to bring it here.

Thanks for that. Any bit of the story helps.

(edit - thanks to daylight savings time, this post now appears before Bokkepoot's long explanation about the tape source)
Posted by The Real Wizard user not visiting Queenzone.com
on 11/4/2012 1:03:00 AM
It's clearly seen in Cool Edit that the source for this silver pressing is mp3. Small gaps between tracks with mp3 artifacts and 16000 Hz adrupt cut.
MiniDisc compression has completely different kind (view) of cutting the frequencies. And it's not the one presented on this recording.

What can I say: Unfortunately this tape was poorly transfered from analog to digit. Compressed to mp3 without any kind of restoring and then pressed to silver in all it's lossy distorted glory. Pity.
Nothing to say more.

Rik Konijnenbelt (the person who has found the tape) was also on the convention to discuss how he did get the tape.
I'm talking now from my mind, but in big lines this did happen:
Back in 1974 it was common that all (or at leas lots) of concerts were taped in the "The Hague music scene". These recordings were also done in the congress gebouw (not into the audience).
People who did work in these places did swap these tapes with eachother. This must be happened also with the Queen tape. In the 90's a copy of the tape was offered for free to Rik Konijnenbelt and was stored in a box for many years without listening to it.
On the tape there is a moment that you hear the typical interference with a mobile phone, so the tape must be converted to another tape in the nineties.
Also is this concert not complete (only the A-side of a cassete-tape is transferred in the 90's); probably theconcert is taped complete ??
Rik has lost contact with the person who offered these recordings so at the moment: this is what it is.
Maybe the 90's transfer was done to a minidisc ?

@bokkepoot - interesting to hear about the hague scene gigs being recorded and swapped. I don't suppose you are aware of any recordings of Catapult from the same era doing the round have you?

Thanks for this torrent, I'm downloading now.

On the subject of silvers being pressed for this, my dad recently had some CDs made for his male voice choir. If you pay someone to do the work, break even point for silvers is 500 copies. Below this it is cheaper to have CD-Rs burned, above this it is cheaper per copy to have silvers made. He went for 1000 silvers since that's the maximum for a flat fee to the Performing Rights Society in the UK, above 1000 and you have to prove everything is out of copyright or specifically pay for rights which aren't.

Yes I had already found that thanks. On this occasion I feel like listening to it before and after the fixes being such an early recording.

Download rate on both torrents is terrible, averaging 0.5kB/s. Either everyone is traffic shaped or they've all turned down their upload rates for torrents that have reached 100%.
