Queen
Frankfurt, Germany
Festhalle
December 14, 1980

Here's an upgrade of the Frankfurt 80 recording. I know a better version exists with a wider stereo sound, but this is definitely the lowest generation copy I've heard yet (a friend of mine traded for the tape from a German collector in 1984). This is a great, energetic show from the boys. Listen to Brian mess up on the piano at the beginning of Save Me. It takes a few seconds for he and Freddie to synch together again. This is probably the best recording of Queen's rendition of Imagine we'll ever hear. This is also one of the best recordings of Battle Theme. It didn't last long in their live set, as they dropped it after the Japanese '81 shows.

I've also added God Save The Queen is from from the "Imagine" bootleg on the Gypsy Eye label. They used the common source as well, and added Sheer Heart Attack and GSTQ from an inferior alternate source. But unfortunately, the two discs are plagued with digital clicks and noise. GSTQ luckily didn't have too many clicks, so I was able to clean most of that one up, but it was impossible to salvage SHA (if it even is genuinely from Frankfurt).

Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered, and always include the lineage information. As always with my shares (and preferably everybody else's!), be sure that this recording is not made available at Queenzone or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format. Keep lossless files lossless, unless it's for your own use. :)

Enjoy!

Fantastic, thanks a lot for puttin' this up!
Frankfurt is just 100km away where I live, and the Festhalle is an awesome place for concerts! The accoustic is not quite perfect there, but the architecture of this venue is quite unique and worth seeing!

Is this the one with the guy in the audience who sings way out of tune (probably a chain smoker :P)? He sounds hilarious.

You sit there and you thump your bible and you say your prayers, talk about John 3:16... Austin 3:16 says: I've just whipped you ass!!

And that's the bottom line cause Stone Cold said so!
