I came across a version of Staying Power that sounds exactly like the album version, but without the hot and spacy horns, and Freddie saying 'Lets Make Contact' at the start.

Never heard of this before, can anyone shed anylight on this?

It's simply a demo of the song, recorded on 1-27-82 at a studio in Munich. The guitar overdubs may have been laid down on another day, but the basic track was apparently done by Freddie on Jan 27.

It sounds a lot better without all those stupid horns on it too!
