I came across this mp3 purporting to be Freddie Mercury singing Imagine live. http://rapidshare.com/files/31488218/Imagine__live_john_lennon_tribute_.mp3

The quality isn't good. If anyone'd take a listen or confirm if it's freddie?

Yes it's Freddie, but it's not at a John Lennon tribute, but during a Queen concert...If you want to know which concert, wait for a collector's answer...

Thank god for QueenConcerts.com!

They played imagine at these shows:

09.12.1980 London, UK
14.12.1980 Frankfurt, Germany
18.12.1980 Munich, Germany

As far as I know these were the only times Imagine was played (excluding Queen+PR).

I can't even tell that is Freddie. I tried to listen carefully, but, I just couldn't hear Freddie singing.

The quality here is a bit better, and, I admit I can hear moments of Freddie. Took my technically challenged ass a good three minutes to figure out how to download this.

Sorry to inform you but Freddie did not improve the original (no one could)
