I'm making a personal compilation of some of the best live performances, and the worse thing is, finding a great performance, but it being in terrible quality, meaning i can't use it. So i've put together an uncompleted list, of gigs which i've heard at least a couple of tracks of a decent enough quality. Some are bordering on the quality, but i put them in, to stop you wasting time. If anybody could add to this it'd be great!

1973 - Golders Green

1974 - Portland, Rainbow

1975 - Hammersmith

1976 - Osaka

1977 - Earls Court, Houston

1978 - Chicago, Copenhagen, Dallas, Montreal, Vancouver

1979 - Cologne, Hammersmith

1980 - Chicago, Wembley

1981 - Buenos Aires Sao paulo, Montreal

1982 - Elland Road, Milton keynes, Nagoya, New York, Osaka, Vienna

1984 - Birmingham, Milan,

1985 - Live Aid, Osaka, Sydney, Tokyo,

1986 - Barcelona, Berlin, Budapest, Mannheim, Stockholm, Wembley,

Portland '74 is, even though it is an audience-recording, VERY VERY GOOD sounding.

Yeah, I know. Urk '83 is much better than Milton Keynes the previous year and the recording is marvelous.

Too bad Queen would never release it because of Freddie's "Rivers of Blood" speech.

:D

I was at Urk 1983. I recorded it, as I sneaked backstage and connected my tape recorder to the soundboard. Contact me for a trade.

Yeah, I was there too. So were The Miracle, Fairy King and some others. Pretty good show, though I could've done without John Deacon doing the lead-vocals on Spread Your Legs and they should've left out Misfire altogether.

Oh, and USSR wasn't 1972. They played in the Bolshoi in 1976, between the end of the ANATO-tour and the start of the Training For The Races sub-tour. I've only ever seen fragments of the show, but apparently Freddie didn't make many friends by showing up dressed like Stalin.

Newcastle 79? Performance is awesome, but sound far from excellent.

What about

Mannheim 86,
Tokyo 85-09-05,
Sydney 85,
Copenhagen 78

?

I posted this list about a year ago in this thread:

http://queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=859163

In my opinion, all 100 concerts are at least VG, with at least 95% being VG+ or better.
