Queen
Toronto, ON, Canada
Maple Leaf Gardens
December 3, 1978

This is (hopefully) the definitive version of the first night in Toronto 1978, a mix of two versions of the same audience tape (both speed corrected). The majority of the show comes from the better quality version, while I filled in most of the gaps with the inferior one. My edits are as follows, always with cross-fades:

-added tape to beginning of show
-added tape after Somebody To Love
-added tape after If You Can't Beat Them
-added tape to beginning of Killer Queen
-added tape to beginning of Get Down Make Love
-added tape after Get Down Make Love
-added tape after You're My Best Friend
-added tape after Now I'm Here
-added tape after Spread Your Wings
-added tape to end of '39
-added tape to beginning of Keep Yourself Alive
-added tape after KYA
-added tape after BoRhap
-added tape after TYMD
-added tape after SHA

The only remaining cuts are during Somebody To Love, Spread Your Wings, and Keep Yourself Alive (to a lesser extent). It seems the person recording the show used 90 minute tapes, which explains the cuts during SYW and KYA, but the STL cut is there perhaps because a security guard had come close by. You can hear the tape wheel turning in the left channel for the few minutes surrounding the first tape flip. I have also removed all of the little clicks from the recording. Thanks to Ginger for sending me a clean version of '39, as mine had those brutal digi-clicks!

Lineage of better version: AUD > Master > 1st Gen Cassette > ? > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC Frontend level 8 > WAV (GoldWave speed correction) > FLAC level 8

Lineage of inferior version: AUD > ? > Cassette > WAV > CDR (x) > FLAC Frontend level 8 > WAV (GoldWave speed correction) > FLAC level 8

This is a fantastic show, with the band in a very relaxed mood, as they were a couple days before in Montreal. Freddie is in a bit better voice, too. After a subtle applause following Let Me Entertain You, Freddie says, "You should've seen the audience in Montreal. They'll teach you a thing or two." Boos ensue! He continues, "Forget the security. This is your night!". Freddie delivers a great (and gutsy in places!) version of Dreamers Ball. The boys have a fantastic jam during Brighton Rock. Brian is horribly out of tune during his WWRY solo! Overall, it's an excellent show, and just as essential as the other great-sounding shows from the tour.

16. '39

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!

I know, I know! It'll be in the next file. But that may be a few days from now. Busy times! Will hopefully be back with more soon.
