Can anyone tell me if there is any difference between the BBC session 1 recording of Keep Yourself Alive and the Bob Harris/Old Grey Whistle Test Version

To me they sound identical

If we're talking about the same thing, then the difference is that the Sound Of The Seventies (???) version is only audio and the OGWT version has a unique video

I am talking about a audio track labelled as the Old Grey Whistle Test version.

Yes, but you're also talking about something you downloaded off Limewire, so there's every chance that it's actually the studio version of Coming Soon....

The version that played on BBC2's OGWT in 1973 (accompanied by the promo film montage) is the album version from Queen.

Not the BBC version.
