I've just stumbled on this piece of information
This concert was recorded by BBC, and part of it (8 tracks) broadcasted 'In concert' program.
Bootleg: First Queen bootleg out in February 1975. Title, "Sheetkeckeers" 1LP (TAKRL 1957). Later released on many LP & CD's.
Taken from queenonstage.com

I have never heard that this show was also broadcasted on BBC. Is it true ? And does anybody have some more information about this ?

Hi no it was planned to be broadcasted , the show was cut down by one of the sheffield guys. Don;t know the reason why t was never broadcasted , I believe they weren;t satisfied woth the sound quality or something like that, but I don;t know if I remember that correctly.

Though it is a great show, it;s a shame they cut GKR out....

Oh great... another piece of folklore.

We don't even know what the UK Queen II setlist was, because there is no known complete recording of a show.

And we should all know by now that Greg's first book (and his second book, in many places) is not a reliable source for setlists.

Of course. We know that because there's a recording. But that doesn't necessarily mean it was played on an earlier tour.

Didn't Greg write in his first book that Queen played Keep Yourself Alive in Golders Green Hippodrome 73 ?
