Here is a Torrent for the show Sir GH (Bob) just uploaded in Mediafire thanks again!

***Please do not convert to any lossy format for sharing. Convert for personal use only****
Queen
Toronto, ON, Canada
Maple Leaf Gardens
December 3, 1978
Quality: A- / B


This is (hopefully) the definitive version of the first night in Toronto 1978, a mix of two versions of the same audience tape (both pitch/speed corrected). The majority of the show comes from the better quality version, while Sir GH (Bob) filled in most of the gaps with the inferior one (Downloaded from Dime). Bob's 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. Bob also removed all of the little clicks from the recording. Thanks to Ginger for sending Bob a clean version of '39, as Bob's had those brutal digi-clicks!


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

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

Many thanks Sithmarauder for the torrent! For some inexplicable reason Mediafire is not working for me at the moment so this torrent was a great help. Not forgetting thanks also to Sir GH for the time and trouble for the initial upload :-)

Awesome... thanks for spreading it!

Perhaps you could specify that the inferior version filling the gaps is the one downloaded from Dime, just so people can be sure that the majority of the recording is an upgrade.

I used the notes from your original announce of this show. I just made certain edits referring to you and I also indicated that the inferior version came from Dime.
