Earlier this year (2007) a book called "Korkealta ja kovaa - rokkikuvia 70-luvulta" was published in Finland. The authors are journalist Tommi Liuhala and photographer Reijo Porkka.

The book features photographs taken by Reijo Porkka at Queen's one and only concert in Finland 25.11.1974 at the Kulttuuritalo in Helsinki. They are nothing spectacular, just standard concert shots of the band.

Since the book is new and the photographs are subject to copyright, I'm not going to directly upload any scans to queenzone myself.

The book costs around 30€, which is too much for just a few never-before-seen Queen photos and I don't know if there's any way people outside of Finland can order it(and for the Finns reading, I recall it's been sighted occasionally at the bargain bins and found in most libraries anyway)

Thanks for the info. So, it's just a few pics? No old reviews, recollections by people who attended the show, or anything like that?

No, just a short bit (but nonetheless very interesting stuff) about Tommi Liuhala's personal experience of meeting the band at the hotel in Helsinki (and seeing the concert) while he worked as a journalist for a tabloid magazine. In the bit he tells that he met Brian and Freddie at the hotel bar and talked with them for 1,5 hours, during which they described their new upcoming album (ANATO) and discussed the possibilities of studio technology etc.

So no reviews, just the other authors personal experiences backed by the photographers photo's. There are about 30 black and white photographs spanning across six pages and the images are mainly small to medium in size (due to quality issues I'm sure)

Korkealta ja kovaa on upea valokuvateos suomalaisista ja Suomessa konsertoineista rokkibandeista 70-luvulta. Reijo Porkan kuvat ovat olleet esilla Suomen valokuvataiteen museon Svengijengi-nayttelyssa 1971 Suomessa ja ulkomailla seka pari vuotta sitten Kaapelin suomalaista 70-luvun dokumenttivalokuvausta esittelevassa nayttelyssa. Naiden kuvien ansiosta Reijo Porkka sai arvostetun FRPS-arvon, jonka myontaa The Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain. Hän saanut myös valokuvauksen valtionpalkinnon 1974.

Mukana on dokumenttikuvia mm. seuraavista bandeista: Jethro Tull, Frank Zappa, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, B. B. King, Mot The Hoople, Status Quo, Elkie Brooks, Niemen & Silesian Blues Band, Ten Years After, Steppenwolf, MC5 seka Hurriganes, Wigwam, Tasavallan Presidentti/Tolonen, Kalevala ja Hullujussi.

Eu amo faixas como a rainha, o Jethro Tull, o genesis, e o material como aquele. Minhas calças são vermelhas.
