This stunning audio recording made at Maida Vale Studios on October 28, 1977 (and broadcast on BBC Radio 1 two weeks later),
has become one of the most bootlegged Queen recordings ever. The idea to capture the band live in a state-of-the-art broadcast recording studio
was indeed a smart one, since Queen’s success came from a combination of high-end, tech-driven guitar wizardry and passionate musical performances.
Recorded right as their popular News of the World album was being released, Queen during this time sounded as if Led Zeppelin had run smack dab into
Ziggy-era David Bowie while he was shopping for mascara in the mall. The Zep influence is most apparent on the opening track, “It's Late,”
whose dreamy center is a direct rip-off of the Zeppelin interlude in the center of “Whole Lotta Love.” Of course, Freddie Mercury’s over-the-top showmanship
was certainly influenced by the thin white duke, but Queen was certainly an amazing band in its own right.
Queen wrote strong, melodramatic rock ’n’ roll songs; just take a listen to “Spread Your Wings.”
The familiar anathematic version of “We Will Rock You” is followed by a fast, full band rock ’n’ roll version.
The band closes with “I Go Crazy,” their hard rock original, not the classic James Brown R&B hit from the early ‘60s.
It’s a story about a guy who is frustrated when his groupie girlfriend runs off with a myriad of rock stars.
You’ve got to hand it to any band that rocks the chorus, “I ain’t gonna see the Rolling Stones no more; I ain’t gonna see Queen, no more.”
Tragically, most people know that Queen’s amazing career essentially came to an end when Freddie Mercury became the first public rock star to die of AIDS.
The band did re-group with guitarist Brian May and ex-Free/Bad Company vocalist Paul Rodgers as more of a tribute act,
and they have had a successful run as a touring group since 2004.
Strange enhough it also includes "I Go Crazy" which is as far as I know the B-side of Radio Ga Ga recorded during The Works sessions. Therefore because it's officialy released I deleted this track.
Fortunately this is without those irriting audience noises as do have much of the bootlegs versions I've heard. The sound quality is the best I've heard so far...but of course that's my opinion
Enjoy! And feel free to make a torrent or anything you like to share this file!!
