What is the "Holy Grail" of Queen live (not studio) recordings? Which audio or video would you most like to see? For me, it's footage from the 1977 Queen-Thin Lizzy tour. Apparently they did some jamming together and I'm hoping somehow, somewhere there is a video (or audio) recording of this.

The real holy grail is a recording where Freddie's voice did not break and where he actually sings the high notes.

A lot of people claim it excists, and know where to find it. But other people think it's just a myth

I think Sunbury is the Holy Grail.

Any others?

Here's a quote about Sunbury from a quick google search.

BRIAN May laughs when reminded of Queen's 1974 debut show in Australia - the band's first outside England which caused a near riot at the Sunbury Rock Festival, outside Melbourne. Queen, particularly Freddie, were booed and abused by a yobbo crowd apparently outraged that "a bunch of English poofs" should top the bill over Australian acts including Billy Thorpe.

"It was all just a series of misunderstandings," says May. "Queen were unknowns and we never expected top billing. We were supposed to go on as the sun was setting so we could use our lighting equipment but we had to wait a while (the schedule had failed to account for daylight saving). The Australian stage crew didn't like this and started fighting with our stage crew."

I'm disappointed this thread died so I'm bumping it.

Any other Holy grails?
