As promised, here's the torrent for everyone who aren't able to download from DimeADozen.

Original comments:


Dear Queenies,

For those of you on Dime, I just uploaded this. Give me some time and I will try to upload it here also. I'm new to all this shit so bear with me. I hope it's worth the effort and people can enjoy this superb recording.

Cheers,

Keith.

QUEEN - FLASH ALIVE (Wembley Arena, 8th December, 1980) - Transfer From Japanese Double LP

This has always been my favourite Queen bootleg. A great performance and lots of power, particularly showcasing Brian May's fantastic guitar sound. I saw Queen a lot when I was younger and there's not many that can match their production. A good friend of mine had this LP when we were at school. Such is the volume, we once trashed my speakers whilst listening to the 'Overture' at full tilt. My friend later sold his copy which is something he has always regretted. I hung on to my taped copy for years before deciding to track down the original LP myself; not an easy feat as it is now extremely rare and expensive (I paid £200 for it a couple of years ago). Although it is a very good copy, I had it professionally cleaned before transferring it to my PC. I'm afraid that my technical skills are lacking in this area and I simply used a USB turntable and Audacity. However, I think it's turned out well and IMO, it's a lot better than the recent 'Standing On The Arena' CD bootleg release. This is my first donation and as such, I hope I'm doing everything correctly. I didn't attempt to remove all the vinyl clicks as; a. I didn't want to mess with the recording too much and b. I wanted to hear the odd snap crackle and pop for old times sake. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Check out BM's guitar towards the end of Fat Bottomed Girls. There's a brief pause before it kicks back in with the beat. What a beautiful sound!

This has always been my favourite Queen bootleg. A great performance and lots of power, particularly showcasing Brian May's fantastic guitar sound. I would urge anybody who isn't familiar with this bootleg to give it a few spins. After a while, it becomes a complete monster. I saw Queen a lot when I was younger and there's not many that can match their production. A good friend of mine had this LP when we were at school. Such is the volume, we once trashed my speakers whilst listening to the 'Overture' at full tilt. My friend later sold his copy which is something he has always regretted.

I wanted to hear the odd snap crackle and pop for old times sake. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Note the unusual order of the numbers at the end of the gig and check out BM's guitar towards the end of Fat Bottomed Girls (4:47). There's a brief pause before it kicks back in with the beat. What a beautiful sound! The vocals and guitar solo on Save Me are just heart-wrenching and listen to the crowd as BM steps to the front and delivers the solo in Play The Game. Vintage BM Bends! I also like the reference to the 'Royal Family' just prior to Bo Rap. Motherf*ckers!

Finally, I would like to tip my hat to the original taper; the origins of this recording ha

Thanks for sharing. I really love the Game 1980 tour. Freddie Mercury was on fire during this period.

Take care

Minor historical note: this is the show played the night that John Lennon was killed. The following evening, the band played "Imagine" as a tribute to him.

Great share, and a great quality recording. Thanks again!
