As promised, here is the first year of the "project". This time I will share 2 concerts, the first one is from Golders Green Hippodrome in London, 13. September 1973 and Liverpool stadium 17. November 1973.
Queen Venue :
Golders Green Hippodrome, London, UK Date :
13. September 1973
This is a 3-source compilation of this great recording.
This is the oldest Queen live recording which made it to the bootleg market.
Two older recordings are rumoured - Ewell College 1971 and Marquee Club 1972,
but it seems that Ewell College doesn't exist (the recording is actually a
slowed-down version of the rock'n'roll medley coming from this concert), and
the Marquee 72 recording was sold to Queen Productions (but they claim now that
the don't have it), which means that this is the oldest Queen show we can get.
The performance is incredibble. The sound quality is absolutely excellent, the
only problem is that Freddie's vocal is mixed too low, it sounds like the band
is standing right before you, but Freddie sings from another room. But still
it's very enjoyable.
This show was bootleged many, many times, but never in complete form. The most
complete version comes from the "Digital Queen Archives" bootleg called "Queen
Will Be Crowned", which misses one line from the introduction, and has a couple
of small few seconds cuts. When this recording was shared on QueenZone
(http://www.queenzone.com), QZ user "stark"
remastered it and shared it again.
This remaster was used by me in this project as "source 1".
My "source 2" was a different rebroadcast of this show, I used only one line
from the intro from this source.
My "source 3" comes from the "Wardour" silver bootleg called "Pop Spectacular".
This recording has much, much better sound quality then all other recodings,
because it comes from a BBC Transcription disc. The bad thing is that it misses
a big part of Father To Son, some speeches, See What A Fool I've Been and all
songs after Liar.
I have used all 3 sources to create this compilation which is now for the very
first time COMPLETE and every track has BEST AVAILABLE SOUND QUALITY.
The editing was done in Cool Edit Pro. The final wav file was split to single
tracks, which were SBE fixed and encoded to FLAC with Trader's Little Helper.
TLH was also used for FLAC fingerprints. I have added an Audiochecker log file.
