Like a few other shows on this tour, Aerosmith (touring for "Get Your Wings") also performed before Mott The Hoople tonight. Someone who attended the show in Boston a couple nights before recalls the evening: "Queen opened the show and blew them away, in their (Aerosmith's) own home town!".

This is the second-earliest known recording of an American Queen show, including a rare appearance of See What A Fool I've Been (seemingly in place of Great King Rat). This gig seems to be very well-received by the fans waiting for Mott The Hoople to take the stage shortly. All previous copies of this recording from The Expo decreased in quality for the encore, but here on the master transfer, the entire show is presented in glorious quality, also without the speed problems of the old copies. The Breakdown CDR bootleg called "Early Battle" is to be written off, as it's far inferior to the master transfer.

Brian's guitar goes out of tune during Son And Daughter, and he doesn't correct it for the rest of the show! He seems to lose time during his solo in Keep Yourself Alive, as he jumps into the chorus a couple beats early, forcing the others to catch up. Still, overall, the band are just simply on fire, as they had everything in the world to prove to every audience they played for. Roger's drumming is very energetic, especially during Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll.


This is a HUGE upgrade to the previous version, which was mp3 sourced. It comes from the master tape, so it can't get better. Great quality, great performance, what do you need more ? :)

This is a pre-LP copy in superb quality, which renders all LP versions to be obsolete, as well as all of the old silvers, because they are sourced from the many LPs (namely Sheetkeeckers, the very first Queen bootleg, which came out in early 1975). I filled in a few brief gaps with an LP source. This version was bootlegged as "Majestic Rock" by Wardour. It came as a bonus disc with their release of Kobe '75 called "Dressed To Kill".

This soundboard recording (multi-track, to be precise) clearly contains numerous vocal overdubs, most notably a bit over 3 minutes into Liar when you can clearly hear a line sung by Freddie (the "time after

Really good job Pittrek!

since you asking; yes, the Stark remaster of young nobles of rock & the Hammy could be great shares for all people here who only wants the best of each year.

Which version or mix of Hammersmith is eventually the best? (which means you'll upload)

I have created a mix of the best sources of Hammersmith, but I had to use one lossy source. Does anybody have the lossless video mix from Hammersmith Odeon 75 ?

Who told Pittrek was not a valuable Queenzoner was not here for long enough...
Many thanks Pittrek !!
To you new Queenzoners, these are truely the best shares you could find about Queen concerts. Of course there are some other ones for each year, but what Pittrek did here was selecting the best you could hear for each year. Perfect for those who begin with the Queen live collection.
Wonderful job indeed !!

I drink a toast to you !!!

Regards,

Olivier,

Wasn't the Portland gig the one which brian shared a bottle of whiskey with joe perry before and therefore was pretty drunk on stage so he couldn't hear the others ?

You're close! It was three days later in Harrisburg. Details are on my website (queenlive.ca) if you'd like.

Thanks for this, pittrek! As Olivier said, this is great for the new Queenzoner or fan who is trying to establish a good collection!

Thanks again for your hard work!

Thank you very much, Pittrek. I don't have any collection yet. Since I joined Queenzone, I just downloaded some songs, here and there, and burned a cd with stuff from various concerts in lossless quality. I deleted the rest because I don't have enough HD space to store so much data, and if I start burning cds there'll be no room for anything else in my room. lol
I couldn't add many songs to my cd, but the quality is great. I prefer this way of sharing, really, I'm not really fond of mp3, not even for private use (nothing against those who enjoy it, of course, it's just me).

Thank you again. I'm thinking about downloading the Portland concert.

Thanks Pittrek and SirGH for the helpful info.

Yara, you'll make the same experience like I did, believe me. I downloaded some shows here and there, didn't care about the file format and deleted most of the shows. I kept only the ones that sounded best, burnt on cd-roms. But then I got "hooked". I had to download every show once again in a lossless format. Now I'm looking for the best version of every Queen recording and I can't get enough. Every new show is like Christmas for me and I listen to all the shows repeatedly. In the meantime I'm able to recognise most of them by listening to them. It's addictive!

Thanks again, Pittrek, and thanks, Nummer2. I'm trying to make a very modest, though good collection. Just 1 concert from each tour.

By the way, I shall add, I'm at school and here the internet connection is quite good. I'm seeding "As it Began" (From the BBC Archives), so if somebody hasn't downloaded yet, it's a very good chance to do it. I'll keep it seeding while I rehearse, study and do my stuff, people don't care as long as I dedicate my whole day and life to the institution. Fair trade. lol

Time to go. I'm seeding the thing. It's quite large (1gb), but it's definately worthwhile. People told me it's not official released stuff, so I guess it's ok.
