I hesitate to call this an 'Announce' as it might be construed that it was being shared here. Anyway, there is a new post on Yeeshkul for an incomplete version of this concert. Here is the link:

Thanks for the info.

Does this copy sound any better than Year Of The Opera? Perhaps someone could post a short sample? :)

If you look at the post on Yeeshkul, the uploader makes no pretences that this is the best version...

Thanks, Ginger!

It plays a half-semitone too fast, but after adjusting that it sounds very nice.

Here's the "Year Of The Opera" version:

There's a lot more treble on this one, but in the end, I think they're both from the same source tape with no difference in generation... just EQ. Your thoughts?

Okay, I've downloaded it and had a listen. What I did next was to listen to the recording of the night before (March 31st) and know what? On the "Mercury Poisoning" recording a handful of songs are from the previous night, not really surprising to me, because there are some inconsistencies. Lots of interruptions and the sound – though it's on the same rather bad quality level – has some differences from one song to the other.

At first listen, "Doing Alright", "Lazing On A ..." and "Seven Seas of Rhye" are identical on both recordings. They are in a much better quality on the 31st March recording. I compared "Keep Yourself Alive" and "See What A Fool I've Been", these are different. I didn't check the others, but it would be no surprise if one or the other song were identical.

What's especially interesting about all that is that the sound on "MP" is generally very bad, including the songs that originally come from the night before and are available in much better quality. Can we assume that there's a similarly good recording of the April 1st show and that the mix of both shows that landed on "MP" is just a very high generation?

Now, after reading Bob's info on his fantastic website, it all makes sense to me. "MP" seems to be just a compilation of different sources and even shows on a very degraded quality level.

What do you think?

Thanks for sharing the whole show, Dreamweaver. But note that the second KYA is tagged on from one of the bootlegs of 3-31-76. It's best to ignore that.

Found a copy of the reissue (1979?) LP in my local shop. £40. Should I get it?

Nah, you can definitely find it cheaper.

And the quality is much worse than the original release called "Invite You To A Night At The Budokan".
