Hi, dear Queenzoners! I'd love if you helped "build" my 4-cd Queen bootleg collection. I'll keep, whenever time allows, listening to other concerts, but I'll burn only 4 cds, which I want to have as part of my "eternal" collection, I don't need more than that.
Here's my plan: I thought of burning two concerts from the 70's - one from the early, the other from the late 70's - and the same goes for the 80's.
I have already burned the first cd: it's Portland, 1974, as shared here by Pittrek (thank you, thank you, thank you, and thanks to all those who made it available in such a good quality).
Now, late 70's. Kampuchea is out of the "the game" (lol) because it's my favorite Queen concert and I lost count of how many versions of it I have and don't even know how many there are and if mine are indeed the best avaiable (I have a lossy one, a silver one from an obscure label with an obscure title and a pretty bad sound quality and also incomplete, and I have the one released by Gypsy Eye). I have an avi video of the concert, also incomplete but very good quality, and I can't never decide whether I pay attention to Freddie's technique, which is, in my most humble opinion, in its all time high, or to his beauty figure on stage (so...well, girl thing lol).
What would you suggest me from the late 70's? I'm kind of inclined to Earl Court but it'd be...I don't know...too obvious, I have listented to it a lot already, you know, it's not...it's as if I were chosing another of the Hammersmith 79 kind, all perfect, great performance, great quality, oficially "tainted" (lol) and etc. So, it'd have to be another one: a good performance, good sound quality, by no means it needs to be a great or perfect performance, some people have already noticed that I in fact enjoy much more those that are considered the worst concerts. So...
Ball is in your...how do we say that? Ball is in your...side? Well, it's with you, that's what I wanted to say.
The good old 80's which I miss so much - I lived almost a whole year in the 80's! -...what do you recommend me downloading and burning? I have the CD and the DVD of Milton Keynes and Rock Montreal, both from Hot Space Tour, both quite good. I love the Konzert in Wien, 1982, which was my first re-seed (a quite successfull one, I should say, more than 300 downloads, I guess, and I wonder how many people are not calling me names because I made such a fuss about the concert and they don't think it's all that hot...lol), but I listened to it to exhaustion, I had enough of it, in fact I want to forget it and get rid of it because it's too fresh in my memory and I don't like that, it tampers with my listening to other stuff and the problem is that I have a kind of good memory for music and if I don't forget things I get crazy.
So...early 80's, what's the real deal, the thing, that one you think you'll never stop listening to for the rest of your lives?
And finally, well, I do have the CD and DVD of Wembley, 86', I hate that cd "live magic" and...what else, I like their performance in Rock in Rio, 85', but also listented to it a lot. So, from the Works or Magic tour, what do you recommend me?
The reason I'm doing this is obvious: it's not a secret that I'm, so to speak, a bit insecure. lol And, yes, I can hardly take any decision by myself, and I ask help for chosing pretty much anything, that's the way I am, it's boring, I try to avoid it because it's, you know, no one likes people like that, but I can't avoid being me all the time, so...help!
Thank you all, so much, you have been so gentle and kind towards myself. I have learned a lot since I joined Queenzone and, well, in fact, most of the little I know about Queen I learned here with very sweet and interesting people.
And so...that's it...and, well, goodbye, isn't it? I mean...I'm finished. lol
Take care you all. I'll soon go to sleep because I'm
