Here I am with the 3rd year. This time it's 1975.

The first recording is stark's remaster of "Young Nobles Of Rock".

As taken from queenlive.ca


This performance is incredible. Queen play their guts out, and perform nearly every song with unique embellishments. They are clearly appreciative of the Japanese fans throughout the show. All this, as well as some rare choices for songs, make this a very special final night of the Sheer Heart Attack world tour. Many of the songs are long and full of energy, even moreso than usual. Brian plays a daringly long and creative guitar solo, and they turn in a long version of Liar. But there really is no point of highlighting individual things, as the entire concert is really a highlight of their career at this point.

One notable thing about these early Japanese shows is that Freddie is just learning how to communicate with larger audiences, but he's not having too much success, since most the audience members don't speak English! It really is amazing how bands like The Beatles, Deep Purple, Queen, and Cheap Trick were so successful in a country where most of their fans couldn't understand a word of their music - which goes to show how powerful music is and how it can transcend cultural barriers.

The show was filmed, and three songs (Now I'm Here, Killer Queen, and Gods Revisited) were later broadcast on TV, along with some press conference footage and a few shots of the boys having a picnic with some Japanese people. The concert footage was previously attributed to the April 19th show, because there is footage of Roger at the picnic saying how they enjoyed their first concert at the Budokan. But upon closer examination, it was confirmed that these three songs are definitely from the May 1st show. There is speculation as to whether or not the remaining footage of the show still exists.

It is worth noting that since this is the final performance of the Sheer Heart Attack tour, it is the last time In The Lap Of The Gods would be performed.

Definitely the BEST concert of this era, fantastic performance, incredibly long and now finally in great quality !

Please correct the lineage if I've got it wrong.


**As always, I have restored/remastered this FOR MY OWN USE. I hope the community sees it as enough of an upgrade to want it, but if you don't like it, please don't download it.

Firstly, this recording has been crushed by excessive compression (sometime since the introduction of digital limiters, so an uncompressed master SHOULD exist), and it's all but impossible to undo. However, by correcting the equalisation I have minimised the effect and increased the peak-to-average ratio (dynamic range) by about 4dB. As the original has a ratio of about 9dB (!!), this represents a significant difference. Please note that if you are comparing this version with the original, it will sound quieter.

The bulk of the equalisation was done with Har-Bal. I then applied high- and low-pass filters with a Waves Renaissance 2-band eq and brought it back up to level (-0.2dB) with a Waves L3 limiter in Wavelab. I have re-tracked the songs, corrected the balance between left and right channels and appli

-------------------------------------------------
Concert number 2 is - tatatadaaaaa - Hammersmith Odeon 1975 :-)
This concert has been shared many many times here, but NEVER in complete form. This is MY PERSONAL project, which includes ALL KNOWN PARTS IN BEST AVAILABLE QUALITY . For more information, please visit http://www.queenlive.ca/queen/75-12-24.htm

Band : Queen
Venue : Hammersmith Odeon Theatre, London, UK
Date : 24. December 1975
Title : Christmas Times Rock'n'Roll (fan-created multi-source compilation)

Tracklist :
1. Area Code 615 - Stone Fox Chase (taped intro)
2. Bob Harris (?) - concert introduction
3. Queen - Now I'm Here
4. Queen - Ogre Battle
5. Queen - White Queen (As It Began)
6. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (intro)
7. Queen - Killer Queen
8. Queen - The March Of The Black Queen (rock part)
9. Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody (reprise)
10. Queen - Bring Back That Leroy Brown
11. Queen - Brighton Rock
12. Queen - Son And Daughter
13. Queen - Keep Yourself Alive
14. Queen - Liar
15. Queen - In The Lap Of The Gods ...revisited
16. Audience - waiting for encore
17. Queen - Big Spender
18. Queen - Jailhouse Rock
19. Queen - Stupid Cupid
20. Queen - Be Bop A Lula
21. Queen - Jailhouse Rock (reprise)
22. Audience - waiting for second encore
23. Queen - Seven Seas Of Rhye
24. Queen - See What A Fool I've Been
25. Queen - God Save The Queen (taped outro)


As revealed by the original live video broadcast on the Old Grey Whistle Test,
most of the speeches between songs mentioning the fact that it was Christmas
were later edited out of every (known) rebroadcast of the show, audio and
video. Before Ogre Battle, Freddie says: "Right now Queen would like to drink
a special Christmas toast to everybody here, all the viewers. So cheers!"
Before Liar, he says, "And now a special Christmas edition of a little number
called Liar." Roger, before he jumps into Big Spender, says, "Alright, Merry
Christmas. Thanks for a fab year. We're gonna do some rock and roll." However,
Freddie saying "Thank you, Merry Christmas everybody" at the end of Gods
Revisited is fully audible on the video rebroadcasts, although it was muted on
the recordings for later radio broadcasts.

This video is the best document of Freddie's strip act during Big Spender. The
kimono, worth about $500 (which doesn't last long, of course), was given to
him by a Japanese fan earlier in the year.

This is a multi-source compilation made with the intenson to finally have a
complete audio version of this excellent concert. During the years this concert
was re-broadcasted by both TV and radio in many countries. Therefore many audio
sources have appeared, but none was complete. Many parts, like the spoken
concert introduction or Freddie's christmas speeches appear only on the
original TV broadcast, I will call this source the "video mix". This video mix
covers the concert from the opening by the Nashville country band Area Code 615
- a taped song called Stone Fox Chase, which was used as the Old Grey Whistle
Test theme song, to the end of Queen's rock'n'roll medley. After this medley
finished, the BBC crew packed their equipment, the TV broadcast ended, which
is the reason why the rest of the concert does not exist on video.
It is also one of the reasons why this source can't be 100% used for this
compilation, the second reason is the sound quality, which is much worse then
the soundboard recordings.
Since this concert was also broadcasted on BBC radio, this concert was
recorded on soundboard. These multi-track master-tapes were later used to
create 2 different soundboard mixes.
The first soundboard mix, the "common mix" has great sound on the backing
vocals, but the drum sound is not very good. This was the only mix used for
all radio re-broadcasts, until the Swedish radio rebroadcast from 2

Thank you very much pittrek.

I'm trying to download Hammersmith, but for some reason, mediafire isn't working for me... It opens, but when I click on the download link, it doesn't work.

I'll keep trying later, if it doesn't work, I'll ask for megaupload or torrent.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one who has problems to download stuff from mediafire. I know that some people allready HAVE downloaded it, maybe somebody from them could do a torrent

Sometimes mediafire is really slow, like now, seems to be overloaded. But after a couple of minutes waiting, it downloads with about 30 kB/s, better than nothing.

Hi Pittrek,

My turn to have problems downloading, but I think this time everybody will have the same problem, your megaupload link for the Stark remaster has been deleted :
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=F9SCB4OE
It says that you broke the rules, you ugly persona... Booh !
Do you think you can reupload this on mediafire or rapidshare ? Megaupload is usually a great service, but anyway some people from certain countries can't have access to these files.

Take your time, no need to hurry !

Thanks a lot,

Regards,

Olivier,
France.

WTF ? Those ugly ***** !
The problem was that Son And Daughter was more then 100 MB, that's why I couldn't upload it to rapidshare or mediafire. I can try to split it to 2 files and upload it somewhere else

Have you tried rapidshare.de ? It seems we can upload files up to 250 Mo, but I never tried it myself.

Gigastore maybe ?

Ps: for splitting files that are weighting more than 100 Mo, I saw people sometimes used hjsplit, do you guys have any technical information or opinion ?

Instead of the megaupload version here is a new upload of Son And Daughter from Tokyo - the original file was 106 MB, that's why I had to split it into smaller files. Sorry that I uploaded them to rapidshare, but I'm uploading from home and mediafire was fu*king slow :(

Here are the links :
http://rapidshare.com/files/110334272/13_-_Son_And_Daughter.part1.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/110343757/13_-_Son_And_Daughter.part2.rar
http://rapidshare.com/files/110345079/13_-_Son_And_Daughter.part3.rar

It's the last track on disc 1 of stark's remaster of "Young Nobles Of Rock". You need WinRar to unpack the 3 files.
