After a small break here comes the best of the existing recordings from the year 1976.

This year was a problem for me. The reason is that not many good recordings exist.
I was seriously thinking about these shows :

Milwaukee 1. March 1976 - the sound is not that great, but still very enjoyable, but the performance is absolutely great, to be honest it's my personal favourite of this year. The problem is that when I was checking it before the upload I found out that my copy is mp3 sourced. Does anybody of you guys have a lossless copy and would want to share it or trade it ?

Osaka - both shows were recorded and both have a very good sound quality. That means that you will find the download links below :-)

Hyde Park - probably the most famous 1976 concert. Huge audience, but very bad sound. I hate the video mix, Freddie's vocals are too loud, much louder then anything else, there is also a terrible fluctuating sound.
The audience recording is much better, but the problem is that it was recorded far away from the stage ! Unfortunately none of these recordings are good enough for this "project", but maybe I'll upload them later, if there will be enough "public interest".

Now to the most important part : the download-ready concerts :-)

Queen
Kosei Nenkin Kaikan, Osaka
March 29th, 1976 (2pm show - Queen played two shows on this day)

Lineage: AUD > ? > LP > Cassette (1) > WAV > CDR (2) > WAV > FLAC frontend level 8

This is one of those essential 70s recording every Queen fan must have. It's first generation from the rare Zoom LP, so it's probably the best quality we'll hear this show in, unless one day there is a miraculous discovery of the audience tape used for the LP.


Disc 1:

1. Intro / Bohemian Rhapsody (opera/rock)
2. Ogre Battle
3. Sweet Lady
4. White Queen
5. Flick Of The Wrist
6. Medley: Bohemian Rhapsody / Killer Queen / The March Of The Black Queen / Bohemian Rhapsody (end)
7. Bring Back That Leroy Brown
8. Brighton Rock
9. Son And Daughter (end)

Disc 2:

1. The Prophet's Song
2. Stone Cold Crazy
3. Doing All Right
4. Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon
5. Keep Yourself Alive
6. Liar
7. In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited
8. Now I'm Here
9. Rock 'n' Roll Medley
10. God Save The Queen

And now the evening show - same date, same venue, same band :

Description from http://www.queenlive.ca/


This is the evening show, at 6pm. The recording is a few minutes longer than
the afternoon show, because the band didn't leave the stage after Now I'm Here,
and they skipped Big Spender, going straight into Jailhouse Rock.

Freddie's voice isn't in the greatest shape tonight; maybe it has something to
do with the fact that he already sang for an hour and a half earlier in the
day! He forgets a few words in the first verse of BoRhap, and he somehow
managed to mumble his way through it! Also, Brian has some tuning problems a
few minutes into his solo, but he cleverly fixes it up (although it must have
been difficult, with the delay on!). Brian does some dazzling guitar work in
Flick Of The Wrist (he actually does the 'big time, money money' part too),
and the ever-underrated John Deacon's bass work is brilliant in Flick and
Doing All Right.

There is an irritating noise in the left channel for the first few minutes of
the show, but part way through Ogre Battle, it cleans up, but then sounds a
bit distant in its mono sound for a little while. The person recording the
show fiddles back and forth between mono and stereo for a bit, and thankfully
he decides on stereo, as it sounds excellent from then onward.

I already have this one, but thank you Pittrek.

About Milwaukee 1976... Yes, sadly it's lossy... I downloaded from The Hub... Maybe someone has a lossless copy.

Many thanks pittrek!! Nice choice!!!
My vote for 1977 shows: Earl's Court June 6th (a classic one)and Copenhagen May 5th...but a loseless version of Houston would be aprecciated too.
For 1978: Montreal and Chicago...

I have a copy of a VHS for the Houston show, made by Cygnus, which is lossless and SBE free; if your version was lossy, let me know and I could try and upload the lossless one I have. Unless there are some other sources for this show... but it seems not (thanks www.queenlive.ca), only generations should differ.

Olivier,

Yep, I can remember a cut in the first verse. I would have to check anyway if there had more cuts in that song, but if someone has a uncut version, then it's this one that should be uploaded ! As I don't have the video here with me (I think it's the only unofficial concert video I had, I'm more into audio for the moment), I don't know if there was a cut on the video too.

regards,

Olivier,
France.

Ok, I checked my version of Houston and it seems to be lossless, although there's something strange in the spectrum.
Here's two pic:

And the FLAC of '39 (the song I managed to get the pics) (to be uploaded soon)
http://rapidshare.com/files/114106490/14_-__39.flac.html



Vancouver has a really nice sound, I really have to think about that one and I will probably upload it

I think there's mediafire links still active...hasn't this show been shared again here recently?

Thank you Pittrek for one more great share, nice stuff as usual.

As for 1978, let me say my opinion which is follows:

1. Montreal 01.12.1978. Best version of it, without problems with speed (like in Continental sound) and crackling sound (like in "Live Achievements"). I don't know exactly but maybe this could be Wardour's "Best Of Montreal", as I read on queenonstage lower generation recording was used on this release.

2. Vienna 02.05.1978.

Also we could say about Chicago 07.12.1978 as this is one of the best gig from this era but surprisingly Chicago 1978 was shared on Queenzone in mediafire today (thanks a lot to Yara)
http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=1105094

And yes there is one more really great show - Vancouver 14.12.1978, but not later than 05.05. this one was shared on Queenzone in rapidshare:
