I'll try to give Pittrek a little help and attend, whenever possible, user's request to upload the files to mediafire.

It's all part of Pittrek's series. The files were either provided by him (Paris, 78) or by SirGH (in this case, Chicago78). I took the info given by Pittrek.

So, ALL - and I mean ALL - the thanks goes to Pittrek's magnificent project and SirGH's relentless dedication to the band.

I just uploaded them to mediafire.

From Pittrek's best of the best series:

Venue: Pavillon De Paris, Paris, France
Date: 24.April 1978
Lineage: AUD > ??? > CDR > wav > ClickRepair (removing clicks and pops) > wav
> flac > wav > Cool Edit Pro (speed correction) > TLH (flac level 8)

And then, just to keep the material "neat", I'll post the links for the Chicago gig, same source:

Orginally shared by SirGH.

Thank you very much, Pittrek!!!

Great wonderful stuff as usual.

Although a little pity that only one show from NOTW part was included. I've heard that Vienna 02.05.1978 from 2nd generation tape is really exellent and definitely one of the best show from this year. Hope that this gig will be uploaded whenever.

Thanks a million, Pittrek, for your job!

For 1979 I think Newcastle 4.12 can't miss...


Interesting idea, it's a great concert, but my copy is far from perfect. I've checked queenlive.ca and also Bob rated his version as B+, Mr. Scully rates it as VG-. Does a better version exist ?

My Vienna copy doesn't sound as good as the recordings I have uploaded, but of course if somebody has a better version, they can upload it :-)

Here are the mediafire links for the Montreal 78 gig as shared here in this thread by Pittrek. It does sound a lot better and the speed is finally corrected! Thanks for the wonderful job, Pittrek, as always, it's really nice to listen to the concert in such a good sound!

His words:

"This recording I am bringing to you is the best version of this concert I could
find. I have received it in a trade with a respected trader, labelled as
"unconfirmed master copy". It finally runs at the correct speed. I don't know
how other recordings sound but sound of this one is much better then anything
I have hears until now from this great concert."

All credits to Pittrek. I just upoloaded it to mediafire.

The venue: Montreal Forum, Montreal, Canada, December 1th, 1978.

Sorry, Yara, but some of the mediafire files seem to be corrupt or missing, at least some of the Paris 78 files. Does anybody else have the same problem?

------- EDIT -------

All my own fault, it works perfect now. Thanks, Yara!

Rotterdam & Paris are great concerts, but the sound is far from excellent.
Maybe I could upload them not as the part of the series but separately ?

After listening to the Montreal show, some remarks:

At first, I was surprised about the excellent sound. I haven't compared it to my "old" recording of this show, but this appears to be an upgrade. The only annoying thing is the taper himself, when clapping against his recording equipment (he must have been extremely embarrased when listening to his recording for the first time!).

It's obvious that the whole band is in perfect shape. Freddie concentrates on every detail, his piano intros and vocal ornaments sound very elaborate. A pity, that his voice cracks a few times.
Brians voice is rather loud in the mix, and in my opinion the vocal harmonies profit from that. They sound very balanced and they are done very well throughout the concert.

What struck me, is that BoRap sounds very similar to the Live Killers version, esp. Freddie's vocals.

Brian seems to be in a special mood that evening, he talks very much (in French, too).

Conclusion: Fantastic show and an adequate recording. One of the top ten Queen performances on my list without a doubt.

Unfortunately the better version is only B+... What a pity, in that gig Freddie voice was more that awesome... I never heard a concert with a better performance!

Thanks!
