Thanks, Pogor1, for sharing this one.

Attending the request of user John Deacon, I uploaded the concert shared by Pogor1 via torrent to mediafire. I just tried to correct the speed (first time I do it, so, any mistakes, sorry, guys!).

Unfortunately, the info is lacking. SirGH told us that: "Too bad the lineage got lost in transmission. This seems to be the same (or a similar) transfer of the master cassette to a first gen cassette, although it plays a half-semitone too fast."

The only thing I could do was trying to correct the speed.

As for the lineage, I unfortunately can't be of any help. Below, my comments on the sound quality, which I think was a bit overrated (always subjective, my personal opinion, of course) and on the concert as a whole.

[Personal opinion: This night is very inferior, in terms of performance, to the 13th May concert. The main reason being that Brian is awfully out of tune and does numerous blunders throughout the concert, and Freddie is not in good shape either and gives a rather tame performance and sings his share of wrong notes, more than usual. If my memory serves me right, I listened to it late at night, Brian's soloings in Bohemian sound really awful. Not a good performance overall, and the sound is Very Good at best, in my opinion.]

Let me be the first to say: Thank you very much.
I'll download this as well, just to check out the speedcorrection, which I probably wouldn't have recognized without knowing it:-)


Look out, take care, there's a lot of music out there...

Good job! But did you rip each disc to a long WAV to do the speed correction all at once, or did you do it on each track individually?

Thank you for correcting the speed... Can you explain which part is from which disc? because that's not clarified.

Thanks, PiotreQ. :)

As for SirGH's question: I didn't understand the first part of it, which means I'm still "crawling" (it's an idiom here! Babies crawl, don't they? lol) in this area, but I'm sure it's the second option: I tried doing the correction on the individual tracks, track by track by track, but eeeeeeeeverybody wants to put me down, they say, I'm going craaazy...hahaha.

It's always nice to go off topic. I'm going to get back to the doubts, but I feel so like going off-topic, it's a compulsion. lol

I was listening to Queen's gig at the Apollo, Glasgow, 1977, what a killer! Somebody to Love - that's why I'm singing it :) - is given such a great performance, especially because the vocal harmonies are working just great, as well as in other songs.

Roger's drumming is flawless and clever. He gives a lot of power to the songs and, at times, he does some clever sparse drumming to afford Freddie "some space", as it were, so that Freddie can sound as if he were singing alone and breaking the silence around - it always adds to the song's lyricism and delicacy, and it prevents Freddie from having to do the same acrobatics as in the recording (best example in this concert is "In the Lap of the God's Revisited").

His drumming in "Somebody To Love", "Tie Your Mother Down" and many other songs is both powerful and correct. Roger is singing very well, but really, really well, he does his share in the vocal harmonies just great, as in Somebody To Love. It's interesting because it sounds much closer to the original. The version, like, in Milton Keynes, 1982, is wonderful, but it's too much, so to say, "Freddie-oriented": there's barely anything worth listening than Freddie's blistering vocals. It's not the case here: the band as a whole does a wonderful job and "Somebody To Love" sounds much closer to the original recording. One could make the argument, perhaps, that the vocal harmonies were being gradually neglected or getting worse over time and the emphasis of whole songs ended up laying on Freddie's vocals only.

In MK 1982, yes, one can almost "see" Aretha Franklin's influence on Freddie's vocals during Somebody to Love and, of course, "Save Me" (Aretha sang a famous song with the same title and the same "ohhhhhhh-ohhhhhhs" lol). Not so much in Glasgow, 1977: it still sounds like the Freddie from a Night At The Opera: delicate singing, powerful, yes, but mainly delicate and precise, without going too loud - the vaudevillian kind of singing he emulated so well and which makes him sound so close to, and at the same time so distant! from, the good old Andrew Sisters, for instance - some operatic spin here and there, but most importantly, a whole lot of humor, delicacy and accuracy in reaching the notes without sounding so loud and dramatic, so to speak, as he sounds later. Different aspects of the same band or singer, I'm not saying this or that is better or worse, I like the whole stuff. :-)

The Appolo gig, just to go totally off topic (lol), it's also remarkable because it's one of the last times I listened to the band performing some songs with humor, especially "Tie Your Mother Down", which is a funny song and should be delivered in a more humorous way, especially live - Freddie does it. He adds some tricks here and there to make the song sound "less serious", so to speal, and it works.

So, end of the off-topic.

Thank you all for the kind words of support (first time I tried doing the speed correction!) and I hope I addressed SirGH's doubt - I didn't really understand the first part of the question, but I know for a fact the what I did falls beneath the second part because I did it on each track!

Thank you, SirGH, for the care and attention. Thanks PiotreQ for the help, and all the others for the helpful comments.

Take care!

The reason I asked is because there is a chance there could be a little click between each track (sector boundary error.. SBE) if you edit each track individually.
