So it's time for a hammer to fall and for another year of "Best Of The Best" series.

In the last years I have uploaded much more concerts then I originally planned. The original plan was to upload 2-3 concerts of each year, which have really excellent quality & performance, instead of it I started to upload every good sounding recording from my collection.

This time I've chosen to upload 3 great representatives of the beginning of the eighties -
17. February - Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, Japan
28. February - Buenos Aires
20. March - Sao Paolo

Again most of the files are on rapidshare, only the last parts are on mediafire.
I promise that I'll try to upload the other years to some free servers for all of you who don't have a rapishare account.
And as last time, every concert will be in it's own post

Review:

Great soundboard recording from the first night in Buneos Aires 1981. It was broadcasted live on the radio in Argentina. The soundquality is almost Excellent. The only thing is that there is some tape hiss and it has too much bass in my opinion, but nothing bad actually. The song Dragon Attack has a fade out, so Now I'm Here(Reprise) is missing. Same as the song Fat Bottomed Girls and God Save The Queen are also missing, so this is not the complete concert. Rare performance of the full song Rock It. A release from gypsy eye label. Very enjoyable concert.

And the last concert for today is again something special - a multi-source compilation of best sources done by myself a few months ago.

Big, big thanks to josedequeso, SirGH and ruth.olivier for providing me my source material !

Information : http://www.queenlive.ca/queen/81-03-20.htm


Band : Queen
Venue : Estádio do Morumbi, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Date : 20. March 1981
Recording type : multi-source compilation

Following is a "slightly chaotic" description of this compilation

The original audio (from the original TV broadcast) had a couple of gaps.
I have filled the gaps with the 1984 rebroadcast (if I remember correctly I've
used the full intro from it, and WATC / God Save The Queen). It still had some
small gaps between songs and there was a fade out/fade in effect between Tie
Your Mother Down and Another One Bites The Dust. Fortunately the video had
these small bits, so I have added them where they belong.
The compilation of these 3 sources was my "version 1". But them Olivier shared
on QueenZone "Morumbi Stadium 81" which has the best sound, but it's
incomplete. So I have taken the songs which ARE on this bootleg, and they
replaced the songs on my "version 1". This is the "version 2".

So from memory it should be something like this

WWRY fast, LMEY, PTG, STL, Save Me, NIH, Dragon Attack, NIH (reprise), FBG,
LOML, KYA, solos, Flash, The Hero, CLTCL, BoRhap, TYMD, AOBTD, SHA, WWRY, WATC
and GSTQ are from "Morumbi Stadium 81", the full intro from the 1984
rebroadcast and the rest from your 1981 broadcast.



Tracklist:
-========-
Disc 1:
1. Overture
2. We Will Rock You (fast)
3. Let Me Entertain You
4. Play The Game
5. Somebody To Love
6. I'm In Love With My Car
7. Get Down Make Love
8. Need Your Loving Tonight
9. Save Me
10. Now I'm Here
11. Vocal Improvisation
12. Dragon Attack
13. Now I'm Here (reprise)
14. Fat Bottomed Girls
15. Love Of My Life

Disc 2:
1. Keep Yourself Alive
2. Percussion Solo
3. Guitar Solo
4. Flash's Theme
5. The Hero
6. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
7. Bohemian Rhapsody
8. Tie Your Mother Down
9. Another One Bites The Dust
10. Sheer Heart Attack
11. We Will Rock You
12. We Are The Champions
13. God Save The Queen
14. Concert Ending

A HUGE thanks to josedequeso, SirGH and ruth.olivier from QueenZone for
providing me with the sources !

My favourite show from 1982 is Leeds 29/5. For me the best show of the year. Loads of energy and a crazy audience.

Another brilliant show is NY 28/7. The best US Hot Space show. 24/10 is nice aswell because it shows a different side of Queen, very laid back and with a few references to other songs(spread your wings, saturday night's...,..)

There are many truly incredible recordings from 1982.
