Hey

I have asked this before (I KNOW), but is there a good live version of Great King Rat ?

I only got one verse, and then a keyboard solo (from The Works tour, I think).

It would be great if theres a better one!


...also, did Queen ever play My Fairy King live?
and if so... is there a possible to get this?

Thanks!

Queen at the Beeb has both My Fairy King and Great King Rat.

That's not really live, is it?

Great King Rat - The 1st May 1975 show in Tokyo. Make sure you get the Young Nobles Of Rock version. The "stark" remaster is even better.

My Fairy King - Never played live, though Freddie did a nice piano improvisation of this particular song during the last show of the Works tour, 15 May 1985 in Osaka.

Correct me if I'm wrong.
