Hi, I'm back !

The year 1985 wasn't very rich for recordings, so it was really hard this time to chose something REALLY good.
However I have chosen these 3 things :

19. April 1985 - Melbourne, Australia
9. May 1985 - Tokyo, Japan
15. May 1985 - Osaka, Japan

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

19. April 1985 Melbourne, Australia

This recording was shared previously on QueenZone by whitemanadmin.

Absolutely no idea about the lineage, sorry.

Concert 2/3

Band : Queen
Venue : Nippon Budokan, Tokyo, Japan
Date : 9. May 1985
Lineage : AUD > Master > WAV > CDR (1) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)

Taken from the readme file:


Queen
Tokyo, Japan
Nippon Budokan
May 9, 1985


This is an upgrade of the already fantastic recording from Queen's last ever show at the Budokan, from the good folks at the Wardour label.  This show is one of my personal favourites, as Freddie Mercury's voice is unbelievably powerful on this night.  This is surely the best show of the Works tour in my eyes (two days before the officially-released one, where Freddie's voice isn't quite so strong).  Wardour claims their copy is from the master, and I have no reason to doubt it.  The sound is impeccably clear, with no flaws in sight.

Lineage (assumingly): AUD > Master > WAV > CDR (1) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)


Disc 1:
Machines (tape)
Tear It Up
Tie Your Mother Down
Under Pressure
Somebody To Love
Killer Queen
Seven Seas Of Rhye
Keep Yourself Alive
Liar
Band improv
It's A Hard Life
Vocal improv
Dragon Attack
Now I'm Here
Is This The World We Created?
Love Of My Life

Disc 2:
Guitar solo / Brighton Rock (finale)
Another One Bites The Dust
Hammer To Fall
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Bohemian Rhapsody
Radio Ga Ga
I Want To Break Free
Jailhouse Rock
We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
God Save The Queen


Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered.  As always with my shares, be sure that this recording is not made available at Queenzone or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format.  Keep lossless files lossless.


Enjoy!

Sir GH

Concert 3/3

Band : Queen
Venue : Castle Hall, Osaka, Japan
Date : 15. May 1985
Lineage : AUD > ? > "The Last Concert In Japan" (Masterport) > WAV > FLAC

This is probably the best sounding source from this historically significant concert.

Review taken from http://www.queenlive.ca/queen/85-05-15.htm


This is the first appearance of an alternate source in superb quality which is, in fact, quite possibly the best-sounding audience recording ever made of any band. It rivals and perhaps even defeats the infamous "Listen To This Eddie" recording of Led Zeppelin from 1977. It appears lossy in a freqency analysis, but it was probably a DAT transfer of some kind. It sounds squeaky clean, like no other. The microphones must have been stereo and placed right in front of the speakers, as the audience is barely heard.

About 95 minutes of the show are from this new source. There is a cut in Radio Ga Ga for a tape flip, and the recording ends part way through I Want To Break Free. The folks at Masterport did a fine job of patching in the LP source wherever necessary to complete the show. The cut in God Save The Queen is also filled in with a third audience source.

The portions of Ga Ga and Break Free on the alternate source after the tape flip don't sound quite as good as the rest of the show, but this isn't a reflection of the original tape, as these portions of the songs sound pristine on the Wardour version listed below.

Nice job Pittrek! The 2 japanese gigs are really good!
What's your plans for '86? I'm thinking about Berlin, Mannheim, Wien as Knebworth has just been reuploaded.

Olivier - Tokyo is from the master tape, it's identical to the discs 1 & 2 from the silver you sent me
Daffy - I don't know, Mannheim will be there of course, but the rest is hard to say yet

I should point out that it was wrong for me to write an "assumed" lineage when I first uploaded the silvers here.  Despite what a bootleg company says and how good a recording sounds, the lineage of a silver begins from the silver.  Only when you track down the actual source tape can you be 100% certain of its lineage.

Hi, I don't collect solo stuff too much, so it would be "slightly" hard for me to get so much material. But is here somebody who would be able to continue after 1986 ? Which means The Cross, Brian May Band, demos, Roger Taylor band ....

Richard is experimenting right now, you have to manually copy the links (as text) and paste them in the next tab , it will work. It doesn't work only if you click the links directly

Thanks a million Pittrek! never heard the Osaka show before, great quality for an audience job indeed!



 



Review taken from http://www.queenlive.ca/queen/85-05-15.htm>

It rivals and perhaps even defeats the infamous "Listen To This Eddie" recording of Led Zeppelin from 1977.





Thanks for the info! Found "Listen to.." on Dime, what a concert!  No bad sound for '77...
