Since nobody else wanted to do this, even when literally hundreds of people have downloaded it (thanks Queenzoners), I decided to re-upload it myself.
This is the complete compilation done (and shared) by SirGH

Band : Queen
Venue : Sporthalle, Cologne (Koeln), Germany

View Larger Map
Date : 1. February 1979

Text from original readme file :


Queen
Cologne, Germany
Sporthalle
February 1, 1979



This is the complete Cologne 79 show, something which collectors have been after for ages.  It has always come out in bits and pieces, but always the same few songs were missing.  Here it is, complete, and probably in the best quality we'll ever get for it.

There are two audience sources.  One has popped up on various LP and CD bootlegs over the years, and there is an uncut tape from this source (we'll call this uncut one "source A").  The uncut tape is actually a bit worse quality than the best LP source.  So, I have taken about 2/3 of the show from that LP source, and It's Late, BoRhap, TYMD, SHA, WWRY, WATC, and GSTQ from the uncut tape.  A second audience source (of inferior quality, which we'll call "source B") was used to fill in source A's missing parts during Dreamers Ball and WATC.

Overall, the quality is close to excellent, but it fluctuates now and then, as indicated above.  The edits are as smooth as possible.  Also, I listened to the show carefully, and removed all of the vinyl ticks, and any other flaws in the sound.  And of course they all play at the same tape speed/pitch.

Here's the setlist.  All are from the best possible LP source unless otherwise indicated:

Disc 1:
We Will Rock You (fast)
Let Me Entertain You
Somebody To Love
If You Can't Beat Them
Death On Two Legs
Killer Queen
Bicycle Race
I'm In Love With My Car
Get Down, Make Love
You're My Best Friend
Now I'm Here
Don't Stop Me Now
Spread Your Wings
Dreamers Ball (part from source B)

Disc 2:
Love Of My Life
'39
It's Late
Brighton Rock
Keep Yourself Alive
Bohemian Rhapsody (source A)
Tie Your Mother Down (source A)
Sheer Heart Attack (source A)
We Will Rock You (source A)
Are The Champions (source A completed with source B)
God Save The Queen


Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered.  As always with my shares, if I see a complete Cologne 79 made available here or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format, I will never share another thing here again.

Enjoy!

Sir GH

Thanks, Pittrek, as always. I really tried to give a helping hand on uploading a part of a part of the series, but I found myself with the hands tied after a certain period because I don't keep the recordings to myself for too long; as long as I keep them, I either seed them or upload them. I like this gig a lot, I'd be glad to help sharing it, but I really don't have it with me anymore, believe me. :( 

I always think that I won't have enough time to listen to whatever I end up accumulating and that there won't be even enough space to keep it. It was already a feat to make room at home for the stuff my father left to me - many of which I'm not that fond of, but it has an emotional value, after all. 

I really appreciate all you do here. A lot. 

And you've always been nice, kind, sweet...and...well, I hope you're doing fine and I wished I could help you there. 

Well, sorry, if there's someone here I'm really fond of and feel like wanting to help is you.

THANKS A LOT. Thanks a whole lot for all you've been doing for the community and, above all, for your kindness. 

I wish you the very best of the best. :)))

P.S: It took a while for the computer to load the image!  WOW! I love these things...I feel so like sacrificing my lunch time...lol. I love all this stuff, from the most basic - flags on the torrent client! - to the most sophisticated, like this one. Wow..that was really cool. Thanks. :)))

Hi Yara,

the "slightly sarcastic" comment wasn't definitely aimed at you, the Queenzone ladies are always helping, especially Ginger01, but of course also you :) I didn't forget that you helped me with putting most of my shares to mediafire for people who can't use rapidshare. I'm just frustrated that after ...

1. SirGH shared it, the links died
2. Ginger01 started a torrent, it's dead
3. I did an re-upload to rapidshare (if I remember correctly), the links died

... hundreds of people own it, but the requests for a re-share are being ignored :( I used to download recordings from TheTraders'sDen and it's pretty common that torrents are alive after 3 years ! If we didn't have Ginger01 here who comes to save the torrents, all of Queenzone torrents would be dead within a few weeks.

But I don't want to start a flame war, I did it for the guy who requested it and of course I wanted to try insterting a google map  [img=/images/smiley/msn/tounge_smile.gif][/img] . I'm surprised that it works, it can turn into a big security problem

Pittrek, many many thanks for sharing this again!  I appreciate all your hard work.  :-)
Also, I'm seeding the Cologne show currently (at least my tracker says it's seeing), so hopefully it will be widely available to all.
Kind Regards,
Louis

Thank you Pittrek. I love the 1979 tour ever since hearing "Live Killers". Spread Your Wings live has to be my favorite. It sounds better to me live than the studio version.

btw the map above is showing the wrong venue, the Sporthalle was located on the other side of the river Rhine in Cologne Deutz (Messegelände)
