Queen
Slane, Ireland
Slane Castle
July 5, 1986

This is a merge of three versions to (almost) complete the show.  The bulk of this version comes from first generation cassettes that were purchased from the taper the day after the show.  Much credit goes to our currently awol Josedequeso for tracking them down.

* Version 1:
AUD > Master Cassettes > [(2) TDK90] 1st Gen Cassettes > WAV > CDR (1) > WAV (right channel removed in GoldWave) > FLAC level 8

** Version 2:
AUD > ? > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC level 8

*** video source:
AUD > ? > DVD-R (x) > WAV > FLAC level 8

Part of Hello Mary Lou and Tutti Frutti are missing from the first generation cassettes, as the tape was damaged beyond repair.  However, unlike the old unmarked gen copy of the same source (version 2), Now I'm Here is present.  This copy cuts out part way through Freddie's closing remarks at the end of the show.  The right channel has been replaced by doubling the left channel, as the right channel was very weak-sounding, despite it being a mono recording to begin with.

Both versions of the audience tape have the four cuts on disc 1, so it's safe to assume that those cuts are on the master as well.  The video source fills in three of these four gaps.  Thanks to Jumeteor for pointing out the need to further improve upon the previous merge of sources, and to Pittrek for supplying the video source.

Disc 1:

 1) One Vision */***
 2) Tie Your Mother Down *
 3) In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited *
 4) Seven Seas Of Rhye *
 5) fight in the audience *
 6) Tear It Up */***
 7) A Kind Of Magic ***/*
 8) Under Pressure *
 9) Another One Bites The Dust [cut] *
 10) Who Wants To Live Forever *
 11) I Want To Break Free *
 12) impromptu *
 13) Gimme Some Lovin' / Keep Yourself Alive (improv) *
 14) guitar solo *
 15) Now I'm Here *

Disc 2:

 1) Love Of My Life *
 2) Is This The World We Created? *
 3) (You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care *
 4) Hello Mary Lou */**
 5) Tutti Frutti **
 6) Bohemian Rhapsody *
 7) Hammer To Fall *
 8) Crazy Little Thing Called Love *
 9) Radio Ga Ga *
10) We Will Rock You *
11) Friends Will Be Friends *
12) We Are The Champions *
13) Freddie banter / DJ speech */**

There are only 4 zip files now because most of this version is mono sound, making for easier compression.

Another great share, Bob!

So if I understand correctly the "* thing" the better source is from an unknown generation and the "worse" from a 1st gen.

It's really weird, he just disappeared! He's in my MSN list but suddenly he never was online anymore, he didn't answer any email anymore, ....

I hope he's alright. Like you I wonder what has happened to him.

Thank you very much SirGH! I can't wait to listen this! It's interesting to hear Freddie's changing shape in 1986: fenomenal in most of July, then bad in the first half of July and then newly great in the second half of the month. This make every concert different and very enjoyable.

You're right. Freddie is brilliant throughout june. In Stockholm and Leiden(first night) he even goes for the high notes in A kind of magic(One vision in Stockholm is one of my all time favourite live vocals by Freddie). Paris and again Leiden are great too. In mannheim he's fantastic too even though there are a few spots where you can hear he's getting weaker. Berlin is decent but not my favourite even though he sings In the lap of the gods beautifully. Zurich is the worst of the bunch and I think the first show where he sounds truly awesome again is Cologne(haven't listened to manchester yet so maybe...). I gave that one a listen last weak and both the shape of his voice and what he does with it is wonderful. I've got a soft spot for the first Wembley night too. He's struggling at places but his heart is in it all the way. All the later ones are great again. I recently watched Budapest again and I was just stunned. He's full of energy and he sings with so much ease. That footage really shows what an amzing singer he had become.

Even though his range was limited at times, he was always in tune and he often he knew to adapt the songs to the shape of his voice. Sometimes he was lazy and just sang the songs in a way that was comfortable(still enjoyable to hear) without trying to make up for his physical weakness of the day, at other times he was pure passion. In that regard is the Osaka'85 show a very important one, also the 1979 Japanese shows are wonderful in that regard. There are other shows in the 1984-1985 period where he was going through the motions: not bad but not good either. I'm glad Live Aid came along because when listening to some shows of that period I sometimes feel they needed some 'external motivation'. During the Works tour the shows where they sound most motivated are the following ones: the first few ones because they hadn't been on the road for 2 years, when they played for a very enthusiastic bunch of people(Tokyo'85), when they played for an enormous crowd like Rio or tried to conquer a new territory like Italy. Some other shows have the band sounding 'professional' more than passionate. Then Live Aid came along, they thought: "Hey, we are the best!". It gave them the energy for a tour during which they wanted to prove they were the best. The first few Magic tour shows illustrate that, with energetic performances. I truly adore those shows, and the Magic tour in general:-)

Download this one again, folks... it's more complete now, and a bit better sound overall.
