A new little Mega-Torrent right now: 1985 (The Works tour)

Queen didn't perform very much this year, so a better name for this torrent would be super-torrent or something like that.

The following concerts can't be shared:
1985-04-20 Melbourne (couldn't find it in my own collection, queenzone, queenhub or other sources).
1985-07-13 London (official released)

Okay some extra information:

1) 1985-01-11; Rio De Janeiro
This one is taken (by myself) from the snow producciones DVD set: Queen Rock in Rio Special
On disc two is the complete 1985-01-11 recording video.
On the Queenhub I couldn't find a good recording, so I decided to rip this one from the DVD with this lineage:
DVD > DVD Audio Extractor > WAV > songtitles added > FLAC (level 8) with Foobar2000

2) 1985-01-18; Rio De Janeiro
Must be the same as shared here on Queenzone recently
Anyway I have this one also from the hub. Sadley no Lineage known.

3) 1985-04-19; Melbourne (Pitrek Best Of The Best)
Is shared long time agon on Queenzone by whitemanAdmin.
I can't find the topic when he did share it on Queenzone.
Unfortunately again no lineage known.

4) 1985-04-26; Sydney (probably lossy source)
Taken from the infotext:
Hello Everybody,
It's been a while since I've shared here.
Ginger01 was kind enough to repost this concert video back in May.
I finally had a chance to see this concert and I really thought Queen were in top form and Freddie's vocals were on,
so I decided to rip the audio from the MPEG video, split the tracks and share this with you.
I'm not sure how accurate the history is on this , but I believe it goes like this:

VHS>DVD>MPEG movie>DVD files>WAV audio>FLAC Level 8(.fla).

Note from me: Audiochecker and Tau-analyzer have their doubts about the fact that this recording is lossless or not,
so I have mentioned it in the folder name.

5) 1985-05-08; Tokyo
taken from the infotext:
Ginger originally contacted me regarding to this show downloaded from the HUB cuz Whisperer (who was downloading this show from her) told her that it was a speed problem in this show, so Ginger sent me the show and I edited it using Goldwave 5.23 correcting that (higher) pitch problem. No SB errors.
Before describing the lineage/process of this show I must to point out that this is the real date, there was no May 7 th show. Only days 8 and 9.
Lineage: AUD > ?? > FLAC files > decompression using Goldwave > edit of the resulting WAV files (speed correcting about a semi-tone down) > re-encoding of the wav files to FLAC using FLAC Frontend (level 8)
Quality: Good
Total size: 557 MB
Thanks so much to Ginger for sharing this show in first instance with me.
Enjoy and do not convert this to any shitty lossy format unless is for personal use.
This recording is originally shared by Alex Solan.

6) 1985-05-08; Tokyo (Final Budokan Nights bootleg)
Taken from infotext:
Folks, this is a new Japanese silver boot release from "Uxbridge" called

Queen Final Budokan Nights

Disc 1 is a new incomplete recording of May 8th 1985. The recording ends with an incomplete "Love Of My Life". Apparently, the taper lost his second tape, a pity. The CD comes from the original tape. This share comes right from the silver encoded to flac with Flac Frontend level 8.

File size 350 MB

(Discs 2 and 3 are a new master recording from May 9th and will be shared later)

This recording is originally shared by YourValentine.

7) 1985-05-09; Tokyo (Final Budokan Nights Bootleg)
Taken from infotext:
Folks, here come discs 2 and 3 from the Uxbridge release "Final Budokan Nights" - i.e. May 9th 1985. It's a new source that did not circulate before. So, even if the quality may not be so much better it's worth having for completists.
This recording is originally shared by YourValentine.

8) 1985-05-09; Tokyo (Pitrek Best Of The Best)
Taken from Infotext:
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)

This recording is originally shared by Sir GH.

9) 1985-05-11; Tokyo
Taken from Infotext:
LINEAGE: Silver CDs > CDParanoia (ripping logs included) > FLAC level 8
Liberated bootleg "The Last Time In Japan" (Viking Records 2004, catalogue no. VIK37/38).  As the name suggests, this was one of Queen's final concerts in Japan before they withdrew from live work after 1986.  A lovely stereo soundboard recording and probably one of the best-sounding Queen boots out there.  Artwork included.

10) 1985-05-13; Nagoya
There is totally no information/lineage from the source of this concert. It's lossless, so it has to be added in this torrent.

11) 1985-05-15; Osaka (Pitrek Best Of The Best)
Taken from the infotext:
Masterpoint release
"The final concert in Japan"
Sorry....no lineage to know for sure.

Rapidshare bonus MP3-concert:
In the additional bonus you can find just only one concert:

12) 1985-04-28; Sydney
This concert has probably the good date; check freddie's speech with 26-04-1985 on the end of Tie your Mother Down and you hear the difference !!

There are circulating also copies from 28-04-1985 (on the hub) and these copies are from the other Sydney night (26-04-1985).

Okay here are the bonus links to the MP3-concert:
1985-04-28; Sydney
part1
part2

The rapidshare version of the torrent will be posted in the next replies in this topic.

Have a good download and keep things lossless which are posted lossless and lossy what is posted lossy here :)

If somebody has better quality versions (or lossless versions from the lossy one which is posted), please think about sharing it here at least I would like it !! ;)


greetings
