10) 1981-03-20; Sao Paolo (Pitrek Best Of The Best)
Band : Queen
Venue : Estádio do Morumbi, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Date : 20. March 1981
Recording type : multi-source compilation
Following is a "slightly chaotic" description of this compilation
The original audio (from the original TV broadcast) had a couple of gaps.
I have filled the gaps with the 1984 rebroadcast (if I remember correctly I've
used the full intro from it, and WATC / God Save The Queen). It still had some
small gaps between songs and there was a fade out/fade in effect between Tie
Your Mother Down and Another One Bites The Dust. Fortunately the video had
these small bits, so I have added them where they belong.
The compilation of these 3 sources was my "version 1". But them Olivier shared
on QueenZone "Morumbi Stadium 81" which has the best sound, but it's
incomplete. So I have taken the songs which ARE on this bootleg, and they
replaced the songs on my "version 1". This is the "version 2".
So from memory it should be something like this
WWRY fast, LMEY, PTG, STL, Save Me, NIH, Dragon Attack, NIH (reprise), FBG,
LOML, KYA, solos, Flash, The Hero, CLTCL, BoRhap, TYMD, AOBTD, SHA, WWRY, WATC
and GSTQ are from "Morumbi Stadium 81", the full intro from the 1984
rebroadcast and the rest from your 1981 broadcast.
A HUGE thanks to josedequeso, SirGH and ruth.olivier from QueenZone for
providing me with the sources ! 11) 1981-09-27; Caracas

This is a mix of two sources from the first night in Puebla. There are still a few parts missing between songs, but this is most likely the best quality and most complete version of this concert we'll ever hear. About 95% of the show comes from an almost excellent first generation tape, and I filled in the gaps with an inferior source. The better source was shared at Queenzone last year in mp3, but luckily I managed to track down the lossless version.
Source 1 lineage: AUD > Master > 1st generation tape > WAV > CDR (1) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)
Source 2 lineage: AUD > Master > cassette (x) > WAV > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)
Priceless moments: During the middle of NIH, Freddie reacts to the rowdy audience throwing shoes at the band: "Feels like bloody Chelsea Cobbler, I tell you!" (for those who don't know, Chelsea Cobbler is a men's shoe store in London). And at the end of the show, he says "Thank you for the shoes! Adios amigos, you motherfuckers! You bunch of tacos, goodbye!" However, it's worth noting that on the second night, these were his closing words: "Thank you for being a totally different audience tonight. We all thank you." The stories often circulate that Queen's concerts in Mexico were horrible for the band, but the bootlegs reveal that it was just the one concert in Puebla that gave them problems. Fans who attended the Monterrey show have also said their concert went smoothly. As for what happened in Mexico outside the concert venues, that's another story!
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.
Many thanks to Sir GH 13) 1981-10-18; Puebla

All these concerts are checked with Audiochecker to determine the source of these files (lossy or lossless).
If Audiochecker has some negativ advise, I have checked the concerts also with Tau-analyzer.
If okay with Tau, I see them as lossless source, if not I have added the "(probably lossy source)" words to the file-name.
Very dissapointing to have so less information for you all. Lot's of unknown sources, but better this than nothing :)
I don't have any lineage of every single concert because some are downloaded from the Queenhub.
In the early days of the Queenhub, sadly, it wasn't normal to create txt files with lineage info.
Thanks to the original taper/uploader of this concert where/who ever you are !
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 !! ;)
If you have some additional information (about source desciption, tapers info or uploader info, maybe even lineage info), please let me know !!
