Queen

Super Bowl

Sun City, Bophuthatswana

South Africa

October 19th, 1984.





Originally shared by Anthony aka City-in-the-Sun at Queenzone.com

Edited by Alex Solan.






Here it's the amazing soundboard show at Sun City shared a few weeks ago in MP3 format only and incomplete (almost first half of the show)

Pitch runned about at a semitone (approx.) slower so I corrected it using GoldWave... now I've downloaded Anthony's original MP3 (single file) and done the same process but now splitted on tracks and encoded to FLAC (to avoid gaps between tracks for those of you who might want to burn to Audio CD)



Lineage for this version: SBD > ? > City-in-the-Sun's original MP3 single file > decoded and edited using GoldWave -pitch correction and tracks splitted- > encode to FLAC level 8 using Trader's Little Helper (aligned on sector boundaries)



.md5 and .ffp files included.



Also including the preview MP3 file shared by Anthony at the Serious discussion forum (also pitch corrected and encoded back again to MP3 128 kbps, using GoldWave) and a very nice interview to Brian & Roger from 1986 talking about the Sun City gigs, Irish radio clip kindly shared by Marknow at the original thread:

Just so you all know, Anthony is having a bit of soundcard trouble which is the reason that the rest of this show hasnt yet been shared

http://www.queenzone.com/forums/1184980/queen-live-at-sun-city-queen-breaking-out.aspx

And thanks Alex for splitting the files, even though I havent dl'd this torrent (yet).

Indeed, I always though once a file was transferred to mp3 the quality was ruined forever. No decoding possible to the orginal quality.
