Previously shared on dime by Kev & Carl (thanks a lot) and recorded by Dan (thanks a million), here it's the 24 bit version of the gig, as it was originally shared and without any modifications.

The original info:

"Once in a while, karma smiles and something really special just sort of falls in your lap. This is one of those moments. Carl was up in Foxboro, Mass to see John Wetton and The School Of Rock All-Stars, and being the friendly guy that he is, he started talking with the guy sitting next to him. Turns out they had more than a little common musical ground, starting with King Crimson and it worked rapidly downhill from there. Shockingly, the topic of tapes came up and it just so happens this guy taped a bunch of shows in the 1970s that he essentially kept to himself. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happened next. This series of torrents represents the fruits of Carl's labour - multiple trips to Dan's house to pick up tapes, lovingly and carefully transfer the recordings and then prepare them for our collective listening pleasure. It is my honour to be able to seed these recordings and I hope that everyone who downloads them will get as much enjoyment out of them as we have. The master list of the shows Dan recorded is still under construction and we will circulate that as well as some photographic documentation of the project somewhere down the line. Please don't clog my inbox with requests for your favourite band(s) or a show you hope may exist after all these years.....just kick back, relax and let the surprises unfold.....

Without any further delay, I present for your enjoyment:

No EQ'ing.

A 16-bit/44.1-KHz flac16 version of this recording is also available.


Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

I'm averaging between 300-400 kbps.  In fact, I'm getting 300 of them from a single person.  Thanks, seeders!

Are there notable differences between this one and the 16 bit version?

Also, how do you burn these files with Nero? What steps should I take?

Sorry, you can't burn this as an CDDA (audio CD). This is only for "archiving purposes" and for listening on your computer. To be able to burn it as a CDDA you must use the 16bit/44.1 kHz version

Thank you very much for the torrent!

Wow. What a great atmosphaere, what a great concert. It seems like one of the best  late-early Queen recordings. The whole band is on fire and the sound of the recording is a bit better than the famous Tokyo 1975 recording.

I will never understand why Queen don`t release stuff like this for the big public.

They are musically absolute on the top. And in my opinion,  the Queen concerts from the mid 70ies stood the test of time  much more than the live material from Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple from the same time, which was released.

But you can make a VideoDVD with the 24 bit version.



You can use a simple background as a picture and the audio from this version converted to LPCM.

Definitely.  It just sounds cleaner.

Thanks a lot for this, a great setlist and I can't wait to hear it!

My first visit to the 'Announce' forum of this fine website has seen me acquire the wonderful 'Miracle Game' from Tokyo '81 and then I find this gem!!

At the risk of sounding ungrateful (which I am most certainly not) does anyone know of some album artwork for this one, or is anyone considering creating some? Again, thanks a bunch!

I cannot believe that FREDDIE and QUEEN were right here in my back yard.....at the Music Hall in Boston in 1976!!! I've seen lots of shows there, so I know what a fabulous place it is to see acts. I only wish it didn't take me half my life to discover the greatest band and the most awesome, unbelievable, dynamic genius of FREDDIE MERCURY... I guess it's better late than never! But, at least I've finally seen the light, and now am their most ardent fan!! They truly are an addiction, aren't they?  But, what a wonderful addiction it is!!
I cannot wait to hear these lost tapes from their shows here in Boston!! But how do I go about getting them? I'm not clear on how and when I can hear them. Can you please shed some light?
Thank you!!
QUEEN ROCKSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!
