I have many bootlegs, probably about 20 to 30 ish and just happened to listen to Opera Omnia recently. For those of you that don't know, Opera Omnia is a bootleg of bootlegs (many in bad quality). Its what got me into bootlegged shows several years ago. But what i'm getting at is, who knows which songs on the compilation came from which shows? Its been bugging me for ages. I don't have the time or computer space to download the wonderfully available shows here, but of the shows ive got, i can only say for sure which shows about 4 or 5 tracks come from. If anyone knows, seriously, please say. Its been nagging me for ages.

I don't know about the names of the bootlegs, but at least there is a list which tells from which concerts those tracks are : http://www.queenonstage.com/mywebpage/operaomnia.htm

Interesting that you say that many of the tracks are in bad quality.  Considering they are probably at least 2nd or 3rd generation copies of quite old shows, I've always thought that most of the trakcs on this set are pretty good sounding.

Just about on topic here - I looked up the link that gives the breakdown of which gigs are represented, and it states that Sleeping On The Sidewalk was only ever performed once.  Out of interest, does anyone know if the lead vocal was by Brian (as per the original), or by Freddie (as per '39 live always was, even though Brian sang on the studio version)??

Cheers

Tread carefully.  The list looks mostly correct, but this one can't possibly be true as they didn't play White Man until 1977.

I think that some people here have compiled a better list, it was in the thread where the recording was shared

I didnt mean to say that they were BAD quality, and believe me, I have some bad quality boots, but most I have heard better quality versions of. And thanks for the link to the breakdown.
