Does anyone have the master recording version of the first show in Birmingham(August 31st 1984) from the 1984 Works tour to share here in lossless form?

I make this request as the version of this show which has appeared on Queenzone previously(and bokkepoot's 1984 Works Tour Mega Torrent) is not the best version. According to SirGH's site, this show  is "perhaps the best all around show" for the 1984 European tour.

About the show itself: This is one of first five Works shows. As such, Sheer Heart Attack was an encore number in the setlist, following I Want To Break Free. Sheer Heart Attack was only played on the first five nights of the tour: the premiere in Brussels(August 24th 1984), Dublin(Aug. 28th and Aug. 29th 1984), and the first two nights in Birmingham(Aug 31st. and Sept. 1st 1984). After the second night in Birmingham(Sept. 1st 1984), Queen decided to drop the heavy rocker from the News Of The World album for one reason or another, and replaced it with Jailhouse Rock on the third night in Birmingham(Sept. 2nd 1984).

There are two audience recording sources for this show, as per Sir GH's site entry for the show( The site also includes an amusing little advertisement for the three Birmingham concerts.
Source 1: AUD > Master Cassette > WAV > CDR (x)
Source 2: AUD > ? > CDR (x)
There is an MP3 sample on, and it's from the master tape.

Would it be possible for the master recording source to be posted here? Thank you in advance for reading my request.
