This is a 3-source merge of this great recording. I have done another merge a couple of years ago, this version is a nice upgrade. I have done some hiss reduction and speed correction, and everywhere where possible crossfades were used instead of hard cuts.

This is the oldest Queen live recording which made it to the bootleg market. Two older recordings are rumoured - Ewell College 1971 and Marquee Club 1972, but it seems that Ewell College doesn't exist (the recording is actually a slowed-down version of the rock'n'roll medley coming from this concert), and the Marquee 72 recording was sold to Queen Productions (but they claim now that the don't have it), which means that this is the oldest Queen show we can get.

The performance is incredibble. The sound quality is absolutely excellent, the only problem is that Freddie's vocal is mixed too low, it sounds like the band is standing right before you, but Freddie sings from another room. But still it's very enjoyable.

This show was bootleged many, many times, but never in complete form. The most complete version comes from the "Digital Queen Archives" bootleg called "Queen Will Be Crowned", which misses one line from the introduction, and has a couple of small few seconds cuts. When this recording was shared on QueenZone (http://www.queenzone.com), QZ user "stark" remastered it and shared it again. This remaster was used by me in this project as "source 2". I have found out that this recording runs too fast, so I had to slow it down approx 2%.

My "source 1" comes from the "Wardour" silver bootleg called "Pop Spectacular". This recording has much, much better sound quality then all other recodings, because it comes from a BBC Transcription disc. The bad thing is that it misses a big part of Son And Daughter, some speeches, See What A Fool I've Been and all songs after Liar. It had some minor hiss in the background apparent mainly during the first tracks, so I carefully removed it with Cool Edit Pro.

My "source 3" was a different rebroadcast of this show, I used only one line from the intro from this source.

I have used all 3 sources to create this compilation which is now for the very first time COMPLETE and every track has BEST AVAILABLE SOUND QUALITY. The editing was done in Cool Edit Pro. The final wav file was split to single tracks, which were SBE fixed and encoded to FLAC with Trader's Little Helper. TLH was also used for FLAC fingerprints.
Enjoy

Lineup :
Freddie Mercury - vocals
Roger Meddows-Taylor - percussion
Deacon John - bass
Brian May - guitar



Please note, I can't seed the whole day, but I will definitely keep seeding for everybody who wants this
