Queen
New York, NY, USA
Madison Square Garden
December 1, 1977

This is a merge of two sources, almost completing the show.  Source 1 was recorded on a 90 minute tape (with cuts between most songs), while the inferior source 2 was done on two 60-min tapes.  I made this compilation a few years back, prior to getting the master copy of the second source... but it sounds maybe 1% better than what was used here.

This show is one of my personal favourites.  While the sound isn't superb, it perfectly captures the band still working hard with plenty to prove, and proving it throughout.

Source 1:
AUD > Master Cassette > 1st Gen Cassette > WAV > CDR (x)

Source 2 (taped by Rob Schoorl):
AUD > Master Cassette > 1st Gen Cassette > ? > CDR (x)

Disc 1:

01. We Will Rock You (slow)
02. We Will Rock You (fast)
03. Brighton Rock
04. Somebody To Love
05. It's Late
06. Death On Two Legs
07. Killer Queen
08. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
09. I'm In Love With My Car
10. Get Down Make Love
11. The Millionaire Waltz
12. You're My Best Friend
13. Spread Your Wings
14. Liar
15. Love Of My Life
16. '39
17. My Melancholy Blues

Disc 2:

01. White Man
02. Freddie solo
03. Brian solo
04. The Prophet's Song
05. Now I'm Here
06. Stone Cold Crazy
07. Bohemian Rhapsody
08. Keep Yourself Alive
09. Tie Your Mother Down
10. We Will Rock You
11. We Are The Champions
12. Sheer Heart Attack
13. Jailhouse Rock (cut)

I assume this is the concert with the fast ending Spread Your Wings (similar to BBC version).  It will be nice to have an upgrade of this.

Thanks


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

Yessir... this is the best available recording of Queen doing this version on stage.

So, what do we think - was this change Roger's idea, ultimately voted down by the other 3 members of the band?

I don't know who decided not to play the fast end after this tour but this end sounds really amazing... It's a shame they didn't do it more...

I think they already had so much songs in set list with "difficult" structure (various tempos combined into one song,solos, etc etc) so maybe it was wise decision to leave this song in simple way. What do you think?
 But personally i like this "live"version more

Yeah, you're probably right.  Maybe they thought they'd keep the latest single closer to the way people knew it from hearing it on the radio.

Maybe John put his foot down ...

Freddie:  But John darling, your song really kicks ass now.
John:  I get two lousy songs to play live and you want destroy one of them.
Roger:  OK, can we go violently "black" and change it to a funky ending?
Brian: Over my dead body.
John:  Listen guys, ever since we sacked John Reid, I have been handling the purse strings.  If you ever want to see another paycheck ...


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

Excellent !! That could be an excellent explanation ;o)
It juss misses the usual Freddie's "Fuck Off" at the end !
