Since this concert was also broadcasted on BBC radio, this concert was
recorded on soundboard. These multi-track master-tapes were later used to
create 2 different soundboard mixes.
The first soundboard mix, the "common mix" has great sound on the backing
vocals, but the drum sound is not very good. This was the only mix used for
all radio re-broadcasts, until the Swedish radio rebroadcast from 2005. This
broadcast used a completely new mix, the "swedish radio mix", which has
absolutely perfect drum sound, but on the other side, the backing vocals sound
very weird. Also this new mix has unfortunatelly some radio-added jingles
during some songs.
This compilation uses elements from both soundboard mixes with gaps filled
with the video mix.
Songs 1, 2, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 and some other small pieces come from
the video source shared on Queenzone. Its lineage should be something like :
TV broadcast > VHS tape (unknown generation) > FLAC
Songs 4-9 come from the common soundboard mix. The recording comes from a
pre-FM CD, intended for broadcast on April 12/13, 2002 on the Westwood One
radio network. It is missing Bring Back That Leroy Brown, and everything
after Gods Revisited. The quality is outstanding, and surely better than any
radio broadcast (of this particular mix, the common mix).
Songs 3, 10-15 and 23-25 come from a bootleg CD called "There Ain't No Sanity
Clause", which uses the swedish radio mix. All songs from it except the last 2
tracks have the lineage : Swedish FM radio 'P3 Live' 4-29-05 > CDR (0).
The last 2 songs (See What A Fool I've Been & God Save The Queen) have the
lineage : BBC FM rebroadcast > Cassette (0)
This compilation was created in summer 2007 by pittrek using Cool Edit Pro.
I have always used crossfades instead of cuts always when the sources change.
question is: pittrek
, you prefered, for the tracks availible, the Swedish FM over the Westwood One
I that here in QZ?
