Technical info

Young Nobles Of Rock is the very first Queen release on the prolific and enduring Tarantura label.  This title contains a new tape source for Queen’s May 1, 1975 show at the Budokan in Tokyo.  Several older sources exist with the first appearing on a rare Japanese vinyl titled Kimono My Place Live (Marc TC-75122) released in 1976 and copied on Stunning Live In Tokyo on Rodan Records.  This tape source is very good but incomplete, covering only forty-minutes of the two hour show and containing "Procession," "Now I’m Here," "Great King Rat," "Killer Queen," "Seven Seas Of Rhye," "Hangman (Shag Out)," "In The Lap Of The Gods…Revisited," "See What A Fool I’ve Been," and "God Save The Queen."  Three songs from this source, "Jailhouse Rock," "See What A Fool I’ve Been," and "God Save The Queen" was released on compact disc on Great King Hangman in 2000 along with a fragment from Queen’s April 19 show at the Budokan. 
A second complete audience recording was used for First Live Attack (Private Masters PM-007/008).  The sound quality of this is fair to good, very distant with the screams of the girls in the audience frequently drowning out the music.  Private Masters packaged this in a slimline double jewel case with a replica of the concert ticket. 

Wardour released Killing Me Softy (Wardour-004) in 2004 and contains a better sounding mono recording.  "Now I’m
Here" and "Ogre Battle" are incomplete and the source from First Live Attack was used to complete the songs.  The concert was also professionally videotaped and three songs, "Now I’m Here," "Killer Queen," and "In The Lap Of The Gods… Revisited" were broadcast on television.  The new tape source found on the Tarantura release is a virtually complete stereo audience recording produced by "Song Brothers."  He was very close to the stage and was able to
capture the dynamics of the performance in detail making this one of the very best audience recordings for the early Queen.

stark :  Firstly, this recording has been crushed by excessive compression (sometime since the introduction of digital limiters, so an uncompressed master SHOULD exist), and it's all but impossible to undo.  However, by correcting the equalisation I have minimised the effect and increased the peak-to-average ratio (dynamic range) by about 4dB.  As the original has a ratio of about 9dB (!!), this represents a significant difference.  Please note that if you are comparing this version with the original, it will sound quieter.

The bulk of the equalisation was done with Har-Bal. I then applied high- and low-pass filters with a Waves Renaissance 2-band eq and brought it back up to level (-0.2dB) with a Waves L3 limiter in Wavelab. I have re-tracked the songs, corrected the balance between left and right channels and applied new fades.

pittrek : Stark's remaster was fantastic, but there were a couple of things which I didn't like. First of all, stark doesn't use denoisers, which is usually a good idea, since you can damage the sound completely if you don't know what you're doing. However this recording had some small amount of hiss, which got pretty annoying during the silent parts, that's why I've done a very careful hiss reduction in Cool Edit Pro. There were 2 cuts in the original bootleg, so I have filled the gaps with the Wardour bootleg and an unbootleged 5th source. I have used a little cheat at the beginning and the end of the concert to make it sound better. Since they used taped intro and outro, I have created for both tracks a matrix between the audience recording and the album track.

I'd suggest you convert the FLAC files to WAV with a program called FLAC Frontend.  Mp3 only degrades the quality and takes away from all the work that was put into this.

From there, you can drag the files into your iTunes, but be sure to select a good quality setting in the preferences to maintain the quality.

I found a small difference in the audio included in this torrent compared to the audio  shared a month ago, about 1 MB of difference in the file "flick of the wrist.flac", could you explain me this difference?
thank you

Luca

Oh, I forgot. The original flac file (which is probably seeded in this torrent) could not be decoded with FLAC Frontend. So I decoded it to WAV and re-encoded back to FLAC, that's the only difference

Sorry for reviving such an old topic, but could someone please seed this? I got most of the songs from Mediafire, but one of the .rar's with songs was deleted, so the only other way to get them is this torrent, which isn't being seeded. So yeah, pleeeaaase seed? (A)
