Hi, I'm a huge fan of Queen. I love all their studio work, but my favorite part about them are their live albums. Out of the 5 official live albums: Live Killers, Live Magic, Live at Wembley, Queen on Fire: Live at the Bowl, and Rock Montreal, which one is your favorite and why? My favorite is Rock Montreal because of the great song selection. Freddie Mercury's vocals were excellent and the way the whole concert was engineered was perfect. I hope Queen decides to release some more live albums, hopefully from their early years.

I have a battered old copy of Livekillers, but the bit with Roger's solo is almost mint condition.

I can't believe I spelt Freddie Mercury's name wrong! See, this is what happens when I post forums at 3:00 in the morning

Definitely Wembley. That was their best live performance other than Live Aid. Amazingness

1. Live Killers
2. Rock Montreal
3. Wembley
4. Live At The Bowl
5. Live Magic

But the Boston '76 audience recording is better than all of them put together.

My favorite is "Live At The Bowl", if for no other reason because of the brilliant way the songs from Hot Space were adapted to the stage. Only great musicians are up to this kind of challenge, and the guys shine throughout the whole concert: Freddie's vocals have a wonderful R&B edge that suits most songs just perfectly. Brian's guitar work is powerful and groovy, and Roger and John beautifully replace the synths with their crisp playing. 

A great album!
