Thanks Bob for the merge but...

I have checked the concert with audiochecker and most of the files is mpeg and some error. So is this one lossy ?

It is normal for you to upload something there is lossy.

Here's what TLH says:

H:\Dump\2-13.wav:  track looks like MPEG with probability 95%.
H:\Dump\2-14.wav:  source of track cannot be qualified.

Which is hardly conclusive. If you run the files through EAC you can see there's a jump at around the 16kHz mark but it's only from around -90dB to around -110dB. Now I stress that I've not had a chance to listen to these yet but that doesn't look like a big enough jump by itself to say that it's definitely MPEG compression - could just be hiss-reduction or some other EQ processing. Maybe someone with more time will give them a listen and offer a better opinion?

Thanks again for this one. Just a question, on this merge, We Will Rock You(Slow) at the beginning of the show fades in and is incomplete.I don't have the alternate source but is it the same for that one? Otherwise, I think something should be done to have the most complete recording.

Unfortunately the alternate source cuts in at We Will Rock You fast, so this is the best we're going to get.

And sorry that it appears lossy.  It's definitely not from mp3... maybe some hiss reduction or other work was done on it before it got to me.  But this is why I don't trust these programs.  All of disc 2 is from the exact same source, yet each track gets a different report.

Hopefully the tapers of these Stockholm concerts will eventually show up to settle these matters once and for all with master copies.

Thank you very much.  The sound is very clear.  The performance of '39 is very good and clear.

Excellent catch, Vivaqueen.  Thanks for that.

It is indeed a cut.  I checked out the "Big Disgrace" bootleg from Breakdown to see if there was a cut, and they used another show to fill in the gap.  So here's The Millionaire Waltz with the gap filled in with the alternate source from Stockholm:

Thank you very much Sir! One of the best gigs I ever heard from freddie. He was in fantastic shape that night.
But I have a question: is it the "Big disgrace" bootleg better or worse?

It's about the same..

But they're a CDR label... a pirate label, pretty much.  They don't actually have contact with tapers.  They just take circulating recordings, EQ them, burn them to CDR, and sell them.  So their stuff just doesn't have any value, musically or in terms of collectibility.

Sorry for this request, I know... but I would like to have this bootleg too as this is an incredible performance. Could you share it please? [img=/images/smiley/msn/embaressed_smile.gif][/img]
