Thank you for this one!

I must say that I think I have a better version than this one. I ignore if it is the hub version but it has a better high end than the 1st gen (which I highly doubt if it is genuine as mine is clearly not a master recording). I didn't listen to my whole recording but it is slightly less complete as God Save The Queen fades out slightly before the end. Here are three tracks from my cdrs:

We Will Rock You (Fast)
http://www.mediafire.com/?lgxjjm4mnxf

Under Pressure
http://www.mediafire.com/?zxw0wymmiow

God Save The Queen
http://www.mediafire.com/?w1nlzjrnzig

Of course, it would need some volume adjustment but I really think the 1st gen sounds muffled compared to this one.
Do you think it sounds better than the 1st that was shared here? Is it the hub version? Do you want me to share it?

Thanks for posting the samples.  You're right, the EQ on yours is a bit more focused on the high end.  But there's more tape hiss, and it isn't any more clear.  Since it's an unconfirmed gen copy, my verdict is it's an inferior copy.  I've corrected the speed of both, so have a listen to the comparison... mine's first, followed by yours:

Listen to the clarity of the hi-hat at the beginning of Under Pressure on both..


Your thoughts.. ?

I presume you mean Bob's comparison link, not the files themselves.  The link does work but I find megaupload to be less than reliable.  Here is the link with mediafire - maybe you'll have more luck with this one : http://www.mediafire.com/file/nmy3wuzyeia/Hamburg 82 comparison.flac

OK, you're right, there's not so much difference. Hostly, I think it is just a question of taste. I'm just surprised that mine has some much high end and a 1st gen recording does not. Maybe the transfer was not optimal. For example, the vocals are in my opinion clearer on the unconfirmed version. Well, honestly, I think I prefer the unconfirmed version. Question of taste... :P

Bob, is this the version that Tim (Epic Dreams) shared here many moons ago? It appears to have the same lineage...
