The Glasgow Bohemian Rhapsody is the best version, not the Newcastle version.
The Glasgow version has Freddie hitting EVERY SINGLE NOTE!!

Not really, to be honest.

It's already been well-established that Freddie was at his best on that tour.  It'd be nice to have a few more tapes from the tour, which could lead to a better discussion about this transitional period for the band.

What about the Oakland 7/14/1980 concert? Freddie throws out numerous B4's and even gets the C5 in Play the Game!

Of course.. that too.

Ok, let's petition the world for more tapes from July 1980 as well.

Ah, if only it were that easy..

Basically between 1979-1982, Freddie was pretty much unstoppable.

I also regret not having more Crazy and Game july recordings. Freddie was indeed at his absolute best then.

We can only hope new tapes will get out.... We should be more visible as Queen-fans on general music sharing sites, like dimeadozen, tapecity, traders den, zomb torrents,...
