A new audience recording was released yesterday. It was Boston 2/9/76. What do we all think of it? Performance, quality etc..

Excellent recording, excellent show.

Freddie's voice is a bit weak, but they always put on a great show in the 70s overall, focused on the music.

The band almost fall apart coming out of the guitar solo in Stone Cold Crazy.  Other than that it's pretty flawless musically.

I agree. Pretty good quality. Definetly one of the best in the 70's. But ya, his voice is a bit weak. Thats probably because it is in the middle of the tour after a few consecutive dates. And ya, the almost trainwreck is pretty funny

I love the show: The quality is very good for a bootleg (an excellent rating), and musically it's top notch. Freddie's voice is strained quite a bit--especially towards the middle/end parts of the gig, but it's still great.
I LOL'D at the "trainwreck" that Sir GH wrote on his site. lol
