I believe the first live Bohemian Rhapsody was Nov 14, 1975...but the there is no audience recording from that date, therefore the first performance we have is from the Nov 15th show: Here it is:

It remained this way until 78 or 79 where he would delay a phrase or two like the "born at all". By 1981, the song had many rhythm fluctuations but still remained a live classic. Some of his best performances were then

Ya the whole concert is available around B- quality. The torrent is available somewhere around here. The only song I remastered was Bo Rhap though.

Sometime in the future, you should Re-master the concert--like I'm going to do with Inglewood 1980!

Sure. That is a possibility. I can just improve it to B quality at most
