OK, I received an email from somebody who has a friend that went to some Queen concerts during the Game tour. He says he recorded one song "Rock It (Prime Jive)." He sent it to me via email. And it's AMAZING!!!! Freddie NAILS the intro notes (he hits two B4s and then hits a B5 IN FALSETTO!!!!!)!

He says his friend thinks that was from the Vancouver 1980 concert--but Bob's site says nothing about a recording!

?????

I REALLY want to share this, but I received it in an Mp3 format! :(

It doesn't really matter at all for the previously uncirculated stuff... Please share it.

Here:

It's in a VERY compressed mp3 format!

But it's the only one I got!

Sounds like the original recording is in pretty good quality, would be nice if you could manage to get hold of it in a lossless shape.

Wow, great!

Did he really only record that one song?

I remember reading a post by someone who said he saw the Vancouver '80 show and that FM was at his very very best.

Bearing in mind it was 1980, why would anyone got o the trouble of sneaking in LARGE tape recorder and then just record one song?
Sounds bonkers to me.

Ok, ask about the original tape and whether a proper transfer is a possibility. That'd be great!

My fingers are crossed that there's more. I'd kill for a new june/july 1980 show.

Ya I agree. No would go to the trouble to bring a recorder to just record one song. The rest of the concert or at least most of it has to be there


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

Sorry,  that was the first song of the "Hot Space"  tour,  or the second,  just after the "Flash Theme"  and they followed with the fast version of we will rock you.  Montreal,  1982 I think.

This song is the perfect example of how the mp3 format can destroy a wonderful recording :-( But of course, I'd LOVE to hear the full gig :-)

I know! I hate MP3 compression (especially if it's compressed THIS badly).

It can't be from that gig: They played that song 2 semitones lower then.

Plus, listen to his vibrato here. No way that's 1982 Freddie, it sounds closer to 1980!

Sigh.  I heart Freddie & Queen immeasurably.  Sometimes I forget a little, and then something like this brings it all home again.

Thanks for the recording Greg.

I've heard nearly every record of rock it and I haven't never heard this before. It has to be from vancouver. and if not, it could be from san diego
