The list of ''ubers''  that got shared because of him is huge; Losts of soundboard material, EMI-recordings, and even 3 proshot dvds.

If someone with credability within the Queen community could try to take up a role like this, who knows what would come out of it.

I think Pittrek has demonstrated both credability and that (better still) he can deliver.
Hopefully, he has not dried up yet, but anything else I receieve I will pass to him.

Any other contributions?

Great initiative. This goes to show that it is indeed possible. Great idea! We all know Peter is to be trusted, so my vote goes to him as well. Unfortunately, I haven't got anything special to share at the moment. The Leiden gig, which I shared a long time ago, was my only gem :(

Hi John,   Thanks again for your wonderful shares before & also to Peter for uploading them.  I think your Idea is a great idea & also Peter is a great choice for holding the torch.   But I'm not quite sure how many people on here have those ultra rare tracks hoarded away?   & Greg B   won't  contribute,  although he might send a photo of his Ass with the words "Property of Queen Productions" tatooed across it. lol!!!!!


Joyful the sound

you know, there are supberb examples in the Springsteen bootleg world of how fans collaborating result in excellent products.

last year the boss did the whole "the river" album in MSG. now; some fans gathered the best recordings and collected all available video recordings from the night and made a bootleg dvd which is nothing short of spectacular. it seriously surpasses some officials releases I have (albeit where the production isn't top notch).
but nevertheless - the end result is truly outstanding.

if something similair can happen in the Queen world - that would be amazing

Another way to we could do it (to get hoarders to contribute, including me!) is to start a list of items people are willing to share when the list reaches a certain number (e.g. 10). They can ether do it publicly or anonymously (via Pittrek). I'll start off:

1. Uncirculated audio of QPR Anaheim 2006, recordeed by me, lossless
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Who wants to add to the list? As I said, noting should be released until the list is full, that will (hopefully) inspire others to contribute. I think this could work.
