Queen
Oxford, UK
New Theatre

November 20, 1973

This is a merge of various copies of the audience tapes to nearly complete the show.  Thanks to Kurgan for transferring his old tapes, some of which is used here.

First of all, there are two different versions of the soundcheck.  The complete copy is about 21 minutes long, but there is also a 15-minute version with many of the silent sections edited out - the latter of which is better quality than the complete tape.  Instead of editing in a dozen spots of empty tape hiss, for completists I have decided to include both the uncut 21-minute version and a merge of two copies of the 15-minute version (one of which, from an old compilation bootleg called "The Ultimate Rarities Collection", is only 9 minutes long but is the best quality of the three).

As for the concert, three different copies of the audience tape are present.  All three are used to complete the section between Son And Daughter and Ogre Battle in the best possible quality, and one of the inferior copies completes the end of the show, as the best copy cuts out during Jailhouse Rock.

The master audience tape is presumably missing three bits of the show, as they are missing on all three copies - a few seconds at the beginning of Procession and Keep Yourself Alive, and a small chunk of Hangman.

Soundcheck:

* "Supporting Mott The Hoople" silver > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC level 8
** "The Ultimate Rarities Collection" (FBCD) silver > WAV (GoldWave pitch/speed correction) > FLAC level 8
*** AUD > Unknown (low) generation tape TDK D90 > Sony CFD-50L > Sound blaster Live Line in > WAV > FLAC Level 8

Concert:

# AUD > ? > CDR (x) > WAV (GoldWave pitch/speed correction) > FLAC level 8
## "Supporting Mott The Hoople" silver > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC level 8
### AUD > Master tape > tape (x) > TDK D-90 > FLAC level 8

I was hoping that FINALLY Hangman will be complete :-( Maybe you could write a note to Hangman that it's cut just like you did write it to Procession ?

Also what's with that annoying "metallic" high-frequency "echo" noise ? My head hurts terribly after listening to this gig. Can it be a result of a messed-up noise reduction ? My copy doesn't have that noise, but it comes from a higher generation tape :-(

Also is it just me or does Keep Yourself Alive suddenly play faster after "nearer to my grave" ? But the good thing is that after the "speed change" the annoying "echo" stops :-)

Also there is an unlabelled cut during the guitar part before "Mama I'm gonna be your slave" section in Liar. My version doesn't have this cut, but it runs slower. Would you be interested in my version of Liar ?

Well otherwise than that, it was a very nice piece of work, thanks for that share :-)
