Olivier, thanks for playing the role of completist superhero.  It's good to have all the old bootlegs to compare to the later ones.

So I just dug this old bootleg out and gave it a listen, and there's a pleasant surprise - this is the only copy of See What A Fool I've Been from this show without the distortion that's apparently on the BBC master.

This recording isn't quite as good as other bootlegs of the show, but it's still the best copy of this particular song, indicating that it was probably taped off FM radio - perhaps the original October 20, 1973 broadcast?

So we have to wonder - what is this "master" copy that apparently leaked out from the BBC? It's the copy that was first bootlegged in 2004 ("Queen Will Be Crowned" on the Digital Queen Archives label), but it certainly can't be from a master copy if there's a clean copy of SWAFIB on a bootleg from the 90s that probably goes back to a tape from the 70s.

And if QP couldn't locate it for the On Air release and had this backup (or one similar to it) to rely on, we can all but assume that the master was wiped.

From another thread:

Negative Creep wrote:

However, that story is certainly "interesting" - how does a Queen fan in Scotland find out about said tape being saved by an engineer and why would the BBC support it? I wasn't aware by that point in time that the BBC were still chucking their masters out?

Anyway, it sounds somewhat farfetched! More like a dodgy BBC employee rifled the archives and flogged a few tapes to collectors via auction or record collector or something. Stuff like that does happen - a cleaner once flogged loads of DATs of unedited live recordings on eBay and privately before getting found out and returning the unsold DATs (DATs were used through the 90's and early 00's and replaced reel as master tape format at the BBC).

^ the existence of a clean copy of SWAFIB lends credence to this theory.

So the question is - how did this copy survive if the master didn't, and why is half a song transferred hotter than the rest of the show to the point of being distorted?

Furthermore, the "master" copy clearly isn't a master copy if part of the DJ's opening speech has been edited out.

Wow! I'm surprised that there's a version of this show with clean SWAFIB.
Please anyone re-upload it as all links are dead now... How I overlooked this version before, I don't know...

I had a listen, I wonder why the first two tracks are such bad quality.

What does the Archivist have to say on the state of the master tapes?
