Hello everyone !

This is the Slane Castle show, from the Magic Tour, as offered on the brand new Uxbridge release called "Irish Magic Castle". It contains 2 CDs and a DVD. You will also find the artwork and the various logs in the torrent.

QUEEN
1986.07.26 Slane, Castle

"IRISH MAGIC CASTLE"
Directly from the silvers.

Lineage (audio)  : "IRISH MAGIC CASTLE" silvers CD > WAV (EAC) > Flac level 8 (Traders Little Helper)
Lineage (video) : "IRISH MAGIC CASTLE" silvers CD > direct copy on the Hard Drive > torrent (correct me if the lineage should be indicated differently)

Comments : This is a show that I'm sure Queen members would have loved to forget. Lots of different things made that one a sort of nightmare : a fight in the audience, a concert given mostly in the daylight, political tensions that made "God Save The Queen" out of the setlist, Brian hit by a bottle of beer and not really enthusiastic to play the encores, and Roger amazed to see people drinking so much beer. Still, it is part of Queen's history, and of course Irish fans really deserved to see Queen live, so !

Video attributes :
a .txt file is included in the torrent, in the main folder, called DVDattributes.txt, for you little experts out there ;o).

Here is my first (and most probably last) torrent here, I give it a try, hope this will work perfectly.
As my internet connection is not as good as I would like it to be, please accept my apologies if ever the upload speed was too slow for you. Be patient, thanks a lot. I'll give it my best !
Also, I have a limited disk drive space on my computer, I would have to keep my upload speed for further uploads here and there, so I probably won't be able to seed one for long, so let's hope you'll be able to back me up enough for other fellows who would like to download that. Thanks to seed as much and as long as you can, and to come back and add some help. I'll wait for some people to have it complete anyway, and will try to keep seeding as long as I can too.

The audio part will also be available on megaupload here :
CD1 (+ artwork, freq analysis, info.txt, FFps...)
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=SO95Y092
CD2 :
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ALNMVFSA

You'll find the DVD in the torrent, but I won't create megaupload link for the DVD, if someone wants to upload that, please feel free to do so, I would be happy if someone could deal with that. I don't have a connection good enough to upload so many things at a time ;o)

Enjoy, hope everything will work fine !

Regards,

Olivier,
Belgium.

Ps : I keep saying "silvers CD" in the lineage I give, but it is in fact "Pro-CDrs" to be completely correct. But how to distinct a Pro-Cdr from a CDr these days ? Anyway, www.queenonstage.com will allow you to see which bootlegs are silvers and which are Pro-CDrs. This is taken from the Pro-CDrs, not a copy from a copy from a copy from a copy...

You will need a bittorrent client to download the music. For additional information, view the Bittorrent FAQ.

Please leave your window open when you have finished downloading so that other Queen fans can download.

This file will be customized for you when you download

Thanks for this, Olivier, and welcome to the world of torrents!  :)  Yours is working perfectly fine, if a bit slow, but this will pick up.  I downloaded the pro-CDRs from megaupload and integrated them into my torrent download, so anyone who doesn't like megaupload can go directly to the torrent, and hopefully it will help it move a bit faster.

I'm looking forward to seeing this!

I don't have it.  And I highly doubt it's from the master.  These guys just started labeling the colour copies as master copies, and many sheep followed..

As for this bootleg, it's just as expected - a merge of sources.  But they didn't use mine.  They may have used it as a template, as they made the exact same edits I did.  They used the original non-channel-corrected copy of the first gen copy the main audience source, and did major hiss reduction on the higher gen copy and video source before patching the gaps.  Their edits between sources are smooth cross-fades, while mine were more abrupt.

Thanks for the upload. Interesting. I love the Irish stuff, obviously.

@ Luca

There was defiantly three pro cameras there that day, maybe a forth from RTE Ireland.

How much footage was recorded is a mystery, maybe somebody was doing a dry run for the upcoming Wembley shows.

Either way, there is no-way we will ever see any of the pro footage, if it still survives, it would not make any sense to release it with 1986 so well covered.

Thank you very much Olivier!!
I'm curious to see this one, I have the Snowprod. version and judging by the video I really don't think it's from the master, and also has a slightly "blocking" effect.

Thanks a lot for the clarification . So basically it's similar to your mix, but with cross-fades instead of the "hard cuts" ?

Luke



Yes, I have it. It sucks and it's definitely NOT from the master, and comes from a lossy source (and / or was encoded with low bitrate)

Could somebody please share the DVD ? Or at least some screenshots from the DVD just to compare if it's an upgrade ?

Thanks

The video quality looks pretty much the same as the snow version.
This looks like a cleaner version, but does not have any extra definition. The old VHS copy I have has better colour, but worse overall picture quality.

I'd give an arm and a leg to see the pro-shot footage, even though it's not release standard it would be very interesting.

New version on the left, snow version on the right.

Marknow, Thanks,
I think you are right!
Slane was a huge show, the biggest crowd of the tour except for Knebworth that was added later on..
Apart from this I don t know why sometimes bands they choose to made a DVD for a concert in a little venue instead to record a huge show.
Let s think for example to Queen plus PR"RETURN OF THE CHAMPIONS DVD"..It was shot in Sheffield..but why not pick up Hyde Park instead?..U2 did some dvd's from "little"shows instead to choose for example Mega-concert from the same tour. It s for acoustic reason?

This is the best version of the available independent video. Lemonysnick123 where are you?



This video has some pro-shoot clips of the crowd at Slane.Some of the crowd shots in the first 29 seconds are from Slane, and some more brief shots towards the end of the clip. The Band in the tunnel is from Budapest, I think.

Indeed, because it's a lossy encoding, like most of his DVDs.  Many people are fooled by the pretty menus, but others aren't.  It's a whole lot of style and no substance.  Just like any other business - add flashiness when the product itself is lacking.
