Here another share !

This time the OXFORD november 20th 1973 show.

The special thing about this share is : this source comes from a bootleg acetate from 1975 !! I don;t know which sources were used for Supporting Mott the Hoople. But one comes from 1975.

Only a handfull ofbootleg acetates were made. Mostly from japan. Don't expect much of the soundquality of these acetates. Many of them are ruined or lost. Or played some much that it's detorioted too much too listnen to.

Keepyourself alive is not cut it's complete song! Hangman is indeed cut! 

Please help me here is a scan of the front of the acetate : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=V3MXN535 I love the picture so much but have never seen it before. It shows Queen playing in a beautifull theatre, it must be one the most beautifull theatres ever been made. It would love to have a colour or black & white photo or scan of this. The picture must be stunning!

Linaege : HEAVY WEIGHT ACETATE "QUEEN - BEFORE THE MOTT" (sleeve says november 1975) and the damn thing is really old! > to stand alone cd recorder Pioneer cdrq 01.

The setlist :
01 soundcheck
02 procession - father to son
03 son and daughter
04 ogre battle
05 hangman
06 keep yourself alive
07 liar
08 jailhouse rock
09 bama lama bama loo

Any chance of getting a scan of the acetate itself rather than the sleeve?
Only if it holds an interesting label. just a white or black one is not interesting.

The sleeve is actually brilliant! considering the rest of those bootleg vinyl releases.

I second that request.

This doesn't sound like it comes from vinyl to begin with, as there are no little ticks in the sound.  The imperfections of vinyl should be present during quieter moments, like at the beginning of Procession.  Look up any acetate or LP-sourced song on youtube of any artist, just in case anyone wants to know what vinyl is supposed to sound like.

In fact, this has identical sound quality and track lengths to a copy I've had on CDR for years, so this is likely not a new transfer.

Hi Bob,
I made the transfer back in 1997 to save my acetate when. But this one has the complete KYA. All the versions on your website mention KYA is cut ?

Why there are no clicks ? Don;t know I used a pioneer EXPANDER (a standalone rest noise reduction machine) between the amplifier and the recordplayer. I made little use of this expensive machine because I wasn't fond of the output.

It's still the same version.  It seems like a little bit of KYA is missing, as the track fades in.  It's the same version I have on all my other copies.

Why there are no clicks ? Don;t know I used a pioneer EXPANDER (a standalone rest noise reduction machine) between the amplifier and the recordplayer. I made little use of this expensive machine because I wasn't fond of the output.


So are the sound problems on Ogre Battle and Hangman a result of your gear, or is that how they sound on the acetate itself?

I think people just want a scan of the disc (or even just the label) because it's not every day that an acetate is discussed, never mind even made public.

Does anybody know if a version exists, which has a complete version of Hangman ? It's really pretty strange that no such version appeared online :-)

It's probably a cut on the master tape.  If this is the only audience source, then that's what it is.

This is NOT an acetate, it's just a bootleg that was pressed in 1975/76 i remeber seeing it around the record fairs of the time.you only have to look at the pictures to realise that,look at the outfits & the stage..the sleeve if i remeber right was just a photo copied sheet of coloured paper stuck to a card album cover.sorry to burst any bubbles

Queen died when Freddie did..R.I.P
