Hello Queen fans,
It's Ale here, QueenItalia.it and QueenCuttings.com webmaster.
I'm writing you to officially confirm that David Richards was our guest in celebrating our (The Italian Queen Community www.QueenItalia.it ) 5th anniversary on line, in Rome last 27th Nov.

He was very kind and always smiling, he was really willing with all the fans that were there at STAZIONE BIRRA, one of the most famous disco-pub in Ciampino (Rome).

During his speech, he told us that he found a tape with some sessions from 1989, he completely forgot. He played us something and it was really interesting. Something that nobody ever listen to before.

The fact is: we are a community of fans, and one of our mission is to SHARE. Share passion, share stories, share all.

So, to avoid that CRAP files or bad quality recordings of that night would make any speculation or used as "something to trade secretely" or things like this, I DECIDED on my own responsability to ask all the people I know were recording last night, not to share but send me their stuff in order to CHECK it, repairs and clear if necessary and then GIVE THE QUEEN COMMUNITY ONLY THE BEST VERSION POSSIBILE:

My philosophy is: It's impossible to ask all the 300 people that was there NOT to share nothing. So, as in every case that demos would be on line, so It's better if we, the community that organized the event, share only the best version in a nice way.

So, for your pleasure, this is our YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/queenitaliaofficial?gl=IT&hl=it 
You will find:
AFFAIRS (an improvisation - Freddie's voice too - from 1989)
GRAND DAME (a never finished song, instrumental, without Freddie's voice - from 1989)
an early version of BARCELONA (that Richards told us Freddie recorded with the only purpose to take the tape to a translator to have the verses sung in spanish)

It was played a different version of DON'T TRY SO HARD too, as soon as I receive stuff from our members, I will upload the best version, as I already did with the other.

Later, I will share links to have .wav files directly.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The last thing I can say is that I asked David if he was contacted by Queen Production to be "ready" to produce something next year, to celebrate Queen's 40 years. He simply replied "sorry, I cannot reply to this question" with a smile on his face.
I think it could be considered a positive warning :-)

Rock on

Please, is the "Barcelona" demo the same that is in Freddie's Solo Box Set (2001) in your opinion?
I cannot check now and i think It's better I put off from YouTube if the answer is YES.

But I seem to remember there were differences, this was the first impression I had when I listen to it during our convention.

Thanks for the help!

Rock on

ATTENTION !

Please let someone with better ears check/confirm ( I think it is the "Freddie Vocal Sleeve" ver.) if that's the same version (Barcelona) which has been put on the FM Solo Box Set as people responsible for the copyright could ask You Tube to take down the site.
