Artist: Brian May
Location: Le Reservoir, Paris, France
Date: June 9, 1998
Lineage: Unknown > Tape > Cool Edit Pro > CD-R > FLAC (8)

Don't know if this has been shared  before, but it's a quite nice audience recording so I hope someone didn't have this yet... Quality isn't the best, quite a bit of hiss. Still worth it for one of the few live performances of Why Don't We Try Again. I've also got the Rome show from a couple of days earlier somewhere. I recorded this from a tape I got in a trade 10+ years ago, so I haven't got a clue what the original lineage was.

Tracklist:

Only Make Believe
On My Way Up
Driven By You
Why Don't We Try Again
Tie Your Mother Down
Hammer To Fall

Also includes a 20 minute interview with Brian, recorded in May 1998 for the Dutch TV station The Music Factory.

Thanks a lot Pim for sharing this one in FLAC format.
As far as I know this recording was only shared in MP3-format before !
So another flac-gap is filled in :)

you were wrong, I confirm that this version of hammer to fall is taken from the mentioned cd!

I think that all these files are mp3 sourced, can anyone check this?

Uhmm... The Red Special CD was an official recording. This is an audience recording. Not the same thing. Yes, On My Way Up and Hammer To Fall from this show were released on Red Special - but this recording features the original audience recording, I did not edit in the Red Special versions. 

As I said - as far as I can remember I recorded this from a tape I got in a trade, so unless the original taper first converted it to MP3 before recording it on the tape I got from him I think you're making a mistake...?

It looks lossless to me.  There's a little something around 18.5 kHz, but nothing to be alarmed about.  It definitely isn't mp3-sourced.  Thanks for the share, Pim !

Yes, surely On My Way Up is audience recording but Hammer To Fall sounds exactly like the official cd...

anyway thank you for the beautiful share...

You must be listening to a different Red Special than I am. The original Red Special is excellent quality, while this audience recording is good at best. It's the same song, but there's a huge difference in quality. I DO know that Mr Scully lists a version of this on his website which DOES have the version of Hammer... edited in from Red Special - but this is not the version I shared here.

Can anyone please confirm to Luca that the version of Hammer to Fall in this torrent is NOT taken from the Red Special mini-album?

I'm sure of what I say

have you compared both versions?

the HTF shared here has a lower volume (maybe the same frequency cut of the other tracks) but sounds identical than the one on official cd, same instruments sound and level

the HTF shared sounds much better the other audience tracks of the concerts, the brian voice is more clear

your audience version start at the same identical point than the official...

Can someone please send me this official track?  I'd like to chime in on this one, but I'd ideally like to have the material to do the comparison with.. :-)

They should have released the whole show and not just the two songs on the Red Special album.

Thanks. I always thought the Red Special album was an unofficial Japanese release?

Oh!  Well, it sounds like an audience recording to me.  A very good one!

ok, I disagree but... I remain on my idea!

in my opinion, in terms of audio quality, hammer to fall sounds much better than the rest of the show!

AMEN! :-)
