You asked for it and here it is . From the vault of a famous UK collector , here comes the famous second BBC session.

For sessions 1 and 3 go to your local CD shop and ask them for either "At The Beeb" or for "Queen at the BBC", sessions 4, 5 and 6 were already shared here.

Date : 25. July 1973
Studio : Studio Langham 1
Produced by : Jeff Griffin
Broadcast on: 13. August 1973 on Bob Harris' Sounds of the Seventies

Originally aired without KYA as a 3-track session, repeated 24. September as a 4-track session

Tracklist

1. See What A Fool I've Been
2. Liar
3. Son And Daughter
4. Keep Yourself Alive

It's Queen's 40th anniversary this year, I hope we won't have to wait for the 50th anniversary till we get an official release of the BBC sessions :-)

I don't know HOW do YOU listen to this, but I personally created a 4 CD compilation for myself, disc 1 includes session 1, session 2, In Concert (Golders Green Hippodrome),  Disc 2 includes session 3, session 4, session 5 and the Live Aid performance, Disc 3 includes my Hammersmith Odeon 75 compilation, and disc 4 includes session 6 and an edited Alexis Korner interview with Brian May on Guitar Greats from 1983. If "somebody" could create a cover for something similar, it would be great :-)

Enjoy

Basically, the BBC cut the famous "Ogre Battle" intro, as they thought it too uncommercial for repeated airings. Unfortunately, the BBC never did re-air the session.

Unfortuately, by the time Band Of Joy published their "Queen At The Beeb CD" in the early 1990's, the intro was well and truely lost.

However, having downloaded from the above link -
Here is [pittrek's] re-creation of Ogre Battle : http://www.multiupload.com/ZJFHYDYILY

All I can say is that he has done an excellent job. I don't really know how he was able to do it - but this is the best attempt at stitching both these bits together I have heard, and believe me, I have listened to some dodgy recreations.

I also think this should be retittled as "Ogre Battle" (BBC Complete Pittrek Restoration version)!

John - permission to post a remaster?

The tape plays a bit fast, and one channel is quieter than the other.

Thanks for getting this out there - it sounds superb.  It's great to finally have the BBC sessions complete in all their high quality glory.
