Hello everyone

This has been a long time coming for me, I had recorded this when it was broadcast on 16th June 1998 & my friend did also, however I accidentaly recorded in mono & long play (Derr). My friend on the other hand did record properly but missed the Tommy Vance intro & the start of on my way up (My friend has recently explained that I had arrived at his door with a crate of lager & that's why he missed it).

So having not seen my friend for many years, we recently got in contact again & I asked him if he would transfer his old VHS version to DVD & send to me, which I am glad to say he has done. The result is an un edited version of the event Sky > VHS > DVD & is the best version of this gig that I am aware of.

All adverts & whatever was recorded afterwards has been left as it was recorded

So any thanks must go to my good friend "Rock Dave" who rummaged through his garage for over a week to find this & covert to DVD.

I hope you like it & as with anything I have, it must be shared & enjoyed by the fans !!!!

Cheers : Jon

I have the whole thing on VHS (recorded in stereo on a Professional High Grade tape back in 1998).  I can't reacll offhand if it has the Tommy Vance intro or not, but certainly all the songs and interviews are complete. If anyone wuld like me to upload this version, let me know & I'lll author it and get it up here sometime over the next week or so. (Busy busy at work at the moment.

Sounds good, if quality from this & the two other sources are as good as or better, then we should have no issue in comiling an ultimate version if need be??

Can I suggest you upload all alternatives & we can compare/suggest which should be used

Best regards : jon

No, the only items I bought from swinging Freddie were

- Brian May - May Day (Utrecht, 23/9/1998)
- Brian May - Gijon (15/9/1998)
- Roger Taylor - Live At The Garage (23/3/1999)
- Roger Taylor - Cyberbarn (23/9/1998)

Still a shame, as I can't believe I ever paid for cd-r's.
