Queen

Rotterdam, Netherlands
Ahoy Rotterdam
April 20, 1978

As requested by our good friend Pittrek..

This is the (almost) complete audience recording from the second night in Rotterdam, sounding better than previous circulating copies.  Thanks to AH Seligman for the tapes.

* AUD > ? > CDR (x) > WAV (GoldWave pitch/speed correction) > FLAC level 8
** AUD > ? > CDR (x) > WAV (GoldWave pitch/speed correction) > FLAC level 8

The beginning of Liar is filled in with a higher generation copy.

Most circulating copies these days cut out after We Are The Champions.  As stated on Queenlive.ca (who is that guy. anyway?) :

'The first 20 seconds of Sheer Heart Attack from the first night were spliced into the recording to make it appear as if it was complete (the edit was easily noticeable, as the tape speeds of the two recordings were different).  But some collectors may have thereby wrongfully assumed that the second encores were entirely from the first night, which may account for their absense on circulating copies through the years.'

So I simply removed that bit of tape from the first night, and we're left with what seems to be the longest existing recording of the second night.

Disc 1:

 1) We Will Rock You (slow/fast) *
 2) Brighton Rock *
 3) Somebody To Love *
 4) Death On Two Legs *
 5) Killer Queen *
 6) Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy *
 7) I'm In Love With My Car *
 8) Get Down Make Love *
 9) The Millionaire Waltz *
10) You're My Best Friend *
11) Spread Your Wings *
12) Liar **/*
13) Now I'm Here *
14) Love Of My Life *
15) '39 *
16) My Melancholy Blues *

Disc 2:

 1) White Man *
 2) vocal/guitar solos *
 3) The Prophet's Song (reprise) *
 4) Stone Cold Crazy *
 5) Bohemian Rhapsody *
 6) Keep Yourself Alive *
 7) Tie Your Mother Down *
 8) We Will Rock You *
 9) We Are The Champions *
10) Sheer Heart Attack [cut] *
11) Jailhouse Rock *
12) God Save The Queen *

Where in Canada are you from Sir GH? I'm from Montreal (and not am not French). By the way, thanks for your site, great guide on researching which bootlegs to use spend my bandwidth on, since I look for the better sounding ones... and more complete ones.

Also, thanks for the upgrade (thumbs up)!
