Queen - Princess Road (TARANTURA)
Live in Shiritsu Kohseinenkin-Kaikan, Himeji, Hyogo Japan
Wednesday March 24th 1976
Princess Road (Tarantura silver CD)--> Flac level 8 > WAV > Harbal 1.5 > Wavelab 5.01b > FLAC (level 8)

Hi Folks,

Usual stuff.  Comparison file of Liar here
https://rapidshare.com/files/4268574515/Liar_comparison.wav 
The song starts with the original then switches to the remaster every two bars or so.

Many many thanks to bootLuca the original uploader, without whom...

**As always, I have restored/remastered this FOR MY OWN USE. I hope the community sees it as enough of an upgrade to want it, but if you don't like it, please don't download it.**

Firstly, this recording has been crushed by compression, and it's impossible to undo. However, by correcting the equalisation I have minimised the effect and significantly increased the peak-to-average ratio (dynamic range).

Secondly, each track has been individually normalised by Tarantura, resulting in, for example, White Queen being the same volume as Stone Cold Crazy.  This normalisation also causes the raising of background noise (i.e. tape hiss and crowd noise) on quieter tracks relative to louder ones, so I have manually matched the transitions between tracks so the volume no longer 'jumps' when a new song starts.

As for the sound, the bulk of the equalisation was done with Har-Bal. I then applied high- and low-pass filters (essentially sophisticated bass and treble controls) with Waves VEQ4 & REQ equalisers, then brought it back up to level (-0.2dB) with a Waves L3 limiter in Wavelab.

I have re-tracked the songs so there are now less tracks, corrected the balance between left and right channels and applied new smoother fades to disc beginnings and ends. All tracks were converted to 24 bits (increased dynamic range/lower noise floor versus 16 bit) and 96KHz (moving any processing distortion into an inaudible bandwidth) prior to processing.

NO new compression was applied. And...no denoisers!

**Please note that if you are directly comparing this version with the original, it will sound quieter.**

Nice upgrade but Freddie's voice in a terrible shape (imho) never heard a worse performance of Bohemian Rhapsody

:D

You think this is bad? Check out some of the Japan 1979 versions.

BTW, thanks Stark!
