Queen
Providence, RI, USA
Providence Civic Center
August 26, 1980

Folks, this is a great day in Queen land.  First they just announced the complete first night at Wembley '86 will be released on DVD, and a few hours ago I acquired the first excellent-sounding recording from 1980 to come out in ages - probably since the Chicago master came out 6-7 years ago.

This is a substantial upgrade to previous copies of the Providence audience tape.  Also worth noting is it has an extra 15 seconds of tape before Now I'm Here after the tape flip, but it is missing the overture and most of Jailhouse Rock.  I have thus also included a version of Jailhouse Rock that merges in the rest of the song from a higher generation copy of the audience tape.

There is no specific lineage here, but this is from a cassette made from a reel-to-reel around 1990 that was not far from the master - likely a first or second gen cassette.  Many thanks to ThomasQuinn for transferring his cassette for all to enjoy.

AUD > Master Cassette > ? > Reel-to-reel > Cassette > WAV > FLAC level 8

Throughout Brian May's solo spot, the new owner of Freddie Mercury's tambourine thrown away during Keep Yourself Alive can be heard playing it throughout, indicating how close to the stage the recording was taped from.
