All my life i  thought the record of that gig is shit, the audio and the video. But now, i just heard the remasters (World We Created, Hard Life y RIR Blues) and it sound fantastic, as good as Montreal! What do you think, boys?

I haven't listened to Rock in Rio Blues yet, but the original on the A Winters Tale cd single sounds great. Because of that I was so looking forward to hearing the new mix of It's A Hard Life, but it sounds dreadful. The vocal sound is good and it's nice to hear the guitar but they have so messed up the drums in a totally different way! Snare has way too much reverb, and the toms are awful. The electronic drums still sound dreadful too

hi, i really love the live in rio songs on the remasters...what do you mean with "messed up drums" ? they actually change the real sound of the performances with these remasters? don't they just give the best possible quality to them?

It's quite interessting how QP made that song better as it was. They took the song from the first Rock in Rio night as basic. Patched some words from the 2nd night into it and at the end, where Freddie had to hit the high note (I did it for LOVE....) QP probably took that one from a different night,. JAPAN concert?

I think that's either a studio outake, or they've fused it with the actual studio vocal.
