Queen
London, UK
Rainbow Theatre
March 31, 1974

Soundboard Master (multi-track) > ? > reel-to-reel > WAV (GoldWave speed correction) > FLAC level 8

1) Procession
2) Father To Son
3) Ogre Battle
4) Keep Yourself Alive
5) Liar
6) interview

This is a huge upgrade of the already-excellent Rainbow Theatre tracks.  Many thanks to 'Ghostofasmile' for the initial share.  I simply edited the non-Queen and official material out and corrected the speed.

Somebody please upload this to Dime.  This is one of those rare Queen recordings that needs to be enjoyed beyond the Queen community.  One may argue that this could be the single best Queen live recording there is.  Not only is it one of the very best-sounding, but it is early, raw Queen.

Whoever does it will have to make their own FLAC fingerprints.  I have tried to do it, but I can't figure it out.

If anyone downloaded from the initial link, please grab it again.  I realized after the fact that the tape ran a bit slow, so I corrected the speed.

Do you have a transfer of the RATW show #22 that also features the Rainbow concert?

I only ask as perhaps there are more songs on there.

>>>>>>>>>>>>
I don't own those reels... And don;t know where they are. It is not common for a radio station to sell the reels... mostly they were retaped or stored in the archives... You could ask the radio station though...

The only I thing I know : this was indeed the 7 track broadcast which later that year was bootlegged in vinyl like sheetkeeckers LP later 1975.... But this vinyl does NOT come from the reel tapes but from the radio airwaves...

So whoever has the Reels.... should upload it here.... haha But again slim chanche these things left the station...

Thanks, I have already emailed Dan so you never know.


So what exactly are the other reel to reel transfers you have?

Have to take a look at that , some radio shows which only features album tracks...And BBC sessions, but since John already shared these... Don;t expect any new show...upgrade perhaps... At least there more shows with rainbow and golden green... Havent touched these in very long time... let alone listned to them...

Hey Real Wizzard , I already exceeded the 500 downloads...

What's the number running on this side ?

Wonder how long it will take when this one hits the japanese bootleg market...Hope they will use the speed corrected version... and don;t destroy the original sound...

===============

OK, I suppose I'll let you have this one :p

On a very positive note, I think the LP source is no longer needed, since the beginnings of Procession and Liar are here.

I have no idea.  Where can you check?

It doesn't bother me if they do.  At least we'll have the original.  What sucks is when a label like Tarantura compresses and distorts the hell out of their recordings, and we can't access the original.

Hey man, can you hang fire for a couple of days if you're still going to do this?   I may have something for you if Bob approves...

Thank you very much for this... your work cutting the tracks was amazing, and the original share... wondeful!

Gotta love Freddie's "What do you think of the show so far? "  Between the chorus of Ogre Battle and the second verse =)
