While reading my 40 Yrs Of Q book, I came across this interesting piece of info, it's from p61, "However, just in case they were misunderstood, Queen released a live album that was available only in South Africa, with all profits going to....".

Do we know what this "live album" was? please back up any answers with fact.

obviously it's a bootleg containing material shared here (as for the 1st half of the sun city concert).
the jackson tracks. hum. i don't get the point why they're added. They're pretty common amongst collectors, won't you say...

The live album was called simply "Live". It's only an edited version of "Live Killers", more info here : http://queenpedia.com/index.php?title=Live . Nothing unique, just some songs have been left out.

Sun City Boys is of course a bootleg, the mp3s which were the source for it were shared here

Oh, & it was called "Live In Concert" too! Album cover was a live image taken from The Works tour.

That was actually a DIFFERENT album with the SAME content :-)
