This is one of the best versions! Freddie sings it fairly similar to the studio version (albeit without the falsetto C5s), and even hits album phrasing at around 2:54! He also does very nice harmonic phrasing for the last chorus! He also nails strong B4s in the bridge!

The version is from Phoenix 1980!

London(1980/12/8) version is pretty good too.

I also think the version from London on 8th December 1980 is better.

The same reason why historians look at a 2" x 2" piece of papyrus with water damage - it's a unique piece of history.
