COMMENTS:

Despite (at time of writing) recent unfortunate developments in certain inner trading circles committed by people afflicted with something called 'Priority Thinking for People with Common Sensibilities', we are not in any way deterred from sharing the 2nd installment in the GT series of previously unreleased and unheard Queen concert tapes. Following the success of our first group effort, Earl's Court 1977 First Night, we are pleased to put out a new alternate audience source for Queen's legendary concert at Hyde Park '76.

Despite the barely listenable quality (which took a LOT of effort to make it listenable through remastering it from the original raw audio!), this bootleg does not contain significant cuts in "Stone Cold Crazy" and "Liar" unlike other bootleg sources from the same show, as pointed out by GT himself. There ARE a couple minor brief cuts and hiccups here and there, but thankfully only inbetween songs! "Liar" however has some strange click action going on which we have tried our best to significantly reduce through intense pop/click removal methods!

We hope you, the listener and Queen fan alike, will enjoy our latest release all the same!

I would kindly appreciate some feedback if possible from people here as to the remaster job. Our studio dude Joshua doesn't browse on these forums, so he asked me to relay any feedback to him directly :-)

And for reference, here's an A:B sample using Boh Rhap, going back and forth every 10 seconds between the raw audio and the remaster mix:

Wat possible remasterring could have been done if this recording sounds like its coming out of a fat mans asshole?


Troll?

Listen to the sample. There's obviously been a lot of work done to clear up the hiss/pops/distotion (weird water-sounding effect) without diminishing the quality of the recording. It may not seem like much but the person(s) who restored it must have put in a lot of work, and knew what they were doing. I really doubt anyone could make it sound much better (if any) than what it is. It's the best we will be able to hear out of the recording, wether you appreciate the work or not.

My compliments go to Joshua. I'm pretty new to the whole audience tape thing, so I personally haven't heard an audience recording cleaned up so well! The sound hasn't been diminished (At least none that I can notice) and it sounds a lot cleaner than the original, I didn't know that was possible!

Joshua has had several year's experience recording and mixing his own band's material, and last year completed a certified audio engineering course, so I would say it's more than fair to say he knows what he's doing.
And I should add, it's very generous of him to take time out of his band and studio schedule to kindly help restore the audio tapes to a listenable state, so I think we should appreciate that much :-)


PS. Don't feed the trolls ;-)
