Hi there,

first attempt to make a torrent hope this is working. I grab this from Dime 15min ago. Far superior quality than the previous version I had.

Original Uploader comments:

LDB Special Series #336 (RLR collection)

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

I think I have something really special to share with all Dimers, but first a bit of background. RLR has been a very active
trader back in the early 80´s with very wide musical tastes: he could go from Kiss to Joni Mitchell; from Genesis to Deep
Purple, Queen, Simple Minds, The Who, Springsteen and many more. In the past I could access his enormous collection to get
many U2 tapes some of which I have been sharing with you folks.

RLR had all sorts of tapes in his collection, traded not long after the show happened so most of them are low generation, in
particular tons of shows recorded in Italy which to me are some of the most interesting. Some of them, I had never seen
circulating in the trading circuit. Unfortunately he did not care about generation so this info, except for the shows he
has as masters, is not available.

RLR has kindly given me access once again to his collection. It was like a "kid in a toy shop" situation: it was hard to
select tapes and at the end I came home with some 250 tapes to listen and eventually to transfer in the digital domain. Some
of them will be shared here, possibly the most interesting ones.

Lineage: Unknown recording device > 2nd generation tape > Aiwa Tape Deck TC-WE475 > Audiophile 2496 Soundblaster > HD >
SoundForge 7.0 > CD Wave > FLAC Frontend (level 6)

Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano, tambourine, acoustic guitar)
Brian May (electric guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitar, piano)
Roger Taylor (drums, backing vocals),
John Deacon (bass guitar, electric guitar)
Morgan Fisher (keyboards, piano)

Queen looks like a very popular act among Dimers. Since I started my series I have been asked here and there if I had any Queen
to share. Although I do love the band (albeit only the production from the 70´s), I have never been a collector of live shows.
I have seen only two Queen shows in my career: one in Milano in 1984 and one in Frejus during the Kind of Magic tour. I did
not have a recorder with me on both, for various reasons. I obtained a copy from Milano some years after (but now I have a 1st
generation coming from RLR archives) and now through RLR I also have a good copy of Frejus.

But I decided to seed something else instaed. This is the second show in Zürich in a row, with the band having played the day before.
The tapes also had the supporting act which I also include for completeness.

You can hear this is a low generation, sound is clear although the equipment was not the best you could get in the 80´s. Still, this is
a very energetic show and Freddie in top shape. This is for all Queen crazy fans all over the world!

Just got this one from dime. Thanks for uploading it here.

The uploader on dime has done many fantastic uploads over the years on dime. This RLR collection seems to be really great aswell. I hope we get the Frejus '86 recording too. An upgrade for that show would also be awesome:-)

Upgrades like this are the reason I like this hobby so much:-)

Great share! Thanks!

Sadly, this has the absolute worst version of Staying Power (for the full version). After looking through this show in the superior quality, this is probably the weakest Hot Space show (yes even the Japan ones with Freddie's tired voice are better).

The sound is great! It's about a B+/A- rating going off the Queenliveca sound rating scale! It includes the opening act (Bow Wow Wow), and is musically complete. There's some minor tape warp on "We Are The Champions," but other than that, there's nothing wrong with the recording.

The improv section on Another One Bites The Dust is hilarious (Freddie says "Bite The Dick" a few times)!

This is a second audience source, not a lower gen copy of the existing source.

It's a new source! There's very little tape hiss, and the crowd is more prominent in the mix! The music and vocals are also higher in the mix (compared with the older version). It sounds like this tape was in front of the speakers, and had very enthusiastic fans around him! The crowd doesn't obstruct the music at all, so it's awesome!

It's also less distant-sounding than the previous source!
