This version of the song is beyond superior in my opinion. So much power and passion. Does anyone else agree?

I think it is by far the best of the BBC tracks, I usually replay it after the first listen.

Great track that easily surpasses the album version.

The complete "Session 6" is simply essential listening. Everything is perfect. The sound quality, the sound mix (I love the feeling that the band is standing in front of me which I got only from this session and the NOTW album), the performance of each song - simply wonderful.

Much better than the studio and Live Killers versions.

Yes - great session; drums are killer (the tom fill before the "he spends his evenings alone" line sounds just superb!)

I think Freddie's vocals are superior on the NOTW version, but otherwise this one comes out on top.

Yeah, it's pretty sweet!

Each version of the song is stellar in a different way, even the Live Killers version. It helps that it's a great song to begin with, a Deaky classic!

It's been said many times, he didn't write a lot, but most of them counted in a big way.

I think my favourite thing about the Live Killers version is the audience singing along to the chorus. The live solos at the outro were also pretty nice

I've always loved this version. It made me think that as well produced as the albums are, no one managed to capture the power and intensity that the band could produce.

To me this session points to what the albums could have sounded like. I also agree with Pittrek, NOTW has a great earthy live feel more so than any other Queen album.

Am I the only one who prefers the album version? Particularly the guitar outro... its really beautiful, it sings.. I would sell my first born son to hear it after the fadeout.... right up to when the recording breaks down....

I agree - the outro, especially Brian's guitar parts, is beautiful.

Album outro is better, but as a whole I enjoy BBC more.
