This is a vinyl rip of the vinyl picture disc bootleg 'Recorded live At The Groenoordhallen ... 1980'. Although the bootleg doesn’t have a real title, the cover (which isn't more than a full color A4 paper wrapped around the LP) tittles it: 'Recorded Live At The Groenoordhallen Leiden The Netherlands On November 27, 1980'
This is the very same audience source that was used on countless vinyl boots from this concert. The ones entitled: 'We Will Entertain You' and 'Gamemania' were shared on Queen Zone before, but these are from a different press. All of these normal vinyl bootlegs have the same matrix number: RR-069 C, while the picture disc version has the matrix number: LP Q 1 A/B.
I think this one sounds a bit better than the ones shared before, so this would be a little upgrade (but don't expect a miracle!).
All operations are done in high resolution 24bit/96kHz and what you get is basically an exact copy from the lp. I only boost the sound with 6 dB (absolutely no clipping and/or compression), and faded out the silent parts. The lp has a very noisy groove, but you won't notice a thing this way. Artwork is included.
I've made two versions and torrents. The first one is in 24bit/96kHz for those who want the best possible sound quality. The second is in 16bit/44.1kHz for those who are happy enough to have it in CD quality.
