Queen
Puebla, Mexico
Estadio Olimpico de beisbol Ignacio Zaragoza
October 17, 1981


This is a merge of the various bootlegs produced from the primary audience recording of this show. All the songs are there, but there are several cuts, during and between songs. The quality varies from song to song, but much of this certainly may remain the best available from this show. You be the judge !

Now I'm Here and Dragon Attack were cut between sides A and B of the LP, but there was some overlap so I was able to seamlessly cross-fade the two together.

The show actually ran under 90 minutes due to the uncooperative audience. Despite Mercury's frustrations being clearly expressed throughout (some of which was cut from the bootlegs, like the Chelsea Cobbler comment after shoes were being thrown at the band during Now I'm Here), he and the boys put in a killer performance. Note how he phrases the back half of the second chorus of Save Me exactly like the single version.

Enjoy, and keep it lossless!

^ I knew you'd point those two out. Mercury hits those high Cs that he so rarely hit live.

Thanks for this.

I can't help with a torrent these few days because of the lunar new year celebrations.

And when he does hit them, they sound really good!

Fred was a beast during the South American, Mexican, and the two Montreal shows--hitting clean, effortless C5s on STL (check out the 1st Montreal show--blows away the filmed version), hitting the WATC C5 on three gigs (Monterrey and the two Puebla shows) and singing Play The Game with all he's got!

Probably his strongest set of vocal shows since the Crazy Tour (and maybe the first couple early 1980 shows)!

Fo shiz. This was his peak, no doubt.

And say what you want about Hot Space, but vocally speaking it's arguably the best he'd sound on record.

Bob,

You had made a 2-source merge back in 2007. It's seems to me it was more complete and better in quality. What's the point of the recent different merge?

Here's an info from 2007 merge:
========================================
Queen
Puebla, Mexico
Estadio Olimpico Ignacio Zaragoza
October 17, 1981


This is a mix of two sources from the first night in Puebla. There are still a few parts missing between songs, but this is most likely the best quality and most complete version of this concert we'll ever hear. About 95% of the show comes from an almost excellent first generation tape, and I filled in the gaps with an inferior source. The better source was shared at Queenzone last year in mp3, but luckily I managed to track down the lossless version.

Source 1 lineage: AUD > Master > 1st generation tape > WAV > CDR (1) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)
Source 2 lineage: AUD > Master > cassette (x) > WAV > CDR (x) > WAV > FLAC frontend (level 8)


Disc 1:
Speech
Overture
We Will Rock You (fast)
Let Me Entertain You
Play The Game
Somebody To Love
Killer Queen
I'm In Love With My Car
Get Down, Make Love
Save Me
Now I'm Here
Dragon Attack
Now I'm Here (reprise)
Love Of My Life

Disc 2:
Keep Yourself Alive
Drum Solo
Guitar Solo
Flash
The Hero
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Bohemian Rhapsody
Tie Your Mother Down
Another One Bites The Dust
We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
God Save The Queen


Priceless moments: During the middle of NIH, Freddie reacts to the rowdy audience throwing shoes at the band: "Feels like bloody Chelsea Cobbler, I tell you!" (for those who don't know, Chelsea Cobbler is a men's shoe store in London). And at the end of the show, he says "Thank you for the shoes! Adios amigos, you motherfuckers! You bunch of tacos, goodbye!" However, it's worth noting that on the second night, these were his closing words: "Thank you for being a totally different audience tonight. We all thank you." The stories often circulate that Queen's concerts in Mexico were horrible for the band, but the bootlegs reveal that it was just the one concert in Puebla that gave them problems. Fans who attended the Monterrey show have also said their concert went smoothly. As for what happened in Mexico outside the concert venues, that's another story!


Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered. As always with my shares, be sure that this recording is not made available at Queenzone or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format. Keep lossless files lossless.


Enjoy!

Sir GH

The versions are quite different.

The 2007 merge is from non-bootleg cassettes, while this one uses material only from the LP/CD bootlegs. There is less tape hiss on most of the latter, so it's a worthy comparison. Have a listen to each version of Somebody To Love and Killer Queen, for instance..

Of course getting the uncut audience master would put all of this to rest, but that's another matter.. !

Oh no, I'm not changing my name again.

Besides, one can argue that being real is better than being a lord.

...or is it !?
