Maybe it was meant like this? I don't hear any speed issues. It sounds like the album version, but played at a slower pace.

Thanks Sikke!

This isn't a demo.

It's a properly mixed almost complete version of the song, with a slightly different treatment of the vocals (and one alternate vocal take in the second chorus), and before it was sped up.

A demo is when a song is in the very beginning stages, and usually isn't even recorded with high end gear.

Still, cool to hear the differences. Thanks.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Hmmm...I've no idea who this Sikke is, but that sounds far too close to the final version to be a "demo". In fact, if you took the released version, slowed it down by about 8% (to get the lengths to match up), added some needless echoes, you'd be 99% the same as this.

Thanks. Nice to hear the differentiation between Freddie's and Roger's vocals without the phasing effect on them.

Some lovely pics in the video stills montage too!

Like Wizard said, the slower speed is how the album version was originally recorded, before being sped up, and thus shifted up in key as well.

The Real Wizard you are real bugger.


If by "bugger" you mean "accurate", then yes. And you are obviously a complete moron incapable of an adult conversation.

Who the f&ck are you with your 11 posts to your name to just attack, without any substantiation, someone who actually knows what they're talking about?

Your brief history on this forum consists of leaking a rare video under a fake name and attempting (in possibly faked broken English) to denigrate those who speak with accuracy and dare to ask questions. You're not impressing anyone.

Good day to you.

Wonder how they managed to screw up the mix so badly after this.

I have just seen this video this afternoon too, right before I saw your thread.
I prefer this version to the album's version.
Thank you Sikke^^

I remember reading a post from a Queen fan saying their first experience of Queen was the NOTW album because they liked the WWRY/WATC single so they bought the album but couldn't get past track 3 so didn't bother with them for ages. Purely understandable. This track on the album would have made people keep listening....

When I first heard it I thought it was the original album version, the only difference being it was slowed down, plus some vocals were different. But if it's Sikke's, it's genuine.

Not only vocals, extra echoes, drums more prominent, lack of certain effects, etc etc etc.

if it wasn't Sikke, listening to the take you can easily tell it's genuine, you can't make this one without the multitracks
