Queen
Dortmund, Germany
Westfalenhalle
January 21, 1979


This is a merge of various recordings from Dortmund. For some reason both tapes have a lot of cuts and edits, and here they are assembled to present the show in its most complete and fluid form possible.

With the emergence of a new tape, the medley (Death On Two Legs through Get Down Make Love), It's Late, and Bohemian Rhapsody are all heard for the first time here. But the medley actually seems to be from an alternate audience source, as its quality is inferior to the rest of the show (and it doesn't match any other shows from the tour). There is also some more tape at the beginning of the show.

On the old tape that circulated for decades, Keep Yourself Alive was inserted after '39 to mirror the track listing of Live Killers, but the new tape has it in its proper location after Fat Bottomed Girls.

On all copies the latter half of Somebody To Love was patched in from one of the Seattle 77 LPs (probably Duck Soup), and it has been removed.

Love Of My Life is the only song that is still completely missing. Somewhere down the line a cross-fade was made after Dreamers Ball, where the preambles to both Love Of My Life and '39 can be heard at the same time.

Mercury's voice is not in great shape at this show, but the rest of the band are in fine form.

Thanks to Ghostofasmile and The Kurgan for providing their tapes.

Enjoy, and convert to lossy only for your own (ab)use.

Even though Mercury wasn't in top form, I cherish every live version of It's Late, and we have a new one here.

This sure doesn't happen every day.

Have fun, folks !

Thanks a lot to both of you!
Is there a chance that you'd share also the full second source?

There isn't one.

Side A of Kurgan's cassette is simply this:

We Will Rock You (fast), Let Me Entertain You, Somebody To Love [cut, second half from Seattle '77 LP], Death On Two Legs [cut], Killer Queen, Bicycle Race, I'm In Love With My Car, Get Down Make Love, Now I'm Here, Mustapha (intro), Don't Stop Me Now, Spread Your Wings, Bohemian Rhapsody [cut]

...most of which is heard here in the merge.

DO2L through GDML are from the alternate source (or it may even be a much higher gen copy of this source, but it seems to be different people near the taper, which led me to make that conclusion). So everything from that source is here in this share.

Both cassettes have a ton of edits done somewhere down the line - they share some of the same edits, and they have their differences, both in content in quality. But this is all I had to work with from source 2.

Thanks for this, there are surprisingly so few decent recordings from this tour that every near complete recording is welcome.
