Listening to the Raw session of this song makes me think how much better this tune would been with freddie on vocals. Always liked the album Version, but Freddie took it to another level. I like the more Rock n Roll feel of freddie singing it.

I had the complete opposite reaction. I thought it made sense why they dropped it from their set so quickly. Even Brian's guitar didn't have the same big sound of the studio either.

I fell for Freddie singing All Dead but not Sleeping on the Sidewalk.

I've seen this a few times now but I agree with the OP. I loved Freddie singing SotS much better. I loved the feel of the live version....

All Dead All Dead works better with Brian on lead vocals...but I'm happy to have both versions now. And Freddie's is sublime. I actually prefer the hybrid version I think...
