According to Greg Brooks (queenonline, recent Q&A) Let Me Live, version featuring Rod Stewart was recorded during Hot Space sessions... Up until now I thought it was 1983, so Works sessions, but...
What do you think...?

Wasn't finished...
Just like "It's A Beautiful Day"(1980) or "I Guess We're Falling Out"(1988), or quite few others...

The origins of Let Me Live are supposed to be in 1976, As a collaboration of Freddie and Roger, for A Day at the Races

Where is it from...? Both STL and Let Me Live are gospel-influenced tracks, but... were they really started at pretty much the same time...? Does any hand-written lyrics from '76 exist...? Or just rumours...?

I don`t think LML is from 1976, but I don`t have anything to confirm or deny it. What if it`s from 1966?

Anyway... Greg himself said he answers from the top off his head. Moreover he didn`t know Brian sang the first part of Who Wants To Live forever, so possibly he could have confused `82 with `83 or believed Hot Space was from `83... many possibilities


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

As Sebastian said, we can't prove it really is from 1976.

Actually it started in 1967 when Aretha Franklin's sister, Erma Franklin recorded the first version of 'Piece of My Heart'
