Cologne '74 - despite the dumbass that must have stood right beside the guy with the tape-recorder, that screams for "Liar" all the time...

I most certainly have never seen 99% of the footage you list (I'm jealous!), but I do have MK '82, and I agree that Somebody To Love is smashing!

I have seen a lot of photos with Freddie in black pants with red kneepads and in red pants with black kneepads. What tour/year/concerts were those?

29.03.1976 Tokyo (cool that they did 2 fantastic shows that day!! nice quality)

30.05.1977 Glascow (I'm A Man is played. quality is great since Gypsy Eye release)
11.12.1977 Houston (great show in fantastic quality)

I almost totally agree with you especially about '70s ones. About each tour of '70s I've been keen on espcially, from ADATR tour Glasgow and Earls Court, from the NOTW tour Houston and Stockholm( or Copenhagen), from The Jazz tour Chicago and Montreal are my favorites although I think there are many stuffs circulated from those three tours. Of course Rainbow 20/11/'74, Hammy '75 and Hammy'79 are my favorites, too. And besides I also go for Tokyo 31/03/'76. I'd like to make a list which would show the best bootlegs of each tour if I can although little part of that have been already made in my mind...
