The Italian "Live In Montreal" is pretty good, but the pitch is a semitone slow. I've got a copy that seems to be right from the master, or a first gen at worst. The sound is as good as it'll get.

This is the one that Sir GH is talking about:

It is in my opinion so far definately the best sounding one that i ever heard and with the correct pitch.

I have both the Italian (which has hiss and low pitch) and Gypsy Eye's (with corrected pitch but a bit too much noise reduction).

What are you talking about a lame crowd????
Even Freddie acknowledges that it is a good audience more that once during the show. At one point he says something like "It feels really good on stage tonight and thats basically because of a good audience!"

Man, apparently the We Will Rock You DVD has given Montreal crowds a bad name.

Check out the Hot Space show as well and you will hear a crowd that is far from lame as well.

The crowd on the Montreal '82 gig sounds in my opinion very good and loud, so it's not that every Montreal show had a lame crown then.

Nooo, they were insane on this night! It's the officially-released 81 show where the crowd was dead. Freddie even pointed out that the crowd was great, beyond the usual rock star chatter he gives. He even mentioned the Montreal audience two nights later in Toronto.
