Almost all the versions in Queen at the beeb are better than in Queen I and II, in my opinion. Anyone agree- disagree?

I think that "Doin' Alright" from "At The BBC" is much better with Roger on vocals!!!

Agreed, and 'Modern Times' and 'Son And Daughter' are better in their rawer versions, but there's no way that the other versions are better. Why? Because they're the same fucking versions that are featured on the album, except mixed differently and with a different lead vocal.

Oh, they were a cunning bunch!

About "White Queen", its harmony of Freddie's piano and Brian's "Red Special" is better than QII.
Besides, I forgot other differences to comment, excuse me! For, recently I have not listened to them, because I've been busy with watching MK's DVD. So today I'm going to listen to them!

I'm sorry! What I meant is the one on the other CD of BBC Sessions.
Very sorry!

I think in "Modern Times Rock'n'Roll" and "Son And Daughter" of "Queen at the Beeb", they show more edges to the sound, especially with Brian's guitar riff of "SAD". So they are better than the ones in QI. Those numbers prove Queen was one of the hard-rock groups due to its roughness.

Don't see how theyre better - a lot of them are merely the original studio takes with a new vocal/guitar take. The actual properp live takes on the BBC CD sound weak compared to the album versions.

Remember though, the 1977 BBC session (which was also the last) was completely recorded from scratch, so that's the only session probably where they didn't re-use a tape/take from the vaults and re-mix it (unless of course MOTBQ from session 4 is not the album version faded out like some people purport it to be, but rather a different version as well)
