I have a small request. I've heard from many people that Queen original recorded different versions of the unreleased song, Silver Salmon. Even an extended version seems to exist, whitch is availible on a compilation bootleg.
I believe it was called: Royal Rarities.

I have a small mp3 of the Silver Salmon song, though it's cut and is in average quality. I would like a better version if it's availible.

Does anybody have this song in good quality or has a bootleg with this song on it?

Thanks in advance.

the extended version isn't really - i think it's a mixup of two tracks - one is some blues/rock and the other is ss

there are several "parts" but they are all principally the same version - but different recordings - ie from ocnventions etc

there is also the mysterious extd version -wht the blues'rock tagged on - but SS is the same take

Nope sorry :-D
"Gedaan" in Dutch simply means in English: "done".

You were pretty close though.

Isn't there a part 1&2 of Silver Salmon. Or so i've heard. I just have a version that's poor quality and it's about 3.30 long.

Yes that's the version I have as well.

there are about 6/7 "parts"
but they are all the same
the only differences

are the start points
the volume and clarity of band speech
the clarity of the music
the end point
the "blues/rock" fake bit

but if you listen to the body of each take they are the same

I can mail to you my version of the song (perhaps the_hero offered to do the same thing, but I don't speak Dutch, so I've got no idea. Well, it's not excellent quality, but it's the entire song and I kinda like it. Just send me your email adress.
Question: when was this recorded? I think somebody reffered to it as a Smile track redid by Queen. Is it so?


I LOVE QUEEN!

I think it was recorded during the Queen II sessions. But I've heard that Brian originally wrote it during the recording for the first Queen album.

Anyway I would very much like to have your version if possible!
My email adress is: jeroen_van_eden@wanadoo.nl

Thanks very much! :-)

now i feel utterly confused

i wasn't aware of Brian's writing claim
because I thought it belonged to Freddie's (so-called) bible trilogy

Jesus
Silver Salmon
Mad The Swine

happy to be corrected - but it thought all three were Brian songs

is someone here confusing Silver Salmon writing credit with Polar Bear?

Well I heard from a friend that Brian would be responsible for Silver Salmon but I wouldn't be supprised if Freddie wrote it.
