IF this has been said before i apologise but havind had the privelige of "on fire" for xmas and having heard other live tracks the versions off the hot space album sound much better live than the original, for example staying power and backchat sound much more suited sounding like it does on stage.

Anyone got thier opinions on this?

I do enjoy the live versions very much, yes. Especially the solo on Back Chat. More than the album? probably, but then I myself prefer live feel anyway.

Yeah all Hot Space tracks sound brilliant live and did anyone notice on the Live at the Bowl concert Freddie sings a line of Backchat wrong? He says 'walking in your sleep' instead of 'talking in your sleep.' Ha Ha. Please correct me if I've got this wrong but I'm sure that's what he says.

Staying Power is definately better live, I think. I just think it sounds better with a faster tempo.

Action sounds nice with real bass and the big ending. Have you noticed that for the three Roger`s songs they did the same thing? Studio version fading out live version finishing on sustained vocals and resolution ("this woooooooold is using me", "loooooooooooooves you", "will soon be doooooooooooone").

Staying Power I prefer live as well, more guitar from John, more guitar from Brian, plus the harmonies of Roger & Brian are nice.

Body Language & Calling All Girls have a better sound with Roger singing harmonies. Put Out The Fire I prefer in studio, better harmonies (much more powerful, for obvious reasons) and the cracking solo. I also prefer Under Pressure in the studio, with Fred hitting the high A and David`s voice, plus the double tracked guitars and the piano bit.

Back Chat sounds better imo with the complete ending instead of a lame fade out, Life Is Real.. never payed much attention to that one live.


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.

on the topic of another album, I personally prefer the hard rock live feel of SHA as opposed to the punk feel of the NOTW version

What about It's Late? that wasn't punk. And anyway, I kindof like punk so I must disagree.

And yeah, I like the electric drums on Back Chat, although the guitar solo's the best.

Definitely! Who knew Brian could pull that off like he did, you know, great guitar on a "funk/black" song. I was impressed.

Heh, indeed. That MUST be the worst track on the album. I will never understand how that wound up on the U.S. Greatest Hits album.
