In Flash's defense, the search button doesn't work worth crap and instead of being pricks, why not just answer the guy's question? I just asked a member of another band's site a similar question and instead of giving me attitude, he offered to send me copies of his favorite live recordings. We're all Queen fans here!

Hmm, are there really people like that in the world? :) Just kidding. There are nice people on this site too, people who would help if you're in trouble, I know some of them, they helped me a lot. Wait a little bit and you'll get in touch with them.
Btw, I'm sorry I can't help you on this one (c'mon, has nobody had the sense to answer the question by now?), I just started downloading my first torrent and don't know many. I think Hammersmith Odeon'75 is however very good quality.


I LOVE QUEEN!

You should get the show from the rainbow in 74, soundboard and a amazin performance by the whole band, also the Kampuchea show, a very good audience recordin and with one of the best freddie performance, mmm check the Zoom Shows from japan, sounds very good

Soundboards theres a lot, check Earls Court, Brasil and the SHOW from Argentina :=)


Loser in the end!!!

I personally don't consider Earls Court, Hammersmith 75 or 79 or any of those professionally recorded shows bootlegs. The best ones I've been listening to lately are Montreal, Toronto and Chicago from December of 78. Killer recordings!!! I saw them a few weeks earlier in Providence, RI here in the States and it was early in the tour but they were fantastic. BUT, listening to those three shows, you can tell they were really in the swing of things at that point in the tour. They were too hot to handle. I think their sound engineer Trip Khalef may have recorded the Montreal show. It has a soundboard quality to it.

Absolutely agree. Unwarranted response to a perfectly reasonable question. If you use the search button you get lots of fragmented info and a couple of similar threads which are fairly old. In the meantime lots more people have joined, with fresh views and opinions. Encouraging sensible posts and making 'newbies' welcome is the way forward (re: Fatties and others' posts).

After all it's quicker to post 'my favourite's Hammersmith '79' than it is to post 'why don't you try using the search button instead of wasting my time'.

If you're the type who gets more satisfaction from the second example above than the first, then I would suggest that you are part of the problem not the solution.

( By the way, i'm glad to see that 'boy of destinys'' rebuke solicited some helpful responses and apologise in advance for taking this thread back off line)

Oh, and my favourite is Hammersmith Odeon, Boxing Day 1979, 'cos I was there !
