It is pretty bad, but it serves as more of a sampler for Wembley than an album in its own right. Kind of just gives you a taste of the Magic Tour, I suppose.

I like the Knebworth tracks actually. They sound better than the Wembley tracks in my opinion.

They cut most of the tracks for Live Magic and some of them are pretty good, IMO, like I Want To Break Free... Just imagine that it's a giant medley of the Magic Tour and enjoy!

Funny i was playing "live killers" on the other day and i loved playing it again all the way through in my opinion one of the best setlist ever on vinyl or cd, and yes live magic is alright but only alright nothing to write home about on that lp they should have released a full concert rather than titbits off certain gigs.

But hey play it enjoy it.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

Have to agree the Live Magic is too short, whereas Live Killers & Queen On Fire you really get the whole feeling of being at a Queen concert.

all of you that like live killers must research the thread "live killer venues".just superb,tells all about the sinister mixing and how each song could be bits from 2-3 different shows.

Does anyone know WHY it was edited down to a single album? Had it been the full concert, on a double CD, it would have been a classic.

"A double CD" is answer on your question. It's much easy to cut/edit tracks (like later they did with Innuendo and GH2 vinyl releases) than release double or triple set.

it was just butchered even TYMD didn't escape the chop-they missed out Now I'm here, Lap Of the Gods all the heavy stuff in favour of IWTB and FWBF- dear me.

i really hate this queen product.
i agree with the knebworth tracks are better
as wembley.
it should be LIFE MAGIC live at knebworth park
a 2 cd,lp,mc set with the entire gig.
not this irretating product.
live killers is great.

Its nice to have a few different versions of the tracks from other venues than just Wembley officially released though I think, even if assessed as a release its not very good.
I think I prefer the version of AOBTD to the Wembley version actually....
