Brian's just lower in the mix than Roger and Freddie. And then again, his vocals have always been a lot softer than Roger's.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

How about John's bass being buried in the mix on live recordings?
You hear him on certain tunes like AOBTD but otherwise you can hardly hear him.

Never seen the Live At The Bowl DVD?? John's bass is kinda dominant on that recording.

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Yes, I have seen the Live at the Bowl DVD. He does seem to come out better in the mix on the DVD than on some of the live albums. Wembley on cd was disappointing for that.

That's the one reason I like bootlegs. You get to hear John's bass and Brian and Roger's vocals more depending on the quality of the recording of course.

i always thought John's bass was usually quite high in the mix

you can certainly hear it well on live versions of

there's also the small fact of how the accoustics of certain auditoria change once they are filled with people...the stuff probably sounds totally different in rehearsal

also different venues affect the sound too...UFO's Strangers In The Night was recorded at two separate gigs and you can tell which was which - by listening to the bass and drums
