never really thought about this before but - when listening ot the 1977 BBC radio sessions i noticed

as It's late disappears up the arse of Get Down Make Love i wondered if the ending of Spread Your Wings was an attempt to make things go "full circle"

after all - the "missing" end section of It's Late shows up nicely in the end section of Spread Your Wings

An excellent point! I've never thought of it this way. The accelerated ending of Spread Your Wings is my favourite part of the '77 session as well as the New York 12-1-77 bootleg. Too bad they stopped performing the song this way by '78.

I just love Fred's piano at the end of the BBC SYW... great stuff!

I just came into posession of nearly all of the bbc sessions, and I have to say that the ending of Spread Your Wings is by far my favouirite part! It sounds amazing. The only track I'm missing now is March of the black queen. Any help as to where to get hold of it would be greatly appreciated!

I thought Freddie said it was some kind of remix of the album version, but I don't know where I heard it...

No, it's not a remix. It is exactly the same track that appears on Queen II.

If you want to listen to the BBC Session of "The March Of The BLack Queen" all you have to do is take your Queen II CD.

No, they actually didn´t. Spread Your Wings was still played during the Live Killers and Crazy tours in 1979. The London´79 version is even one of the greatest recorded performances of the song.

with regards to March Of The Black Queen, whether the beeb version is any different or not we'll have to wait 'til the box sets are released in 2158 to find out for sure.

Forgive me - but can the people on this actually read?

With regards to "March Of The Black Queen" - there is NO BBC version - Period - it even segues into "Funny How Love Is".

How many other ways are there to say this?

That would be "still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest". You ARE a music expert, right? ;-)

NOT on Paul Simon I aint!

Come to think of it, I am no brain surgeon or NASA scientist either, but neither fact negate the truth that there is still NO BBC "...Black Queen" version, however much we wish for it.

Besides, "A man believes what he wants to believe and disregards the rest" - or - "still a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest", basically express the same sentiment - don't they?

-John, why do you post some link to a collection series that you'll obviously never complete? (Just had to ask). Not that you'll even answer my question, but hey, a lot of people here want to see those articles finished as well-
-PS. Fuck off with the "Bum's" parody of my nickname-

I will e-mail Greg Brooks later today about the matter of the MOTBQ BBC take. He DOES have access to the tapes himself, so he may give me an answer.

EDIT: Just e-mailed him. Now I'm waiting for a reply, hopefully within two day's time

Because it PROVED my point and ANSWERED the poster's question - doh!!!

"PS. Fuck off with the "Bum's" parody of my nickname..."
Why? It is much politer than calling someone a b*stard - don't you thnk?

I will e-mail Greg Brooks... he may give me an answer.
I don't give a rat's ars* what Greg says. There is NO BBC "March Of The Black Queen". How do you want me to spell it?
