Got it for you... It's the concert recorded on 31-03-1974

http://rapidshare.de/files/1201768/_31-03-1974__Live_at_the_Rainbow__London_.part2.rar.html

Setlist:
01 Father to Son
02 Ogre Battle
03 Son and Daughter
04 Keep Yourself Alive
05 Seven Seas of Rhye
06 Modern Times Rock and Roll
07 Liar

According to several sources, the concert was interrupted in the middle of 'Liar' due to a power cut. The available bootleg recording doesn't prove that, though. Freddie also confused words in Modern Times Rock'n'roll.

Greetings, Rev.

PS: You need to have both files to extract them.

This show is freakin incredible. Thanks alot. However, when extracting the individual files it says that Keep Yourself Alive is corrupted. Possible to correct this? Thanks again......

It´s a `great´ show because of its overdubs...

Was this show slated for broadcast or possible release? If not what would be the point of overdubs? In fact what specific overdubs do you mean and is there a source for said overdub info? That would be cool to read about.

Listen to the vocal harmonies, those can't be real. The bootlegs that are widely available have overdubs, both vocals and music. QP have got the recordings without overdubs. On Greatest Video Hits 1 you can see Now I'm Here from 20.11.1974. This is the version without overdubs. Just normal voices, as they sounded.

Rick,
Maybe I`m ignorant, but that doesn`t sit right with me. You`re saying that QP have the non-overdub copies and that many of the "boots" that are released are overdubbed..by that logic it would seem that:
a) Queen themselves were interested in releasing the material and overdubbed the material for public consumption.
b)That Queen is releasing the boots that are of sounboard quality
c) That Queen were not good enough in their heyday to pull off three part harmony
d) That enough of these boots had studio sessions dedicated to them over the years (without documentation)
I don`t know. It just doesn`t sound logical to me.
As I said maybe I`m wrong..is there any documentation of these sessions?
Cheers
Matt

Personally, I think Now I'm Here on the GVH1 DVD has the same overdubs, but they were just lowered in the mix to sound less obvious. There are clearly three voices at about 3:25, and Brian is shown not at his microphone.

Can't hear any overdubs myself. I thought Queen always sounded this good in 1974. :)

Bloody hell, this show is SMOKING!!!

This is kind of a funny debate.....the tracks sound excellent to me and that's all I need to know. Overdubs or no overdubs

Why haven't I listened to this more often? (I've had it for months)

Queen + Paul Rodgers eat your heart out!!! This is a totally awesome concert.

I can't hear any edit during Liar myself...

Anyone who doesn't have this concert should download it now. The sound is great, and the show is awesome!!

I'm not really an expert on the overdubs or no overdubs / editing thingy but all I can say that it's almost surely not an overdubbed recording and I base this opninion on the fact that Freddie does confuse works in MTRnR.

I don't know if this is enough prove for you guys, but for me it is... I don't really care if a bootleg is edited or something as long as it's a nice concert then I'm a happy man :P

Ive got the rainbow concert video, and i was allways amazed of the live sound that queen had in this concert, there were a few moments i had noticed when i thought they were not playing entirely live ! one occasion is during march of the black queen where it seems freddies piano is playing itself ! or it could be a delay on the piano to make a bigger sound, has anybody else noticed this ?

but i still love this gig its one of my favs

Well... You download it, and then you extract the first file (it will automatically extract the second) with winzip or winrar.
