Who better enjoys using Houston '77 to toy with Queen fan's emotions and being mean-spirited?
As Jim Beach is basicly clueless as to fan demand for this concert ... the Queen trading community wins by default. Fortunately, the long-established traders have chosen not to participate in the kill-joy banter about Uruguay 83.
IMHO, Houston '77 is the main must have concert that is not generally available. I can do without Liverpool 73, Milwaukee 76 or Norway 82 as similar concerts are readily available. The American leg of the News tour does not have a readily available, complete concert bootleg with very good sound (New York is typically missing some songs for the average fan).
Unfortunately, I will only be able to hear (and see) Houston '77 one more time at the last Breakthru convention in Cleveland. I look forward to hearing the nearly unique versions of Liar and Keep Yourself Alive for what might be my last reasonable opportunity to hear these versions.
I do not have the time to become a trader. I prefer to "work smarter, not harder" by using the hub, rather than put blood sweat and tears into trading. I do not consider myself a leech as I leave my computer on usually seven days a week (even if I am not downloading).
I would be willing to pay $50 (the most I ever paid for an audio bootleg) for the Houston '77 audio, but I know selling concerts is considered immoral and crass by the Queen trading community.
