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.

A similar debate can be started over the seven South African shows in 1984. Aparently a while back someone was selling all 7 for $100 each! Additionally I believe that at least one of these concerts must have been filmed. With the advent of the Internet I think that selling bootleg recordings for monetary gain has become obsolete, but nevertheless these seven concerts need to be liberated. What can we do?

It was not the "Queen trading community" who was playing with the fans' emotions here - just some immature attention seekers.


I do not want any google ads here.

If I understand it good, I am playing with the fans emotions?


Nah, I think you misunderstood. The person who's witholding the South African shows et al is.

I didn't know Milwaukee '76 was rare. I've had the '75 and '76 Milwaukee shows for about 5 years now, as I got them via the taper. They sound pretty good, not great. The same guy taped ABBA on their final American tour. Now in regards to Houston '77 ... We have a problem. That one I only heard about from this site.

Rare concerts such as Houston 77 & Milwaukee 76 can often be heard on 'your' station so please tune in and support as who knows how long we can run for ? Hopefuly for a long time yet but who knows what powers to be don't agree with our community ethos :-(



having difficulty tuning in
says something about an .rdl file download, even when i say yes
it still doesn't do anything
are there any instructions? - should the rdl be saved soemwhere specifically?

what am i f***ing up?
