lots of talk lately about various boots - the "must haves" of the queen live world

from what i can gather these must rank highly

1. houston 77 - complete
2. drammen, norway 82
3. g/green 73 - complete version
4. any Sth Africa gig 84
5. milwaukee (was it 75 or 77)
6 liverpool 73

okay - remembering this is in "serious discussion forum" what else would you consider the must haves of the queen bootlegs?

The ones no one knows about
south africa are basically worthless, only rare cuz they are not being traded, but who wants average work shows with Freddie's voice in such bad shape?
Kalamazoo,Michigan forgot what year, I got to hear it, but cannot have it.
Mannhiem complete in Video, same with Leiden 1986.
New Zealand 1985, where they are drunk half the show
Mexico 81 on video, Black and white, I have seen 14 screenshots.
First date in the NOTW tour, in NA with Sleeping on the sidewalk.
That Cinncinati show with Freddie farting on stage


MY GOD spell it write.

Mr X

Here you go again.....

>LA Forum '78
>Not available.

I know for a fact that it is. The source I have is a 2nd generation mono audience recordng from the 4th row John Deacon's side of the stage. Recorded by someone that also booted mant Zep, Who and Greatful Dead shows in the 1970's.

No, I wouldn´t call them worthless. They are at least worth having for the historic importance of the shows. Also I heard that there is a video of one of the gigs, so I would surely like to watch that. But I agree performancewise there are certainly much much better shows that aren´t available yet.

I'd like to see anything from Australia...probably available..lazy too. New Zealand'd be good 'cause if I remember correctly that bloke from Phish comes on stage as well.

Well, what he means is probably Fish (of Marillion), but what he should mean is Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet.

Fish was Mannheim '86

and as far as I know, the New Zealand show never surfaced.

Although I knew a guy about 10-15 years ago who apparently knew someone who had a soundboard copy from that show.

Well could someone tell me - I have the Mannheim gig on double LP. Is it worth anything?

Sorry to be a bit off-topic, but thanks!
