I have listened to this CD prob. 100 times already, and I even turn the treble up, the sound up.

I can understand most of what Freddie says right before his Aretha Franklin singalong with the audience on Live On Fire at MK, but not all.

This is what I can understand and I'll put in dots where I can't understand.

"I feel positively..." Then you hear either Freddie or Brian's guitar ad lib like a cat meowing.

Then Freddie starts soul singing with the audience and says ".....something or other...you all sing like Aretha Franklin."

What is he saying in both parts word for word?

No, he says a little something else or at least it sure sounds like it as well.

Also what does Freddie say at the end of "I feel positively..."?

...then you hear like I said I can't tell if it's Freddie or Brian's guitar meowing like a cat?

Being from the USA I am still learning British speak. What does knackered mean as I have never heard that word?

This is Such a cool website! Thanks. I was reading alot of Freddie's improvised chats with the audience, and things that have been edited out on the CD's too!

Sure those aren't YOUR words idiot. Must we again endure another homophobe who in this case is also a racist/mysoginist?

Why don't you join Nazi's Anonymous.

Good thing Freddie told Aretha afterwords. I guess she forgave Freddie, as she is now paying for the maintenance of Mary's house.
