This gig kicks ass! I liked the WWRY/Races Intro introduction to the shows on the NOTW tour. This show had many highlights which include the fast WWRY, the short Brighton Rock, Get Down Make Love, Liar(where Brian breaks a string), Love of My Life, My Melancholy Blues(which Brian I think used for a pee break or drink break), Freddie's Vocal Solo, Brian's Guitar Solo(one of his best and I liked the riff he did without the delays a few minutes into the solo and the solo was OVER 10 minutes), We Will Rock You(slow with ALL FOUR guys(including John) singing the WE WILL WE WILL ROCK YOU part(listen close and you can hear John), We Are the Champions and Jailhouse Rock. The rest of the show kicked ass and for those who can't hear John sing Somebody to Love he is on this version as well as he is singing the first melody Freddie sang as everyone else went HIGHER and HIGHER. Bohemian Rhapsody had a prob with opera section as one line was missing because the sound engineer forgot to mix the vocal.

Right. Seems as you're working in Queen's PR office and your task is to sell records with this gig... :)

No Spread Your Wings or It's Late. That killed most of the magic to me.

Spread Your Wings was only occasionally performed on the US part of tour. It's Late was done a few times in the US. Spread Your Wings and It's Late was added to the set in 1978 for the European leg of the NOTW tour.

I agree,

Great those dutch guys uploaded it.


After someone else uploaded it first ...

Besides, The Hero deserves most of the credit for convincing the other dutch guys to share it. however, the other 3 dutch guys spent the previous month taunting and teasing about sharing it.

After someone else shared it, the dutch boys hastily created a wma version in order to save face.

Hey look! Discussion regarding the content of an upload. Perhaps we're turning a corner here! ;-) Heard this one for the first time in my car on the way to work. It was like being in a time warp back to 1977. I remembered Freddie's voice as being "good" and when I heard this it drove home just HOW good. If memory serves, I saw them a couple of nights after the Houston gig, in San Diego. Wow! Un-freakin'-believable. What an amazing band.

The problem is, if they had it, they would have most likely shared it by now. Right?
