Hello guys back after a hiatus and a well deserved holiday i recently purchased this c.d from a record fair entitled "The mercury is rising" and it features these songs:

Procession/father to son
ogre battle
son and daughter
keep yourself alive
the seven seas of rhye
modern times rock n roll
liar * all billed for 14.6.74 cleveland arena

Flick of the wrist
Medley killer queen/the march of the black queen/bring back leroy brown
Stone cold crazy ** billed as s.monica civic audiotorium 22.3.75

and finally

Somebody to love
39
you take my breath away
Bohemian rhapsody
Medley
Hey big spender/jailhouse rock/saturday night.../be bop a lula *** as seattle 13.3.77

Now i bet your wondering what the hell is this well i was wondering if anyone else has this cd and if they can verify the actual concerts to the date please.

Apart from that it's a pretty good compilation of songs and i wonder if it's rare or readily availiable.

okay here goes - i think i've got this sorted for you (anyone who knows for sure please confirm one way or the other) - i too have this cd - bought it at a cd fair about a dozen or more years ago

the section marked Cleveland 14:6:74 was in fact the Rainbow, london 31:3:74....i got a feeling that the cleveland gig was the part of the US tour that got cancelled due to Brian being ill with hepatitus - and so this gig never existed.

the second part (marked *) is a very severely edited santa monica - as it says on the sleeve - but the editing is all over the place removing tracks that would have fitted better together

and the last part (marked **) is the section of seattle arena 13:3:77 that was originally released as the bootleg "duck soup"

hope this helps

Thanks guys for your replies i thought the first one sounded like rainbow march 74 because i have that somewhere and they are near enough the same, and i also checked queen concerts.com and got info there also.

Once again thanks guys.

Dammit!
With the topic name, I thought all my "Freddie Is Alive" conspiracies were true.
He is...I swear it...
