They played it on BBC 6 this morning at 12.15am

You can hear it on the BBC 6 website.

It is exactly the same as the album cut, no new vocal or guitar work, and fades out with the intro of FHLI like on the album.

That said, it is remixed slightly I'm sure, and sounds clearer.

click on listen, and scroll through. Also played are BBC versions of other Queen II stuff.

I don't think so. I think it is exactly the same as the album cut.

No, I think it is ~slightly~ remixed.

Thanks for that. Shame it's only 96kb download.
Anyone record it off-air on digital?

Did they play Nevermore?

From memory only Ogre Battle and White Queen are on there. May be wrong though. I like the way the DJ says it was recorded in 1984. Clueless!

I know many of the people here could put high quality versions up here, but they get a little snotty about it being 'official'. You can tell it has undergone some remixing because little bits of (albeit hard to pick out) guitar amp and string noise are left in, and taken away from the released version, although they are the same performances.

Well. This particular mix has NEVER been officially released, so I don't see why a high quality version couldn't be posted if anyone has one.

But you see, it IS different.

Same performance as album sure, but different panning on the instruments and the ~noises~ left in as I said.

Whether it needs posting in great quality is another matter!

This is a good companion thread to the Buffalo one. MOTBQ BBC is rare, but apparently we all have it!

Unless I'm mistaken, Greg Brooks DID say there WERE some differences in the mix itself.

"In essence, this recording of Black Queen sounds more like a remix of the original version, rather than a new session take"

extract from Record Collector magazine(date not known)

Yes- the same Greg who ahving access to Queen archives and apparently owning the bootleg as well of golders Green still claims in his newly updated book that Queen played Keep Yourself alive, Hangman and Stone Cold Crazy that night... I would really be careful with believing everything Greg says... He gave us many interesting facts over the years (Freedom Train being a queen tack at innuendo session for instance) but also made many mistakes (his book is the best example) and... I sometimes have a feeling taht when he's not sure about something (and he is too proud to admit that)- hge just makes up something. So he wrote BBC version of Black queen is different. In the beforementioned article (I have it) he claims there are vocal ad-libs not present on the album cut. And it's just pure bollocks... Either he's deaf or just wrote something for the sake of it (couldn't come up with anything else, didn't know the band supplied the original mix, just was too lazy to cross- check- just like with the book)...

my point exactly. you wouldn't notice any difference at all... I was (and I'm sure Greg was) listening in great detail.

It seems odd that although it is a version of the album cut, it still goes into FHLI and fades out.

My final guess would be it is taken from a rough mix of the album... so although the segue is inplace, it isn't quite the 'final' mix of the song.

Or maybe it was mixed but not mastered yet? But there are definitely no ad-libs orr anything that we don't know from the album... Nothing was recorded in BBC studio- that's obvious...

yeah.. something like that. The presence of the 'studio noises' on the BBC recording suggest it was remixed and tidied up before release, but following the same studio notes for mixing... so whilst the performances are the same, there are ~differences~ but not too obvious.

No, because it's official material
