WOW!!!!

I'm finally listening to this concert all the way through. DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This may end up being my favorite. Anyone who doesn't have this one needs to get it. Damn good sound quality compared with most others, and CRAZY live performances.

If You Can't Beat Them Join Them is wonderful! Best versions I have heard yet of Death on 2 legs, Get Down Make Love, Mustapha, I'm in love with my car...

They were in a zone that night.

It's definitely my fave show ever, narrowly beating out Chicago '80. My all time favorite version of both WWRY (fast) and Now I'm Here...Great early versions of Crazy Little Thing and Save Me.

Oh, yes! It's definitely one of their great concerts. It's always one of my top five fav. ones as well. Freddie's voice is stunning and the entire band's vibes are fantastic. And besides, I like its warm rapport between Freddie and the audience.

Oh yes!! Hammersmith Odeon is surely one of their best performance!! I've always loved Queen in the Seventies....Crazy little thing with Freddie joking with the audience is absolutely amazing!! It's a pity that I can't find a complete video version!!

To me... the most powerful performance of "IILWMC" I've EVER heard =)

I like it. I like Houston a little better though. I like the part in Houtson where it sounds like Roger lossed control of his stick :-P


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?
