This is my first torrent. I'm glad I can give something back at last. YV told me someone had requested it so here it goes.

This is the original version of Let Me Live as it appears in my supposedly withdrawn Made In Heaven CD that was previously available only as an MP3 (uploaded by me, some years ago). There was another older MP3 but the source was a promo cassette from the USA, I believe. This was ripped to WAV using Nero and then encoded into FLAC with Frontend.

This was just a promo copy and not available. I'm not sure if it counts as official but I've been told it doesn't. I should be seeding for a while. If I go down I'll go back up some hours later till more users have it.

See ya...

Wiley

You wonderful person, you! I love this song and have loved this version ever since you posted that MP3. If there's anything I can do for you, name it. I'll try my best to help you out in the future.

Wow, what an upload. FLAC!!

Peace,
Adam.

Thank you!!! Does this happen to be the same version someone posted a couple weeks ago, which they called the "alternate" version?

Hehehe :). You don't have to do anything for me Adam. I didn't pay for that CD (I got it as a gift, but I did pay for another copy of MIH before that) so it costs me nothing to make it available.

I've had it for some years now, at least 6 or 7 and I haven't heard of someone else having it aswell. I emailed the fan club back in 1999 and Jacky told me "hmmm, yeah, you could say it's rare, right" but didn't sound too convincing, like JSS' "nice but nothing special" now popular quote, hehe :). Then I uploaded it in MP3 (no-one believed I had it, btw) and suddenly everybody wanted a higher bitrate version. I think I uploaded a 128 and a 192 (or 256? don't remember) version of the MP3. FLAC was not known at that time (at least, not by me) and actually I could not understand why would somebody want a larger file for a song which "sounded" the same to me. Now I understand the difference and I prefer FLAC.

I'm not too greedy or anything. I wish I had more material but I'm not obsessed with it (well, maybe every couple of months or so). I don't even have Houston, which I've heard it should be leaking somewhere in the near future but I'm sure this has been said before. Maybe I could have made a trade with this CD (or even the song, which some people find so interesting) but if I were going to do it, I would have done it by now, so there you go.

I just want to talk about it a bit. Am I the only one who has THIS CD?? On this board, I mean. I know we don't usually discuss much about downloads, but since I uploaded this one and I've had it for some time now, I would like to hear something about it.

I think you are the only one on this board indeed.

I have the withdrawn Mexican CD and the US promo cassette, both of which have that very same version. The Hollywood Records cassette is an advance listening copy of the whole album (including Track 13), so the inclusion of the original version of Let Me Live comes as no surprise. But the reason for that elusive Mexican CD having it was a mistery to me until I learned that the disc itself was manufactured by Capitol USA (the matrix number is typical from their plants: DIDP-099139). Capitol takes special requests from other labels but they need the masters with a lot of time in advance, so the one EMI sent to them still contained that version of Let Me Live.

By the way, this IS official stuff!!! ;-)

oh well.....whatever it is...this is a great version.Thank you!

The only one cd sigle i own from Queen is "Let me Live" why do they put in the cd 3 old queen songs while they could have added this special "soul" version instead?

In fact, that version was withdrawn for copyright reasons, as it was found too similar to Janis Joplin's song Piece Of My Heart.

By the way, Wiley, I am looking for the Mexican pressing of the INNUENDO CD and also for the LIVE AT THE BOWL Mexican CD sampler by Loft Magazine. Can you get hold of these?

I used to have the Innuendo one some years ago. It has de vinyl edits, right?. For about 7 or 8 years being a Queen fan I thought Bijou lasted only for a little over one minute. Really! hehe :).

I haven't seen that version of the CD recently. Just imports. The one I have at the moment I bought it as a discount but it was made in Holland.

I should try to see if they have the mexican one in some other store. I'll get back to you if I see one (I mean, two, of course, hehe :))
