Hi Queenzoners

If I recall correctly Brian did a master class for Capitol Radio in the early 80's. It was issued on cassette and was available from the Capitol Radio shop in London for a short while but that's as much as I remember.

Do any of you have a copy of this show and would you be willing to share it here?

Many thanks

Marc

I have a cassette copy of this and would be willing to share it BUT I have absolutely no technical extertise whatsoever. If you can tell me how to convert a cassette to a shareable format in VERY simple language I will gladly to it.

I have it also got it on tape & have converted it to CD. on my Tape unfortunately it cuts out half way through "Love Of My Life" it's how I bought the recording from Capitol Radio. (Is this how everybodys copies are? I don't know?) if this recording is not considered an Official Capitol Radio Recording, I will gladly upload it for you.

Official? Yes? No?

No, Love Of My Life is complete. There is a gap between Acoustic Guitars and Pavane Finale however.

OK guys, will do. Any preference as to which site you would like it uploaded to (Rapidshare, Megaupload etc)?

Megaupload is better for those who don't have a rapidshare account. Thanks again, can't wait to hear the full version of "Love of my Life" especialy since this was Brian's first time he ever performed the song solo :-)

The most simple way to convert from cassette is to take a lead (preferably a stereo one like this http://www.maplin.co.uk/images/300/ck27_2003cat.jpg for instance) from the headphone socket of your tape player and plug it into the mic socket of your soundcard. Thats how I did it when I uploaded this stuff originally. I used Cool Edit (now called Adobe Audition) to capture the audio and to split it into seperate tracks. Unfortunately, I also saved the files in MP3 format - not good for the flac supporters lol.

Hope that bit of info helps a bit
