I know, duh, everyone has a billion copies of that song, but I'm wondering if someone with the competence and software to do so could do either of the following:
Take a soundboard recording of the song as it was performed live, like Wembley, Budapest, or whatnot, and remove the crowd noise.
Or, take the original song and remove the acapella intro and (this is the tricky part) Freddie's vocal over the opening few notes of the piano--some of "to me" is on top of them.
In case you can't figure it out already, I'm trying to find a copy of the concert mix of the song minus crowd noise for my Queen setlist. Call me a blasphemer, but the piano is so much more powerful as an opening than the acapella. I've made a file already, but it sounds like crap, as I took the piano intro from the Greatest Karaoke Hits CD and then just put the rest of the song from the opening line of the ballad in from the original file. Problem? The GKH version is dropped an octave lower, so it basically sounds like crap.
Thanks in advance for anyone who has or can make a file, or for any advice they give. If this has already been released on a CD somewhere, let me know, and I will buy it.
