Okay everyone, let's continue flooding the announce section with FLAC shares. Here's my first one:

Queen
Vienna, Austria
Stadhalle
May 2nd, 1978

This is the definitive version of a great Queen concert from the News Of The World tour.

Lineage: AUD > Master > Cassette (2) > WAV > CDR(x) > EAC > WAV > FLAC (Flac Frontend level 8)

The person who recorded this show lost his master tape in a flood, and lucky for us he had backed it up. He refused to copy his first generation tape to CDR, but he didn't mind copying it to another tape, which was then burned to CDR, and what we have here. This recording is a major upgrade, much better than the "Last European News" bootleg on the Gypsy Eye label. They manage to mutilate almost anything that comes their way before they release it. Their version was very tinny and hissy, and they omitted Keep Yourself Alive for good measure. But this second generation copy is as clean as it will get, and I'd give it a VG+ rating. Nice, stable sound. Similar setlist to the Houston 77 concert on the previous leg of the tour:

Disc 1:

1. We Will Rock You slow/fast
2. Brighton Rock
3. Somebody To Love
4. Death On Two Legs
5. Killer Queen
6. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy
7. I'm In Love With My Car
8. Get Down Make Love
9. The Millionaire Waltz
10. You're My Best Friend
11. Spread Your Wings
12. It's Late
13. Now I'm Here
14. Love Of My Life
15. '39
16. My Melancholy Blues

Disc 2:

1. White Man
2. The Prophet's Song / Guitar Solo / The Prophet's Song (Reprise)
3. Stone Cold Crazy
4. Bohemian Rhapsody
5. Keep Yourself Alive
6. Tie Your Mother Down
7. We Will Rock You
8. We Are The Champions
9. Sheer Heart Attack
10. Jailhouse Rock
11. God Save The Queen

DO NOT CONVERT THIS RECORDING TO MP3/WMA/OGG or any other lossy format, unless it's for your OWN use, and nobody else's. If you want an mp3 recording of this show, then find an older share of an inferior version. The quality of this version must be maintained. If I discover that this version was converted to a lossy format, then I will NEVER share a thing here again.

Here are all 9 parts:

http://rapidshare.de/files/35621636/Queen_78-05-02_Vienna_2nd_gen_flac_e.zip.html
http://rapidshare.de/files/35628486/Queen_78-05-02_Vienna_2nd_gen_flac_f.zip.html
http://rapidshare.de/files/35664395/Queen_78-05-02_Vienna_2nd_gen_flac_g.zip.html
http://rapidshare.de/files/35667355/Queen_78-05-02_Vienna_2nd_gen_flac_h.zip.html
http://rapidshare.de/files/35667515/Queen_78-05-02_Vienna_2nd_gen_flac_i.zip.html

It goes without question that one should include the lineage information when distributing this recording. This is how people can be certain they are receiving the best version possible.

Enjoy!

Thanks -- btw I wonder if there's any way to "watermark" source audio unobtrusively, so that later if someone did share this date in MP3, you could be sure it wasn't yours?

Come to think of it, if this was possible, the record companies must have done it already. Maybe that's what those FBI warnings on CD have been about lately :)

Watermarking is a good idea, which I thought of. I'm not sure I'll do it for this show, but it will be kept in mind. Either way, I know my recordings well enough that I'll be able to recognize if a later mp3 version was mine or not.

Sir GH,
I just wanted to thank you for keep sharing in FLAC format. It's highly appreciated.

Be certain that as far as I'm concerned, FLACs recordings will never be shared in lossy formats.

Do you know how it`s possible to leave a watermark on a bootleg?
It`s nice to see the lossless sharing have started, and lets hope others will follow!

Excellent post Sir GH.

Maybe now people may start to see what we want to see in a shared concert post.

Not to seem ungrateful, but is it in any way possible to do this as a torrent as well?

Many thanks for your efforts anyway.

If someone doesn't do it before me, I'll torrent this. I have 2 files left to DL (I don't have a Rapidshare account). and I'm leaving for work. so tonight I'll do it.

The easiest way to watermark a bootleg is to delete a small part of it, or do a fade out/in somewhere. That's what Mike Millard did with the Zeppelin and Floyd shows he recorded, just so he could be sure if later versions originated from his.

But no, I won't do something like that. I didn't record the shows, so it's not my place to do that. I'll just keep my eyes open, and I'm sure I'll be able to tell if a later version of the show came from mine.

I know you're not being ungrateful. I've read your posts, and I know you know your stuff. No need to precede your questions with a disclaimer of some kind. :)

Can someone tell me where to find a version of FLAC Frontend that has the fingerprinting option? Mine doesn't have it. My next share will be the Chicago 80 master, so I'll give bit-torrent a try.
