Well done, Tatter. This is definitely one that should be out there in the best quality possible!

Andy, you're going to LOVE this version. As for your "Paris Theatre 73", I doubt that's genuine, because anything previously labeled with that date was actually other common 73 shows like Golders Green, Oxford, and maybe Birmingham too. But hey, I'd love to be proven wrong on this one. Give it a try!

This is unbelievable! It's like FLAC-heaven! Thanks so much for all the effort you've put in to share these shows. I think you may well inspire others to share - we'll just pray for a release from the curse of the mp3...

Okay, I'll add to the argument: I've already had a very good mp3 version of he concert and now I could compare it to the FLAC version. Yes, it's there, the difference. Hard to describe, but definitely there. You can hear it when you concentrate on the quiet parts like the cymbals. They sound much smoother and less distorted. Not necessarily crispier or lighter. But simply better. And there's an overall "artificial", metallic sound in the mp3 version, and it sounds slightly narrower.

But: I had to listen closely and I had to swap discs a few time to hear the difference.

However, thank you for the improvement!

There's a much easier way to compare...

Rip the same 10 seconds of both versions to WAV, and compare them in a wave editor using headphones.

How's that easier when you ride in a car ;-) ???

Seriously, I did my comparison in the place where I hear Queen mostly – in my car. And even there the difference could be heard.

If you play them on a 10.000 Euro/$ stereo at home I understand that mp3s can be bothering. For cars, iPods or computer speakers at work they're more than okay – my opinion.

But that's not the issue, I know. It's about preserving the quality, and there is no other way than keeping it lossless. I won't convert and share any of the concerts in mp3, in fact I will delete the files after burning them to cd. There's a good thing running at the moment at QZ, I wouldn't want to stop it.

Bye,
Nummer2

If you intend to trade/share or in any way distribute the recording in the future, I recomend you keep the original FLAC files.

Have to absolutely say how AMAZING this version is. The other times I've downloaded this, the quality - while still quite good - hasn't been seamless between tracks...but this version TOTALLY blows the others out of the water!!

Bravo to _Tatterdamilion_ for offering it up for download. THANK YOU!!!

GREAT SOUND!!!

What's the story with the last 2 tracks tho...where did they come from ? The 'Doing All Right' simply sounds like some sort of edit of the album version...haven't listened to the version of 'Ogre Battle' yet tho.
