Queen
Chicago, IL, USA
Chicago Stadium
December 7, 1978

Lineage: AUD > Master (Technics RS-646DS) > WAV > CDR (2) > WAV > GoldWave (edits smoothed out) > FLAC frontend level 8

I received this recording directly from the taper himself, so it simply can't get any better than this! It's a truly excellent recording. Like the Chicago 80 show, I can't see why anyone would want to distribute anything else from this date, as this version renders all the others obsolete. It is my goal that this share accomplishes exactly that.

Since 90 minute tapes were used, there are the expected slight cuts: during the Don't Stop Me Now segment, after Fat Bottomed Girls, and during We Are The Champions. GSTQ cuts out early as well. Freddie is a bit off on this night, but the quality still makes this one essential. Enjoy!

Disc 1:

1. We Will Rock You (fast)
2. Let Me Entertain You
3. Somebody To Love
4. If You Can't Beat Them
5. Death On Two Legs
6. Killer Queen
7. Bicycle Race
8. I'm In Love With My Car
9. Get Down Make Love
10. You're My Best Friend
11. Now I'm Here
12. Don't Stop Me Now (segment, cuts out)

Disc 2:

1. Spread Your Wings
2. Dreamers Ball
3. Love Of My Life
4. '39
5. It's Late
6. Brighton Rock
7. Fat Bottomed Girls
8. Keep Yourself Alive
9. Bohemian Rhapsody
10. Tie Your Mother Down
11. Sheer Heart Attack
12. We Will Rock You
13. We Are The Champions
14. 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.

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.

Here are all eight parts:

Thank you for another great show! I'm so busy with updating all my mp3 shows, that I don't have time left for my work.

"My pleasure! What would you like next?"

If you ask a question like that, you get an answer: What about Frankfurt 1980? It's one of my top 5 gigs and I have it in a VG mp3 version, that's not satisfying at all. I've heard there's a better version available. Do you accidentally have that?

Frankfurt 80 is a frustrating one to think about at the moment. I have a version on cd in great quality, missing SHA and GSTQ, but in mono sound. I also have the "Imagine" bootleg on the Gypsy Eye label which is complete (the gaps are filled in with an alternate source), in stereo, and with better bass - but it's full of digital clicks, and the balance inverts a hundred times at least, for a split second each time, accompanied with harsh digital clicks. Listening in headphones is incredibly annoying. Some bootleg labels tend to destroy their recordings on purpose for the public, and Gypsy Eye has done it with most of their releases.

I would share the incomplete mono one, but it wouldn't be a safisfying share, simply because I know I could do better with this show. Maybe one day I'll have the patience to fix up the Gypsy Eye version. But for now, I'd like to leave this one alone, unless someone has a low generation tape copy in stereo they could share.

They're coming! It's only 8 parts actually, and one more to go.

Osaka 76... there's a 2pm and a 6pm show, both of which were recorded and sound great. Ok, I'll share the 2pm show, because the screaming girls aren't nearly as close-by on this recording as the 6pm show, and most Japanese recordings. It's first generation from the old LP, so it's probably the best version. I'll work on it a bit, because there are definitely some ticks from the LP that could be fixed.

They're the BBC '77 versions again, with the fake audience noise on top.

Glad you're all enjoying the Chicago shows. Osaka '76 2pm show is next.
