hopefully someone can help me with these questions:

* when and where were the tracks recorded

* why did he record them? (for personal amusement or was he approached by loyd webber?)

* what's the quality of the recordings? (studio or in the vein of the first barcelona sessions that was recorded by freestone)

on beyond thanx!

I remember a story back in 1988 (or so.........god, it was such a long time ago) that Freddie was being considered as the absolute first choice to play the lead role - this was after he worked with Sir Tim Rice who was also putting together ideas for Phantom.

I believe JSS identified likely dates / quality issues in one of his threads.
