Here is a torrent of Sir Bob's wondrous compilation (thanks again for all the work you put into it and for sharing it!). Here is the original link, with salient info from that post :

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q_FORUM_ID=4&Q_FORUM_NAME=Sharing+The+Music+-+Announce&TOPIC_SUBJECT=ANNOUNCE%3a+London+10-6-77+FLAC+-+the+definitive+version&Q=942157&page=1

This is a compilation of two copies of the same audience tape of the famous We Are The Champions video shoot and short concert, both lossless - one being "Champions Shoot" on the Wardour label, and the other being a much higher generation tape. Much of the WATC video shoot is missing on the Wardour version, so I spliced in all the missing parts from the inferior version. Still, two parts are missing: The initial playing of WATC (before they started filming) cuts out after a few seconds, and the third video take of the song is missing as well. The Wardour version's pitch was 1/3 of a semitone too fast, so I adjusted it to make the two versions run at the same speed. Here's the track listing:
1. Bob Harris' speech, first listen to WATC (cut)
2. Queen introduction, WATC video shoot 1
3. WATC video shoot 2
4. Speech before WATC video shoot 3 (cut at 0:44), WATC video shoot 4
5. Tie Your Mother Down
6. Keep Yourself Alive
7. Somebody To Love
8. White Man
9. The Prophet's Song
10. Liar
11. Bohemian Rhapsody (until end of guitar solo)
12. Now I'm Here
13. Jailhouse Rock
14. See What A Fool I've Been
A couple of great moments: I love what happens after the first WATC shoot. Brian says, "we'll have to try this a couple more times, okay?" And then an audience member, with plenty of excitement in his voice, says "I don't care!"
Another great moment: After Bob Harris reveals that take 3 will be done with the cameras on the audience, and without the band on stage, someone else in the audience says, "It's not gonna be the same without them!"
Luckily, the entire concert is from the higher quality version, and it's really worth listening to in this quality. Check out the loose and experimental version of White Man / The Prophet's Song - very interesting! It sounds much more like the middle section of Get Down Make Love, because it's Brian's guitar that has the harmonization effects, not Freddie's voice (which I really prefer, actually!). This is probably the first time Brian used the e-bow on stage. The whole band sounds great, and are clearly happy to give the fan club members a great set. Also worth noting is that this is undoubtedly the greatest version of See What A Fool I've Been. Freddie's voice is so much more accomplished in this version. He sings it so passionately and aggressively. It's amazing to hear how much his voice grew in a year and a half since they had last played the song. This would turn out to be the final performance of the song. Killer version of Liar here as well.
Do NOT convert this recording to mp3 or any other lossy format, unless it's for your own use. This recording is the one that should spread because it's most complete, lossless, and the best quality.

Can you tell us about the event, from your perspective as an audience member?

Did you take those pictures yourself? Those are the same pics I included in the last zip file (although I touched up the Freddie pic a bit).

Hi.

Yes they are my pictures ive got 2 more but they are not very good.The best one was the one of Freddie.( i took them on a really shit camera with no flash)

What a great day that was for me and my mates.I was 15 at the time.I remember getting the train to london 5 in the morning,getting to the druary lane about 8 then queueing for what seemed like hours. we were 5th or 6th from the front of the queue.About 5ish they let us in,we recieved our WATC single then rush into the theatre.
You can here from the recording what went on that day,the thing was we didnt expect the impromptu gig So when they said they were going to come back on and do it us we went bonkers.
To this day it remains one the best if not the best experience gig wise that ive ever had....FANTASTIC


Thankyou....Thankyou and goodevening everybody.

Great story, Paul! I never was sure if the audience knew Queen planned to play the set, but now I do know! Thanks for that.

I can't get the artwork to load from giginjapan, and bootlegzone doesn't have the actual artwork - can anybody upload the art here or tell me where I can find it?

Of course it doesn't match my track listing, but it's nice art, nonetheless. Hope you like.
