I think the Chicago shows from 1978 and 1980. Seattle 1977 is a nice one too.

Chicago 1980 disappoints me every time I listen to it. In terms of audio quality, yes, it's incredibly good. In terms of audience participation, it's a letdown. Freddie waits *forever* to sing the final line of Bohemian Rhapsody--he was practically begging the crowd to take it, something he almost never did at American shows, and almost no one does before he gives up and sings it himself. Really a disappointing moment, but the rest of the show is top-notch.

Announce section, why?

Anyway, Drammen is the choice. Superb and balanced sound. There was a topic some time ago in the serious section i think. Loads of bootlegs was rated there, so check that one out. Loads of nice sounding bootlegs out there.

I love the sound of the 1979 Kampuchea concert. Audience and music are perfectly balanced.

London 8.12.1980 is great, too.

Milan 1984 and Sydney 1985 are quite good as well, if I remember correctly.

Argentina is the best audience recording!! The Argentinians sing ALL the songs, not just Bohemian Rhapsody or We Will Rock You ...you can clearly hear that they sing songs like Dragon Attack, Need your loving tonight, Save Me, Fat Bottomed Girls, etc ...and they JUMP and JUMP ...they are very passionates with QUEEN ...hope they can come back ...

The question is about recording quality, not jumps, screams, etc...

For me japanese recordings are the best.

I think Immigrant Magic, Berlin 1986 is the best out there. But that's just my two cents.

And there's a great 74 Boot from the States which also sounds fabulous and has a great set! I think it was Milwaukee...

I love Mannheim 1986 but that's from radio broadcast so it doesn't count. The Chicago boots are great too.

My five favs:

» Chicago Stadium, USA - December 8th 1978
» Horizon, Rosemont, Chicago, USA - September 19th 1980
» Festival Hall, Osaka, Japan - April 19th & 20th 1979
» Pacific Coliseum, Vancouver BC, Canada - December 14th 1978
» Broendby Hall, Copenhagen, Denmark - May 12th 1977 ---> Shame it's incomplete.

Osaka 5-15-85 is worth mentioning - particularly "The Last Concert In Japan" on the Masterport label. This new source came out a few years ago, and it's dynamite quality.
