Just some things I noticed about the great album of Queen live a the beeb, and hoping you lot might answer some questions:

1) Who does the vocals on the last verse of Doin' Alright

2) What does the guy say in the middle of Modern Times Rock n' Roll

3) I dont know about any one elses's on the B side of the vinyl on the non-recored bit near the label, there are some hand written inscriptions, of BOJLP001 (scribble) B-1, CTS and May. (or could be max.) and an asterix. What do these mean?

Not 100% sure, but I think it's Roger, sounding uncharacteristically low.

No idea. Been wondering that myself, actually.

BOJ = Band of Joy - the record label that released Beeb.
LP = Long Play record.
001 = The first release by this label.

Not sure about the rest.

Hope that helps,

Roger sings the last verse of 'Doing All Right', and the line in 'Modern Times' is "It's not that I'm bright, just happy-go-lucky". Not sure who sings it; I think it's Roger.

I think it´s Tim Staffel who sings the last part of "Doin Allright".
The voice is very similar to that on the version of "Doing Allright" released on the Japanese Vinyl "Gettin' Smile". Roger´s voice sounds more rough, I think!

Why would Tim Staffell be present at one of Queen's BBC sessions when they likely hadn't talked to each other since Smile broke up?

It's Roger, I assure you.

roger has a much harsher voice, and when he finishes singing before he takes a breath it goes slighly up, you know what i mean, and its not there for the doin' allright. Perhaps they put in some from the track they recorded for ghost of a smile album. anyway what about the inscription ,does anyone else have it (I noticed the same thing is written on both sides)

Only when he makes it sound like that by straining.

and when he finishes singing before he takes a breath it goes slighly up, you know what i mean, and its not there for the doin' allright.


He only occasionally does that.

Perhaps they put in some from the track they recorded for ghost of a smile album.


There were no recordings for the "Ghost Of A Smile " album, that was a remastered release of the studio-work SMILE recorded, which was later released on the compilation Gettin' Smile. There was never an album, so they would/could not have used it.

anyway what about the inscription ,does anyone else have it (I noticed the same thing is written on both sides)


That would be the matrix-numbers, so yes, everyone who has the vinyl has it.

Mate, everyone who isn't an idiot told you it's Roger.

"It's not that I'm bright..." could be an engineer, producer, teaboy, pre-existing recording on the tape (like on WWRY), but if it's a member of the band, my money's on Roger. He seems the most likely to be pulling off accents.

matrix no -

BOJLP001 A-1 * MB MAX
BOJLP#001 B-1 * CTS MAX

# is actually a scribble - there's no backspace option when you're carving a matrix number...

No idea what the initials are, but MAX is probably the cutter (for more info on cutters, google "another porky prime cut", you should find the best known cutter)
