Bohardy: You are correct, I did not need to hear it to know that - and perhaps I was re-stating the obvious.

What I was trying to point out is - wouldn't it be NICE to hear the "unmixed version" of "Brighton Rock" in a more primitive, raw, stand-alone version which would hopefully echo a more live "feel".

I know that the safety masters have been kept - so there is no way that they could be seperated back into different "bits" from that tape (as a safety master is a copy of the finally mixed album).

However, if all the original tapes still survived - then this task would not be too difficult, but as this is not the case, then I suppose that by hearing this track - I can at least now imagine how "Brigton Rock" may have sounded without it.

(For me with no musical talent or imagination that is a great deal because those "whip cracks" last for a while well past just the opening bit - and the bit employed by Queen is much longer than I originally thought)".

I hope that makes some kind of sense.
