1 CD

Label: Ultimate Sound  US 46 
Country: I guess European cd.
Released: ca. January 2002
Recorded: Rainbow Theatre, London November 20th. 1974. Part might be from the  day before (audio).
And De Lane Lea studio, London autumn 1971. 
Sound: Excellent soundboard recordings, video say's mono.
Comments: As far as I know, this recording are from November the 20th. 1974. Sounds like it's a bit overdubbed in parts of the vocal lines.
Nice cd, but already well known on other bootleg cd's. Queen also played at Rainbow the 19th. The info I have, is that both concert was recorded, for a possible live album. And one was filmed. But, there wasn't released anything at that time. Around a half hour film was made out to cinemas, to use as a pre-film for the Led Zeppelin cinema movie 'The Song Remains The Same'.
The video film might including audio parts from the first date. Mixing, but I can't confirm this. It's must have been quit expensive to hire a film team to film 2 concerts at that time, so I find it un-realistic that both date was filmed, even some stories say so.
You can find this concert out on many bootleg DVD's. Officially released on a VHS video, to be included in the 1992 worldwide mail-order Queen box called "Box of Trix". 
Finally, It might be true that both date was filmed, but I just find it a bit difficult to believe.
Roots: Rainbow concert, from 'Box of Trix' video. Demo recordings, from 'In The Beginning' (MIKO) boot cd.
Time: 78:26
