The "April 25, 1979: Nippon Budokan" performance is included in this work. It is the first public master in the same sound recording house as the 1985 treasure "AT LAST BUDOKAN", and its quality is excellent. The sense of stability and the almost uninterrupted long length are wonderful. As a matter of fact, "DREAMER'S BALL" was to update the sound is the best ever, but the recording person was repeatedly paused between songs with the tape remaining in mind.
Therefore, the beginning of the song "You're My Best Friend", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Sheer Heart Attack" and "We Will Rock You" is missing, so even if you care about it, the last "God Save The Queen" is not kept It is However, this new recording has an almost uninterrupted sound with a great sound. Still there is a recording omission after the final performance of "Let Me Entertain You" and "Somebody To Love", but the lack of performance is only the beginning of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by the tape change.

You can be immersed in the performance and singing voice without being harassed. Speaking of being immersed, the point is also less audience noise. A yellow hoarse voice swirls at the site of Nippon Budokan, but it is a balance that extends far from it. Speaking of an imminent sound, I can only hear some clapping. Seamless recording situation and balance to be able to concentrate on performance / singing voice, and lush sound only because the original master. Because these three things together, it was possible to complement the valuable sound board completely.

The full show to taste with such a sound is really impressive. It is famous that Freddie of this day is in a slump, and it is not good either to put out NG on the broadcast though he shot a pro shot so much. However, the enthusiasm comes from spreading the voice that does not come out desperately.
Performance to try to cover the voice is left even in the professional shot, but the temperature of the Nippon Budokan, which heats up with that appearance, can be felt realistically. And you can experience the show almost (full) with a seamless sound.
In terms of quality, it is not as good as a sound board, but there is a taste of tastelessness without making any changes to this work.

A masterpiece audience recording of the world's first appearance that enabled the miracle to pull the short length sound board to the complete form. It is a great live album that combines the longest length and the sound quality, and updates the highest peak ever.
