Review from internet
17 1980 performance has been carried out, “The Game” to accompany the fifth day of Europe & UK tour, Germany on 29 November is complete recording of the Essen performance in high-quality audience recording. Entered in 2012 was suddenly it appeared recorded an upgraded version of the same performances sound source. Sound source of this day, and the version of Bohemian Rhapsody and Sheer Heart Attack is missing, but from that we had two kinds of versions that have been almost completely recorded by another master, the former sound quality is far it was said to be good. This board is, as described above, which appeared earlier this year, is a generator youth version of the latter of the full version. The sound quality is, you know if you heard, but top class definitely as the audience recording of the 80-year European tour. The appropriate release of the press CD when it was originally, is a very high-quality sound. Cut Dragon Attack second half of 2:57 to 3: In 16 of Freddie vocal solo part, but this part has been recorded patch from the sound source, which is described as another high-quality sound, there only sound that you hear bad , or excellent this time of the master is how much, I think we are not to understand you. Cut in about are among the songs after Bohemian Rhapsody the show, the sound image is also beginning to end stable, it is a very high-quality master. Performance also I have a thing terrible also climax of the venue, after most of the rust of Tie Your Mother Down, guitar there is trouble to say that turned off, but is the moment, pop out the sound image, such as you have never heard , it makes me stunned those who listen. Freddie tone is pretty good, you can hear the happy singing voice in many places. Is after the middle in the drum and guitar solo will be showing off the Battle Theme ~ The Hero from “Flash”. Distinctive singing sore Freddie of The Hero of the day is also listening stations. The upgraded version of which is one of 1980 Essen representative to sound this year to enjoy the best sound, is one piece of fan must-have.

★ is a review summary of beatleg magazine vol.150 (No. January 2013). In case you’re wondering.

Essen performances of 1980 on November 29. Although this performance is widely available in such as Trent site on the net, it is the first time that is booted reduction in Nishi-Shinjuku neighborhood. Although the audience sound source mentioned in the title of “29. November 1980 Essen Grugahalle” at the time of Queen feature of this magazine vol.135 has been recorded is fundamentally different things, there only is truly bother boot of, it is a major feature that is used is quite good tape. The same source as those that had been used in order to compensate for the missing part in the “29. November 1980 Essen Grugahalle” to have been recorded here, specifically, “Now I’m Here (Reprise)”, “Bohemian Rhapsody “” the thing that has been used in the Sheer Heart Attack “, not only the sound quality difference of the part is Rekizen, is also a sound quality that was clearly superior people of this product with respect to the other part, deserve appreciation many times It has finished in the full content. Track time of the “Dragon Attack” (2:57)? (3:16) is also thing of to have been supplemented with the sound source, but will be able to feel the smooth flow so polite editing. Then, the topic of this performance is being recorded as the premiere “The Hero”, once sang also hear the trial and error of Freddie is a strangely fresh. Therefore, it has become a very high value as a recording.
