FROM INTERNET
Precious "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" North American leg masterpiece live album. It is the highest peak master who admits mania as well.
The work included in this work is "College Park Concert February 4, 1977". Its masterpiece audience recording. First of all, from the position of the show as usual. Since 1977 it is also a period when two world tours are covered, so let's organize it in batches.

1977
"A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR"
January 13 - March 18: North America # 1 (40 shows)
May 8 - June 7: Europe # 1 (19 performances)

"October 28" NEWS OF THE WORLD "Release"
"NEWS OF THE WORLD TOUR"
November 11 - December 22: North America # 2 (26 performances)
1978
April 12 - May 13: European # 2 (20 performances)

This is an overview of 1977. This work is also "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" early in the sixteenth performance of "North America # 1". The other day, I introduced a valuable stereo sound board album "RICHFIELD 1977 (Uxbridge 957)" from the same "North America # 1", but the college park performance of this work was a concert that two weeks later.
This work which recorded such a show is really powerful and stout.
Like the other day "RICHFIELD 1977", the overseas Coremania "Lucifer Burns" was released by the master, it is an audience recording that inhaled the raw cheers, but the performance sound that goes through it is extremely on. I can not feel the distance feeling, the powerful lock approaches guyguy and I can feel QUEEN right before my eyes. In the audience heavy bass that tends to be weak is also a heavy response. Sometimes, there is a studio live which burned applause nearly by television broadcasts, but it is a type close to that. Actually it's a bit of a dungo recording, but because the details are sharp, the performance of the four people is clearly felt, and even a sense of lump can be felt in a powerful direction.

That sound exquisitely becomes this show. For British bands, we will start tours from all over the US to conquer, ensemble will get through each performance and the enthusiasm will also increase. This work is the 16th performances of it, and you can enjoy the full power driving which the engine warmed up. Also, this "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" has become a great number of songs such as "Somebody to Love" and has started full playing "Brighton Rock" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" as well. Freddie has also entered a solid period from the growth period, and the set and the performance are really colorful. It is not merely youthful, but it is starting to drift to dignity. It is a live album that the momentum of the beginning of the tour bounces out from the speaker.
'39 'that such momentum will overflow and overflow unexpectedly. Freddie forgets the lyrics and collapses without matching Roger's chorus and guitar. Of course, it also recovers instantly. It is a show that makes the band experience feeling even around the time that the audience rebuilds with the naturalness not noticed by the audience.

Like the other day "RICHFIELD 1977" as well as "In The Lap Of The Gods ... Revisited" it is unfortunate that recording is unavailable, but this work is a powerful name recording that is on as powerful as the sound board. It is a masterpiece live album that can experience the fresh "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" with its sound. Please enjoy it on this occasion by all means.
