What is imbued in this work is "May 31, 1977 Glasgow Performance". It is the new excavation audience recording.
1977 is the time when two tours "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" and "NEWS OF THE WORLD TOUR" coexist, but this work is the former live album. In order to imagine the situation, let's confirm the position of the show from the schedule at that time.

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

"News of the World Tour" released on October 28th
        "NEWS OF THE WORLD TOUR"
 ・ November 11th-December 22nd: North America # 2 (26 performances)

1978 ・ April 12th-May 13th: Europe # 2 (20 performances)

This is the overall picture of the two tours. Speaking of 1977, Earl's Court pro shots are famous, but this work is also the 15th performance of "Europe # 1" which is the same as the historical stage. It was the day before "LIVERPOOL 1977" released this week.

This work recorded at such a show is a vintage audience with excellent master freshness. Even if you make a mistake, it is not a type that can be compared with the sound board, and you can not deny the slightly thick sound and the sense of distance.
However, if it is covered with noise or sloppy, it is completely different. There are almost no dubbing marks or tape deterioration, and the on-site feeling of warm air is outstanding. Moreover, this work is the highest peak board that brushed up such a first appearance master with meticulous mastering. Of course, instead of earning unreasonable sound pressure, we adjusted the balance of each range and pursued the possibility of the original sound. It's not a dull material, but a music album that's easy to listen to.

The real sound is drawn at the precious "A DAY AT THE RACES TOUR" site. Unfortunately, the recording itself is incompletely recorded in about an hour, but it is still a rush of masterpieces that makes Freddie look great. Let's organize the contents here.
・ Queen II: Ogre Battle / White Queen (As It Began)
・ Sheer Heart Attack: Killer Queen / Bring Back That Leroy Brown / Brighton Rock
・ A Night at the Opera: You're My Best Friend / Death On Two Legs / Sweet Lady (★) / '39
・ A day at the races: Tie Your Mother Down / Somebody To Love / Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy / The Millionaire Waltz

* Note: No song. And it looks like this. In fact, not only is there no end to the show, but there are also tape change cuts for "The Millionaire Waltz" and "You're My Best Friend." What a pity! For this reason, it became a gift board, but the recorded one hour is a blissful show. Above all, I'm glad that Freddie is in great shape.
As a matter of fact, the first day of Glasgow (May 30), which is the day before this work, and the Liverpool 2 performances after this work are all known as masterpieces. The condition is incomparable to the famous Earl's Court, and if I had made a live album with this 4 consecutive performances of Glasgow & Liverpool, it would have been QUEEN's masterpiece ... Such a dense The show is unfolding.

Together with the shocking "LIVERPOOL 1974" and "LIVERPOOL 1977", this is a masterpiece that makes up the first live album trilogy. It's a pity that the recording is incomplete, but the content was Tokuno and it was a wonderful performance. There may be a moving show that is still unknown ... A surprising new excavation that makes you feel even such a premonition.
