Review found on the net.
A free concert called “September 18, 1976:
Hyde Park Performance” which is said to have collected 150,000 people
(depending on materials, 200 thousand people). Three set of culmination of
the legendary show with the supreme master appears.
This show is a gift of great success brought by
the night of Opera. Both albums and singles were ranked # 1 in the UK, and
even the readers’ vote of SOUNDS magazine ranked the best album, the best
single and the best band. I shined in Britain’s No. 1 band that was never
pressed or pushed. A great event organized with Richard Branson, who is the
founder of VIRGIN Records, with gratitude for fans who supported their
success. He has already appeared as a main act while he was in production of
his next work “Brilliant Lace”.
This work got the best record of such historical
show. Overseas QUEEN researcher supervises everything from master appraisal
to mastering finish, it is a 3-disc set which was permanently preserved and
pressed with the highest quality ever. First of all, let’s organize the
composition of such a work.
· Disk 1: Soundboard · Album
· Disk 2: Odins / Album
· Disc 3: Pro Shot DVD
highest peak sound board album】
First of all, it is the soundboard album of the
day. This show was scheduled to be fully broadcast on television in 1977,
and all of the show was officially taken. But actually did not realize the
broadcast, only the pro shot video and the sound board sound source leaked.
Its sound board has become a standard since
ancient times, but this work is its highest peak. Although it can not be
said that it is still an official class yet only for outflows, it surpasses
a number of previous episodes. Even if the direct feeling of the class death
is terrible, the sounds of the earlier group were somewhere muffled and
making it boogie. The master of this work has no feeling of boiling, it is
clear to the outline of the sound. The brilliant sound spreading through the
core spreads throughout every corner, and the noise that was scattered in
the past has also been minimal. This quality was realized by a deep study of
a trainee who truly supervised. It is a person who has worked on a
masterpiece of press such as “INVITE YOU TO A NIGHT AT THE BUDOKAN” “THE
ROYAL AMERICAN TOUR 1975”, both of which made me feel deep sound source
knowledge, but this work also Moreover, it is a delicious quality that could
have been achieved because it is a certain eyes of choice.
Besides, this work is not just the best sound.
Actually, it is also the longest live album utilizing another existing sound
source. The highest peak master was a little short before the performance,
the beginning of “Keep Yourself Alive” was also chipped. In this work, the
performance part is expanded with another sound board, and it is
complemented with less than 30 seconds by the audience recording from
between the songs to the beginning of “Keep Yourself Alive”. This work is
also done by the researcher himself. Again, Master’s selection, exquisite
editing is a wonderful finish.
It will be followed by a superb audience
recording. It was digitized with the latest high-end equipment from the
legendary LP boot leg “FREE IN THE PARK (Marc Records ZAP 7960)”. This
original master selection and digitization also by the same researcher as
Disk 1. It is a business that can not be hoped for any further in the
audience on that day.
It is an incomplete version in which 4 songs
“Ogre Battle”, “White Queen (As It Began)”, “Flick Of The Wrist” and “Keep
Yourself Alive” are cut just like LP’s wake, Superb item. Clearness of zero
echoes is wonderful only in the open air, the crisp playing and singing
voice arrives straight. Although it is not exactly like the disc 1 of the
genuine sound board truly, it is not quite satisfactory as far as clearing
is more than its beauty that the legendary feeling of the place. The mood of
the forefront where the new hero QUEEN played and rushed to British pride
was amazing. The scale that is said to be 150,000 and 200,000 is a large
crowd at the level where one of Shinjuku citizens gathers. It loves only
four people, and it is deprived of the music. Just a festive mood of a huge
community, rather than a frenzy of fuss. It is not a big cheer to explode
but chant the chord as it is coming, put it together with a (slightly
strange) rhythm, and give applause. You can completely immerse your whole
body in the spectacle of the space with a free open feeling completely
different from the concerts and festivals of Sogyoso.
Of course, the entertainment performed in front
of such a large crowd is also wonderful. Even for them, it was the first
time for me to see a huge show so far, but Freddie was greatly excited, not
to be afraid of the crowd at full birth of a star. Shouting “Everyone,
Sing!” Draws out the big chorus of “Bohemian Rhapsody” in the big hit, “You
Take My Breath Away” also revives the tremendous treble. You Take My Breath
Away, which pretends to be a brilliant race, a new work not yet seen,
“You’re My Best Friend” played medley before “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Ogre
Battle “” Sweet Lady “” White Queen “” Flick Of The Wrist “” Bring Back That
Leroy Brown “” 39 “… etc. “The Prophet’s Song” in which the echo can not be
heard in the middle part has become a hot topic, but at that time, including
that, you can enjoy plenty of QUEEN that can only be found here.
3: Pro Shot DVD】
Finally, video editing that can witness
the spectacle of such a site with multiple cameras and professional shots.
As mentioned above, the picture of this day was originally shot for
broadcasting, and in fact it is actually used partly by “Somebody To Love”
clips or “MAGIC YEARS VOLUME TWO” DVD. This work is a complete version of
such a pro shot. The time code is also a raw spill master. This leakage pro
shot was also known for poor quality since the VHS era, but this work is the
highest peak version without “QTV” logo. Although it can not be said to be
“Official grade” again, it is a picture beauty which is not comparable with
the preexisting group, the screen with little noise and distortion is
glossy, a fresh coloring at that time. Freddie with long hair with its
visual beauty runs around the stage while wearing herself in white tights.
And the sound. Actually, the original of Disk 1 is the voice of this Pro
Shot Master, and the highest peak of sounds will color the scene of multi
camera. The BBC owner ‘s omnibus master has already been lost, perhaps the
master over this work can not be ever again.
In addition to such a
supreme pro shot, this work also includes three valuable bonus images. The
first is the outtake of the pro shot, the aerial shoot of the scene where
the large crowd gathered and the ocean of the man as far as the eye can see.
As if walking like a hiking, walking through the forest, climbing a tree,
enjoying it freely Concert scenes like plenty of mood. And the stage that
looks small over such a crowd. Unlike the present age there are no huge
screens, and 150,000 people are overwhelmed by the reality that they are
crazy with members of rice grains or less.
The remaining two are outtakes
of live video. “Sweet Lady” which was recorded in 16 mm film and “Tortoise
version” “Keep Yourself Alive”. Especially “Keep Yourself Alive” is
overwhelmingly superb beautiful image quality exceeding even the main part.
From up-and-coming youth bands to British pride. Soundboard board that
can come close to QUEEN who rushed up the stairs of success a couple of
times, the audience board to witness the scene. And the highest-quality
quality version of traditional Pro Shot. It is a 3-pack set that can enjoy
the legendary stage with all kinds of materials. Please enjoy with your
luxurious press set forever and for ever.
