Hammersmith Odeon, London, England December 26th. 1979.
audience recording from this concert at Hammersmith on Dec. 26th.
I'm not sure if this is a new tape source, but anyway it
looks like a nice release with correct photo on the cover.
I will say this is the ultimate Hammersmith 1979 bootleg.
Some 'sticker' copies comes with a separate dvd with film from the concert. Not
complete, but all what so far has seen daylight on the bootleg
The hole concert was filmed, but so far this concert has
not been officially released.
A one hour 'Queen Special' has been
on television worldwide with live tracks from this concert, and a
raw copy of more tracks has been shown on early Queen
conventions. But as I write above, nothing officially released so
I'm not sure of reason, but
sometimes it has to do with rights and ownership of the film. It
might be other companies who pay the film work, and then own the film.
That company has no right to release anything, but they own the
filmed material, EMI who had Queen in their
stall at that time, is probably involved to. A lot of companies
involved. So there you have it...... Sometimes things are

Queen / Hammersmith Odeon 1979
/ 2CD – GiGinJapan The legendary recording of 1979 left by
prestigious Kinney brushes up with a new master. It is a permanent
preservation press appeared in 2CD. That legendary recording is
“London performance on December 26, 1979”. Although it is famous
also for images such as short television broadcasting and leakage
pro shots on this day, this album is a live album that completely
records the entire story of the show. It is a superb audience
recording recorded at the traditional name hall “Hammer Smith ·
Odeon”. The biggest point is in the upgraded sound, but first of
all the show position. Speaking of 1979, “JAZZ TOUR” became “LIVE
KILLERS”, but this work is somewhat different “CRAZY TOUR”. Let’s
look back from the schedule at the time to organize the situation.
● 1978 “JAZZ TOUR” · October 28 – December 20: North
America (35 performances)
● 1979 · January 17 – March 1:
Europe (28 performances)
· April 13 – May 6: Japan (15 shows) “June” THE GAME “Production
“June 22” LIVE KILLERS “released”
· August 18: SAARBRUCKEN OPEN AIR appearance
“October 5 singles” Crazy Little Thing … “released”
“CRAZY TOUR” · November 22 – December 26: Britain (20
This is the flow after “JAZZ”. “LIVE KILLERS”
was produced from the “European” tour, but began producing the
next work “THE GAME” before and after its release. In October we
released the first single “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, and it
was “CRAZY TOUR” that we did in England in my home country. In
“JAZZ TOUR”, there was no UK tour, and the schedule was entered
with the power of 20 performances. Even on such an UK tour,
Hammersmith ‘s performance of this work is highlight. Not only on
the last day but also a part of the Cambodia Relief Charity
Concert “CONCERT FOR KAMPUCHEA” by Paul McCartney’s call. It was
also its first day.
Such a show was filmed in Proshot,
partly television broadcasting. After that, the outflow Pro shot
was excavated and it became a symbol of 1979. However, such video
editing is incomplete. In contrast, this work is a live album that
you can enjoy full show. Moreover, the quality is superb. In any
case, that “Kinney” that made this work a thing. Although it is a
prestigious prestige who can say even synonymously with the boot
history of the Japanese performance, in reality many overseas
recordings are also left. This work is also a recording of the
inscription recorded by the staff of Kinney who passed away. This
recording itself has been known for a long time and has been used
as a masterpiece representative of 1979, but this work is further
upgraded New master. Although it is unknown whether it is an Omoto
master, it is far more refreshing than before and fresh. Although
the stereo feeling of “Jailhouse Rock” which had already been
disturbed in the past was also well prepared, the vividness that
the more it goes over the full story. The shining clearness also
makes me feel tight, as if the recording position approached quite
a while ago about 2-3 rows. If you already know the origin, you
know that it was originally on recording, but New Master will
further close to QUEEN. After experiencing this work, I will not
be able to listen to the already outburst already so wonderful.
Moreover, this work further remastered such new master. This
recording started slightly overpeaking and it is also known to
gradually improve, but this work relaxes it easier to hear that
over feeling. Of course, the pitch which was already mad at the
previous departure was prepared precisely, and it finished to the
ultimate form suitable for the highest peak master. A full show
that you can experience with such a superb sound … … amazing. It’s
too amazing. Although it is also known as pro shot image as
mentioned above, there is a plenty full version of famous songs
that were cut there. A moment to enumerate …… about 12 minutes
including “If You Can not Beat Them” “Mustapha” “Spread Your
Wings” “Keep Yourself Alive” “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Silent Night”
and “Brighton Rock” Also full of guitar & drum solos. The show
conforms to “LIVE KILLERS”, but there are also new songs “Save Me”
and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” of the next work “THE GAME”
that I could not listen to there.
Little Thing Called Love” is wonderful. Although this song was
also an image, actually Singa Long did not stop ringing even after
the performance was finished, but I was forced to reply to QUEEN.
They respond to the puzzling taste, entering “Bohemian Rhapsody”
as soon as saying “I’m sorry (laugh)” …. “Crazy Little Thing
Called Love” became a big hit marking the second place in Britain
as the latest single, but its real time feeling is wonderful. Also
included are songs between songs and MCs that were tricky in the
video. Although how pro shots are left, the feeling of experiences
of the performance is not comparable either.
masterpiece of extreme condition and extreme tension bursting out.
It is a superb live album that caught that full show with the best
sound of Kiny Magic’s full opening. Historic masterpiece whose
traditional masterpiece was upgraded with the new master. Please,
please enjoy at anytime with the permanent preservation press 2CD

better with the difference of muddy.
