Sound: Audience recordings. I will guess very good ~ excellent sound.
Comments:  Long box release from the 1980 'The Game' tour.
CD 1 & 2 is live in Rosemont, USA, which is about 40 minutes car drive north-west of Chicago. Previous released on other bootlegs (cd, LP), often listed as a Chicago concert. But, it's actually in Rosemont.
The other concert are live in Frankfurt, Germany.
Some bonus tracks are included at the end of disc 4.
I don't have this bootleg. Both concert has been released before on bootlegs. I'm not sure if the sources come from previous bootlegs tapes.
Information on back cover, say's newly remastered superb audience recordings from the lowest available generation tapes.

'Imagine' live from Hyde Park, London in July 2005, is Queen + Paul Rodgers. Taken from the officially released DVD 'Return Of The Champions' bonus track.
This DVD is from a concert in Sheffield 2005. Also released on 2cd & 3LP box set.
This free 'Hyde Park' concert was professional filmed, but only this 'Imagine' track + 'Bohemian Rhapsody' has been available officially.
Roots: Audience tape recordings. Except the bonus track, 'Imagine' with Paul Rodgers from Hyde Park in 2005. Only available on that DVD release.
