Review from Wardour people.

This release is very fantastic sound recording of live at Hallenstadion, Zurich, Switzerland 16th April 1982, Fourth day of Hot Space Euro Tour. It is recording from
very good condition of Italian bootleg LP LONG LIFE TO THE QUEEN. No Flash and The Hero was included, Sheer Heart Attack’s ending also not recorded, they are same as LP. But this release is much better upgrade than released CD before. We correct pitch and right order of Staying Power and Under Pressure. This is surely best version.

Original paper sleeve CD is very bad sound. But this release is surely much better sound. Opeing tune Tie Your Mother Down is still not good recording, but the sound is getting better after that, You can listen to Action This Day with very good condition. If you listen to opening SE of Play the Game, you will know this recording will be one of the best recording of this tour. Mania Queen mania says Freddy is really good condition in this live. He sing lively and control his high tone voice in Somebody To Love that is greatest of this song. It is really pity that ending cut and really bad sound mastering in LP bootleg 1982.

After Somebody To Love, audience We Will Rock You call are break out, and Roger play little drum Brian play the guitar, too. After MC for their new release, their new type tune Staying Power was played that is funky. the band is not familiar with this song, but Freddy’s great vocal and keyboard sound are very gorgeous and conspicuous. the flowing heavy version of Get Down Make Love is very solid ensemble by the band that get accustomed to play. you can enjoy it very well with high quality recording.

He joyfully shout all right, yeah, yeah, he is really fine. Under Pressure is right place to play. and We Will Rock You call by audience again. Brian talks with his acoustic guitar. Freddy makes audience sing full Love Of My Life after he counts like 1, 2, 3, 4. It is very fanatic and dramatic performance like South American Tour. Freddy vocal is graceful after you remember… After the song, he make audience hyper with his Blac Chat’s rhythm improvisation. This is best performance that you buy this title to listen to. Surely this live is the best of this tour.

John’s bass is also fantastic especially intro of  Mustapha is low with relax like Led Zeppelin Kashmir. After introducing Morgan Fisher and shouting We need tempo! , they play long rhythm improvisation. It is very fantastic point. After intro Death On Two Legs, Bohemian Rhapsody is played with really best vocal.

Freddy’s shout Yeah, yeah , yeah ah-ha, I like it! and Now I’m Here is played, Brian guitar solo and call and response All, right, all right are so fantastic. Jam before Dragon Attack is also fine with especially good bass. The ending of Sheer Heart Attack are cut, it is pity, but you can enjoy We Will Rock You & We Are The Champions and last tune for the live God Save The Queen, Let’s Go Home by Freddy. Now many foreign Queen mania estimate this high quality new vinyl rip version, but we did remaster with strong low sound addition and removed noise of vinyl. This LONG LIFE TO THE QUEEN is best title in 2013. Please enjoy with much volume sound.
