If there is one audio recording that represents
Queen as a live band before they hit super-stardom, this is the one. Taped
by Dan Lampinski from the fifth row right-center, this is perhaps the
best-sounding audience recording of Queen from the decade.
sound beautifully captures the channel separation of Brian and Freddie's
solo spots. Even Freddie's tambourine is clearly heard in Keep Yourself
Alive and Liar. I'd say that this show could be released as an official
bootleg, it is so good!
The stunning clarity
of this recording can only make one imagine (or recall) how truly great
the band sounded live, and appreciate the quality work of their in-house
sound mixer. Simply put, this is early Queen at their very best -
essential listening for any fan of rock music.
Queen Productions will
be hard-pressed to come up with an official release that can top this. The
only slight flaw of this tape is that it runs a bit too fast. I fixed it,
and now this show runs at correct speed.
