Sound: I will guess more than less excellent pro-recording. (From television).
Comments:  Looks like a nice 'Masterworks' release from the March 1st 1981. This is the 2nd concert the band played on this South American 1981 'The Game' tour. Also the second concert in Argentina.
This concert was also filmed & recorded by national television and radio as well (unsure radio), like the first concert the day before, February 28th.
The first concert on Feb. 28th, has been heavily pro-bootlegged on vinyl, cd & dvd over the years by various bootleg labels, using many titles. To many to mention.
But, this concert from March 1st., is the first time I have found it out on a pro-bootleg. I might take wrong about 'not released on bootleg before', but I can't remember I've seen this concert out before. The info below, says that the quality of this release is excellent.

"Rock Argentina-Complete Master Edition" that recorded the 81-year South American tour that became the largest in Queen's live history! A must-listen must-see collector's edition definitive edition with the longest version 2CD of the March 1 performance complete recording by the latest AI stereo remastered for the first time and the original re-edited pro shot TV broadcast complete version DVD!
Roots: From Argentina national television, well unsure of national. Might be a regional TV station.
