Review from Internet.

QUEEN and South America first met “Buenos Aires performance on February 28, 1981”. The first complete sound board album that includes the whole picture is here.
Speaking of South America, the region of parent QUEEN alongside Japan. However, it was relatively late for them to visit South America for the first time in 1981, when they reached number one in the United States. The tour, which mobilized hundreds of thousands of people in all seven performances, was enthusiastic after enthusiasm and seemed to have left them an impact comparable to the legendary first visit. This week, the super-definition sound board “DEFINITIVE SAO PAULO 1981 PRE-FM MASTER (Wardour-366)” that recorded such a South American tour was released at the same time. Here, let's check the show position based on the dates narrowed down to the South American tour.

・ February 28: Buenos Aires [This work]
・ March 1: Buenos Aires
・ March 4: Mar del Plata
・ March 6: Rosario
・ March 8: Buenos Aires
・ March 21: Sao Paulo
   -Half a year later-
・ September 25-27: Caracas (3 performances)
・ October 9: Monterrey
・ October 17 + 18: Puebla (2 performances)

This is QUEEN's first South American tour “GLUTTONS FOR PUNISHMENT TOUR”. The first seven performances were held in early spring, after which the single “Under Pressure” with David Bowie was produced and turned off. Six months later, six performances were held.

The Buenos Aires performance of this work was the first day concert that was the first meeting. The FM broadcast sound board has been known on this day, and the highest peak “DEFINITIVE BUENOS AIRES 1981 1ST NIGHT (Wardour-252)” is also very popular in our shop. This work is not the latest version. Until now, it was FM broadcasting, but this work is a sound board of AM broadcasting "RADIO RIVADAVIA" different from it.

The biggest point of this work is the first complete recording ever. The existence of `` Now I'm Here (Reprise) '' has become a hot topic so far, but the AM version is not that much, it was not even broadcast on FM radio `` Get Down, Make Love '' `` God Save The “Queen” was also broadcast. This work is the first complete board based on such an AM broadcast version sound board (in contrast, AM broadcast had a cut in the middle of "Rock It (Prime Jive)" and Brian's guitar solo, but in this work FM Supplemented by broadcasting).

Actually, the AM version is a monaural broadcast different from the FM version, and the quality is slightly rounded. For that reason, the permanent preservation press has been postponed, but the complete response is still great. This show was the first meeting with South America, and the tension of four people who were surprised at the great hospitality exploded. Freddie is particularly excited about South America while groping. “Get down! Borabien!” Is the first time, and the great chorus of “Love Of My Life” does n’t hide the impression of “Fantastico!” “Gracious!”. The first experience “Get Down, Make Love” appears in the flow. It is really wonderful that the singing voice with great tone penetrates the groovy sound space. The Portuguese DJs can see how the members are not transmitted by sound alone, but it is also the feeling of South America that touched QUEEN for the first time.

“God Save The Queen” will be the first to conclude such a high-tension performance. In FM broadcasting, the last of “We Are The Champions” ended with a fade-out, but in this work you can taste a glorious finish. Freddy shouted thanks to “Adios! Amigos!” And the Portuguese DJ reported with excitement. If it is normal, DJ is only awkward, but this work is where QUEEN and South America first met. Not only were four people excited about the first South American paste, but South America was also shocked by the first QUEEN. The realism of that history can be felt vividly.

QUEEN visited South America only twice in 1981 and 1985 by ROCK IN RIO. Especially in Argentina, all 5 performances in 1981 were all. Despite enthusiastically loving QUEEN, there were too few South American shows. It is a new excavation of sound board recording that allows you to fully experience the first meeting. One that simply touches me more than "the number of songs that I couldn't listen to has increased." Please enjoy it carefully.
