Comments:  Info on sleeve say's Norman Sheffield Acetate Rip & 35mm. Film Audio Transfer. 
Norman Sheffield was the boss of Trident studios, the time Queen signed manager contract with him back in the early days. (72-75). Queen's first 3 album was a trident production, but EMI was the releasing label.
Norman Sheffield past away on June 20th. 2014. The recording on this 2cdr claimed to be from Mr. Sheffield's own collection.
The tracks on disk one, is well known on bootlegs before. Heavily bootlegged several times. But this might have a better quality, since it's from Mr. Sheffield's collection.
The tracks on disk two, is also well known, but seams to be from a different 'tape work' than officially 1992 box releasing included the 'Live At The Rainbow' VHS video tape.
So all in all, this cdr will be a bit interested for hard core fans & collectors to listen to, since this 'mix' version has never been out on the marked.
Just want to say before you spend money on this bootleg, I would rather recommended checking out the official version released in September 2014.

Queen production has finally on Sept 5th. 2014, released this 2 concert in full on cd's & vinyl as well the November gig on DVD & Blu-ray. There was 2 shows in November. 19th & 20th. I have understand there is a mixing between these two days on the release.
Go to Queen store officially home page for full info, included track listing. 
Cover of the officially released 2 cd & vinyl release.
Roots: From Queen's manager Norman Sheffield's collection. Manager from 72 -75.

Revieve from the net.
In this year, we will gift-release housed in a 2 disk summarizes the three sources and that buzz is up to overseas specialized site of Queen. This is a Queen fan must listen all definitely! ! First, London’s first recorded in high-quality stereo sound board recording the stage of March 31 it was live at the Rainbow Theatre for the Queen in the disk 1. Bootleg LP “Master of Sheetkeeckers” is a famous line recording of the day, record drop was the most, but this board is the highest level there is no cloud cursory dropped from reel tape of Trident record studio It is recorded in stereo sound board.
Some video has also been confirmed in the live of this day, take this would be the best ever as a sound board source. (Duration 47 seconds 38 minutes) Enjoy reel tape master version boasts the highest quality of past performance of the best part.

Disk followed by 2. 1974 familiar with the video title “Sheer Heart Attack” All England tour last day, here I collect together of two or source of first appearance this also, the same Rainbow Theatre concert November 20. What was copied directly 5 the first track is the first CD, from acetate board of Norman Sheffield, owner of the primary manager and Trident Studios in Queen.
Fine scratch noise of vinyl records but also the specificity heard in only five tracks as described above, but you can enjoy the rainbow concert November 20, 1974 in the high-quality sound that can be asserted that past best. Father To Son, which has been recorded in the middle is arranged in the correct position in the video in addition to the three songs show beginning, contents (recording of 16 seconds 22 minutes here) that you can listen in the correct order of songs originally. 5 songs you can listen without any deterioration of, the highest quality of freshness preeminent fan must listen to all!

The next version of extracting only the audio from a 35 mm film image. Texture itself is totally different from the sound of the rainbow performances have been heard so far, it is that “mix is different” and in the description of the net, but if there is a difference in sound quality so far, sounds like another thing certainly certainly is sound.
The sound is good, but the 35 mm film is what made with audio master of branching from the master, direct feeling is retracted, This is a sound impression mild edge to the sound. However degradation because little is not bad freshness of sound, this Would not it be valuable as an audio source in this original. For video of 52 minutes, this take has not been recorded only 32 minutes original, Ogre Battle, In The Lap Of The Gods, Son & Daughter, Jailhouse Rock has been cut in contents but, at the beginning It may be said of listen to audio direct from the master of the 35 mm film the official edit version was recorded the intro CIC official and valuable.
The listen in New source that does not ever contact, a live take of the familiar to fans in all three sound source at the highest, or will there not be one that is unbearable for a fan. This is a great collection of sound source! One of the must-have, must listen.
