2 CD

Label: Wardour 289
Country: Japan
Released: August 2018
Recorded: Yoyogi National Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan  May 11th. 1985.
Sound: Excellent pro-recording.
Comments:  Another pro-bootleg from the last Tokyo concert in 1985. From the last Queen tour in Japan with Freddie. This is from "The Works" tour. This is from the finale days of "The Works" tour.
As far as I know, this is a collection of two sources. The officially Japanese laser & later DVD release 'Final Live In Japan' & from a Japanese radio broadcast back in 1985. Most of the recording comes probably from the laser disc release, and supplied with the missing songs from the live radio broadcast. 'Dragon Attack' comes from the radio. I don't have the album, so I'm not sure of all details yet.
There might be missing a instrumental inferno (keyboard, guitar solo & drum solo) which was played before 'Another One Bites The Dust'. I'm quite sure this tunes is missing.
Some limited copies comes with a dvdr as a bonus. Those copies has a sticker on front cover. 
Roots: Officially laser disc or dvd & a radio broadcast.
Time: 50:30 / 41:00

Back cover

This day is exactly the symbol of “QUEEN Last Japan”. Although the actual last show was in Osaka, Yoyogi performance was broadcast on television and radio, and even in the official it was made into a work as “FINAL CONCERT LIVE IN JAPAN”. It is a big staple in the classic that has inherited the last intercourse of Japan and QUEEN which are too special. However, at the same time it is also famous for official work that is crucial to the task. The official edition has support keyboards mixed more than Brian May’s guitar, drum sounds are strange, Roger Taylor’s voice is hard to hear … …. Official was what I wanted to say, “What is this?” Nominated.
And this official dropping was mostly for the sound board · boot leg. However, there was also a natural and complete soundboard that was entirely different from the official video. That was the then FM radio program that was broadcast soon after the live. At the “Young Music Show” that was broadcast before it was formulated yet, the mix was as it was heard at the venue. Nearly unprocessed guitars and vocals are fantastic natural sounding, and even the official video was edited in the first half “Liar”, the whole was also cut “Dragon Attack” complete collection. It was a telecast that was praised as “over official” from maniacs all over the world, “this should have been officially left”.
Only such an official beyond soundboard, we also made a title in our store earlier. I also played the press in “THE LAST TOUR IN JAPAN” set for 3 days. However, this work is not its reprint or remaster recurrence …… I got a superb air check · master by a completely different writer. It is a completely new work which made it direct CD.
Amazingly, that sound. I do not think that it is the same broadcast anymore! Actually, this new master was a treasure collection of a recording mania, but that person was the record maker who shocked the impact with SADE super masterpiece “PROMISE IN TOKYO”. Despite the familiar sound board, it is totally different from other recordings, and yet it has zero processing feeling. In the world of core recorders who are committed to electromagnetic wave conditions and equipment, we have continued to realize high quality sounds without going through. Such an ancient mania listened to “THE LAST TOUR IN JAPAN” and provided that “my collection was a better sound”.
Indeed, the sound flowing out of this work is surely reproduced by that SADE magic. As well as “THE LAST TOUR IN JAPAN” you can feel the mix and ringing that exceeded the official, but the new master of this time is more natural with a loop. It is exactly the sound that broadcast radio waves of 1985 jumped over space-time as it is. Freddy’s singing voice is particularly emotional. “THE LAST TOUR IN JAPAN” was also fresh, but the treble was rather strong. Of course, it also felt power and clearness by that, but Freddie’s singing voice was slightly kickin. In contrast, this work is super natural and the site itself. Now Freddie who does not pass the microphone is like the singing living.
This sound can never be realized in the existing equalizing. It is a natural sound that can only be a non-machining ultra-superb master. It is not that evidence, but please listen to songs such as “Is This The World We Created?” “Love Of My Life”. Freddie’s singing voice stands out in a simple ensemble only to the acoustic corner, but in the previous episode it contained delicate hiss noise here. It was something that I finally noticed in the silence section and acoustics, but the new master of this time has not even such a small hiss. Because it is just that super freshness, it is beautiful even if completely broadcast without broadcasting. And because it is completely unprocessed, super natural sound has been realized.
In such a situation, this work has points processed only by 1 point. It is a comment from a famous DJ that was recorded at the beginning of the program and last. In the broadcast title so far, DJ’s voice was recorded as a sense of era, but in this work all deleted. At the beginning DJ ‘s voice was covered at the beginning “Machines” supplemented with official video, I made it a full live album of “QUEEN only”. The reason was that the new master was too natural and faithful to “the last QUEEN”. If you’ve heard the episode you already know, DJ’s comment is somewhat cynical. It is also a real era feeling, but I also wanted to get rid of even those DJ filters that I did. Until so much this work is QUEEN and natural sound that can touch Freddie in reality.

The official video also surpassed the light FM sound board. It is a marvelous new excavation master who updates its highest peak. Although there is no flashy as “THE LAST TOUR IN JAPAN”, it is a natural edition in which breasts are tightened to the singing voice of Freddie because it is unprocessed. Deep deep emotion of “Love Of My Life” whose Freddie and Japanese audience are overlapping their voices … …. Please inscribe in the mind forever with the permanent preservation press 2CD forever.
