Recorded: Yamaha Tsumagio Hall, Kakegawa (a place near Shizuoka), Japan, April 29th. 1975.
Sound: Audience recording.
Comments:  Nice Japanese 2cd from Queen's first Japan tour. This show has been previously released on pro bootleg by "Sweet Encore", another Japanese label in around 2000. I'm not sure if this recording comes from this release, or from a NEW tape source. I will not guess around this.
You can find info on the "Sweet Encore" release here.

While this show has been referred to as being performed in Shizuoka, the show took place in Kakegawa, a city in the prefecture of Shizuoka (Shizuoka city itself is about 30km away from the venue where the show was played). Thanks to Jumeteor for pointing this out. (Taken from Queen Live)
Roots: From a audience recorded tape.
