Label: TAKRL 1957 
Country: USA
Released: February 1975
Recorded: Rainbow Theatre, London UK  March 31st. 1974. 
Sound: Excellent stereo professional recording.

Comments:  The first Queen bootleg out on the marked. Released in February 1975. This recording has over the years been listed as a BBC 'In Concert' recording ,but that's not true. The concert was recorded by Trident/EMI for a possible (officially) live LP. For some reason this was cancelled, and the tape has found the way out on the bootleg market and ended quickly out on vinyl.
'Ballroom Blitz' by Sweet follows 'Liar'. Taken from their (Sweet)  officially album. I have been told there is a special reason why the bootlegger choice this track, but I don't know the reason.
Some tracks on this bootleg, has been broadcasted on various radio stations. At least in US.

In 2014 Queen production released officially this concert complete, and the Rainbow concert in November 74 on 2CD and 2LP (parts) and on 4 LP box set, aswell in a deluxe cd box set with book & DVD of the Nov gig included. A fantastic production, which all serious Queen fans MUST get. Title is 'Live At The Rainbow'.
Side 1 & 2 on the 2lp, is the same as this release. So the tracks on this bootleg vinyl LP, IS the same which was planed released back in 74. The DVD (and Blue-Ray) included 2 tracks from this March gig.
