A great concert recording from the Budokan Hall in Tokyo on the 1st of May 1975. This is a superb release from a Japanese bootleg label called ''Tarantura''. It has amazing sound quality in stereo, which is highly enjoyable and also remastered by ''Stark''. What a wonderful setlist! It has a rare performance of Hangman, so finally we can hear this song in such a clear sound quality. A very long performance of Liar during this concert, one of the longest version so far to my knowledge. They also played a complete version of Great King Rat, which is really one of my favourite Queen songs. The Rock'n'Roll medley during the last part of the concert is almost 8 minutes long. Do we want more? Well, to end the concert with See What A Fool I've Been as the last encore makes it really complete. This is one of the best audience recording from the early days. There are no screaming girls anymore that ruin the recording a bit, unlike the old recording of this concert. The band really had a wonderful time and they played a great performance. 100% complete and very long concert, almost two hours! No copy errors. Not from mp3.
Firstly, this recording has been crushed by excessive compression (sometime since the introduction of digital limiters, so an uncompressed master should exist), and it's all but impossible to undo. However, by correcting the equalization I have minimised the effect and increased the peak-to-average ratio (dynamic range) by about 4dB. As the original has a ratio of about 9dB (!), this represents a significant difference. Please note that if you are comparing this version with the original, it will sound quieter. The bulk of the equalization was done with Har-Bal. I then applied high- and low-pass filters with a Waves Renaissance 2-band eq and brought it back up to level (-0.2dB) with a Waves L3 limiter in Wavelab. I have re-tracked the songs, corrected the balance between left and right channels and applied new fades. The rock'n'roll medley, as requested, has been combined into one track, as has Son and Daughter. Very few eq boosts were used (boosts, like mp3s, are bad), and no denoisers.
