Comment:

This is the first audience source from the famous second night at the Budokan in Tokyo 1975. This one is sourced from LP and it's still the only part widely available. The complete recording of this particular source has never seen the light of day yet. The sound quality is quite nice and enjoyable. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

A second audience source of this great concert from the Budokan Hall in Tokyo on the 1st of May 1975. What a wonderful setlist! It has a rare and great performance of Hangman. 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. The band really had a wonderful time and they played a great performance. It's complete (besides a small cut during Son And Daughter for a tape flip) and very long concert, almost two hours! The overall sound quality is decent. It's a bit unstable here and there, but still enjoyable. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:


This version released by Wardour in 2020 is supposed to be the master tape version of source 2. The small cut during Brian's Guitar Solo is patched in with source 6. The overall sound quality is better than the above version and gets even more clearer during the last part of the concert. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

Bootleg label ''Wardour'' released a fourth audience source of this great concert. It has decent and stable sound quality. Now I'm Here, Ogre Battle and Brian's Guitar Solo were originally cut on this fourth audience source, but the bootleg label patched in the missing parts from the ''First Live Attack'' source to make it complete. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

This fifth audience source features a great quality recording! 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''. This is one of the best audience recording from the early days. There are no loud screaming girls anymore that ruin the recording a bit, unlike some of the old sources of this concert. Great release. No copy errors. Not from mp3.


Stark's comment:

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.

Comment:

This is a seventh audience source from this fantastic concert at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1975. This source is released by bootleg label ''Tarantura'', but it's not recorded by ''Mr. Peach''. The sound quality is very good, but the bootleg label added so much compression that it will make a hard listen for your ears.. On the other hand, it features the complete concert, including all the cheering between the encores. It's the longest recording of this concert. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
