Comment:

Nice performance by the band on the second night in Rotterdam 1979 during the European Jazz Tour. Unfortunately an incomplete recording, but of course still nice to have. It misses all the songs after It's Late. The person who recorded this show might have saved some space on the tape for We Are The Champions, but I can't confirm that. The sound quality is maybe a bit better than on the first night. This one has at least not so much tape hiss. Quite enjoyable recording, although the sound quality switches a bit between C+ and B-. You're My Best Friend is cut from the beginning. Some difference to the first night is that they played Fat Bottomed Girls this time instead of If You Can't Beat Them. Wonderful Performance by Brian in the last part of Spread Your Wings. A few copy errors, so not for trade. Not from mp3.

Comment:

Nice alternate source. It is still not a complete recording, but very valuable. Only a 90 minutes tape was used to record the concert. The tape ran out during Brian's Solo. We Will Rock You (Fast), Let Me Entertain You, Get Down Make Love and Don't Stop Me Now are all slight cut. Also Now I'm Here has a slight cut during Freddie's vocal improvisation as the tape was changed at that time, but it continues on CD 2. The sound quality is a bit better than on the ''common'' source. It only has some tape hiss and sound dropouts here and there. The first few songs are only C+, but then the sound improves to B-. CD copy from master cassette. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
