Comment:

Interesting Queen concert because it was held in the middle of a touring break. The sound quality itself is around B, but it was recorded a bit distant and you can also hear the audience very clear too, so that's why I rate it a bit lower. The audience made a lot of noise and that makes the sound a little bit disappearing on some parts. I'm not really sure if this is a complete concert because it really seems a bit short and I also can't hear any cuts besides a slightly one during Brian's Guitar Solo. Earlier that day Roger tried to bleach his hair, but it not went out that good and his hair became green for some reason ;-). Roger later said that it was one of the most embarrassing moments of his life to play there in Saarbrucken. Roger destroyed his drumkit after We Are The Champions because he had some sound problems with his drums. I think that's the reason that God Save The Queen starts so late after We Are The Champions. Before the start of If You Can't Beat Them Freddie says ''We are going to do a song that we haven't got on the album Live Killers''. Freddie's vocals are really in a good shape on this concert and that is probably because of the touring break. Very nice surprises in the setlist. Mustapha and Somebody To Love were both played. It is the first live appearance of Mustapha. Also a nice appearance of Jailhouse Rock in the last part of the concert. CD copy from second generation cassette. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
