Comment:

These are the original pressed silvers from a bootleg label called ''Gypsy Eye''. Professionally remastered with great sound quality! It has a bit more bass now. This is the first night at the Wembley Arena (8 December 1980). On this night John Lennon was shot in New York and after this concert Queen played Imagine in their setlist on a couple of shows. The ending of this concert is correct. Some dirty talk from Freddie during God Save The Queen as he says ''Hey, we can all go home now and get fucked!''. This is the complete concert. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

Complete audience recording from first night in London 1980. This version comes straight from the LP bootleg called ''Flash Alive''. It has clearer sound than the bootleg called ''Standing On The Arena'', but on the other hand it has less bass. This LP version has tiny distortion, so it could be from a different tape transfer of the same source. Great sound quality and highly enjoyable. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

Definitive version of this great concert. This release comes from bootleg label ''Wardour'' and they claim it's from the audience master tape. It's the best sounding version so far and contains the complete concert. Great release. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
