Comment:

Final night of the five concerts that Queen played at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1981. Very nice surprises in the setlist as they played the full Rock It (Prime Jive) and Teo Torriatte after We Are The Champions. Also a nice Millionaire Waltz intro to Play The Game. The sound quality is decent, pretty stable and enjoyable. There is some crackles during some songs, but at least no major problems. Another One Bites The Dust and the first part of Sheer Heart Attack are sounding a bit worse than the rest of the recording. This is the complete concert. The only cut is during the Drum Solo, but it continues on CD 2. Nice soundcheck as a bonus, but it's probably from Japan 1979. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

My second audience source of the final night that Queen played at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1981. It comes straight from the original silvers of a bootleg label called ''Tarantura''. This recording is taped by ''Mr. Peach'' and this one also has amazing sound quality. The only problem is that the bootleg label added so much compression that it sounds very loud with also some distortion here and there. It features the complete concert. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
