Comment:

Nice performance with usual Works Tour setlist. The overall sound quality of this audience recording is below average. It's recorded too loud and has bass distortion. I Want To Break Free has a slight cut because of a tape flip and the sound quality decreases till the end of the recording. This version comes from bootleg label ''Uxbridge'' and runs at the correct speed. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

This is the first CD of the three-CD package from a release of bootleg label ''Uxbridge'' called ''Final Budokan Nights''. It covers an incomplete audience recording from the first night at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1985. The recording runs out during Love Of My Life and it is cut after one minute. It has very enjoyable sound quality throughout the whole recording, but you can hear the audience very clear too and it sounds a bit distant. CD 2 and CD 3 are featuring the complete second night recording. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

A third audience recording from the first night at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1985. This version comes from bootleg label ''Wardour'' and they claim that it comes straight from the original master. It contains the complete concert in decent sound quality. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
