Comment:

Audience recording from Providence 1978 during the US Jazz tour. It covers the complete concert in excellent stereo sound quality! This recording features an epic moment when Freddie starts to play the intro of The March Of The Black Queen before the start of Bohemian Rhapsody, the only known instance of him doing that. The taper shared this recording through YouTube only, so it's not lossless, but this is the best version we have so far. It comes from a CDR with a half second missing at the beginning of each track. Bob did a very nice job to smoothen out those gaps and did some corrections here and there. This is without a doubt one of the best audience recordings of the US Jazz tour.
No copy errors. Not from mp3.


Bob's comment:

I did my best to smoothen out those gaps, as well as correcting the speed (the tape ran a bit fast) and EQing it (there was too much bottom end, except for '39 where John Deacon is on his fretless bass - the arena may have been boomy that night).


Taper's comment:

"I was in the 3rd row and it was my 4th Queen show. Their shows were getting more elaborate as the years went on but the music was always perfect. It was a wonderful evening and this tape is full of memories so enjoy and experience what I heard. This is my private recording. I managed to capture some of the great classic bands that played in the Rhode Island/Boston area. These tapes were very private for many years and were made so I could enjoy listening the show again. As a concert taper, I was not associated with bootleggers but just a fan of music. If you enjoy listening to this show please respect the rights of the artist and support them by buying their records and seeing their shows when they come to your town. Please never sell or support people that try to profit from live recordings''.
