Comment:

Last Queen concert at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo ever. A great performance overall, but the sound quality of this audience recording is below average. Tie Your Mother Down and Brian's Guitar Solo are both cut. This concert has an amazing intro to Somebody To Love as this one is really wonderful. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

A second audience recording. This version comes from bootleg label ''Wardour'' and probably taken from the original master cassette. It has amazing sound quality, although the sound can be a bit unstable here and there. The last few songs after Radio Ga Ga are sounding a bit worse. I think the taper wasn't that close to the stage anymore during the last couple of songs. There is a slight cut in the middle of Now I'm Here, but otherwise complete concert recording. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

A third audience recording. This version comes from bootleg label ''Uxbridge'' called ''Final Budokan Nights''. It's the complete concert on CD 2 and CD 3 (CD 1 contains an audience recording from previous night). It has great sound quality, but not as good as the second source released by ''Wardour''. No copy errors. Not from mp3.

Comment:

A fourth audience recording from the last Queen concert at the Budokan Hall in Tokyo 1985. This source has good sound quality, but not as good as the second and third sources. It sounds more distant, but still very enjoyable. This version is released by an unknown bootleg label on two CDRs. Complete recording. No copy errors. Not from mp3.
