Notes: I had to share this Ð itÕs fabulous. From a tape recorded by Dan Lampinski
and recently shared at Dime by Carl Morstadt Ð I just made it run at the right
speed as it was too fast. Download this, I guarantee youÕll love it - unless you hate
Queen, in which case, why are you reading this? The sound quality is
phenomenal for a 1976 audience recording Ð rich bass, clear treble, stereo
separation and all Ð and itÕs a heck of a gig. EverybodyÕs on top of their game. I
made some artwork as well.
