The main reason I picked this album up was because I wanted to know how Queen sounded live, in record. I'm not the biggest fan of live-recordings but I do enjoy them.
Listening to this makes me wish that there were also DVD-footage to go with it. I'd love to SEE '70s Queen-show, too.
Of course Freddie Mercury's vocals aren't same as in studio. Actually, I don't think he is at all at his best (which is, of course, purely marvellous!) on live. (vocally speaking, the showmanship is from outer space or something....Ü but we can't see it on CD.) But surely he is not bad, either, I don't mean it like that.
Sometimes I don't mind, and that's when I'm in the mood for Live Killers. But when I do mind, I'll listen to the studioalbums.
I don't like so much of '39 here. On "ANATO" I LOVE the song, but in the first place I'd like to hear Brian's vocals here too, and the other thing. Now this is something I find inexcusable. Freddie messes the lyrics up so bad! If you're going to perform the song, you learn the lyrics!!!!
What I love about this album, is the inclusion of early songs from Keep Yourself Alive and Killer Queen to Sheer Heart Attack and I'm In Love With My Car. Lovely.
Sound is raw '70s -style. Good for live, no complaints, I rather like it. :o)
Music, songs here are of course TEN out of five!
This is a good, solid live-CD recommended to all who want to hear some live-Queen.
