This is a vinyl rip of the ‘Absolutely Enthusiastic’ album from the ‘The Famous Killers Rhythm Label’ (TFKRL 9002), done in high resolution 24bit/96kHz and a version converted to 16bit/44.1kHz (CD quality). This version of the LP is a first press from 1990 on black vinyl (later pressings were on colored vinyl), and has a complete version of ‘Liar’. Compared to other CD bootlegs this one has a much clearer sound, with less distortion and a better stereo image. If you rate the sound quality of the common CD bootlegs A, this one should be A+ rating.
The vinyl itself is in excellent condition, no scratches, stains or hairlines. However, bootleg LP’s are mostly not pressed in the same quality as ‘normal’ LP’s, and this one is no exception. There are some clicks and crackles and these are all manually removed with iZotope RX. The azimuth was slightly off, this was also corrected with iZotope RX, resulting in a better stereo sound. The recording also had a lot of noise (hiss) (it’s also present on the other bootlegs), so this is most likely a source problem. I did some noise reduction with iZotopeRX, watching carefully that no music got lost. This means there is still some noise/hiss, but not so annoying as it was.
I have included photos from the front and back cover and scans from all four labels. Please note: both the back cover and the label place ‘Liar’ on side B, in reality it’s the last song on side A.
Please forgive me my poor English writing skills and enjoy this beautiful concert!
Torrent for 16/44 CD version in the next post.

|Ghostwithasmile is BACK!
|Some vinyls of this show do have a complte different edit of this show and dif sound compared to the official video release. Was this show broadcasted (live?) on the japanese radio? Was there a vinyl with the guitar solo included? Time for queen homework. Good share! Thnx|

ThnxI’ve no exact idea where this particular version comes from. If you look at the spectrum from the 24/96 you’ll notice there’s not a lot going on above 20 kHz. So I guess this was recorded from FM radio and later transferred to LP. But it’s guessing.
Maybe The Real Wizard can give some info…
I've never seen a heard of a complete version of this show.

Innuendo is intresting cause it has a slight different mix in some songs... i still don't have Made in heaven but i think isn't the same cause is a ""digital pressed"" lpMERQRY wrote: Thanks! i love LP's... i riped all my Queen lp's to my pc in 24/96 and they sound GREAT (sadly i can't share them here for obvious reasons)You shure won't need any remasters.

|Very nice share !!
Long time ago, in the beginning of the nineties I have bought this double LP on a market in Holland with my last money. Nice memories !

|Thanks a lot!|
|Thank you very much !
I wanted to hear this all the time.
|Listened to this this morning on my laptop (16/44.1 version)and can say one thing, it's not that different from my previous version from Le Fleur Du Mal. In fact one thing is certain either Le Fleur Du Mal is sourced from a copy of this LP or from the same tape source.
I say this because the same two glitches on Le Fleur Du Mal (speed issues on the tape maybe) on the instrumental inferno and at the end of Bohan Rhap are also on this version.
Bob, can you add more?
|Excellent work. Downloading now.
Thank you very much for this!

Bob, can you add more?Thanks for sharing your work on this new old source, indeed this one sounds quite similar to the Fleur du mal bootleg, which was already excellent. Would be interested to compare it to Bob's pre bootleg source :-)
|Fantastic! Thanks, your hard work is much appreciated :)|
|T h a n k s ! ! !|
|Nice to have it in this resolution
Is your name derrived from the quote featured in the Pink Floyd song Us and Them?
|Yeah,Thanks 'ShortSharpShoc !!!
It's incridble to have 24 bits and actually I like too much the version of Hammer to Fall from this show !

Damn good song from a fantastic album!!
