What you’ll find here is not ‘just another’ copy of the well-known show from April 16th, 1982 in Zürich. Even though all known copies are from the same source, and all were originally taken from the vinyl bootleg, this one will give you so much more pleasure!
Many of the well-known or common Queen bootlegs are originally sourced from vinyl. Most of them were copied to CD when CD became the new standard. However, most of them could have sound so much better if solid equipment was used, and the modern software we (can) all use today to clean it up.
What you’ll get from this share is:
- Crystal clear sound quality overall
- Better sound quality on the high side of the sound spectrum
- Sound on the low side is better defined
- Wider stereo sound
- Better instrument separation
- Speed corrected concert
- Tracks in the right order
This concert is presented in 24 bit/96KHz for those who want nothing but the best,
and in 16 bit/44.1 KHz for those who are satisfied with CD quality.
