I've already posted this on the main board, but to no joy, so if anyone hasn't read it, here it is again: I've got at least one version of every live track Queen performed (excluding covers, e.g. Tutti Frutti, Jailhouse Rock etc.) apart from three songs - Great King Rat, Machines (intro) & It's A Hard Life. If anyone by any chance has a live version of these, I'd be interested in negotiating a deal where you'd let me have a copy of said tracks in exchange for any live tracks that you don't have - please note, UK based traders only.

I can't believe people fall so easily for something as stupid as a full live version of Side Black. Of course that doesn't exist - how would they be able to reproduce, for example, Fairy Feller live on stage?
But Greg Brooks apparently thought it was worthy of being in his book, so apparently he is a gullible sod too.
Until recently - not too many knew that Jesus and The Night Comes Down were played live (see Mr. Scully's site), then combine that with the published information in Rare Live - and the Black Side medley might sound plausable.
Plus the fact that Pim did not have the reputation of being a wind up artist ...
Congrats Pim - you got me - but then again I'm a gullable sod anyway - so don't lose your head.
Hehe, let's hope we'll someday know if it does exist after all...
I'm just getting a bit tired with all these newbies coming to Queenzone thinking anyone is actually interested in their uninteresting (mp3-sourced?) collection.
Pim - Isn't that a bit harsh? Do you remember when your collection was "uninteresting"? I don't believe that his request was aimed at you, but more at newbies like himself. Surely, there are other newbies more deserving of bashing (Is Freddie gay?).
"the japanese cover band "Kween" did "The Fairy Fellers Master Stroke" live. So it is possible to play that one onstage :)"
That is a bit unfair!
Yes - what you say is true - but that is only because 2004 synthetic technology makes it possible - it was virtually impossible to perform live almost 30 years ago!
Likewise, the "Beatles" knew that "Sgt Pepper" could not be performed live on stage (then) - but recently McCartney has performed tracks like "A Day In The Life" live - because the technology to do so now exists!
Come on - at least compare your oranges to other oranges and not apples instead!

When one is gullable, anything can be possible. :)
