|For people who can’t wait before the official DVD of the Sheffield concert is released:
Artist: Queen + Paul Rogers

Quality: Very Good / Excellent
Comment from taper: “the sound is, I think, even better than Manchester, though there's a bit more crowd noise”
I have downloaded the files in the Queenmp3 hub (for more info: link in wav format. After downloading the files, I have converted them to flac files with Flac frontend (on level 8).
01 Eminem – Loosing yourself
02 Reaching out – Tie your mother down
03 I want to break free
04 Fat bottomed girls
05 Wishing well

13 Feel like making love
14 Let there be drums
15 I’m in love with my car
16 Guitar solo
17 Last horizon
18 These are the days of our lives (incomplete)
For unknown reasons the equipment stopped recording halfway through These are the days of our lives.
Something about the equipment of the taper:
For recording this great concert he has used:
- sony ecm 719 mic (£45 from amazon at the moment usually £90)
- sony MZ N710 minidisc recorder (of about £160)
The concert is recorded on lp2 mode (160 mins stereo on 80 min disc) on automatic record level setting mode
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING: THANK YOU TAPER FOR TAPING THE CONCERT AND SHARING IT IN THE QUEENHUB AND FOR YOUR LOYALITY TO LET ME SHARE IT ON QUEENZONE TOO !!!!!!
All the good words about the recorded concert are for you. Absolutely not for me because I introduce it only for you.
have fun everybody with this download!!!!

|Thank you bokkepoot and many thanks to taper!|
|He (the taper) reads also the topic here, all compliments can post for him :)|
|Thanks a lot for sharing this!|
|Thanks to both of you!|
I was really hoping someone would get this one.
Not only 'cause I wanna hear it, but because it will help fuel the discussions about any possible 'fixes' to the official DVD.
Awsome - thanks again!

Will be fixed I guess :)
|Just so we're all clear, this is an mp3 that you've converted to flac?
I don't mind, I just want to know.

|Whats the filesize for this torrent?|
|454.9MB according to my current download screen|

|Cheers for that|
|Thanks a lot, but I'm just curious why bother with lossless now when minidisc is just as compressed as mp3?|
|hey thanks for the upload, but i'm wondering if it's my problem or there are really no one seeding????|
|sorry, my upload was ver slow last 6 hours
Now we go again for full speed !!!
FLAC is a compressed format...
Firstly, standard minidisc compression simply removes all of the inaudible information that is usually present on CDs, ie. it doesn't waste space!
Secondly, most of Sony's new machines record in ATRAC mode, which is a much better compression engine than MP3.
Third, MP3 is ok if you select a high bitrate like 320kb/s.
CD is, I believe, 174kb/s per channel???
(if I'm wrong please tell me)
SO. Bottom line basically though is that minidisc IS better quality than MP3.
take a look at the new ACC compression format: smaller files than MP3, but BETTER sound.
It's called progress....!!
Anyway, the recording is fantastic, so quit whinging.
|father to my son
|i was at Sheffield so cant wait to hear this one
at 33% now so give it a few hours with a bit of luck
BIG THANKS FOR SHARING THIS ONE!!

Bottom line basically though is that minidisc IS better quality than MP3.The bitrate on a standard cd is around 1500kbit/s, which explains why 128kbit mp3s are 1/10 the size of cds...
The older Minidiscs were approximately 140MB in size, so they had a bitrate of approximately 320kbit.
But I was under the impression that the newer HD discs were 1GB in size, which would mean almost 100 minutes of cd quality sound. :/
|HELP - how can i play these Flac files? Which player do i need? I have installed Winamp lite & I have the Windows Media Player 9.0
Can't play it on them :(
Do i have to burn them with Nero?
|Smartie, you can download a codec for Winamp:
or if you want to burn the tracks you must download a FLAC plugin for Nero: link
If you want to compress them to wav, use Flac Frontend: link
Thank you bokkepoot for this concert! :-)
|hello.. first post ever... get me.
its very slow downloading still :-s
btw, best gig i've ever been to i think.. was just fantastic! especially the glitter ball, and was i the only one that got the joke when brian played 'on top of Buckingham palace'? Well i thought it humorous...

was used.congretulations for these great recordings
and please tell us what you use.
|Thanks for this show. This is the first Queen+PR show i´ll get to listen to. I´m curious to hear how the songs sound played by them.|
|So info that may be useful for you:
An audio CD is digitally recorded at 44100 samples per second, each sample is given a 16 bit resolution. So when multiplying both number we get that each second of music of a (mono) track takes 705600 bits. If you multiply this by 2 (the number of channels in a stereo recording) you get 1411200 bits of information for one second of a stereo music track.
If you divide this by a typical encoding quality use d to create mp3 (128000 bits per second) you get:
1411200:128000 = 11,025
That means that each second of a stereo track in a n audio CD takes, approximately, eleven times more space in your hard disk than the corresponding mp3 (if it has been enconded @ 128kbps.) This compression is achieved at the cost of the attenuation of many of the frequencies that the human ear is not likely to hear. That´s why mp3 encoding is "lossy". Once you made that change you can´t take it back. Flac, on the contrary, is not lossy. When you uncompress a FLAC file, you get a wav file with each and every frequency of the original sound file which was compressed to make the FLAC file.
Well, hope this helps.
|thanks for sharing.
I'm glad it's a FLAC download instead of an mp3.
|Me too, too bad it ain't the complete gig tho. But really thanks a lot to the recorder/sharer and also a thank you for you, bokkepoot!|
|I BAG YOU, PLEASE RESEED SOMEONE!!!!|
