|Thankyou very much Ginger!!!!|
|Thank you very much for this - just starting to collect pre-'Flash Gordon' Queen shows.
Just one question - do you know what title the bootleg of this show has?
|To be honest, I'm not sure. I found front covers called Early USA and Dear Friend Good Bye but no back covers. Maybe there is an expert out there who could elucidate the question?|
|This is great - thank you.|
|Many thanks, Ginger! :)|
|Thanks for this. Love the early shows.|
|It is "Uris Theatre '74"
thanks for this ginger!

With Beatles and Led Zeppelin bootlegs for example, the majority of recordings out there are from silver cds, and collectors of those bands are very careful when differentiating between versions of a concert or studio recording. Anything else has been labeled with a particular generation of tape, and in some cases, the equipment and software used to transfer a tape to digital. There is very little Beatles and LZ material that isn't properly identified (as long as we exclude mp3s going around on the internet, which those collectors generally ignore).
Collecting Queen, on the other hand, has been a royal (no pun intended) pain for serious collectors, because few of us understand how important it is to differentiate one recording from another. Because of this, there cannot be a system we can all agree on to label the recordings, and therefore, things are a complete mess. At the moment, Queen collectors are divided into two groups:
Group A) Those who acquire a show and label it with a date and city, which is the majority of collectors.
Group B) Those who research into which version they are acquiring before they acquire it. They try to find out if it's from a silver release or a private tape, and if possible, what the tape generation is. They then acquire the recording, label it properly, and then distribute it while ensuring that it will circulate as what it was originally labeled as. For example, Dallas 78 (which actually has different lineages for each disc, because one of the two master tapes deteriorated over time - but thankfully the bootlegger backed it up):
Disc 1: AMPEX 90 normal bias cassette > cassette > PC > EQ > CDR > FLAC level 8
Disc 2: AMPEX 90 normal bias cassette > PC > EQ > CDR > FLAC level 8
I've seen this recording pop up twice on QZ since it was originally shared on Dime, and both times the lineage wasn't attached. Maybe they were converted to mp3 and FLAC again, or maybe they were left untouched... who knows, because nobody said where the recording had been.
The people who care about these things are in the minority. When my new website is put up, I will surely have a list of all available recordings (in great detail) along with audio samples, as a first step of cleaning up this disgraceful mess which is the current Queen collecting situation. Titles are the least of our problems right now. We need to know what we're putting titles to!
We need to unite as a collecting community and figure out exactly which version is which, and weed out the obsolete versions. Then we need to have one definitive cover artwork for each recording, so someone can instantly know which version of a show they're getting, and be confident they are getting the best version available.
People are obviously afraid to speak up about these things, because they think they'll hurt the feelings of someone who is sharing a recording or cover art. But we need to speak up. We can't have people doing things individually. We need to work together as a collecting community if we want to change this situation for the better. But we're not going to get anywhere until enough people realize there is a problem.

If we have 10 different covers for 1 or 2 audio recordings of a show, how can we know which recording is which? Full post (and hopefully a discussion) here: link[quoted from the "Artwork by Dr3amSl33p"-Thread]
ok. I understand... and I totally agree with that problem.
but some questions still remain for me:
Would just adding the lineage do the job? Or in other words: May adding the lineage be the only thing I could do when I´ve got not enuff information with a request?
What Im trying to say is that the lineage may be the most (only?) important thing about a shared recording.
Cause regarding the Title I see some problems which may hard to be solved. First of all there are more and more recordings shared which are edited or stitched together from different sources. The old title (if there had been any) would be outdated imo. So I see no problem in inventing a new one if the lineage is on the cover (I have to admit that I forgot that one on the Leiden cover.. 8( ).
Furthermore often enough no "bootleg"title is posted with the announces which make it hard for me to decide. Plus the fact that I do create a lot of covers here on request without having the recording myselves.
So if its not just about the lineage I need detailed information about the title as well.
At the moment we have more of "10 recordings and 2 covers" then vice versa..
Don´t get me wrong.. I totally agree with you that Queen-stuff seems to be messed up atm and I would really like to help clearing things up.
but if you have a look at the Leiden-Announce for example you may understand the problem I have to deal with -- two different sources, that makes two different lineages and no title posted with it (how if its a new compilation.. :-/ lol).
So in the past I decided for myself to make a rather neutral cover that fits most of the recordings or at least the information given in the announce.
Anyways I agree with you that sth has to be done to change this situation... but I´m still not really sure how. :-/
|The Real Wizard
|I am very happy that you posted. Right now I'm heading off to bed, but I look forward to discussing this with you very soon. You create excellent art, and I'll be happy to work with you (and hopefully many, many others)!!|
|on my way up
|i'm concerned about this situation aswell.I used to download mp3 shows from queenzone without any serious collecting intentions.That has changed , so now I want to have the best version available from each show I get. It's just a fact that many Queen fans don't understand anything about collecting bacause they only know the Queen collecting world which is a mess as Bob said. I found out more about collecting by visiting the trader's den. I found out that the shows shared there have a lineage and sound good:-)we should indeed all work together to achieve the same situation for Queen collecting. So we should inform people about the importance of detailed information attached to a recording|

|I don't create artworks 'cause I'm not so good in graphics... and I usually (actually always) use the covers shared here by Dr3amSl33p...
But often there are some confusions about, not only the lineage (which is VERY important) and the title of the bootleg, but also putting the correct titles of the songs, because often 2 or 3 songs are all included in a medley, for example...
I think we've to create a list of all the live recordings shared here including all the details about the sources, the titles and, very important (if there is), the best version available.
Anyway, I know it is the less important problem we've to handle (that of the titles of the songs), but that's a way to show my complete agreement with you (first of all with SirGH).
...and many thanks for your artworks!!!!
Sorry for my English...
|Wow! This is the first show in NY.!
Thank You Very Much!
|Thanks a lot.
I only have mp3 sourced, so this is an upgrade. :-)
|Ginger..thank's a lot..hear you soon I guess!|
|I agree with you Bob and Dr3amsl33p...lineage is very important and should always be included if information is there, I always do my best on my website when it comes to lineage about my recordings.|
|I wouldn't entirely blame collectors - how many different bootleg titles are Hammersmith, Mannheim & Rainbow on?
Then there are the compilation bootlegs....Tutti Frutti & Ogre Battle together at last on one disc!

Penetration_Guru wrote: I wouldn't entirely blame collectors - how many different bootleg titles are Hammersmith, Mannheim & Rainbow on?A fair point. But still, if these versions are shared here, they should be properly labeled, which most of the time they are not. How many times have we seen "Announce - Hammersmith 75 mp3" here? That could have come from a silver cd, video, or someone's tape of the umpteenth radio broadcast. If we have a definitive list of the silvers including audio samples to listen to, one would know whether or not something is an obsolete version and thus if it's worth acquiring. But for Hammersmith, it needs to become known that there is no single source with the complete show, so the definitive version of this show would have to be a compilation - one that everyone would be aware of and want to have. And if an upgrade came out, then everyone would find out, and then a new compilation would be made, which everyone would get. This is the kind of communication we need to have together.
Then there are the compilation bootlegs....Tutti Frutti & Ogre Battle together at last on one disc!I think I can speak on behalf of the majority and say we want to have the most complete recording of each show. Therefore, most compilations can easily be weeded out and labeled as obsolete. Most silver bootlegs aren't any decent anyway, so the bulk of the work we're going to do is organize the tapes that have come from private collections... not the silvers. The silvers will be the easy part!
|Ginger - Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
SirGH - I look forward to your website and hope I'm able to contribute something - anything - to the Queen collecting community. Gonna eventually have to unpack and sort through my boxes of Queen stuff I've been hauling around for about 20 years now...
|Thanks Ginger. Not time to read all the info in the posts now, catch up later though. Looks very interesting.|

|THANKS GINGER !
this is brilliant, but could you or Bob (Sir GH) or anyone else tell me according to Greg Brooks Queen Live updated book the first show at the Uris Theatre included 5 other songs missing from this post including white Queen and Hangman, any thoughts ?

With the greatest respect, Queen Live is littered with errors and is not always the best reference tool.
I'd just like to go back to the collecting discussion; with regards to lineage - I agree with the need for full details to made available, but it's not just here that it is a problem. When Sao Paulo 81, Paris 84 and Berlin 86 were shared on Dimeadozen, lineage was not available there either....whenever I have traded I have always tried to ensure lineage details are shared as and when possible, but with those shows it is impossible to do so (and thus could make future trades difficult).

In fact, about half of the 70s setlists are wrong in that book. Don't get me going on it!! As for this particular recording, we're sticking with May 7 as the date, because it has circulated as that date for over 15 years now. When someone who knows better comes along, then we will reconsider if need be. Sometimes you just have to go with "tradition", so to speak.

But the difference between Dime/TTD and QZ is that most people on QZ don't even know what lineage means.
|WOW, can't believe someone actually posted this.
I was at this concert. A bunch of us from Hunter College went down to watch Ian Hunter and the Hoople. Hard to believe that they were the headliners.
Never had heard Queen before that. Brian May just blew that little theatre up.
Can't wait to listen to the downloads.
Down in the city , just Hoople and Me !!!
|hmm.. nice to see this topic on the first page again... and not only because of the announce..^^
btw still waiting for a reply on my mail, Sir_GH. ;-)

|Thank you Very much|
|Hello. Can someone seed this please ? i´m almost finished. Thanks people
|Could someone reseed this one please?
thanks a lot in advance
|Is there any chance someone could seed this? I'm trying to collect as much early Queen as possible and this would be a nice addition.
Thanks in advance!
