5.0 out of 5 stars A True Live Album, 22 Nov 2001
This review is from: Live Killers (Audio CD)
There are very few truly great live records; This is one of them. Recorded on the European leg of the Jazz tour in 1979, it gives a real taste of Queen at their most exciting raw peak. Kicking off with the alternate version of We Will Rock You, the album largely preserves the running order of the live show of the time. The medley on disc 1 shows off the sheer inginuity of band, with the guitar & vocal gymnastics of Freddie's Get Down Make Love an unusual but stunning high point. This gives way to the famous accoustic set and a stomping rendition of Keep yourself alive. Don't stop me now was the single of the day, folowed by the subtlety of John Deacon's Spread Your Wings. Brighton Rock contains Brian's full solo, possibly the most distinctive guitarist to come out of the UK in the 70's. Then the inevitable Bohemian Rhapsody, the pounding energy of Tie Your Mother Down and encore song Sheer Heart Attack. The Concert ends as it always did with We Will Rock You and We are the Champions, I guarantee you'll be exhausted just listening to this album. The only regret is that the rest of the material from that tour has never been added back to the album, songs such as Sweet lady, Son & Daughter and the Prophets Song were not included, as the live set would normally have stetched to a triple album on most nights.
This is as good as it gets, lights down, volume up, Queen live in your living room!
