Not a bad live album, not a brilliant one either. The performances are edited from numerous shows (a complete show with little to no editing would have made for a better album), the very loud 'bleeping' of expletives before 'Death In Two Legs' still grates on me after all these years, not very well mixed (despite these performance's being recorded on multi track tape). Sound quality is lacking on many tracks. On the plus side: The 2003 remaster has improved sound quality when compared with earlier CD and vinyl releases (though its still not that great a sounding album). It contains the stripped down 'vocals/acoustic guitar' arrangement of 'Love Of My Life' with wonderful crowd singing along at Freddie's request (one of the better recorded tracks). The inlay sleeve does a reasonable job of replicating the red and green artwork found on the original lp. Worth owning if you are a Queen completist. Casual fans would be better served by greatest hits vols 1 & 2 and perhaps a few studio albums.

Always the showmen, always going that extra mile. Quite breath-taking when you first hear it. 2 completely different versions of "We Will Rock You". The opening one which attempts to knock you off your seat in it's intensity. Things never really let up from there on in.
"Death On Two Legs", "I'm In Love With My Car", "Get Down, Make Love" (weird!), and the extended "Now I'm Here" - and that'sjust the first half! Coupled with "Dreamer's Ball" & "'39" and you're salivating at the prospect of the second disc.
Things carry on nicely on the second disc too. The brilliant "Spread Your Wings" from NOTW, "Brighton Rock" with Mr May's solo work, and of course "Bohemian Rhapsody" - why did they never play the first section? Things come to a nice quiet(!) conclusion with a rabid version of "Sheer Heart Attack" follow of course by "... Rock You" & "...Champions".
Listening to this you find that some things never changed much over the years. On the other hand it's a good record of where they were in 1979, just before the synths put in their first appearance.
Very good stuff indeed. Play it loud!

It is widely accepted (quite rightly) that Queen were the best live act this planet has ever seen - Freddie's showmanship and Brians scarily good guitar playing to name but a few reasons for this. Much fuss has been made of Queen's World Tours of 1984 and 1986, again quite rightly. But in order to fully appreciate Queen as a live band, you have to come to Live Killers.
This double album released in 1979 is a mixture of performances of the band's European tour of that year. The production may not have been superb, but you do not lose any aspect of the pure raw energy that Queen produced on stage in the 1970's.
Right from the opening chords of the 'fast' version of 'We Will Rock You' it is easy to see this album will not disappoint. This is followed by Freddie's excellent 'Let Me Entertain You' (as if he needed any permission!) and straight into the snarled vitriol of 'Death On Two Legs (dedicated to...)' This then is followed by a nice medley which was a common feature of their tours in the 70's and to a lesser extent the 80's. The end chord of 'Death On Two Legs' moves smoothly into the classic 'Killer Queen' which in turn moves seamlessly into 'Bicycle Race', then into Roger's 'I'm In Love With My Car' with the drummer singing his own song. How exactly Brian gets his guitar to do what it does in 'Get Down Make Love' I'll never know, but Queen were still adamant they used "no synthesisers" at this time, so it's all Brian. John Deacon's hit 'You're My Best Friend" provides some light relief until Brian's classic rocker 'Now I'm Here' which features some of Freddies 'singing lessons' with the audience - always a favourite at the gigs.

This double live album captures Queen at the very end of the 70's at the height of their powers, before their increased reliance on synthesisers in the following decade. While being compiled from various concerts hampers the feeling of the flow of a real Queen show the sound quality is good (especially considering the complex multi-track studio records being replicated by only 4 people), and the recordings have a real sweaty 'live' band feel rather than the overly-clean studio overdubbed live recordings that some bands issue.
Highlights and differences from the studio versions include the radically different 'fast' version of We Will Rock You; a medley combining Death On Two Legs, Killer Queen, Bicycle Race and I'm In Love With My Car; the Freddie/audience sing-along in Now I'm Here; the mini-acoustic set complete with comedy wind instrument vocal impersonations in Dreamer's Ball, the guitar version of Love Of My Life and Freddie taking lead vocals on '39; an epic version of Brighton Rock with new drum and guitar solo sections; and Freddie teasing the audience with the opening bars of Mustapha.

This is a great album, snapping at the heels of Live At Wembley for the title of Queen's best live album. It opens with the superb WE WILL ROCK YOU, rapped out to a backdrop of guitars, as opposed to the traditional satanic beat, and continues with LET ME ENTERTAIN YOU, obviously designed for the stage and acting as an over-the-top mood-setter that Queen have an uncanny knack of coming up with. Then the band plunges into the infamous rock n' roll medley, featuring four superb songs, notably I'M IN LOVE WITH MY CAR sung by Roger "on drums and tiger-skin trousers" Taylor and the deliciously diabolical DEATH ON TWO LEGS. The lean brutal GET DOWN MAKE LOVE is up next, which is OK bar the awful "harmonic" bit, and John "on bass and dazzling tie" Deacon's YOU'RE MY BEST FRIEND sums up the emotional side to Queen's music. NOW I'M HERE, present in almost every Queen concert from 1976 onwards, offers up some rapport between Freddie and an enthusiastic audience as well as skillful guitar work from axe-weilder and songwriter extraordinaire Brian May. The relaxed versions of LOVE OF MY LIFE and DREAMER'S BALL are enjoyable, as is the underrated '39, but they admittedly aren't a scratch on Queen's trademark anthem KEEP YOURSELF ALIVE, that blows the audience away with shape-shifting guitar handling and a fantastic solo by Roger. The next CD is even better, believe it or not. Kickstarting with Queen's most recent single (at the time) DON'T STOP ME NOW that leads into a classic John Deacon narrative song SPREAD YOUR WINGS, one of my favourite tracks beside KEEP YOURSELF ALIVE and TIE YOUR MOTHER DOWN, it leads the listener through every aspect of Queen's music.Read more ›
