View Full Version : Trade this or not ?

2006-05-13, 11:03 AM
I suppose cd1 is a copy error because cd2 looks good, right or it's a lossy ? It will be quite strange and stupid - why cd2 will be come from different copy then cd1.
So, I don't know swap this recordings or not. Can someone help , please ?
I don't saw this recordings with this total time in better form. I must find version on MC but I don't know at know where...

like you said, disc 1 is lossy, disc 2 looks good from what I can say. really confusing how that could have happened but that's how it is. don't trade it and keep looking for a better source, its gotta be out there somewhere.

Yes, better copy must be somewhere :mad: I have shorter version - without audience chanting on some 2 last songs but quality seems to be worser or maybe it's my imagine :lol
Thanks for advice !

hmmm... maybe there were two tapers that night? just a guess

2006-05-14, 05:17 AM
no, no it's the same source - I hope will got in future version on tape :mad: :)

Also disk 2 seems mono [?]

yes it's mono. Recording come from Queen 'Crazy Tour' in 1979.

I don't wanted to make a new post so better wil be if I put this think here. Don't know is this one also is lossy or maybe MD ? There is no clicks etc but I'm realy don't know what to think about this (don't saw at know better version of this). Maybe people swap this but I suppose they are wrong:

that last one you posted is md for sure

2006-05-17, 08:31 AM
Ohh man Thank God ! So I can trade with this right ?
But how it's possible - this recording come from Tokyo from 1979 (!)

Someone out there probably archived that show to MD without knowing better, then it got back into the trading pool.

If that's the case, then I think it's recommended not to trade.

A lineage like:
mic>preamp>MD is ok

mic>preamp>dat>MD is not, if memory serves me correctly.

that's exactly it.

the Queen trading pool is especially infested with lossy sources. beware.

Thats why some group Queen traders create this forum http://forum.ultimatequeen.com/ and in future plan also create some small site ;)
