Queen - Hammersmith Odeon 1975

This is the famous 1975 Queen Christmas concert at the Hammersmith Odeon, and it has been widely available throughout the web in many versions.
Although having some tracks edited I believe this is the best one in sonic terms. For me it's the best period of Queen and the recording is taken from a Westwood One Superstar Concert Series.

Sound Quality: 10

Source: Pre-FM

Track List:
01 Now I'm Here
02 Ogre Battle
03 White Queen
04 Bohemian Rhapsody
05 Killer Queen
06 The March Of The Black Queen
07 Bohemian Rhapsody (Conclusion)
08 Keep Yourself Alive
09 Brighton Rock
10 Son And Daughter
11 Liar
12 In The Lap Of The Gods

Officially released

Cool. The three first albums were Queen's finest moment, I agree.

I wonder if you could get ahold of some good Byron-era Uriah Heep shows?

There apparently are two "new" shows for them from 1971 - Zurich and Basel - the LOOK AT YOURSELF tour.

Thanks a lot - I used to have this on cassette taped from the radio, so great to get upgraded - nice choice of tracks from their hard rock period

Thanks for your comments.
Scion, I'll try to find some good Uriah Heep to post here. Those two shows from Switzerland came from audience sources I believe.

Thank you AtticRock, for me the first two Queen albums are by far the best they ever did. I love the prog aspect to the music and so glad it does not contain the awful 'Big spender'. I remember watching this show as an 'Old grey whistle test' special on BBC 2.

Happy Jack

Could you please re-upload your Queen downloads sometime? Thanks! Your blog is quite amazing!

Well, this one can't be reloaded it's an official album now.
As for the others please post a request in each one you would like to have.
I think some of them have working links but I don't have the time to check them all.
