LDB Special Series #448 (RLR collection)

Out of my 17,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

That was a tricky one. The RLR tape was simply marked "Tokyo 1983" but of course no japanese tour on that year existed. So I transferred
the tape and by listening to the tracklist it was obvious that this was from the �82 tour. But then Freddie greets the audience of
Osaka. A quick look to the japanese dates of 1982 and...no Osaka there! I am not the biggest specialist in the Japan geography, so I had
to look a bit before finding out that Nishinomiya is a suburb of Osaka. Done deal, I could then trace back the exact venue and date.

This is clearly sourced from a vinyl boot. The only one that seems to exist is called "This Is Not" so I suspect this is the one. The show
is not complete (XX tracks are the ones missing) but the sound is exceptionally good for a vintage audience recording. Also, that was a
kind of special show where the band played a couple of unusual covers. Freddie refers to the fact they hadn�t played Osaka for a long time;
infact the previous time was back in 1976.

Nice show, I like the 1982 tour. The band was tight and in good shape. Enjoy!

At least, because it is sourced from an existing boot, it is unlikely that some dealers will sell this one, as it happened for some previous
Queen shows I uploaded here (hence Queen is in my uploading blacklist along with Dream Theater and some other artist).
