Tokyo, Japan
Nippon Budokan
May 9, 1985

This is an upgrade of the already fantastic recording from Queen's last ever show at the Budokan, from the good folks at the Wardour label. This show is one of my personal favourites, as Freddie Mercury's voice is unbelievably powerful on this night. This is surely the best show of the Works tour in my eyes (two days before the officially-released one, where Freddie's voice isn't quite so strong). Wardour claims their copy is from the master, and I have no reason to doubt it. The sound is impeccably clear, with no flaws in sight.
