Queen ‘A beautiful album’ OG-860 & 877

Queen ABA LQueen Aprilfool OG 860Queen Now I'm here OG-877

49 mins and 41 seconds of Queen’s very first concert in Japan

Side 1 has: Procession; Now I’m Here / White Queen / Doing All Right / In The Lap Of The Gods / Killer Queen / The March Of The Black Queen / Bring Back That Leroy Brown

Side 2: Stone Cold Crazy / In The Lap Of The Gods… Revisited / Big Spender / Modern Times Rock ‘n’ Roll / Jailhouse Rock / See What A Fool I’ve Been / God Save The Queen

I assume “Modern Times Rock’n Roll” was omitted due to an oversight on the side 2 label of the reissue but is actually present on the LP.

From queenlive.ca, confirming the micro-quantities pressed by OG: “This was released in 1975 not long after the show. It was the first Queen bootleg released in Japan, and is one of the most valuable Queen bootlegs of them all.

Less than 100 copies of the “Aprilfool” version exist, and under 30 copies of the “Now I’m Here” version exist.

This recording captures a fair chunk of the show, with a few seamless edits between songs. The quality improves on side B, beginning with Stone Cold Crazy.”

Two audio sources for this concert exist and they have been merged by collectors to create the best-sounding recording possible.
