Queen ‘Lazing On A Sunday Evening’ 76042 (‘Crowning Glory’ + ‘Geisha Boys’)

Queen LOASE

The end of the tan MARC title labels had come, it seems. Check the next posts for the labels.

By the middle of 1976, MARC had caught up with the band’s second Japan tour and released their second Queen title much closer to the concert date. Another end of tour performance – respectable but not reaching Queen’s brilliance of their final tour performance.  The recording is slightly distant but still more than decent.

Side 1:  Bohemian Rhapsody (tape & rock part) / Ogre Battle / Sweet Lady / White Queen / Bohemian Rhapsody (verses) – Killer Queen  – The March Of The Black Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody (reprise) / Bring Back That Leroy Brown

Side 2: The Prophet’s Song / Stone Cold Crazy / Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon / Liar / In The Lap Of The Gods…Revisited 

The likely set list that evening:

Bohemian Rhapsody (tape & rock part)
Ogre Battle
Sweet Lady
White Queen
Flick Of The Wrist
– Bohemian Rhapsody (verses)
– Killer Queen
– The March Of The Black Queen
– Bohemian Rhapsody (reprise)
Bring Back That Leroy Brown
Brighton Rock
Son And Daughter
The Prophet’s Song
Stone Cold Crazy
Doing All Right
Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon
Keep Yourself Alive
Liar
In The Lap Of The Gods…Revisited
Now I’m Here
Big Spender
Jailhouse Rock
God Save The Queen

This is the only available source for this night. “A second audience source from this show exists, reportedly the complete show, but it has been said that it will never leave the taper’s hands. ” [queenlive.ca]  That, of course, is rather sad.

    Quickly,I once had this boot :Van Halen-Story of Joe 2lp[ the insert was a drawing of Joe – Joe was a shotgun!!-Clear wax -no labels,1980 or so-told it was made in the northwest U.S. w/79-XXX matrix,same people that made Jimi-Wink of an Eye????Stamped color of wax on side of front cover,did you ever Master List these guys???? Your site is the absolute best of it’s kind !!And I need that Cream- A Group Called…Cream-Old euro issue w/ women on cover!Thanks for your time,Carlo

    • That Cream LP was last sold in February of last year for 52 Euros (then $69 – oh how that has changed now…) – only 1 bid came in. A super rare item but relatively easy to find in digitized form.

      The VH boot is called this is JOE – live Seattle, April 12 or 13, 1979

      Decent audience recording. Apparently the Light Up The Sky CD on Amsterdam AMS 735 used the vinyl as the source.

      No, I did not review this label (do they even have a name?) before. The not very sophisticated front cover design does indeed look familiar, as does that stamp.
