Queen – Oakland, CA (07/14/80)

Oakland, USA
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
July 14, 1980

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

This is a third generation recording of an excellent early Game tour gig. The quality is superb, and surely an upgrade of all previous versions. Unfortunately the last track is TYMD, but at least we have most of the concert. Save Me cuts out at the end, so we’re missing Now I’m Here as well. It’s awesome to hear Freddie sing Need Your Loving Tonight like the record version, because his voice was in such good shape early on in the tour. For that song alone, this bootleg is worth obtaining, but the entire show has Freddie in magical voice. Brian’s guitar solo is a bit long and wandering, but he really does create some pretty things this night. Overall, this show is one of the very best.
