The masterpiece which recorded the best performance in “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR” is a brush up. It is appeared in the permanent preservation press CD.
The masterpiece was recorded “March 7, 1975 Milwaukee performance”. It is a full scale audience recording. This recording is just a treasure. Even though, “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR” full-length recording is valuable, but the sound is also wonderful, and above all the show itself is a masterpiece of the best. Overseas QUEEN specialized sites are also called “the best records in the initial QUEEN”, and because of its so much greatness, once only core collectors were kept secret. It is a legendary recording of a legendary incisor arm that can not be heard even if the mania in the world wants to hear it. This work, brush up the best version of such historic recordings. It is one piece of permanent preservation with the highest peak quality ever.
Before the content to be worried about, the position of the show first. Speaking of 1975, there was also the first visit to Japan in QUEEN history, but let’s confirm it from the date at that time, including it.

● 1974
・ October 30-November 20: Britain (19 performances)
“November 8” SHEER HEART ATTACK “sale”
・ November 23-Dec 13: Europe (11 performances)
● 1975
・ February 5-24: North America # 1 (16 performances)
-March 5-April 6: North America # 2 (21 performances) ★ ★ Coco ★
・ April 19-May 1st: First visit to Japan (8 performances)

This is the whole picture of “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR 1974-1975”. The last place was Japan, but this work was the concert that hits the third performance of “North America # 2” just before that. As a matter of fact, initially, “North America # 1” and “North America # 2” were to be linked. However, Fredy’s throat breaks down on the tour. 7 performances were canceled by the doctor stop. The Milwaukee performance of this work was a show of repartitioning that will be immediately after its return.
This work that recorded such a show is a wonderful vintage audience that also makes it legendary. Above all else, the strength and fine detail of the core that goes straight through. It is not a type that is mistaken for the sound board, but the feeling of air is clear and vivid to every corner. Every guitar and riff, and every stroke of the drum, it’s pretty clear, and Freddie’s singing voice is clear without hesitation. Even if Roger and Brian’s choruss overlap, even one word of each person can be felt. Furthermore it is wonderful to the audience noise. Although it sucks in the enthusiasm that makes you feel the popularity of rising upwards, it is only a song interval. The loud brows come and go and they are silent, listening to bite one song and one song. The atmosphere that is not unique to America is unique only in the early days, and it is easier to hear than Japan, which has suddenly become a popular explosion.
The vividness is supported by the greatness of the recording itself and the master freshness of the excellent. Speaking of 70’s audience, dubbing mark and tape yore are like fate, but it is hardly felt in this work. It is only the tape change part of the guitar solo middle stage to say that it has deteriorated only. Though coming for the end of the tape, it takes about a minute for a while, but other than that, it seems that there is no deterioration that seems to be deterioration, and it seems like the DAT recording is continuous. The vivid freshness is felt abundantly because it has been kept secret for many years.
Moreover, this work brush up the name recording. The exact pitch is, of course, more important than that. Of course, since it is a legendary recording, I do not do unfashionable mane such as dirty with sloppy sound pressure earning. The point of this work is a rather natural feeling. I tried to reproduce more “sound that would have been on the scene” while leaving the recording itself clear and beautiful sounding to the fullest. In the original sound, there was an unnatural feeling and vintage feeling in the sound of the midrange such as vocals and guitars, but it was organized. The result is a sound that not only feels more natural but also has a better sense of separation.
It is a masterpiece decision only with a full recording with the sound that updated the highest peak, but the biggest point of this work is in the show itself. This is already a great daimyo performance. As mentioned earlier, it was a cancellation complaint due to Freddie’s upset, but his voice after rest is in excellent condition. The treble also stretches comfortably and is powerful up to one word. Moreover, high tension. Freddie sings in a manner that feels like his voice comes out as he likes, and spells the melody in various voices as if trying out the limits of the throat. Of course, Freddie’s revival is also directly linked to the musicians’ instigation. The guitar is also in excellent condition, with a powerful and sharp rhythm team. The expert site that researches QUEEN deeply and deeply can enjoy a great performance of the convincing that it calls “the most excellent record”.

Sounds, performances, and early masterpieces that shine. A treasure that the mania wants to hide is the one that has been permanently saved by updating the highest peak. Speaking of “SHEER HEART ATTACK TOUR”, in recent years the official work “LIVE AT THE RAINBOW ’74 (CD compilation)” has become widely known, but the show of its peak is still only for mania. One of the legends that you can experience it. Please enjoy yourself with the press CD.
