Review by: thewalruswasjohnOn 30 Sep 2010 at 20:55 CET
It just got a li'l better... Possibly Lapinski's finest hour. This was one of those lucky nights were a stellar recording met with the band just giving that little bit extra and outshining themselves, performance-wise.

These are the "liner notes" from the person who did the upgrade (not me):

=========================================================
Some of my favourite recordings in 2009 include various shows from the excellent Dan Lampinski Tapes Series. This early Queen recording is top of my list; what an absolute corker! It brings back memories of seeing them at The Liverpool Empire in the UK during the same tour.
Well I waited for 6 months for a speed-fixed version of Volume 3 to turn up, unfortunately in vain, so I finally decided to do it myself. This is the result. It turned out so nice that I thought I would share it with you nice folks at Dime (notice I said 'nice' LOL). Now I know I risk life & limb by posting my own remaster of such a highly praised recording on Dime (with ~2400 downloads since June 2009!!), but in my defence the originators, Kev & Carl, did say we should feel free to have a go.

The original recording was in excellent shape but IMHO did need some attention to fix a few issues, mainly:
- Wrong speed/pitch (I determined that the original plays +51 cents sharp)
- some rough edits due to cassette swap & stop
- slightly excessive tape hiss
- insufficient bass response (IMO)

The basic details of the mastering applied to the original 24bit/96Khz version from djscomics seed on Dime (using Wavelab6) are as follows:
A: edit/fill/crossfade cassette swap & stop points (to disguise the abrupt/rough edits; all between music tracks)
B: Fix mono portion of Track 1 'Bohemian Rhapsody (Opera)'
C: Time stretch by 103.1% (equals -51 cent pitch change)
D: Slight de-hiss
E: EQ / Multiband Compression / Limiting (-0.2dB max) / Dithering to 16bit (bass boost & tighten up the sound)
F: WAVs edited to fit on to 2xCDRs (with overlap) plus fade in/out (using the same CD break point as the original)
G: track split (I've added a few more track breaks as per track list above)

Please note that this remaster reflects my own personal preferences with respect to listening to live shows. Remastering has been done to polish the raw master recording with the aim of enhancing the listening experience. This includes some editing of the original to disguise the cassette swap & stop points to make it seamless (i.e. prior to 'The Prophet's Song', 'Now I'm Here' & 'Hey Big Spender') as well as some tweaks to 'polish up' the overall sound. So if you prefer virgin recordings, unspoiled by any such amateur 'dabbling' then do not join in on this one, you can still get the original recording.

I will attach links in the torrent comments to a multi-track mp3 sampler of my remaster (as well as one for the original, for direct comparison) to help you decide if you fancy grabbing this one. IMO for sound quality this is a solid 9 out of 10 (= A-) and an upgrade to the original ... but I would never put that in writing of course ... Doh! .. I just did ;-D
