Disc One - September 1971
De Lane Lea Studio
Queen's first demo tape from 1971!
Recorded in late 1971 at the De Lane Lea Studios in London.
These are actual demos.. Sound quality is very good as it came from the original tapes.
This is a special collector's item set meant for serious collectors of rare concert audio and video only.
Around September 1971, Brian May met up with an old friend, Terry Yeadon,
who was involved in the setting up of a new recording studio in Wembley called De Lane Lea. The studios needed musicians to try out the new equipment they had installed - and preferably a band who could play loud ! The deal was that the musicians would record using the equipment, and potential studio users would be on hand to hear and watch them.
In return for their services the band could record their demos for free. It was an opportunity not to be missed and, of course Queen jumped at it. Not only would they be able to make the all important demo tapes, but they would have ample occasion to meet producers and engineers, people who could be vital to their future. The rest is history.............This CD is a must have for any collector.

Queen perform this show for radio in front of a small studio audience. DJ Alan Black adds some commentary between songs. This radio broadcast (in quadraphonic sound) would lead to dozens of bootlegs. It was first broadcast on October 20, 1973. Freddie's voice is mixed down a bit behind the instruments but still a high quaity sbd recording you'll enjoy.
This is the earliest known soundboard recording of a live Queen concert.
