Nice recording of a very nice show; if we only could get a better source of this show, it would be awesome: I rate this as Very Good +, but after Brighton Rock the quality gets a little bit worse. Queen were on fire in '77 spring. The band played twice in Inglewood, a country near Los Angeles. This recording is from the second night.

Excerpts from QueenLive.ca:

 

After seeing Led Zeppelin at the Forum in 1975, Brian May vowed to play there, and his dream came true in 1977. This was the second of two nights.

After Somebody To Love, Brian says, "Thank you for making that a hit over on this beautiful coast. We appreciate that."

Freddie, before Sweet Lady: "Okay, I've got my glass of champagne. Have you got yours? I know I do this every time we're here but I think it's fun. Queen would like to drink a special toast to everybody here tonight. Cheers, Los Angeles! Thank you very much. May you all have champagne for breakfast tomorrow." He then pours some on the audience and says, "Pass it around."

Brian, before '39: "We don't usually do this acoustic stuff as you may have noticed, but we'll have a go this time. This is a song off the last album. It features Mr. Taylor coming up front; a rare appearance. He's over there somewhere. And the dancing toes of Mr. Mercury (Freddie laughs). It's called '39."

Freddie, after delivering a beautiful version of You Take My Breath Away: "And don't I think next time we come back, when we do come back we're gonna bring back an orchestra. What do you think?" The audience erupts. "We might just do that. Might prove interesting." He then refers to the crowd as "a sophisticated rock audience", much to their delight, before the band offer a killer version of White Man.
