This recording is a compilation of 2 sources; a first generation cassette is the source of most of the concert, the rest is filled with an inferior source, which sounds obiviously worse. This compilation was made by Bob, the owner of the mighty QueenLive.ca Overall qualityi is Vg+ as for the 1st gen source, the other source is Vg- to me. There are no better words than Bob's to describe this concert:

Everyone entering the venue was searched thoroughly and all batteries were confiscated, as it seems the authorities wanted to prevent people from recording the show. However, there was a stall set up inside the venue re-selling the same batteries for ridiculous amounts of money!

In the middle of Now I'm Here, Freddie reacts to the rowdy audience throwing shoes at the band: "I've never seen so many shoes on stage. It's like bloody Chelsea Cobbler, I tell you!" Chelsea Cobbler is a men's shoe store in London.

At the end of the show, he says, "Thank you for the shoes! Adios amigos, you motherfuckers! You bunch of tacos, goodbye!"

The band would recall this show to be one of their worst experiences. At some point during the show, since it was so overcrowded, people ended up tearing down the gate into the stadium.

The vocal harmonies in Killer Queen are picture perfect tonight.

Brian breaks a string near the end of the solo in Bohemian Rhapsody, but he manages to keep it in tune (a huge challenge with floating tremolo).

An audience video of this show exists, and it apparently contains the overwhelming majority of the show.
