This is my favorite concert. Quality is Excellent +, I think this recording should be released by Queen Production. Complete concert taped by the audience. In July 1979 Paul McCartney contacted Queen for a special gig to help the people of Kampuchea, a country devastated by the civil war. Queen accepted the opportunity and played on 12 December; a 2 LP bootleg of the festival was released in the early '80s, but it features only one track by Queen (Now I'm Here). 50 minutes of the show were broadcast on TV, apparently a 80 minutes version exists (stolen master copy, misses Mustapha,Keep Yourself Alive, the guitar solo and BohemiaRhapsody). This concert is amazing, the audience is fabolous and Queen are on fire; Brian plays his own version of Silent Night in the guitar solo! Highly raccomended show! And last but not least, this is the last gig with Freddie without his trademark mustaches :P
