Nice version of Liar on this show. Only Brian had some slight problems at 1:42, after the intro, and came in not in the right moment. And unexpectedly good Freddie's vocal improv just before "Mama I'm gonna be your slave" segment.

Also does anybody know what the intro songs which play during the beginning are? I'm not a huge blues fan, but I like them


I suppose the songs played are:
Eric Clapton - Easy Now
Derek & the Dominos - Key to the Highway

I wonder who chose them to play before the show begins.
Was there a huge fan of Clapton in PA staff members? Or, if it was a decision made by a member of Queen, I guess it was Brian's choice?

It's interesting to hear the audience's reactions. I was surprised that they had reacted even when the house music finished.
Also I heard an audience member near the taper saying "Pink Floyd is being played, isn't it?" during Procession.
I guess he suggested a link between Procession and the intro of "Dark Side Of The Moon" when he referred to Pink Floyd.
Maybe he was a Pink Floyd fan but he had never listened to Queen II.
At least this conversation indicates there was surely a young male rock fan who is interested in Queen at that time when Japanese Queen fans were for the most part young females.

My favourite part is the middle section of Liar, where Freddie sings "Yeah, yeah! Yeah, yeah! Come on! Nagoya! Nagoya! Nagoya! Aw-wow-wow..." to astonish the Japanese audience, like he would do it again in the next concert in Kobe.
Finally they go into "Mama, I'm gonna be your slave" section, but Freddie sings that line in a wrong key, D!
Moreover, Roger and Brian join in the chorus in D as well! It's really funny.

This is the most interesting song of this concert. Freddie did realise they were singing in a wrong key and he said something. Was it "Not D!" ?

It usually is up to the artist, but who knows what it was like in Japan in the 70s - it was a whole different world that hadn't really westernized, and they may have done things their own way.

It's interesting to hear the audience's reactions. I was surprised that they had reacted even when the house music finished.

Probably because that's when the house lights went out, and then everyone realizes the show is about to start. Always an exciting moment at a show to this day.

Also I heard an audience member near the taper saying "Pink Floyd is being played, isn't it?" during Procession.
I guess he suggested a link between Procession and the intro of "Dark Side Of The Moon" when he referred to Pink Floyd.
Maybe he was a Pink Floyd fan but he had never listened to Queen II.

Good observation ! And who knows, Procession may well have been influenced by the Dark Side heartbeat.

At least this conversation indicates there was surely a young male rock fan who is interested in Queen at that time when Japanese Queen fans were for the most part young females.

Yep - it wasn't until the 80s that Queen's audience really started to mature in Japan. They were more of a teenybopper thing in the 70s.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

Doing All Right @ 3:06

When Brian May's voice comes in.

Just magical, how their voices blended like butter.

It reminds me of the New York 12-2-77 tape, where the audience actually cheers at this moment in amazement that they could pull this off live.

He says "wrong key". He didn't have perfect pitch, but he did know it was wrong pretty quickly.

Amidst that he's trying to stop a fight in the audience (before the song, too). It made for a pretty loose and interesting version of the song. The "listen" part ended up being a good segue into his plea.

For the completists, I have merged the two tapes of the show together create a best possible complete version of Son And Daughter, as about 5 minutes of Brian May's solo was cut from the Wardour bootleg (how fortunate that one of only two songs on the inferior source is actually the one we needed).

Enjoy !
