This is one of Queen's finest and most thrilling shows EVER!

We should really find a way to convince the band/QPL to release the COMPLETE mono soundboard they OBVIOUSLY have for this concert. It'll probably sound the same as Sleeping on the sidewalk from the recent release (which is absolutely wonderful!).
How can we make this happen, folks? Let's start a campaign and get noticed on the social media (by posting a YouTube video of this White Christmas all over twitter and facebook??).
Maybe Chief Mouse should do his magic and create a video for it at his usual high level... If we're clever the global press can be reached. I really believe this is possible.

What do you all think?


Petition?

Seriously, it all comes down to him.

Indeed, it all comes down to Brian so we have to find the right way to reach out to him, in a way so that he gives thought to it and can be convinced.

And that's why we need some sort of action with many people participating...

Nice Xmas present!
The performance is quite embarrassing,
he takes the verse with a note too high, and when at the end of the verse he realizes that he will never get there, he sings a lower octave.

Bloody hell lol. Freddie isn't immune to criticism, I know that - but FFS, take this for what it is: a bit of fun at a Christmas show. A brand new recording sees the light of day after 40 years and we have a track we've never heard Freddie sing before. A truly momentous occasion. And you pan it....

Merry Christmas ya arse :p

bootLuca has a point here / It really is a gem and when you hear the "...and may all your Christmases be... " and then you just want so much to hear Freddie for the high note and give a big ending to the song aaand.... he chooses the lower octave.

Well... and to think that we could hear that in an excellent quality had not QPL vetoed against it....

Unbelievable! FIVE new recordings in one year. First we get the earliest known NOTW show (Detroit 1977), than what people have been wanting for over a decade, a brand new Crazy tour show (Liverpool 1979) than a full version of the "Chest Wig" show (Nagoya 1975), then we get one from the mostly undocumented period between Dallas and NYC (Providence 1978) and now we end the year with one of the most famous uncirculated gems in Queen bootlegging (this one)! My sincere thanks for all those who have helped bringing these pieces of history out of the attics and into this forum.

Who knows what shows can circulate next? A 1970-1972 concert? Gothenburg 1982 (opening night of HS tour)?, An earlier Game Tour show (6/30-7/5)?, another Sun City concert? The possibilities are endless!

Indeed a true gem!
The point is that in my opinion this performance is not perfect enough for the QP standards....

You say that, somebody (presumably BHM or RMT) edited Freddie's Wembley '86 night two vocal improvisation ahead of its use in the Q+AL 2017 shows. It cuts out the note where his voice cracks - given how high he goes, it's hardly something to censor...

Indeed.

It sounds like they threw it together last minute (Mercury even says they "cooked it up in the dressing room"), and Brian started in the wrong key. But they still do a decent enough job of it.

Even with this little folly it's still one of the greatest Queen shows ever. They just give a little extra on this night.

I totally agree with Luca. It is a nice moment but i'm not surprised the ultraperfectionnist Brian May refused to include it in the box. ;)
