I remember joining the forum back in 2004-05 and seeing something new daily was a given. I apologize if there is a thread out there already, but what are we missing still as far as audio/video recordings, that we know DO exist, and what might POSSIBLY exist?

For me, I'm hoping to hear more of the Rod Stewart collaboration on Let me Live, and hopefully a live recording of Jesus if one exists.

Brian: No, You Can't...

Gary Taylor mentioned a lot of uncirculated U.S audience tapes in his book. You also have Newcastle 1975, 7/25/1970(A reel-to-reel supposedly exists), Stirling 1974(Unplayable state), a longer version of Boston 1976(1st night), 2nd Glasgow and 1st Liverpool 1977, Lyon 1979, Paris 1979(1st night), Kobe 1979, and Manchester 1979. Most U.S tapes are listed collectively. There could be Providence 1977 tapes but nothing has ever come of them

In my opinion I can't understand why you'd rather hear Jesus live instead of The Night Comes Down. The De Lane Lea version of Jesus is probably how the song sounded live with,just the three instruments on the recording (electric guitar, bass guitar and drums) and the longer solos. The Night Comes Down recording features acoustic guitar alongside those instruments so it'll be interesting to hear how much different the song was played live as they were limited to only three instruments (electric guitar, bass guitar and drums). It might've completely changed the feel of the song, it's really intriguing.

Maybe, just maybe Queen played Jesus live in the vain of how they recorded their demo. In the Black Sabbath style, to my imagination this can sound live superb and very loud!

I believe (not based on facts, but just because I think it's logic) that Brian May owns a shitload of soundboards shows that are in his archives.
He kept so many memorabilia as showed on the Bohemian Rhapsody film documentary, like stage outfits so it would only be logical that he kept also soundboard shows as a souvenir.
Stories of soundboard shows being erased after listening one time after a show I simply do not believe when you know how precious the music was to them.
Plus there are many Live Killers shows in the official archive, also Hyde Park which needs to be released.

But I am mainly interested in live shows, not discarded tracks, they were discarded for a reason.

My hope is that for the 50th anniversary of Queen, publish everything that is publishable and that is not yet official. Brian and Roger are not immortals and should understand that even fans of first and second hair are not ....I think...

I agree with that idea, you don't include something on an album when you are unsure of its quality. Still, the few gems we know about are enough to realise there could be some songs very much worth listening to.

I mean, "Too Much Love Will Kill You" remained unreleased for about 7 years since they recorded it, and perhaps we might have never known Queen's version if they hadn't released MIH. Brian could very well have ignored the track on a whim and every version remain hidden forever. "Let Me In Your Heart Again" took 30 years to see the light and it was worth it. So many things deserving a release, we can't probably imagine.

I'm ready for more unknown songs, however inferior they turn out to be. I'm sure that whatever's left in the archives can't generally live up to the standard of what's been released posthumously, but just looking at what's featured in Freddie's box set, I know I would gladly give my money for an equivalent Queen collection.

I'm sure in the future we'll hear some new tracks "accidentally discovered". Every couple of years Queen Prod. has to re-re-re-release another Greatest Hits or another "improved" lp. I think the next "lost" track will be 'Man In Fire", of course we'll not get the original recording, but some pastiche of old and new recordings (like on "News If The World").

I'm quite the opposite regarding unreleased stuff. Only live stuff that is previously undocumented does it for me. Recently we've had FFMS and SOTS which were only rumours before and I'd love to hear more in that vein. I can imagine there might be a few lurking in the vaults somewhere. Bog standard live material gets very samey after a while especially as they didn't really go off the main set much.

Unfinished / early takes / demos of material we know is where the magic lies for me. Actual unpublished songs could fall into lots of categories and shouldn't be dismissed as crap just because they weren't released at any point.

There are legal and personal issues with these unpublished songs.
If you don't want to pay a single cent, or to be associated again with someone you don't like, then why put yourself in a frustrating situation by digging into your past?
In fact the mind will help you to forget that you even have unpublished songs. I'm talking about Brian, of course.

Ego beats any other card, as it was always the case with Queen.

I think not. The anthology will eventually be out, would prefer it sooner but this is life. Funny one speaks of egos when seems to have biggest himself. I talk of course about your stupid answer to me on post about Hammersmith show 1979.
