Notes: This is the "Operatic Ecstasy" bootleg on the Wardour label, and they claim it's from a first generation tape. It's certainly an upgrade of the "Royal Opera Comes To Japan" bootleg. The sound may not be as clear as on the Osaka recordings, but the performance is a lot more solid all around. Freddie, in particular, has rested his voice after the Osaka gigs, and delivers a much more solid performance. Seven Seas Of Rhye is a nice surprise on this tour, and also a rare encore of "See What A Fool I've Been" make this recording a must-have. (Taken from original nfo file).
