Queen RoIO review: A Night at the Music Hall (Boston 1976)

I just acquired RoIO of a Queen concert which was recorded on January 30, 1976 at the Boston Music Hall – now known as the Orpheum Theatre – in Boston, Mass. The RoIO is titled A Night at the Music Hall. It was recorded during Queen’s A Night at the Opera Tour.

Set list (as included in RoIO):

  1. Bohemian Rhapsody (fast part)
  2. Ogre Battle
  3. Sweet Lady
  4. White Queen (As It Began)
  5. Flick Of The Wrist
  6. Bohemian Rhapsody (intro)
  7. Killer Queen
  8. The March Of The Black Queen
  9. Bohemian Rhapsody (conclusion)
  10. Bring Back That Leroy Brown
  11. Brighton Rock
  12. Guitar Solo
  13. Son And Daughter
  14. The Prophet’s Song
  15. Stone Cold Crazy
  16. Doing All Right
  17. Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon
  18. Keep Yourself Alive
  19. Seven Seas Of Rhye
  20. Liar
  21. In The Lap Of The Gods (Revisited)
  22. Now I’m Here
  23. Big Spender/Jailhouse Rock/Be-Bop-A-Lula/God Save The Queen

For an audience recording, the audio quality is absolutely FANTASMIC! Most of the live Queen material that I’ve been exposed to has been limited to the 1979 (Live Killers) through 1986 (Live at Wembley Stadium). I have seen the 1974 Rainbow Theatre concert on Google Video, and while it was entertaining, there just wasn’t enough material; but of course Queen was still in its infancy. I had never heard or seen a full Queen concert from the 1975-1978 years, so to hear this concert was a blessing. For this time period (my favorite Queen era), THIS was the definitive Queen setlist.

This concert was acquired from a torrent file found on Queenzone.com, the definitive source for Queen news. I will not post any links to the torrent file, so if you want it, visit Queenzone.com and register with the site’s forums.
