The last concert which "that 4 people" gathered, "Knebworth show on August 9, 1986". The ultra superb album that recorded the whole picture is appearing in permanent preservation press 2CD.

For the fans .... No, it's two stages that have heavy implications for rock history. Although this show is also adopted in the official board "LIVE MAGIC", it is too regrettable that it is a mixture with other performances, and the used songs were made scratchy by editing up to intense . This work is a live album that can fully experience such "last Freddie" without stagnation.
Also, for this collector this show is familiar even in name recording. There is a transcendent name recording that is said to "enter five fingers even in QUEEN's entire audience recording", and has been loved by the "Amsterdam label" ELECTRIC MAGIC "in the old days. Actually, this person who recorded this supernatural recording is the masterpiece of taper "Crazy S.". This work borrowed master cassette from his "Crazy S." himself again and re-digitized with the latest equipment of 2019.

That sound is exactly overwhelming. There is nothing wrong with the sound board because it is absorbing enthusiasm that reached the heyday again, but the core of the performance sound and the singing voice reaching straight goes on and the details are super clear. This will affect not only the master of the master but also the venue. The reason is that the outdoor stage was set up in "Knebworth Park". For that reason there is no wall or heaven that reflects the sound, causing no cloudiness or turbidity at all. Of course, it is not necessarily a good sound in the open air, but there is a risk of blurring at a distance or a sound flowing in the wind, but it is a skill of a good hand not to feel it. Whether you recorded on the immediate side of the PA, you can record the output directly. The terrible taste of such a name recording was even called "the ELECTRIC MAGIC" of Jen's fall, although it was called "the best 5 of QUEEN", this work is its original. The freshness of Ultimate Genes is overwhelming, the freshness of ringing and the glossiness of dubbing trace zero are totally different things. It is a transcendental sound that does not need the pillar of "at that time".
To tell the truth, I introduced the re-digital board "KNEBWORTH 1986 (Wardour-153)" of the same concept several years ago, but this time we succeeded in digitizing more beautifully with the evolution of equipment. However, the last board has been upgraded by refining remastering, it can not be said that this time it was born extremely. However, this time realizing a sense of unrivaled stability without digitizing hands. Although extremely slight instantaneous shaking and noise are processed, it is not exactly 100% itself, but it is a real real site sound sucked almost entirely from the original tape. Still it realized super high quality sound of remastered boards.

The final original QUEEN drawn with such transcendental sound. And the last Freddie. Another sound, one voice is a series of special moments. Besides, it is a wonderful masterpiece even if it makes that feeling nude. In the first place, "MAGIC TOUR" performed two performances at the Wembley Stadium which was a miracle site with LIVE AID, and was added specially for fans who could not enter yet. As a result, the audience became a large crowd of 150,000 people. Freddie, a genuine showman who says "The bigger the bigger the better," there is no reason for it to burn on this big stage. Due to the 4 day break just before, compared to the show in the second half of the "MAGIC TOUR", the voices also well out and well spirited. And if Freddie is doing great, there is nothing scary of QUEEN. Three other players also performed in a magnificent performance, and the wonderful performance that seems natural to be adopted as an official work "LIVE MAGIC" will flow without stagnation.
In the final highlight "We Are The Champions" Freddie makes tweets "I thank you all" and the audience returns "Thank you all". This is the last night. That is the document of the truth. However, there is no feeling of tragedy in this work. Freddie cries cheerlessly as usual and is singing satisfactorily. It seems to have told the members "I want to end it" after this show, but it was not "anymore" anymore "was done" ......... It is such a spreading show .
A super masterpiece of a live album that allows you to experience the whole story with the historical high quality sound. One to become a cultural heritage of rock. It is a decision to permanently save with a newly built board from the original master.

★ Queen's Freddie Mercury's last concert.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The main press 2CD is a decision board of a live album that draws the last stage of "that 4 people" with a miracle sound. However, I would like to witness Freddie's last brave appearance as well. Therefore, bonus attachment will be attached to the image collection which compiled the image of the same last show as comprehensively as possible.
The images contained in this work are roughly divided into two. Let's introduce each separately.

【Multicamera Pro Shot Collection】
First of all it is a collection of multi-camera / pro shots that appeared from Freddie's last show. This show was the last special performance of "MAGIC TOUR" to the last, it was not considered to be the last of Freddie at that time. However, shooting in a professional shot only for the super huge highlight performances that gather 150,000 people. It has been used in various documentaries and so on. This picture is a mania from overseas gathered such a fragmentary pro shot.
However, it is wonderful that it is not just a gathering of images. Each scene is carefully connected, the mood of the show has also been edited, the sequence is also time series. A crowd gradually gathering from the establishment of the venue, a member entering the venue with a helicopter, and Freddie and Brian warming up in a dressing room ... ... gradually increase the mood. And after the performance, five pro shots of five songs are spelled in the order of the actual show. Although one song is incomplete, the flow of the day is felt in the digest, it is like a nine-minute video clip with the theme of Nebworth performance.

【Full Screen Screen Shot】
Although it is the best professional shot, it can not be satisfied with the 9-minute digest. The second picture to appear there. It is a full audience shot of the last concert.
This video was loved as part of the sold press title "KNEBWORTH 1986 (Wardour-153)", and it is exactly a memorial masterpiece. The point is the angle. It is a screen shot that keeps staring at the huge screen on the scene from before the performance, almost like a pro shot. Of course, at the end of the era when Handycam cameras have become popular, the scene itself is not the beauty like the present. There is a lattice pattern like projected on a block fence, but still you can see the full show caught by the shooting staff at the site with multiple cameras. Moreover, its overlooking is superb. Sometimes the arm that the front customers raise up enters, but it is only saying "it is not zero." The appearance of the audience is almost not included in only the look line of sight, and in most scenes only the last brave appearance of Freddie is visible.

Even though the video alone is unnatural, this work has even better speech. Synchronizing miracle audience recording by Mr. Crazy S. same as main press press 2CD (Recording is 7 minutes longer than video, so the screen gets darker in part.) However, version differs from main press 2CD. It is not the latest digitization, it is a digitized version a few years ago, but still the most impressive is overwhelming. Anyway, Master Direct of Supernatural Recording, who was told that "I will enter the 5 th finger in all audience recording of QUEEN". Although it is slightly less than the main press 2CD, it is the difference whether to stand on the top of the mountain or stand on the highest rock at the top of the mountain.

Moreover, the scene of this recording and screen shot exquisitely fits. In the case of multiple cameras where scenes change various angles, sounds that are strongly distant from the distance or direction may cause discomfort per cut. However, "Crazy S." Master has a close feeling of not knowing the recording position. Therefore, whether the image is a dough-up or a long-distance spectacle, neither distance nor direction is concerned. It amplifies the shot feeling of the image many times.

It is genuinely true that QUEEN's last show is drawn with such beauty and sound. In the main press press 2CD, the performance was transmitted, but the persuasive power accompanied by the sight is another dimension. Freddie 's all - in - one action, and its smiling face and serious expression are all "last". Freddie sweeping the venue with "Tutti Frutti", taking off the jacket and playing "Bohemian Rhapsody". The breath feeling which drinks bitefully as a matter of course ... It can all be experienced with sound board sound and multi camera images.

This is the last site QUEEN who wanted to have fans all over the world. It is a video work that compiled a pro shot left from the single stage and a full screen shot. I witnessed the last brave appearance of Freddie and one that will fulfill the full experience of Memorial Show. Please enjoy with the main press press 2CD as much as you want.
