Comments:  First Queen vinyl bootleg from this 'new' vinyl bootleg label. I haven't so far not played my copy do to it's sealed. Looks like it could bee from the officially VHS video tape which was included in the "Box of Trix". Released as TV-Shop only release, back in 1992. I will come back to this later. The video contains more tracks.
All in all, not the most interested vinyl bootleg, but not the worst one either. Only for collectors of vinyl bootlegs.
Queen did 2 concert at Rainbow Theatre in London this November. 19th. and 20th. Rumours say's they was recorded & filmed for a possible release of a live album, which was cancelled. However, It has never been confirm that both dates was filmed. I find it difficult that they hired a film team for 2 evenings so early in their carrier. Would have been to expensive for them I think. That's why I have written that this recording is from Nov. 20th. I find it more realistic it comes from this day, but I'm not 100% sure. It's just my own feelings. 
Recording is available on handful bootleg cd's & DVD's, in more complete form.
