My initial sampling of the show told me it is an excellent-to-superb sounding recording. I really think the whole recording is likely this way too but since I have not heard the show yet I cannot say for sure.

I really like this era of Queen and the songs they played between 1973 and about 1979 especially. They rocked and Brian May played his heart out on his guitar. They would have been a great band to have seen but I never got a chance unfortunately.
There is some very light clipping in the waveform of a few songs but it is nothing bad at all. The audio looked fine and there was no heavy clipping anywhere.
I like to make sure I am spelling song titles and other things correctly when I add them to a post. But tonight, other than a few I know were incorrect, I'm adding the song titles as they were on the info sheet I had for this show. This is a recent share (a month or two ago) on Dime and I know the audio comes from the collection of "yono66". Other than that, I cannot tell you much more.
The one thing that sticks out to me in this recording is the even mix and how well the full frequency spectrum is present in the audio. The lows and high are perfectly balanced and it sounds like this is a soundboard much of the time. Whoever the taper was had great seats for this show. The recording has great stereo separation too.
Alright, I'm done talking and I'm uploading the show. You won't be disappointed if you're a Queen fan by the sound in this recording or the performance from what I've heard as I prepared this post!
I hope you enjoy the show...
