Editorial Reviews

2007 two CD set, the first official release of this amazing show, recorded and filmed at the Montreal Forum on July 21, 1982 during their Rock 'n' America tour. This was Queen's last North American tour with their original lineup Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. Recorded for posterity, this concert is world-class talents at the top of their game. The recording, long whispered about in chat rooms and bulletin boards, languished in music lawyer hell until earlier this year. Under the eagle eyes of the band, the album has been sequenced mixed, and mastered to the highest possible contemporary standards. It now stands in the pantheon, not just of great Queen live albums, but of the great live Rock albums. 28 tracks including 'Under Pressure', 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love', 'Killer Queen', 'We Are The Champions', 'Another One Bites The Dust' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Hollywood.

Being a Queen fanatic, I buy anything "new." But I was reluctant, at first, to purchase yet another live album from them. Especially since I saw this concert when it was calleed "We Will Rock You." I know that Brian May said that they had completely cleaned it up and raised the standard of the audio and video. I have yet to see the DVD, but I can say that Brian and the crew did an AWESOME job of it. And more than that, the actual performance is the BEST of all of the live stuff they've put out. I thought Live at the Bowl was A+. Well, this show is A+++.

There are some super gems on here. "Love of My Life" is sung completely by Freddie, which is a very rare thing. He doesn't seem happy about it, though. "They don't know it," he declares after singing the first verse. "That's all right," Brian responds, and then Freddie gives on of the best live vocal performances I've heard from him. "Save Me" is wonderful, completely topping the Bowl performance. I really think Queen were totally on because they were well rested (these two shows were a "one off" because they weren't on tour any more). "Under Pressure" "Let me Entertain You" "Flash (ACTUALLY live, not a tape) and "Play The Game" are all standouts.

My only gripe, and it's small, since the tracks sound great, is I do get weary of "We Will Rock You" "We Are the Champions" "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "Bohemian Rhapsody." Though, as I said, the tracks sound great, there are so many other great versions of these songs on other live albums. I think Brian said something about re-doing the Budapest concert next, and I really hope he doesn't. We have FAR too many post-Jazz live shows. I think there needs to be some News of the World Tour live album or something.

English rockers Queen have just released its fifth live album entitled Queen Rock Montreal.
This live recording and its off-shoot DVD was recorded and filmed at The Montreal Forum in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 24 and 25, 1981 (approximately ten years before the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury).
Not officially released on either vinyl or CD before, Queen Rock Montreal marks the first time the show is available on CD and/or vinyl. (It had been released previous as the concert film We Will Rock You).
Audio producers Justin Shirley-Smith and Kris Fredriksson returned to the original 24 track analog tapes recorded and originally mixed by 80s Queen co-producer Mack with The Record Plant Mobile Truck and created brand new regular stereo (for this CD and one of the two DVD mixes) and DTS 5.1 surround sound mixes (found on the DVD).
We kick off as the band hits the stage with the entrance music of "Intro" which sets the tone for the show. We then start off with a killer version of "We Will Rock You (fast version)" which is is stunning. Next is "Let Me Entertain You" which trumps either the Jazz version or Live Killers versions. We then slow things down with the ballad "Play the Game" which is stunning. Next is possibly the best version of "Somebody to Love I ever heard, only the versions from Earls Court 1977 and Houston Summit 1977 give it a run for the money. Next is a short but simple version of "Killer Queen" which is superb before we segue into drummer Roger Taylor's classic "I'm In Love With My Car" which was just superb. Next, John Deacon's classic bass riff begins "Get Down Make Love" which is the best live version of the three now available.

Looking back at the 1970s and 1980s, sometimes many forget how big the band Queen was. If it weren't for Freddie Mercury's death in 1992, we might still be talking about Queen being as big a band as the Beatles. Even as Queen moved into the 1980s, while their popularity did slightly decline in the United States, it continued to be very high in Europe. Their performance at Live Aid is widely considered one of the greatest of all-time and their subsequent "Magic" tour is considered one of the all-time greatest concert tours. Queen would release a DVD and CD from that tour entitled "Live at Wembley 86" - and that performance might be considered their all-time best. Even before the "Magic" tour, Queen still performed many legendary concerts. One such concert was recorded in Montreal in November of 1981. The CD - "Queen Rock Montreal" is a great representative of those performances (this CD serves as the soundtrack for Queen's concert film, "We Will Rock You") While it might be a tad below the "Live at Wembley" performance, this performance is not far behind.

This is such a great concert, there isn't room to discuss everything on here. Here are ten "things to listen for" on this concert. These are in no particular order:

1.While Freddie Mercury is a brilliant vocalist, Roger Taylor really holds his own. Not only does he deliver thundering drums throughout the concert - he is simply outstanding providing the main background vocals. Taylor's performance on "Under Pressure" is going to make you forget that David Bowie would perform this song with Queen.

2. The fast version of "We Will Rock You" is a real treat to open the concert. In a lot of ways, I kind of like this up-tempo performance much better than the original.
