Queen Live at the Summit Houston, Texas, USA December 11th, 1977 Soundboard Recording Sound Quality: A+ Attendance: 16,000
Apart from Hammersmith 1975, this show in Houston is probably the most famous Queen concert of the 70s. This concert, along with several other shows during December of 1977, were filmed. So far this gig is the only show that's had it's footage leaked and/or released. Bob Harris and his crew not only shot footage of this show, but also shot footage of Atlanta 12/8/1977, Fort Worth 12/10/1977, and Las Vegas 12/15/1977, none of which has been publicly seen to date.
Even with the set cut back (It's Late, Spread Your Wings, and The Prophet's Song were not performed tonight likely due to limited film for the show), the songs they did perform rank as some of their best ever and showcase Queen at their very best. Freddie sounds great tonight, as he always did on this tour, and besides Brian's awkward string break during Liar, the band come through very strong all night.
The audio from this gig comes from a soundboard source. The version on this upload is a remaster by DJGreg. The quality is amazing and competes with official releases. The original version was, like all soundboards, dry and lacked the atmosphere of a live gig, but DJGreg put on some reverb, and fattened up the sound with an EQ adjustment to enhance the atmosphere to a level that the best audience recordings can have.
