A Night At The Odeon 1975 by Queen is one of the most wanted live albums and DVD releases.
In 1975, Queen raced to #1 in the UK singles chart with Bohemian Rhapsody while they were on their A Night At The Opera tour. The final show was at the Hammersmith Odeon in London and the show was broadcast as the Old Grey Whistle Test Christmas Eve special.
It has been frequently bootlegged but the concert is finally released as a live album and DVD on November 20th 2015, nearly 40 years after the original gig.

Return Of The Champions is a live album and DVD by Queen With Paul Rodgers.
It was recorded at Hallam FM Arena, Sheffield on 9th May 2005.
This was a tour and album that raised lots of difficult questions:
- Should Brian May and Roger Taylor call themselves Queen?
- Can anyone stand in the shoes of Freddie Mercury?
- Should they go for a different style of singer or a soundalike?
Well we know how the pair answered that last question in 2005. They tried a different approach and brought on board one of the greatest rock vocalists who has his own style and could never imitate Freddie.
This controversial album is admired by some as a brave new interpretation of the songs and loathed by others.

Queen on Fire Live at the Bowl is a live album and DVD by Queen.
It was recorded at the Milton Keynes Bowl in Milton Keynes, England on 5 June 1982 while the band were promoting the disappointing Hot Space studio album.
Perhaps Queen were trying to prove a point because this album rocks hard and the piano based ballads create a great contrast.

Queen Live At The Hammersmith Odeon 1975 isn’t a live album but I wish it was.
I remember this being broadcast on the Old Grey Whistle Test on the BBC on Christmas Eve in 1975, having been recorded earlier in the evening.
Bohemian Rhapsody was #1 on the singles chart in the UK. If I remember correctly, A Night At The Opera was #1 on the albums chart.
And Queen did a great concert which I really hope they turn into a top quality official release because I want to buy it and have done for more than 35 years.
Here is the video of the concert I found on YouTube. I don’t know how long it will stay available but I’m assuming that this has “unofficial permission”. After all Queen can afford to have someone policing their copyright and having YouTube take it down. Continue reading Queen Live At The Hammersmith Odeon 1975
