Freddie's vocal exchange with the audience tonight before Dragon Attack contains some beautiful melodies.

Brian has a poignant moment with the enthusiastic audience before Love Of My Life. "You know, the first time we came to Nagoya was a very long time ago, and a lot things have happened since then. And some years ago we had an album called A Night At The Opera, and on that album there was a song which we did with lots of choirs, and a big production and everything. And we'd like to do it for you now in a different way, and it goes like this." A flange effect is added to Brian's acoustic guitar during the instrumental break of the song on this tour, giving it a slightly different flavour.

This version of Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting is the longest the band would ever play, clocking in at about four minutes.

Brian plays a very funky Telecaster solo in Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

The picture was taken by Dave Matkin.

This recording itself is pretty good quality, but there is a lot of tape hiss. It was also transferred a bit too hot, causing some distortion. Many songs are unnecessarily cut. The first cut in the guitar solo was for a tape flip about four minutes in, but an additional three minutes are missing towards the end.

This version has less tape hiss, but a bit less bottom end in the EQ.

The guitar solo is three minutes longer on this copy. There is an edit (into possibly another source) around 8 minutes, but no audible edit back into the main source. Hammer To Fall and Crazy Little Thing Called Love are complete on this copy.

The bulk of We Are The Champions and God Save The Queen have been filled in with what seems to be an alternate source.
