Queen Live At The Rainbow is een verplichte aanschaf voor iedereen die de groep volgt, maar zeker ook voor de Queen-cynici, die vanwege het te vaak gehoorde Bohemian Rhapsody de groep onterecht hebben afgeschreven. Ook of juist voor die tijd maakte de groep zeer inventieve muziek.
Dat er invloeden uit de glamrock, progrock en de vroege hardrock waren, is evident, Queen voegde daar wel zeer eigen elementen aan toe. De sprookjesachtige teksten van Freddie zijn een voorbeeld, zijn latere showmanschap is een tweede. Wie die nog niet heeft, mist sowieso iets.
Maar zijn die eenmaal aangeschaft, dan bewijst Queen Live At The Rainbow dat de pretenties uit de studio op het podium meer dan waargemaakt worden. The group also intends to release an album of new Queen music with vocal recordings Freddie Mercury made in the s, though the group has yet to release more details about that record.

Lyrics: So sad her eyes Smiling dark eyes So sad her eyes As it began On such a breathless night as this Upon my brow the lightest kiss I walked alone And all around the air did say My lady soon will stir this way In sorrow known The white queen walks and the night grows pale Stars of lovingness in her hair Needing - unheard Pleading - one word So sad her eyes She cannot see How did thee fare, what have thee seen The mother of the willow green I call her name And 'neath the window have I stayed I loved the foot steps that she made And when she came White queen how my heart did ache And dry my lips no words could make Still I wait My Goddess hear my darkest fear It's not too late It's for evermore that I wait Dear friend, goodbye No tears my eyes So sad it ends As it began Freddie: Thank you Roger: Thanks, thanks for listening Freddie: Ha, ha, ha, I tell you what, how, how would you like to know about a dirty old man that I know about.

Lyrics: Great king rat died today Born on the twenty-first of May Died syphilis forty-four on his birthday Every second word he swore Yes, he was the son of a whore Always wanted by the law Now would you like to know A wouldn't you like to know A wouldn't you like to know Great king rat was a dirty old man And a dirty old man was he Now what did I tell you Would you like to see?
Ow Where will I be tomorrow Will I beg, will I borrow I don't care anyway Come on, come on, the time is right The man is evil and that is right I told you And that's no lie Would you like to know A wouldn't you like to know A wouldn't you like to know Great king rat was a dirty old man And a dirty old man was he Now what did I tell you Would you like to see?

That's a gigantic insult to his memory, especially for a band who's trying to reshape their past by touring with Adam Lambert, claiming they're still relevant and they still carry the music industry forward.
Don't buy this, please. If you love Queen, look for "Live at the Hammersmith Odeon" or "Rock Montreal", where you'll be able to listen to the raw, unfiltered, wonderful voice of Freddie Mercury in the atmosphere of those days. Have: Want: 62 Avg Rating: 4.
Add to List.Live at the Rainbow ’74 doesn’t just succeed as an album full of raucous, fantastical, peerlessly executed rock and roll. It also thrills by pinpointing a place and time when a great band made.
