Live At The Rainbow ‘74 is a live album by British rock band Queen, released in September 2014 via Virgin EMI Records.

Mention the name Queen to fans of classic rock and you will get many reactions. They’re a unique group who gave us a whole new take on rock music. Other great bands had powerful singers and supporting vocals to accompany killer instrumentation; but not quite in the way Queen did. They did not just play rock and roll; they introduced classical elements not often heard before in the genre. As they continued to grow they developed an even more unique signature sound. Brian May’s guitar sound and virtuosity is instantly recognizable. If you cannot identify Freddie Mercury’s voice within two seconds of hearing it you cannot call yourself a classic rock aficionado and probably should not even be visiting this site!

Allegedly planned for an official release back in 1974 or 1975 but scrapped by the creation of A Night At The OperaLive At The Rainbow '74 fills in part of Queen's history: it is the first official live album to capture the band at their pre-Night At The Opera fury.

Queen Live At The Rainbow ’74 provides us with a wonderful look back at a rock giant as they were first beginning to enjoy international success. The music is decidedly more edgy and aggressive than what we may have grown used to during Queen’s later years. Songs like “Son And Daughter” which features an extended Brian May guitar solo, could easily fit into the same style as Led Zeppelin. “Keep Yourself Alive” is played with more power than heard in any other recording.

This is a classic hard rock performance from very talented and hungry artists. They are playing on a bare bones stage. There is no fancy light show and no pyrotechnics. It’s just the guys blasting out fantastic, high-energy music.

In front of it all, of course, stands the incomparable Freddie Mercury. The man exudes charisma and has the audience in his grip from the moment he hits the stage. He maintains total command of the show as a rock superstar but still interacts with the audience in a perfectly natural manner. He was the consummate performer, and he shows it in full here.

Queen Live At The Rainbow ’74 is easily powerful, the recording quality is excellent. It’s a fantastic tour through pre-“Bohemian Rhapsody” Queen. A truly interesting ride!

Check out the tracks: “Stone Cold Crazy”; “Keep Yourself Alive” and “Killer Queen”. 

This Limited Edition double LP with remastered audio, gatefold sleeve and printed inner sleeves is pressed in Europe on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
