Queen- Bohemian Rhapsody/ Killer Queen medley- London 1975

The regal rock of Queen came of age on the stage by this time in 1975 as is evidenced by this stunning performance at London's Odeon Theater with a medley of songs "Black Queen" from Queen II,  "Killer Queen" from their first solid album, 1974's Sheer Heart Attack , and their breakthrough "Bohemian Rhapsody" from Queen's fourth effort, A Night at the Opera.

Jimi Hendrix- Voodoo Child- Berkeley CA 5-30-70 (early show)
