This album was released as a single CD, double LP, CD+DVD set, and CD+Blu-ray set. It features the complete show, and was also simultaneously released on DVD and Blu-ray, losing two tracks. The CD, DVD and Blu-ray were all released together in a boxed set which also contains replica memorabilia from the concert, and a 12" single containing a soundcheck recording of 'Now I'm Here', which was the first time any Queen soundcheck had been officially released.

The concert was performed on Christmas Eve 1975 and broadcast live on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 1, at 10:00pm, as an 'Old Grey Whistle Test' special, with an intro by Bob Harris, the end of which was included on the release. As a result of the broadcast, the show became one of Queen's most widely bootlegged recordings, and three bootlegs from the 'Top 100 Bootlegs' project feature tracks from the show, namely 'Xmas At The Beeb' (16 tracks), 'Rhapsody In Red' (15 tracks) and 'Rogues & Scandals' (5 tracks). Between them, they feature the complete show, albeit with an edited version of the 'Jailhouse Rock' medley. Like many other bootlegs of the show, they featured an incorrect tracklisting, with 'Keep Yourself Alive' before 'Brighton Rock'.

Several tracks had been officially released before, as 'Now I'm Here' and 'White Queen' were released on the 'Sheer Heart Attack' and 'Queen II' 2011 album reissues, while 'Ogre Battle' and 'Son And Daughter' were released on the 'Queen II' and 'Queen' 2011 iTunes LP's as bonus videos. The 'Rare Live' video features excerpts of 'Keep Yourself Alive', and edited versions of 'Big Spender' and the 'Jailhouse Rock' medley.

Freddie: We're now going to take you to the battlefield. This is called 'Ogre Battle'

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahhh
Now once upon a time
An old man told me a fable
When the piper is gone
Soup is cold on your table
And if the black crow flies
Find a new destination
That is the sign, yeah, yeah, yeah
Come tonight
Come to the ogre sight
Come to ogre battle fight

He gives a great big cry
Swallow up the ocean
With a mighty tongue he catches flies
Palm of a hand incredible size
Great big eye
Has a focus in your direction
And the battle is won
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come tonight
Come to the ogre sight
Come to ogre battle fight

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahh
Ooh, watch out

The ogre men are still inside
Two-way mirror mountain
They gotta stay clear and out of sight
You can't see in but you can't see out
So keep a good look out
The ogre men are coming out
Two-way mirror mountain
They're running up behind
And they're coming all about
Can't go east 'cos you gotta go south

Ogre men are going home
And now the great big fight is over
Bugle blow let trumpet cry
Ogre battle lives for evermore
Wow, oh, oh
'Cos you can come along
You can come along
Come to ogre battle, ahh

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ahh, ooh

Lyrics:
Freddie: OK darlings, this is a little, delicate little number called 'White Queen'

So sad her eyes
Smiling dark eyes
So sad her eyes
As it began, ohh

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, ohh

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 can make
Still I wait

My Goddess hear my darkest fear
I speak too late
It's for evermore that I wait

Dear friends, goodbye
No tears in my eyes
So sad it ends
As it began

Freddie: Now then, we're gonna do a nice tasty little medley for you, just like the one we did the other day, yes, and we're going to start off with a little segment from a number called 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth

Mama, oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I don't want to die
Sometimes wish I'd never been born at all, ohhh

Lyrics:
She keeps a Moet Et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
Built-in remedy
Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation you can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
(Anytime)

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally
You're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris
Cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
(Anytime)

Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

Come on, come on

I was told a million times of all the troubles in my way
To grow a little wiser, little better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers, and I rode a million miles
Still be where I started, bread and butter for a smile
Sold a million mirrors in a shop in alley way
But I never saw my face in any window any day
Now they say your folks are telling you be a superstar
Tell you just be satisfied, stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Come on
Let me see you
Ow

Well I loved a million women in a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners brought to me on silver trays
Give me everything I need, feed my body and my soul
Grow a little bigger, maybe that can be my goal
Told a million times of all the people in my way
How I'd have to keep on trying and get better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers, rode a million miles
Still be where I started, same as when I started

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Now shake it
Ooh
Ahh

Ahhh
Ooh

Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive

Do you think you're better every day
No, I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave, ow

Come on and keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive, keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive, come on, come on, keep yourself alive
Come on and get it, get it, get it boy
Keep yourself alive, wow

The above track time includes around two minutes of audience noise at the end, between Freddie's and Roger's dialogue.
Details of the original version can be found on the 'Sheer Heart Attack' album page.

Lyrics:
Brian: We'd like to leave you In The Lap Of The Gods

It's so easy, but I can't do it
It's so risky, but I gotta chance it
So funny, there's nothing to laugh about
My money, that's all you wanna talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But that's not true

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la
I can see what you want me to be
I'm no fool

There's no beginning, there's no ending
There's no meaning in my pretending
Believe me, life goes on and on and on
Forgive me when I ask you where do I belong
You say I
Can't
Never set you free
But that's not true

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh
I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh
I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods, everybody
Wo, wo, la, la, la, wo
Wo, wo, la, la, wah, wah, ooh

Big Spender


Track 15. Track length 1:24, song length 1:22.

It was previously included on the 'Rare Live' video, but was edited, containing the sections upto 0:06, and 0:15 to 1:13, retaining all dialogue and lyrics, including Roger's dialogue from the end of the previous track, reducing the length to 1:02.
Details of this cover version can be found on the Live Only Songs page.

Lyrics:
Roger: We're gonna do some rock 'n' roll

Ahhhhh
The minute you walked in the joint
I could see you were a woman of distinction
A real big spender
Good looking - so refined
Wouldn't you like to know what's going on in my mind

Let me get right to the point
I don't pop my cork for every one I see
Hey, big spender
Spend a little time with me

Jailhouse Rock (medley)


Track 16. Track length 9:21, song length 6:05.
This track segues from 'Big Spender', and includes lyrics from 'Stupid Cupid' and 'Be Bop A Lula', and a single line from 'Shake, Rattle & Roll'. The above time includes just under three minutes of audience noise, between Freddie's and Brian's dialogue.

An edited version of the track was previously released on the 'Rare Live' video, featuring the sections from 0:00 to 0:03, 0:06 to 0:24, 0:58 to 1:31, 1:46 to 2:49, and 5:33 to 6:05, reducing the length to 2:30.

Lyrics:
Freddie: Right, a number we forgot to do in the set, it's called 'Seven Seas Of Rhye'

Fear me you Lords and Lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine
The seven seas of rhye

Can you hear me you peers and privy councillors
I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust
I swear that you'll be mine
The seven seas of rhye

Sister - I live and lie for you
Mister - do and I'll die
You are mine I possess you
Belong to you forever, ever, ever

Storm the master marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire I'll survive (I'll survive, I'll survive)
Then I'll defy the laws of nature
Come out alive
Then I'll get you

Gone with you, you shod and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the mighty Titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye
Oh yeah, come on let me take you
Come on let me take you
Come on let me take you
To the seven seas of rhye
