After releasing live albums that mostly drew from the early to mid ’80s, Queen will finally release some archival live material from the mid ’70s. On June 16, the band announced it will issue Live at the Rainbow ’74, which captured a then-rising group performing at the popular London venue on March 31, 1974. The concert, whose set list drew from the group’s first three albums (Queen, Queen II, and Sheer Heart Attack), has definitely been regarded as one of the major highlights in Queen’s history– shortly before “Bohemian Rhapsody” would turn the music world upside down and really cemented the band’s popularity.

According to the press release, the set – to be released in the States on September 19 – will be available in various configurations: a 2-CD package, a DVD, a blu-Ray, double vinyl, a vinyl boxed set, and a super deluxe collector’s edition. This is welcomed and great news for fans who have been dying to hear some new official archival material pre-Live Killers.

This is the track list for the different configurations, taken from the press release:
