I just started the download, the uploader says the silver DVD is from the original master, has AC3 audio, nice menu and cover. More than 10 seeders now, so the download should be fast.

This originated from a real silver DVD purchased
from Japan. It did not originate from queenzone
unless the boot company got the source from
there and used it to make their DVD.
It has a menu and chapter marks for each song.
I have attached a copy of the cover artwork and
a screen shot of the menu for you.
It also came with two discs. One silver and one
DVD-r that says original master version on it.
The DVD-r has a slightly different menu and
audio that isn't quite as good as the silver disc.
LPCM would have been a nice touch but probably
would have meant a DL disc.

I have a other silver version from japan :
label : Q visual arts / q vision
year 2006
nr : Qdvd04
Content : complete Houston show + uniondale 77 as a bonus.

Sure got it from japan , though on the sleeve the german age approvel sign is on the sleeve : "freigegeben ohne altersbeschrämkung

Though it does not have the quality as the screenshots which were shown here.

The sleeve is in the NOTW album artwork style (the robot).

Anyone more info about this one ? or do you know which are the other Qdvd01, 02 and 03 or 05 + numbers , which shows do they offer ?

Cheers...


Cheers everybody and keep yourself alive

This must be the same version shared here a while ago. It´s strange that all of a suden everybody has a clean video of this show.

I´ll wait for the 928 version of this one.

Take care

Of course! Many bootleg labels download from here and package it up for sale.

I don't know if that's case with this one, the video looks better than the one that was shared here a while back.

The audio will tell the tale. If the volume of the audio is as low as the DVD upped here, then it could be the same video.

I am the uploader of the show at tapecity.
I am very interested to read some comparisons
of the DVD I bought and the shows available here.
The audio on my DVD is definitely not at a low level. It is quite loud and clear. For some reason there is a second disc (DVD-R) that came
with this that has audio that is at a much lower
level.
For the record, I did not say that this show was
from the original master, just that the DVD-R had
that printed on it.(see attachment).
I have already received one comment from one downloader that says that the video from my DVD is better(only one opinion so far though).

Hi Greg,

Fist of all, thank you for your upload. I compared your version to the one was seeded here and your seems to be better. (only segments, because I am at 30 % at the moment) The old one was also good, but the picture of your versionseems to be clearer, the black part are really black-not grey. The audio is clean and quite loud.

Cheers,
Tibor

Could anybody upload it over at The Traders Den?

I just registered at Tapecity and then it told me, I was banned because of no reason and will never be unbanned.

I don't want to share Houston anymore - can I have it back now please ;-)

Seriously, I hope the silver boot sells by the bucket load as the only way QP will ever release it is when they see someone else making a fat load of cash out of it.

Bollocks...
don't say i'm working with a lesser quality video.
I know i'll beat the audio.

Damn,gotta grab this one and compare images.
Hope i don't have to start again from scratch.....lol.
BUT...if it came with a DVD-R that said master on it and that has lower audio,then i would say it was Pow wows with Bobs way of adjusting the audio levels.
I'll check where the tape flickers are on both.

The original version for this show is in fact PAL as that is the system of Argentina,but... it is a different kind of PAL(yes there are many) & if you were to play it in say the UK,then it will have a greenish hue tinge to it ,so the colour is more like NTSC.

Snows version will be a cropped,converted to NTSC version to remove the logos and then a stretch & squash to make 16.9 as it was filmed and broadcast in 4.3 fullscreen.
A re-encode.
Maybe he's YVs brother...lol(j/k Babs)

Because of whats been done on the video,i also imagine that the 5.1 audio is a simple 2channel > 5 nero/poweramp job.........may as well just click your Pro-Logic button with the original.
Even the poster said that disc 2 was not good & that is meant to be DVD-A......yeah right.

I havn't got it to check but as it describes 16.9....i know that what i've said above is a fact for the video.

I think it is safe to say now that the Japan DVD
I shared at tapecity did not come from the source
here. The Japan DVD is NTSC and seems to have better video than the version here. Since the show was in the US I would assume that the show
was originally recorded in NTSC. A conversion from NTSC to PAL could explain the slight degradation in video quality.

The original version of this concert would be NTSC as it comes from a screen feed as do the Aerosmith,Kiss and Who boot DVD's from Houston there is also allegedly a Led Zeppelin Houston 77 show being hoarded
