Yes, I do too.

In fact, I prefer this DVD version to the later releases because even though I do own a widescreen television, the videos on this disc are all uncropped original aspect ratio.
So Bohemian Rhapsody is reproduced at the correct 4x3 ratio, wherein Freddie's head is not chopped-off at the brow.

Also included is the original video version of 'Fat-Bottomed Girls' - rather than the cut and paste mud-wrestling of the new 'Greatest Flix'

The sound is stereo only, but is still excellent when played through the television or good amplifier system.
For me the 'Ultimate version' would be these older videos set to the newer 5.1 soundtrack. Nevertheless, this is a good addition to any collection.

The seller wants £120/€150 for it. I think that is too much.

Agreed. I didn't even pay near that much for my "Golden Boy" CDV disc. More like near 75 quid back in the day.

Some sellers are still looking insane amounts for Queen stuff even though the arse fell out of the market some time ago. And if the current depression in the British (and world) economy continues, I would guess a lot of Queen memorabilia will soon be more valuable as firewood than anything else.

No: because it is still an officially released product.

They are talking about the DVD though, not VCD.

Everybody at the UK convention was given one this year for free, so try not to get ripped off on ebay.

Everyone uploads official stuff to the queenhub including the main-operator.
