I have seen bits of it on youtube. The sound is good, and the visuals are marginal; but I rather like it anyway because the camera stays on Freddie almost all of the time. It must have been before camera directors did this constant, frequent, choppy switching of shots that are so prevalent today. Among my videos and dvds of Queen, I don't have much of Freddie when he was in his black leather motorcycle outfit or in his red pants. It is not the clothes I am interested in - it was his stage presence at the time - young and fierce and frisky and macho. Before that he had a gentler presence on stage such as when he was in his white leotard days singing mostly "ballads." Then in Montreal ('81 or '82) he was incredibly graceful and slinky and silky. And so on. I love watching how his stage presence changed over the years. Is there video of an entire live show around the 1979 era? Thanks!


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.
