Have you ever seen the making of the night at the opera? If you did, tell me how you feel.  If not, you totally should see it.  It has commentary by all of them except john, and tons of bonus features.


If you want to be loved, love.

yes,  A solid DVD.  My favorite parts were 'the prophet song' and 'love of my life.'  Though the whole thing was great.

this DVD should have been included as part of the ANATO 30th anniversary set. The release could have been considered brilliant, then.

In Argentina you can get both DVDs togheter in one release, but not the remastered CD (you can get it with the DVD of the videos).

I like this documentary a lot. One of the best about Queen I have seen. I think Roy Baker is a genius, the best producer Queen ever had. The part when you can hear only the vocal harmonies (You're my best friend, Lazing on a Sunday, Love of m life) is great.

I have the dvd and have watched it several times. It is a fascinating insight into the technical mastery of Queen and perhaps even more so Roy Thomas Baker in the studio. It doesn't really go into great depth into their songwriting process though. I hope they will do more 'making of' dvds. And welcome to Little Killer Ham. I am a hamophile by the way.

It would have been awesome if they had a documentary for Queen II as well.  I'd love the stories of March Of The Black Queen and Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke
