Yesterday, I found a very interesting information on a website which specializes on Queen recordings - it is stated that there exists an early Freddie recording from 1965: http://qliverecordings.tripod.com/earlyrec.html
Does someone of you know about this? Is there any further information on it?
Thank you in advance!

It's a rumour mentioned some years ago that Freddie is seen on some very short amateur video (without sound, music, performance etc) when he was still in school - not confirmed. Don't know why I add this info there :P

Yes, this recording exists.

It's a very young Freddie singing a song called Hangman Studio Version.

The lyrics go something like:

We got the whole house Hanging studio version
We got the whole world Hanging studio version
We got the Cosmos hanging studio version

and then there's a guitar solo.

Ah, then that's your site? I thought you had this record and tried to send you an e-mail for more information, but it did not work (the email-address)...
By the way, I heard a similar story/rumour too - that there is an early video of Freddie - I even have a photograph on my page which I have found years ago on Queenzone: http://www.mercury-and-queen.com/india.htm - it's the last picture, but maybe it is rather from India...

Yes, the silent video was on Ebay a couple of years ago. QP bought it eventually. Which means, it will probably decay somewhere far away in the archives.

You forgot to mention the 'Property of Queen Productions' bit...

Rick, do you have any information about that Silent Freddie Video ?
is it from an old show ?

And if it's silent how could people claim that Freddie was singing Hangman ?

Because it wasn't a show. I was referring to the video which a fellow school friend of Freddie made. It shows him in the 1960s.

I don't know why I initially posted that. I guess I totally missed the point!

Right!
How long was it again?
I remember it was only about 4 seconds that you can actually see him...

Hello everybody & privet Dasha!

I also remeber this Freddie 8mm film sold at eBay - in lot's description there was the same picture as the last one on your web page here: http://www.mercury-and-queen.com/india.htm. I think it is Freddie at his London student years.

Thank you for this information! Yes, maybe it is most likely from his time as student in London - even if there is an Indian looking guy near to him

As I recall, Brian was notified and even addressed it on his Letters page.
