By the way, talking about Calling All Girls live, i seem to remember there's a live version on the On fire at the bowl-dvd, right? As the soundtrack to the photo gallery, so to say. Any mp3 of that one up for download, anyone?

At least there are several live versions of Under Pressure.
Example is Live at Wembley '86.

There are also two versions of Back Chat. It's the same version, but in one of them theres a break at the end of the song, between Back - break - Chat.

Imagine was played a few times in 1980, so it technically isn't a Hot Space era live song.

What shows are you using for the live versions of Body Language and Life Is Real?  Maybe I can help point you to better-sounding recordings.

You forgot Back Chat (7" Single Remix), and Las Palabras De Amor (Queen + Zucchero, FM Tribute Concert 1992)

I would recommend Body Language from the second night in Vienna (13th May 1982). It's the complete version and has nice sound quality.

the 'Staying Power' 12" version, and, perhaps, the really unneccessary 'Under Pressure' somewhat trivial, somewhat alternate version from the USA 'Greatest Hits'/'Classic Queen' release (so sublime that you'll have to be a big fan to notice the difference, yet you will be able to tell where the changes are)

Just rip it from the DVD as ac3 and convert it to any format you wish with BeSweet

Peter, do you have the MK TV broadcast? I would love to hear Action This Day without overdubs (and with normal drums, I also can't stand the fake sound on the official DVD).

@ the topic starter: Get Staying Power from the GVH 2 DVD. Far better than the officially released version :)

Rick - yes, but it's unfortunately incomplete. I don't know what exactly have they done but in my oppinion the drums sound better on the TV broadcast, the rest on the official album

Thanx for the input, y'all. The comp is taking shape. Using a full version of Body Language (Vienna) and Life Is Real from Chicago.

One more thing: the so-called US Promo Only version of Staying Power, is that the same version as the 12inch one? Or are they one and the same?

I skipped Imagine, since i didn't realise it's from 1980 (Life Is Real made me confused obviously), and I chose Under Pressure from Rock Montreal and Live Magic because, correct me if i'm wrong, those are the very first and the very last performances, right?
