Queen - Live In Houston '77 (DVD)

DVD | Video: NTSC 720x480 (4:3) 29.970 fps ~4100kbps | Audio: AC-3 2CH 256kbps
English | Date: December 11, 1977 | Runtime: 113min | Size: 3,78GB on Rapidshare

This is the legendary Houston show - legendary only because its video was the one of the most sought-after documents of Queen for decades. The filming was the result of an agreement with the venue not only for Queen, but also many other bands' concerts held there that year. The footage of Aerosmith, The Eagles, and Kiss is well-known amongst collectors, and the Kiss footage has been officially released on Kissology volume 1. Footage of Led Zeppelin is rumoured to exist as well.

The performance is fantastic overall, and there are a few interesting things to point out. Brian breaks a string a minute into Liar, so Roger has to improvise on his hi-hat for a short while until his guitarist gets a Red Special copy. They then play a spectacular version of the debut album gem, with an extended jam in the middle where everyone shines.

Freddie makes a very rare reference to his recurring nodule problem which was an issue at many points during his career (but not during this great period for him). "It's a real bitch of a song. It really gets to the nodules, but we're gonna do it for you tonight. This is..." (he hesitates and chuckes to himself, probably because he's surprised at himself for even mentioning it!) "a song entitled White Man." He offers a great version of the song, as his voice is in superb shape tonight.

The high quality of the recording is apparent at the end of White Man, as Roger can be heard dropping his drum sticks with the knowledge that he has a 10-15 minute break ahead. The band skip the reprise of The Prophet's Song - the only time this is known to have happened on the entire tour - as Brian jumps right into Now I'm Here after his rather unique guitar solo (which starts with him fiddling with his EBow). Perhaps this was done because of time constraints (having a limited amount of film?). At the end of Now I'm Here, Roger breaks a drum stick during his brief drum break before the final fanfare.

A great picture of the crown lighting rig was taken before the concert by the head of the Queen crew, Peter "Ratty" Hince, and it can be seen on his website.

In 1989, My Melancholy Blues from this show was released on the UK 12" "The Miracle" single, and on The Miracle CD single in the UK and Austria. Also in 1989, an edited version of the song was seen on the Rare Live video release.

great concert and performance!



I watched as fear took the old men's gaze

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

I see no day, I heard him say

So grey is the face of every mortal

Nice up but the audio is inverted. Nothing that can't be fixed but it's just not something you check for in those releases (at least I didn't usually but I will from now on).

Can someone enlighten me?  Why are there two Houston rapidshare lists?  What's the difference.  Are both NTSC?  I am aware that there is a version floating about that has been converted from PAL to NTSC since an NTSC master has never been located.

I think the new links were added as the original uploads didn't have a menu and there was a comment about the audio being inverted. Do the second set of links address this? 

The second version is a Snow Productions version of the show. I actually prefer the original files and can live with the inverted audio... the audio levels are lower and don't seems as hot and the actual footage is a little cleaner in the first link, the Snow video has been processed to make the blacks darkers etc... but that's just my opinion!

OK just realised that the second version is actually the one I wanted, it's the PAL DVD with LPCM mono track.

Hi All,
I'm wondering if anyone can clear up a question about the quality of various versions of this concert. I've downloaded (via torrent) a file called "Queen - 1977 - Live in Houston - Definitive Houston Silver." (There seem to be different versions of this on torrent sites, but all with the same name; this version is 3.88 GB). While the video is good, it is not great. I began my hunt for this concert because of clips from it found on YouTube. Once I had the full concert downloaded, I compared a section of it with a clip of "The Millionaire Waltz" (from this same show) which is posted on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCeEcWwe52w). The image quality of that clip is simply outstanding--very clear and sharp. The video I have, by comparison, looks soft, fuzzy, grainy--just poor overall. Does anyone know the source of that clip? and where can I find it? In short, I want to know what is the best video version of this concert. (I saw comments above about the different audio versions; I'm less concerned about the audio). Thanks for the help.

That clip was released by the band either on iTunes or through the official website. I forget which, but there were a couple sets of old concert videos released in the last few years.

The best available complete copy of the show is likely a second gen copy, and it's still quite good, both video and audio. But at the moment the Queen Productions copy is limited to a few songs and the odd documentary clip. Don't hold your breath waiting for this show to be released in full. Rainbow 74 and Hammersmith 75/79 are all far more likely to be released.

maybe this youtube clip is one of the video extra officially released with the "absolute greatest" cd
