On The Champions Of The World Documentary, there is a segment where Freddie is seen performing this song. The footage of this performance, is it from the 6th or the 7th of june 1977?  If its from the 6th it features different camera angles, from the regular version out there. Although its only about half the song in general its still a great performance and seems to have been overlooked on the pittek remaster and on sir gh web site. Please correct me if im wrong. Would really appreciate your comments.

Yes, Killer Queen is "common knowledge", I personally didn't know that YTMBA on Champions is from the second night. And it looks like I'm not the only person :)
I have to re-watch it and check Brighton Rock and Liar, from which night do they come

Excellent catch !!!

I've had this documentary on VHS ever since it came out, but I haven't watched it in many years... probably never since I started getting Earls Court footage from the first night on VHS tapes in black and white.  Ahh, these little moments of discovery are so great.

For us video fanatics every second of "new" footage is a little holiday :-)

Take a look at Roger's shirt during WWRY on Cyberbarn VHS and you'll see - footages are not only from the show itself...
