Rainbow 74 March - very unlikely that they have it reasonable quality
Rainbow 74 November - it looks like they have it only on VHS or even VCD . Or they were too lazy to look for a better copy when they prepared the "Absolute Greatest" videos.
Hammersmith Odeon 75 - I hope that they are still working on this, I'd like to see an offiicial release of it.
Hyde Park 76 - this depends really on the fact if they have the multitrack audio tapes or not. The only properly mixed track we've seen on official releases was Sweet Lady, and that one is taken from the 1976 BBC Old Grey Whistle Test show, all other official bits use the terrible audio from the video cameras.
Earls Court 77 - great show, but they would have to work very hard on removing all the technical errors (especially Freddie's mic) so I doubt this will get released
Tokyo 79 - I think they have this one complete and in great quality, so this would be a realistic release. Unfortunately Freddie sounds terrible, so I doubt it will get released.
Hammersmith Odeon 79 - perfect setlist, perfect performance, great audience, great camera - this could really be a best selling DVD. Unfortunately they won't release it because they obviously don't have the multitrack masters, and the audio filmed by the cameras is far from excellent
Buenos Aires 81 - they have this one complete, but probably in the same quality as we all have (judging from Rare Live). I don't believe this will get released in the near future.
Japan 82 - nothing prooves they have more songs than the Japan-only VHS and LD (even when they definitely have the proper intro to Now I'm Here), so even if they'd release it, it's not interesting for people like me.
Rio 85 -  I see this quite realistic, since it was already released on VHS and Queen tend to release only stuff which they released before. Unfortuntately there's nothing remotely interesting on this show for me.
Budapest 86  - according to Miklos they don't have the original master, so they could only release the same cut as they released on VHS/LD, so I again see this quite realistic.
Wembley 86 - I'm quite sure that this will get at least one more release, for example with all the footage they have from the first night (at least One Vision and Love Of My Life exist and were not added to the last DVD)
Knebworth 86 - I personally consider it to be the best 1986 gig so I'd love to see it on an official DVD, no matter how long it would be

Freddie didn't sound terrible in Japan 1979! He just lost his upper register! LOVE his low notes and "rapping" throughout the concert! :)   LOL

Anything above D4 on that concert, he strained to get. When he got into the F4/F#4 territory, it was uh oh! LOL

But it's a great opportunity to hear Brian singing Killer Queen or Roger singing Don't Stop Me Now :-) They sound quite different but still great

It not only proves that Brian and Roger are loyal to Freddie (helping him out), it also proves that one: They are good singers (live and Studio), and two: They should start doing concerts with just THEM on vocals (like a 2010 tour).

Got it,

nothing NEW basically will come up !
Queen have great quality standards for release something, so probably the best 3 concerts plus maybe Hammy 75 we already got them-

end of the story for the DVD live series?

Don't forget Paris 1979, Sao Paulo 1981, Venezuela 1981, Japan 1985, they are also great shows and can be officail realeased.

For best performance, better setlist, and finally be 70.

Hammersmith 1979 (Concert for People for Kampuchea)

Remember that includes:

-Dont stop me now (his latest, and one of the best)
"Spread Your Wings (one of the best performances)
-Bohemian Rhapsody (The best interpretation to my taste) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLEKlXgEGOA

That alone gives the right interpretation of release, even if that song.

-We will rock you (One of the best performances)
"We are champions (on C5)
"One of the best solos of Brian May (with silent night included)
"Some of the finest performances of somebody to love

And so we have a lot of reasons.

The only but is that there is no master tape, but how many concerts do not have this problem?, Plus it has an audience recording of very good quality (albeit with little power in the voice of Freddie), which would a mixture.

If further finds that there are master track, but are lost (ie, the possibility of being found)

Definitely, this has to be hard to pitch.
PD: Sorry for my poor English


The best live version of bohemian rhapsody

You're right, I forgot them completely. However the Japan 85 VHS/LD has an absolutely terrible sound mix, I hope they could re-mix it properly or use the radio mix.

Sao Paulo would be another great candidate for a great official release. Great audience, very good performance, interviews with the band, with the fans ...

Paris - anybody has an idea how much of the footage survived ? While all 3 gigs were filmed, there was some bad comment in Greg's book about the quality if I remember correctly

I'm glad you like the video. Mixing the sub-standard audience footage with the professional audio makes it a pretty good watching experience (at least for me). They of course COULD make something similar, but I think that nobody except the die-hard collectors would buy that (and they maybe feel the same way)

asi i said on another topic pittrek's edition is the best



I watched as fear took the old men's gaze

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

Perhaps plans were there in 1979 to release a live video to accompany the LK's album:  Brussels '79 footage is great... There's an awful lot of live footage from that tour from all over the place, including London (Kampuchea), Madrid, Munich, (Japan) Tokyo -any more I've missed.I do like the Caracas footage too from 1981.

Come on, awful lot of live footage ???
11 professionally filmed concert (or part of them) from 64 (or so) concerts done in 1979 is definitely NOT awful lot of footage.

I personally think that they wanted to release also a Live Killers - type video together with the album, if you look at the stuff from January, it's a typical documentary-style footage (interviews, rehearsals, soundchecks, parts of the songs instead of complete songs) ...

Slightly off topic, but I've just enjoyed the youtube One Vision clip, but can't believe how much the camera concentrates soley on Freddie - considering its the official Queen camera crew footage to the big screen, you'd think they'd spread it around a bit - poor old Roger only gets shown once!  Does anyone know if it was like this all through the gig?!?

Well it's a damn site more than they had shot on the previous tour.  Or any other tour I think, so yes plans were obviously afoot to release a video along with the album. I wish they'd shot the tour in 1978...
