Hello Queenexperts,

I need some help with this. In the various treads I read about this show there was said this performance existed in the vault of QP. However....I reminded that Brian May stated on his soapbox that they had no other footage than the songs on the laserdics and VHS, but they do had the audio mastertapes This markes the fact that we see on the second disk of the "Queen On fire at the Bowl" a laserdisk rip and no use of the orignal mastertapes. And we can hear the song "Calling All Girls... but no rare footage..

Thefore my Question: Does anybody know if the complete video footage of the Japan show 1982 is in the archives of QP, EMI Japan or EMI UK?

GT OR Greg Brooks??? some help please

UPDATE: I found this on Brianmay.com

Queen Shows That Were Filmed Live
In response to newsgroup discussion, Jacky was kind enough to reply:
"Leeds was never filmed sadly, as Brian says he prefered it to Milton Keynes! ... they RECORDED almost every show, but filmed very few. All that exist that have never been released on video are Hyde Park 1976 (but the quality is very very bad and they cannot "rescue" it as it was filmed on 16mm and not stored properly). Houston and Earls Court 1977, two Japanese (79 and 82 I think?), Milton Keynes 1982...and there is also stuff like the "other night" at the Rock In Rio show, which is out as a bootleg (we showed it at the Convention!!) and possible snippets of other stuff, but in the main that's IT!"...
"Queenonline's shop - ARE re-issuing stuff that would otherwise remain "deleted" such as Brian's Brixton show, Roger's CD's, and they're working on the Cross stuff too. They are well aware of the power of e-commerce and are doing what they can to make stuff available through the website."
More should be known later this year, about what relevant "live" films will accompany the CD's in each collection.

Right..

Anyway, back to topic... hope you get the answer you seek.  I'm curious myself.

I don't understand...If they claimed to have recorded almost every concert, than where the hell is this footage and why do they have to hide it for themselves?

It's greed and selfishness. If everything was available (all bootleg audio and video), everybody would be satisfied (and Queen Productions wouldn't need to make millions of "Greatest Hits" albums)!

Greed?  Not at all.

They have the right to do what they want with their own recordings of themselves, which includes not releasing them.  Where did this sense of entitlement come from?

As for the videos, who said nearly every show was filmed?  And who says all the Tokyo 82 footage has actually survived?

So the bit about re-issuing old shows, was that 2001 or recent?

I recall it being said that QP contacted about 15 TV stations to try locate the full Japan 1982 show but no cigar ....

As we should all know, Hyde Park is not as bad as first thought (maybe due to modern restoration techniques?) so maybe we'll see that one day.

============================================

Sometimes it seems so logical, but I think some things are far more complicated at the end.  Wasn't the Japan video 1982 original put out on the market by Toshiba EMI? This should have been the production company who edited the VHS down to one hour. For me the source is TOSHIBA. Perhaps the masters are lying over there.

Comments like this make the fans sound greedy. Do you really think Queen would keep recordings from us just because they're greedy and they want to keep all the rarities for themselves? :

It's their stuff.... and it's not that they owe us or something.
