http://www.queencollector.com/Newlive/Qvids/index.htm Has anyone ever heard of this site? Is it even safe? I would definitely buy some of their stuff, only if maybe other people on here have as well.

Don't bother. Much better versions are available for free here on QZ.

Don't be fooled by some fancy looking artwork.

I use that website as a reference when looking for torrents, but yeah, almost all of them are in the download section here on QZ for free. Some can take a while, though, due to lack of seeders.

I agree with what the above posters said. For what it's worth, I have ordered items from the website in question and they have always arrived in good condition.

The guy that runs the site in question is a class-act asshole. He will take freely uploaded bootlegs and make profit off of them (and even use images from mismatching shows on the cover art intentionally, which was specifically one of the reasons why we don't have the fan-shot high-definition video from Worcester 2006 available to us!)

I read that the Hyde Park video is in excellent quality! So what does that mean? Is it a trap? Honestly, just out of mear curiosity i'm going to purchase that dvd [since it is only 15 bucks].

I would be careful about that. There are people on these forums that know a lot more about it than me, but to the best of my knowledge there is no "excellent" footage of Hyde Park '76 circulating. I downloaded the Snow Producciones version of Hyde Park '76 (which I am led to believe is one of the better ones) and IMHO it is only just watchable. The only excellent footage I know of from Hyde Park '76 is of Sweet Lady, which is one of the bonus features on the Night At The Opera 'classic albums series' DVD, but can also easily be found on youtube if you just want to have a look without buying the DVD.

I also have a painful memory from back in the pre-internet days of paying $90 USD for a video cassette of Hyde Park '76 which was supposedly "pro quality", but was simply atrocious. Times have changed, but there will always be people willing to relieve collectors of their money in exchange for poor product. If excellent video of this show existed, you would have heard about it here on QZ!
