Hi!
I've been compiling a multi-source video of Keep Yourself Alive, Brewer Street version, and the sources that I've used this far are the old youtube download (that now since long has been removed), the magic years and queen rocks version. My questions are: Does any more clips of this video exist, even if it's just a few seconds, and does a better quality version of the magic years exist?
screenshot of the magic years in my possession:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this completely released on the Box of Flix set in 1991...?

No, it wasn't. Only Liar from the Brewer Street video session was released

Do any of you know any more documentaries or video compilations that contains anything from this video?

Actually, that and every other clip of this video on youtube comes from the old youtube upload and are downloaded with quite a bad video format convertion, so their quality are quite worse than the file that I downloaded, since I didn't convert the file and kept the flv-file. Anyway, thank you for trying to help.

Teddi, the screenshot of KYA you have is the Mike Mansfield version from St.Johns Wood Studios and not the Brewer Street Studios video by Bruce Gowers.
The only version that hasn't been officially released in it's entirety is the MM version of KYA.

According to this,

http://www.queenpedia.com/index.php?title=Keep_Yourself_Alive_-_Promotional_Video

Mike Mansfield directed the first video at brewer street, and the released video (more dark-lit) was filmed at St Johns Woods Studios.
However, I trust your information, although I've never heard it before. My screenshot is from the magic years documentary.
I don't know if I misunderstood your reply, but you seem to imply a third video directed by Bruce Gowers?
Anyway, it's the video that I took the screenshot from that I've been compiling clips from, and if I've been misinformed, please let me know.

regards

Are you sure ??? Because all the sources I read (I think including GVH 1DVD) claim that the "orange" videos are from Brewer Street Studios and the "violet" videos are from St. Johns Wood Studios

Here I upload photographs of the booklets of both box of flix and greatest video hits I. Although Keep Yourself Alive is the same video in both versions, Liar is not. The information in the booklets is somewhat confusing.

Old thread I know.
There is another 'edit' on the 'Queen Rocks' laser disc that has clips of both Brewer St, St Johns Wood and the original Old Grey Whistle Test BBC archives film.

Things that get mislabeled once tend to get repeatedly mislabeled.

Looking at Liar (Labelled Brewer St) from Flix Laserdisc alongside the Orange KYA video you can see it's the same white stage with drum platform. If you take it that the Flix on screen info during liar stating Brewer St is correct I can only assume the KYA orange video is also Brewer St. The stage setup is also almost identical in both videos.

GT, are you saying the on screen info for Liar on Flix is incorrect?

the GVH versions is much better, for a future box set for queen videos, the two versions of KYA and liar, will be on the box, the GVH versions will be on the principal disc, and the alternative, the real first version, on the alternative versions disc

I have spent months on this particular subject trying to find the correct info on these first four videos the band recorded. I came to the conclusion that most of the original info about these videos that feature in various long form videos are incorrect, as well as stating one of the venues incorrectly too.

Who was responsible for the original incorrect info Gary, and do we know what research they did to come to their (incorrect) inclusions?

Cheers

GT, please confirm that the videos with the white stage and white drum platform are BOTH St Johns Wood?
