Somebody To Love 2011: This is a new edit of the video using the four takes shot on the day, most of which has never before been seen.
We Are The Champions 2011: In 1977, cameras filmed Queen recording a new version of the song for the promo video. This video shows the band performing and mixing this unreleased version in two live takes. An instrumental version of this closed Part One of ‘Days of our Lives’.

Bohemian Rhapsody:Brian reveals how John Deacon made a cut in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ for the record company, only to be dismissed by Freddie: “Either it’s released in it’s entirety or not at all!.”
Working Together: The Band discuss their working relationship, including unheard archive of Queen having a ‘creative discussion!’

Looks like they've added some great stuff to the BluRay version.  Probably worth getting to see a lot of these things.

We have been told that the Japanese Blu ray will have more material still, yet this press release doesn't address that.

It does however state the following: "Queen On Tour 1974-5: Featuring Queen at the Rainbow and unseen footage of the band touring Japan for the first time. Includes excerpts of ‘Now I’m Here’, ‘Killer Queen’ and ‘In The Lap Of The Gods’ live".

Is this part of what was initially going to be exclusive to Japan, or something different?  Are the I Was Born To Love You and Teo Torriatte videos still exclusive to a Japanese release?

All Japanese pre order sites only have the uk Blu ray as an import and there is no specific Jpanese one to be seen; some sites even show the Japanese Blu Ray as being cancelled.



Can someone like GB or GT please confirm the situation regarding exactly what release will contain the extra Japanese material??!  I want to get the release with the FULL content, and don;t want to buy the UK pne only to find it available in Japan a month later.

Looks like it's time to invest in Blu-Ray DVD Player - 60 minutes of bonus material makes a difference. I just hope it's good!

I contacted the dutch office of Universal and they told me they have no
idea what their colleagues in Japan are up to. Does anyone know whether
the Japanese blu-ray is actually gonna be released, region coded and
internationally available? I have no intention of buying this release
multiple times (like I already did with so many Queen albums and
videos/dvd's) so I'm more than willing to wait for another month, if
that means I get the most complete release.
It also amazes me that neither Queenonline or Universal themselves can answer questions like these.

Region 2 is the same as uk and Europe, so no issue there. The question is whether this contains anything in addition to the uk Blu ray? Probably not as it's only DVD

This looks absolutely incredible.  Possibly the best Queen release in at least a decade.

Where are the naysayers who say QP gives the fans nothing new?  Come on, I dare you.... !

Nevertheless, this looks like a great release and I'm even tempted to buy a Blu Ray player just to get the extra material.

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

True, but to be accurate you'd then have to say the restaurant "rarely" provides a good meal, rather than "nothing" good.

That said, who in their right mind goes to a restaurant after not liking it the first 8 times? :-)

I don't have a BlueRay player and I refuse to buy one purely because QP refuses to add the full content to the DVD.
We had this before when DVD's were new, and had a lot more content than the VHS, but there was a good reason as DVD had so much more space to add stuff.This is purely to force people to buy the BlueRay instead of the DVD, and that is something I refuse.
Apart from that I think it's a nice release, I'm very curious!

Dear QPL & Universal.



Fucking NTSC.
I live in fucking England, you wankers.
We use the PAL TV system over here at 25fps.
That goes for Bluray as well.
I'm NOT at all happy about having to view yet another release with "drag" on the picture because you're too fucking tight to provide the correct format for the 3/4 of the world who use PAL.

Here where i live we have PAL TV too, but... really there´s a great difference between 25 fps or 29.97 fps??? can the eye capt a diffrence of 4.97 frames per second???
anyway i always think that the PAL footage should be keeped as PAL and the NTCS as NTCS, so if the majory of the footage is PAL the dvd would be PAL...

From Queenonline.com:

“As the two documentaries worked so well, we resisted the idea of making an epic 3-hour ‘Extended Cut’. They are always boring, and as Freddie said to his manager Jim Beach in his last days: “Do anything you want with my music dear, but never make me boring!

“So rather than simply dump a load of ‘deleted scenes’ onto the DVD and Blu-Ray, Simon and I decided to edit them all with as much love, time and care as we put into the main documentary.

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

This makes a clear difference between de way these guys work and the policy from QP we have seen over the last few years.

Gary... I ask this before in another tread. The Japan 1982 footage comes from a copy of a laserdisc right??? (same as for the Milton Keynes bonus disc)

Are the orginal multitracks still missing.....?
