So what recordings do we have from this concert?
I know there's:
- An audience shot DVD from the big screen
- A full audio recording shot from an audience member
- A news report from the show

Is there anything else like professionally shot clips or other clips from other angles?

Thanks :)

That's a good start !

There was another film crew called DoRo, separate from what was shown on the screen above the stage. Clips of their footage has been seen in documentaries - Is This The World We Created, Radio Ga Ga and We Are The Champions, amongst a few other very short clips.

A bit of One Vision was seen on a TV report about ten years ago, when Brian received one of his honourary degrees. Not sure if this is from the DoRo footage or some other source.

As for audio - there are several audience tapes, actually. One of them sounds quite good, at least for an outdoor recording taped from pretty far away.

And of course there's the audio as heard on Live Magic. The audio of the whole show is apparently intact in the Queen archives.

Those forum members who can't wait to flame this person for asking - just keep your mouths shut for once. If you have nothing helpful to add, then don't. Go take a walk, or better yet, go play on the highway.

Audio:
- a couple of audience recordings, the best and longest is the Crazy S master tape release by Wardour on the bootleg "Thank You All"
- a full soundboard recording (confirmed) in Queen archives, some songs appear on "Live Magic"
- full audience recordings of the Big Country and Status Quo, also taped by Crazy S

Video:
- pro-shot documentary shot by the DoRo team, includes the helicopter footage, the band arriving to the Park, Freddie's vocal "training", few bits from the Status Quo performance, Queen members coming to the stage, and various parts of Is This The World We Created, Tutti Frutti, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hammer To Fall, Radio Ga Ga, We Are The Champions and God Save The Queen - everything shot on film
- another pro-shot footage, shot on video, just One Vision (broadcast on the TV report, definitely NOT DoRo)
- the audience video, almost complete (missing just the end of CLTCL and some parts between the encores)

Photos
TONS of photos, both audience and professional. E.g. Pete Still who was one of the official photographers has sold a 120 photos set on ebay some time ago, all of them are fantastic

Stories
Many incredibble stories by people who were there

Thank you very much both of you!

I think we might get Knebworth on CD later this year, mightn't we?

I hope we will get at least the missing tracks as a bonus disc to the Live Magic re-release

Here we go again ....

No, they are NOT two brothers.
No, there is absolutely NO evidence that they filmed the whole show, but there are many proofs they didn't.
What is "real film" ?

I'd wish you're right, but I have absolutely no reason to believe it.

And, as they filmed it with real film, that means it can be transfered to blu-ray.


I'm throwing out all my Queen DVDs right now.
