You can buy a DVD compilation of most of the clips the band made for the conventions from the Queen fan club.
It was released to celebrate the 25th silver jubilee convention a couple of years ago.
It is 60 mins long and includes the earliest messages and songs recorded on tape to the latest videos recorded on camcorder just for FC conventioneers.

Why don't you get a copy from the fan club itself?

Where? I went to the merchandise section, and I didn't see it.

Please provide us with a link.


Any way the wind blows...

The only thing available on the Queenworld website are tickets to next year's convention and a link to buy a framed Greatest Hits 1, 2, and 3 (regular CDs) for over $150.00!!!!

So is there a link to buy the video? Is it PAL? Is it $150.00, too?

That website is pretty horrible.  Very poorly written.  I can't believe that anyone would send them $50 bucks for a "membership"!!!  Downright embarassing, I'd say.  Hopefully the video isn't made/compiled by the same people that operate the website.

Just contact Jacky and ask her, I gave you the email address.
The disc is region free so should play on any DVD player.
I think it cost £10 when it first came out.
The quality of some of the videos were recorded on a camcorder and is not perfect as you would expect. But it is a good record of what the band were up to over the years and from their own mouths.

I don't have anything to do with the website by the way...lol.

I don't mean to sound unnecesessarily negative again, but is this dvd an official release approved by Queen Productions? I somehow doubt the same people who are unwilling to release classic concerts in standard definition would be happy with camcorder material from the conventions. It's also a bit suspicious if it's only for sale under the counter. :/

So, basically this is really just a glorified bootleg and it's okay because (some of) the profits go the the fan club, right?

That's why it's not advertised on the site.

So Jacky and the Fan Club is selling a bootleg DVD. And Queen is staunchly against this type of behavior. Any Queen product must be officially released by their label or else a lawsuit would commence against whoever is distributing this.

Are Brian, Roger, or John Directors (in any legal way) of the fan club?

This just got extremely interesting.

Just release Rainbow and I'll stop asking questions.

It's not a bootleg, it's a fan club release with all content filmed by Jacky over the years.
Jacky has asked for it not to be shared as it was sold to raise funds for the fan club. If you want it - buy it.

Don't be a jerk. If you badly want to see it, I'm sure with the effort you put into requesting torrents of OFFICIAL MATERIAL, you could easily mirror that effort into ponying up 10-20 quid to buy it from the Fan Club.
