This is a tiny little video share. As you maybe know Greatest Video Hits 2 DVD contains both Queen performances at Montreux, one from 1984 and one from 1986. For some reason however the 1984 show is edited, more than a minute of Radio Ga Ga is cut.

I managed to get the missing minute from a fellow collector, however the quality is very poor. I gave it to Chief Mouse, he did try the best he could to remaster it, for which I'm really thankful :)

So the next video is a merge of 2 videos,
1) PRO > TV broadcast > VHS(x) > DVD > Chief Mouse remastering > MKV
2) PRO > ? > Greatest Video Hits 2 DVD > DVDDecrypter > NeatVideo cleanup (if I remember correctly) > AVI

Download @ 1fichier :

Does anybody have a BETTER quality copy of the missing part? If yes, please let me know or share it, thanks a lot

Thank you very much, gentlemen ! I'm truly appreciative of the tremendous knowledge and the kind efforts to share it with us (this applies especially to several persons here of course !). I wish I had anything special to share as well...

I think I know somebody who has the first part in fairly decent quality.
I'll try and find out.

The good news is he has it, the bad news is it is trade only.
He sent me a screen shot though.


Seriously? For footage that was shown on TV? Ugh.

I have an old VHS with the Montreal 84/86 in excellent quality, and I'm pretty sure it's unedited.

Anyone in Canada or the US with a good VCR and the means to transfer to digital? I'll happily send my tapes to them.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

I appreciate the offer - but the Canada Post rates are outrageous. It has to be somewhere around here.

Did you record this one yourself by any chance?

Come on, this is a kind offer, surely there is a taker??

No, but my ongoing quest to find the best quality clips inorder to produce some kind of year by year video scrapbook has resulted (over the last 7 years or so), in me obtaining 3 other peoples collections (and I'm talking fans who were collecting from the 70's onwards, as well as my own collected from 86 onwards) with one more collection to come in the next couple of months once that person gets round to it. One of them will have an off air, if not all three.

Once all these tapes (and there's nearly 200) have all been collated and captured into the PC (I have 4gb full already), I can then go through each recording of the same item and, where necessary, edit a complete version from however many sources it takes and then clean up as best I can before encoding the final output.
It's been a long job because life gets in the way - infact it's been a year since I had the time to capture anything as I do a full tape at a time and that can take up to day as I try to get the best out of each clip first because once a "fault" is inherent in the capture, it's generally stuck there.
The other good thing, of course, is Chief Mouse has proved that footage can be cleaned up afterwards as well, so the better the footage to start with, the better the post capture clean up will be.
