Thanks to BriansWig for sharing his copy.

Been busy lately but I thought I'd tinker with this video a bit. Here's my take on it. Perhaps it's a decent alternative.

I bring you 2 versions of this. Why? Because this footage was originally shot on film. One version is normal 25 FPS and the other is 50 FPS which I decided to upload because the conversion turned out fairly okay (like it's not *too obviously* fake looking - re distorted). So you can download either of these or both of them, depends on whether you prefer normal video or smooth motion.

Thank you Chief! I expected something like this when Brians Wig shared his copy. Thanks a lot to both of you.

Very good. It looks like it was filmed yesterday. I wonder if they'll ever make this official.

If you delay the audio by 50ms, it runs perfect.
But that's just my opinion :)

I was expecting your magic on this one, Chief :-)
And once again, you delivered!
It looks beautiful! Thank you for sharing your work with us, and Brian´s wig for sharing the original file. This is such a great performance, and being shot on film only adds to it´s beauty.

Great job. Love John's bass line. Is this the only video recorded from the rehearsal? Any idea if there's more in the vaults?

If I'm not wrong, it was recorded for Top Of The Pops. I don't think there's any more in the vaults.

BTW, this has any difference with the version you (Chief) shared to me some time ago?


Don't forget my collection of demos and outtakes: http://goo.gl/uQARhn

PM me if you want any [leaked] multitrack.

Yeah, it's better as the source is higher quality. BriansWig shared it several days ago.

Did you do that 50fps version just for me Chief because I'm always complaining about you deinterlacing video material?
If so you're a naughty little minx with a devilish sense of humour for making it look a bit like a video recording when it shouldn't be.... ;-)
LOL

To be honest, I did yeah :D But if it looked distorted (as happens with some videos depending on the setting, like fast motion) I wouldn't have done it though.

Hmmm, if it was originally shot on film, shouldn't it be slowed down to 24/48fps? :P
Supposedly they converted it for TV broadcasting by speeding it up to 25fps, and correcting the audio pitch afterwards?

They digitized it to a PAL tape or something, I suppose by speeding it up. I didn't want to mess with slowing it down. It's not like it's too fast it's obvious, like that SD version of Budapest that we had before Hungarian Rhapsody got released.

Excellent job as always, Chief !

Clearly this was assembled from multiple takes, as plenty of drum and guitar parts don't match the audio. Whoever edited this back in the day made some horrible creative decisions.

But aside from that, it's wonderful footage from 79.



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.
