Queen
New York, NY, USA
Madison Square Garden
December 2, 1977


This is an upgrade of the only known 8mm film from this tour (unfortunately sourced from YouTube).

I have included two versions - one with the film's original audio speed corrected (although the one spot in White Man with tape stretches is unsalvageable), and another with audio from the far superior existing audience tape. The latter version finally makes this footage enjoyable.

Many thanks to the filmer for making this available to begin with !


video:

Super 8 reel master > ? > YouTube > Adobe Premiere fixes > AVI (DV, 24p advanced)


audio for version 2:

AUD > Master Cassette > 1st Gen Cassette > WAV > FLAC level 8

Thanks, but how an earth do you get a 665MB avi file from a 3 minute low res 240p 4MB mp4 YouTube clip?
It looks shit on my 75" Bravia.

Because I didn't want to compromise any more quality. Encoding it to anything lower than that resulted in further blockiness and colour loss, and digital artifacts in the audio.

Unless we get the source material, it won't look or sound any better than this.

How did you manage to compress this all down to less than 300Mb?

WinRAR. Avi files compress well.
