Now that finally everybody is able to get a copy of GVH2. You can post your comments about the best moments on GVH2.

I personally was cracking up at some of the commentaries on the videos. Especially those where Freddie pretty much came up silly and certainly flamboyant ideas for 'It's A Hard Life', 'Body Language', and the ballet part of 'I Want To Break Free', and how Brian and Roger are like... 'We had nothing to do with the idea for that clip'.

I also was laughing my ass off on the commentary for 'Who Wants To Live Forever' where Roger says... "I must have been drunk on that shot".

I agree Tatter. Where are Freddie and John's commentary? Didn't they have anything to say about the videos in their time? Maybe adding the directors would have been more intreguing. The sound is awesome, and despite some problems with the widescreen factor(Radio Ga Ga,Kind of Magic,Invisible Man is not WS)it was great. Freddie's interview was great the the live performances were awesome.

Well I must say this DVD is great!
I think I've watched around 80% of both dvd's. In fact, I'm watching the videos from disc 1 with the audio commentaries. Roger is quite the funny man aint he? Ah well.
Although I miss the music before the beginning of each video on Disc 1.
Disc 2 was a treat!
Overall, the dvd is great!
However, I wonder why GVH1 was slightly expensive than the second one. I got GVH1 for 25 bucks. I got the GVH2 for 19 bucks. Beats me.

Something I had never noticed on video blew me away (well kind of) when I saw it on DVD. At the end of the clip A Kind Of Magic, Freddie (the magician) walks backwards from the Playhouse, meaning the video is played backwards at that point. I had always thought Freddie (or whom it is) just walked away from the Playhouse theatre.

I love the one interview on The Miracle section where John is replying to a very simple question in a long and drawn out way, then says, "Oh, I've forgotten the second part of the question." The interviewer then asks it again, and he replies, "Yes." with that traditional Deaky smile.

Also, the 'One Vision' documentary - while supposedly taken directly from The Magic Years video - is great. Makes me wish there was more video from Queen sessions.

I think 'The Invisible Man', while not my favorite song, is by far one of my favorite videos. They looked like they had such fun while filming it.

Also, I'm curious...if anyone knows...John mentioned the band recorded some stuff in early 1988 or so, among the songs being 'I Want It All'. Wonder what else was recorded? I know most of the sessions took place at the end of 1988.

Rein, I have the Highlander edition w/the Queen videos and at the end of 'Magic' Freddie DOES walk away from the theatre. I noticed that too. The making of the "Miracle" cover was intresting, showing how it was put toghter. Reminded me of "Behind the Rhapsody" in a way. The singles cover was classy, but looked boring. Great disc, can't wait for GVH3.

Well, great DVDs!
My favourite is the Freddie Interview. I laughed my ass off there! 'this is an arsehole question....' etc

It seems that Roger is going on about fashion all the time ('I still have this coat' 'it was an armani' 'what a shirt' and on and on....

"Wonder what else was recorded?"

Lester, did you ever hear about the demos that came out from early 88? They're easy to find, and many of them are songs that didn't make the final cut, like A New Life Is Born.

There's no mention of archive Freddie commentary on my copy. Perhaps you have a rarity.
