I think it's quite nice. Very classy, great videos, interviews with the directors are a nice bonus. Great sound.. regular 5.1, not dts-exclusive like the Queen discs, and the videos aren't cropped either. :)

Of course, some will post to say save your money and get the big Freddie box (which includes this disc plus a documentary disc) but if that's not in your budget, you can't go wrong with the video collection.

A good dvd, though I can't remember if it also includes the Untold Story... Anyway, if you have the chance, you'd better buy the Freddie Mercury Solo Box Set.

Never too late to get a copy! I got mine off Ebay for $99 new and sealed (thank God I waited another year!). I've been listening to the Montserrat Caballe sessions and they are lovely!

Oh, it definitely is -- especially the acapella version of La Japonaise. You'll think you've died and gone to heaven...!!

I'm not very fond of Freddie's solo videos. I wish Hollywood Records would have realeased 'The Untold Story' instead.

Just keep in mind that the 5.1 sound was attained by upmixing to 5.1. The reason for this is because some dolt decided to delete Freddie's album cuts. So, there will never be a proper 5.1 release for any of the Bad Guy material.

Btw, the boxset is so worth getting if you're interested. If not, just get the video collection.

Peace,
Adam.

I really should have purchased this but instead I brought Greatest Hits 2. Damn me. Damn me to hell.

It's a great DVD... I wish I could buy the whole box, but I just can't find a low enough price for a new one...
