According to BW&BK's Tokyo based source, the new QUEEN Best Of album, Jewels, which is exclusive to Japan, has sold more than 1,400,000 copies since its release several months ago.

The live video, Queen: Last Live In Japan, which was recorded at Yoyogi National Stadium (Tokyo) in 1985, will be re-issued on DVD within the next two months.

Am I right in thinking that if this is a re-issue that it will be the same as before?

Peace,
Adam.

Is this for release only in Japan?

Is this an official superb quality relase or just some (semi-)bootleg? Is this something like WWRY (Montreal 81)?

Why the obscure use of English?

I've this DVD in already bootleg form (bought in Russia). I think it wasn't their best performance. But every release is good news!


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

If this has the same audio mix as the last release, forget it. Whenever this video comes up on here, which is a lot, I always make sure that people know that the audio mix is shit. Brian's guitar is very low in the mix! NOT good.

However, if it is more than a simple re-release and things are different then, it would be nice for someone to tell us this.

Peace,
Adam.

I agree the sound mix is dire (unless you're a big fan of Spike's mid 80s parping keyboard), but the picture is pretty good, having come off laserdisc, and the setlist is reasonably complete too.

Nothing like a parping keyboard to excite the senses.
