Has anyone heard anything about which Queen album is slated for release in DVD-A format? I'm really hoping either Jazz or Innuendo but we can always hope Sheer Heart Attack or Queen II may be a possibility!
(Actually, I would go for any Queen album as the next release. The sound on ANATO and The Game is so alive it leaves you wanting MORE!!)

OH, I sure hope so! If there's any possibility of us "willing it" to happen just by saying it every day, then "I'm chanting as we speak", sweetie darling!

We've discussed this before and I think most of us agreed it should be Queen II and I think there was some talk of that in the Queen camp, but you never know. That would be a good choice in my opinion. The album is even popular among people who aren't big Queen fans and would probably sell quite well in this format.

Well, I for one wouldn't mind having a nice DTS version of Innuendo... Though, I also want to get it on vinyl and cassette as well. Hey, It's my favorite album, And I only have one copy of it! I even have multiple copies of The Works! :P

I hope Brian is in charge of the mixing again! The first DVD-A of ANATO was mixed by Elliot Scheiner and parts of it were superior to Brian's version...but then again parts of Brian's were superior to Elliot's version...they should have combined both to make the BEST version, IMHO!
(Guitars are very prominent in Brian's, for those who haven't heard it yet!)
Brian and Roger are so busy with the musical I doubt we'll see another DVD-A this year...but I'm hoping for a miracle since I've played the three I own to death and want MOREMOREMORE!!
I see we have AbFab fans on this list -- I'm one as well! I've written Jennifer Saunders about a proposed storyline in which Edina and Patsy try to get publicity rights for WWRY in another country and end up stalking Brian and Roger in the process...would be nice publicity if it saw the light of day!

Hmm... Justin and Kris start remixing songs for the GVHits and do a pretty good job. Who's to say it isn't possible that Brian etc. could tell them to make up a DVDA project? Not a bad idea, methinks. Maybe bring in some 3rd party help on the mixing.

Mind you, JSS did do The Game by himself. Hmm...indeed!

Peace,
Adam.

Whoa, the GVH mixes suck so much! It sounds to me they were mixed very 'lazy'. Somewhere between breakfast and lunch on a monday morning

Lisa, you said (and a everybody say it) that "Brian and Roger are so busy with the musical".

What does this mean, really? I know that it's difficult to make the musical (thinking, planning, choosing the actors, promotion, etc). But now, with the musical going on and working fine, what are they really doing about it, that make them spend time just and only for that?

- attending it (Brian does that almost every evening)
- changing a note here and there
- promoting it everywhere on radio
- bringing it into more countries, planning to flood the whole world with it

That counts only for Brian though. I doubt Roger's does more than just attending the launch parties.

He probably also hits on girls not even half his age during the auditions/rehearsals (I don't blame him ;-))

My point being that Justin and Brian dealt with The Game on their own and fans seem to love it. So I think it's fairly easy to do a couple more at some point.

Peace,
Adam.

If I'm right, (and there's plenty of people on this forum to correct me!!!), Made in Heaven was one of the biggest sellers so logically this would be next surely? Queen II just doesn't have enough hit singles does it? ADATR would be a good (and logical) choice with regard sales figures. Seeing as Queen couldn't get arrested in the US during the 80s I wouldn't of thought it would be any 80s albums (seeing as it's a largerly american market). ALSO I read elsewhere on t'internet that DVD-Audio as a format is, as Alan Partridge might say, moribund. (Look it up!). Please don't switch to SACD now I've bought a DVD-audio player!!!

You read on the internet that DVD-Audio is about to die?
Gimme a break. RIAA reports DVD-AUDIO sales are 5 times of SACD. The most sold crap of today (Britney, Beyonce and so on) comes in DVD-AUDIO, which is a boost for the format.

Here's a discussion on the news.

I would admittedly buy SACD discs, but as it would require me to invest on a new player, sod it.

Oh and on Topic: I'd be happy with any Queen album on dvd-audio. I'll buy it anyway.

Well done!! :-))
DVD audio is the best thing to come out since the 24 karat gold CD in sound quality. Having a home theatre is a huge plus though. Before I bought mine I played the DVD-As on analog speakers, then on digital speakers, and then on the home theatre and....WOW -- an aural orgasm! You can hear EVERYTHING, even Freddie BREATHING. I think it's the next best thing to being in a studio, the clarity is THAT awesome!
God bless Brian and Roger, the jet-lagged guys we love who are doing such a tremendous job with the musical. Maybe, just maybe, Brian will be up for that knighthood one of these days...!!

Lisa: i agree with you 100%

ANATO on DVD-A simply blew me away even though i was using a cheap system

i could tolorate the Queen Boxset delay if they were releasing more Queen albums on the DVD-A format...

i am very disappointed that they haven't announced which album will get the DVD-A treatment...

Dark Side of the Moon is already available! One non-Queen DVD-A I adore is Fragile by Yes. It sounds so awesome next to the CD and vinyl version. Even the sound of Steve Howe's guitar pick hitting the strings of his guitar on The Fish -- OOOH!!!!
That's why I'm not-so-patiently waiting for another Queen DVD-A. Why they chose The Game as the second release isn't clear, I truly wish it had been SHA or Queen II -- think of how really beautiful Nevermore and Some Day One Day would sound! And Seven Seas of Rhye....PLEASE bring it on, Brian and Roger!! And SOON!!

You're totally right! I've read (some Queen website a long time ago) it's Deacy's favourite of all Queen albums. It's good but not as brill as Queen II or SHA.
I took the liberty of emailing Mr May with that question; let's see if I get a response. Most likely not since he's busy globetrotting for the musical. He and Roger must be SO jetlagged by now!!
(I read about the merchandising for the musical on his website too. OMG, it's going to be like something KISS thought up for their last tour!! AIIIIIIEEEEEE!!!!)
