Hi everyone

I'm considering buying these 2 DVD's from Tesco.com in the UK. Has anyone bought these and are they worth it? Is there anything new / unseen here? Or are they likely to just be the Magic Years ReHashed volume 6 ... ?

Magic Moments:

Becoming Queen:

Both are inofficial and therefore they have no Queen music which is a bit weird. "Magic Moments" is pretty useless while "Becoming Queen" has some interesting old interview footage (audio) and nice interviews with the Ibex/Wreckage members who share some affectionate recollections of Freddie.
But both are for the "must have all" type of collectors, really.

A stepford would buy them because they are Queen related and then praise them because they are so good and might win over new fans. A fan who buys them because s/he just has to own everything with the name Queen on it but still realises when a such a product is crap, is just a poor addict who deserves our sympathy.

I was thinking of buying 'Becoming Queen'...looks alright but if I catch some sort of disease from it then, I'd better swerve 'round it.

I've read reports that it's given out gonorrhea: the silent killer.
