YV: I have edited the 1978 thread accordingly, and cut out this error.

It did read "Queen: Unreleased Tiswas ATV Interview 24th December 1979
John Deacon/Roger Taylor/Sally James Interview"

As you see it was dated 1979. It was a cut and paste mistake, and I have pasted correctly above.

Also: do you know the names of these programmes? I know the two 1979 Kampuchea tracks were screened on VH1 recently.

Munich 79 was produced by the Südfunk Stuttgart (a regional public TV station), the name of the show was "Musicbox mit Thomas Gottschalk" 45 minutes, about 25 minutes concert footage, the rest about the venue, stage, band interview etc.

Kampuchea features in a programme called "The Queen Special" produced by Don Normann and Jim Beach (therefore we know that QP have the concert in excellent quality)The progarmme aired on German TV but the spoken parts were voiced over. About 50 minutes.

track list
01 Now I´m Here
02 Another One Bites The Dust (Video)
03 You´re My Best Friend
04 Flash (Video)
05 We Will Rock You (Fast Version)
06 Let Me Entertain You
07 Don´t Stop Me Now
08 Killer Queen + I´m In Love With My Car
09 Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Unless these are whizzing by my eyes far too quickly for me to catch, did I miss the June-July 1979 sessions for The Game, or will be those included in the next installment?

Serves me right for not viewing this board much anymore...

And, of course, this is extremely much-appreciated, John.

Lester: You missed nothing. I just thought I would put all the Game stuff under one umbrella. Of course it will hark back to '79, but in the meantime it was a divison of convenience.

It seemed logical to me, I hope that you guys see it that way also.

I'm sure this is a typo, but the Tiswas interview would have been November rather than December. I have it on VHS somewhere and distinctly remember them talking about playing the "new" NEC in Birmingham that evening (which would indeed have placed it at 24th November 1979).

What a great resource.

Queen was the first band ever to play at the NEC and this was on the 5th of December 1980. I have once read a newspaper article about that.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
Also, some Japanese magazines claim that the TV broadcast was not from the 13th of April 1979 concert but 25th of April. I must check my audio bootleg of this show and compare it to the video.

In Decmber 1980, they were the first band to play the NEC Arena, which is only part of the Whole NEC. There are many other exhibition halls on the site, where concerts took place before the Arena itself (which is quite cool and looks like a giant spider) was finished.

Please, could an owner of the Tokyo 4-24-79 and/or 4-25-79 audience recordings check their copy to see if it matches the video? I don't have either of these shows, and I'd like to know which night the video comes from.

Thanks!

I have the Tokyo 23/04-25/04/79 recordings and I can confirm that the 30 minutes video that is in circulation is definately not from the 24-04 or at least not in its' entirety. I haven't done a song by song comparison yet, but it's very obvious on some of the tracks. For example on the video Freddie introduces LMEY in Japanese which matches the 25-04 show perfectly while on the audience recording of the 24-04 show he does another introduction("..are you ready to rock, are you ready to roll...?"). The 25-04 audience recording is pretty good and clear and I'm quite sure most of the tracks on the video are from the 25-04 show. I'm almost 100% sure about WWRY(fast), LMEY and the (part of the) medley.

Fantastic! Thanks a lot for this.

So this could mean that more than one Tokyo 79 show is resting in the vaults...

has anyone ever heard of a vinyl copy of" live killers" where side one has been mispressed with charles gounod's "faust" instead of the listed songs?
I have looked on the internet for any reference to the mispressing of this album but, i can't find anything.

It's kind of weird to think that this thread was started 8 years ago. Makes you feel.. small.
