How many copies of this rare footage is really out
there!!! Because as I have heard other people have
classified it as a promo video plus fact being it
was the greatest performance queen ever did that
might the subject. but to get to the basic point
has anyone in this entire forum poses a this video
or know were it can be obtained the 45 minute version. I know this sounds like a request but
I just want to know how many copies exist and if
possible were I can get one for any price if nessecary.



Thank You

I got the complete 2CD of the show


And what would it take, Mr X, for you to share that?

Quite a lot I would presume...

I think this show has a mythos about it now. I've seen some bits and and heard most of it. It's ok, but the absolute best performance they ever had? Nah...

Weird how no-one is sharing the entire thing.

Peace,
Adam.

I have the 2 CD audio version too, and it's IMO not even close to be called the best gig ever. Even though maybe 4-5 songs are very very good. It's so overrated because so few have it.

So pure, I hope your one is in excellent quality.
I don't give a flying fuck wether people do believe or don't wether I got it.

Now it's suspicious, because no-one said anything about you not having it... Hmmmm :S
Anyway, the gig is a bit overrated- it's really great- Fred's voice is in really awesome shape!- but it's defintely not their best performance. That's all. I absolutely agree that the whole "myth" is because of how rare the gig is... Or was? More and more ppl seem to have it... Anyway- are we talking here video or audio? I thought the guy who started it was asking about video...

No dear, it's perfect- that's not a problem.
Stop braging about it... Complexes?

Yeah..the "rarer" it is, the more excellent the gig. However..Houston is a fantastic show. After watching the video, I really don't understand why it couldn't be released..

Of course it is fantastic and it SHOULD be released. But the whole "myth" is just it- a myth

Another case of someone purporting to have something that they really don't have. And when they make statements like that, they generally shoot themselves in the foot like this Mr X has done here.

Makes you feel sad for them really.......

BTW, I would really love to share it, really I would love to. But the person from who I tradet it with just doesn't allow me. And if I would the people who also took a lot of efforts to get it will hate me.
Sorry you guys untill I get the permission I can't share it.



You, sir, are a giant Dildo.

I saw Houston 77 at the Breakthru conventions, and I see no reason why it can't be released. I think it is an essential concert to have (but unfortunately I do not). I recall Liar being unique with a brief quite guitar interlude after Roger's percussuion opening.


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!
