Right, first off can someone please delete the torrent with Earl's Court instead of Earls Court from the tracker!
Had this on my HD since I downloaded it from STG last year. Thanks to the original seeder. The info file follows and I'll upload parts 2,3 and 4 once this is seeded.

This may very well be my favorite Queen concert captured on video. Highly recommended! If you're a
Queen fan, you NEED this one! It's a long show with a varied setlist (see below) featuring several songs that
you'll seldom (or never) find decent quality live video of, plus all the live favorites, including an electrifying
Brighton Rock. This is Queen at the very top of their form - not to be missed!
This show probably would have been released officially if not for some minor microphone problems. They aren't very bad or terribly frequent, but I guess everything has to be 100% perfect for an official release.
Other than the microphone issues, the audio quality of this concert is among the best of its era. To comapare it
to a more well-known show, I'd say the audio is noticably better than "Live at the Rainbow" (much less analog hiss!),
while the video quality is worse by about the same degree; slight occasional flickering at the very top of the screen
(not distracting) along with other features and patterns in the video seem to suggest that this particular cap was
from an aging VHS tape and that the capper used a smoothing filter when encoding to cut down on analog video noise.
This is the first of many caps with a "YV Encoding" tag at the beginning. I don't know who this generous fellow is,
but I wish I did, because we all owe him a great deal of thanks for the many high-quality, rare, Queen caps he
has made available for his fellow fans!
