Is this the biggest shite ever released under QUEEN baneer? Yep.
Highlights? Finding al the mistakes on the sleeve...? Watching and listening the badly edited Frankenstein of a song...? I mean- who can listen more than few times one song being made of tn different performances, edited terribly!!! It's crap. CRAP, CRAP, CRAP.
CRAP.
I don't think I've got anything nice to say about it... No, OK- My Melancholy Blues from Houston is all right... So is You Take My Breath Away from Earl's Court... Cut obviously, what's the point of releasing the whole song...

The idea was to present less common versions of songs, and also songs not often performed.

Unfortunately they got carried away and started chopping from one concert to another mid way through songs (sometimes more than once in each song).

They then compounded the error by mis-labelling dates, sources, and making layout errors on the packaging.

In summary: a good idea that then passed through the Queen Productions machine and emerged......less well.
