Is it just me, or does anyone else notice on the video for the song "Under Pressure (Rah Mix)", that the sound is rather metallic sounding a bit, as if DoRo incorrectly applied frequency conversions resulting in aliasing effects (like when you would convert 44.1kHz CD quality wav files to 48kHz quality without doing it properly...)

Why is this?

I noticed it on the CD single, but figured it was just due to the Quicktime compression.

I assume you're speaking of a VHS version or something though, which I haven't seen/heard.

It is a slightly different mix of the song though.. I believe one bit is extended slightly and they added crowd noise of course. I remember when I re-dubbed it for a VCD version to watch on the big screen, I had to extend a section to get it back in sync. Was happy to eliminate the crowd though :)

It is the VHS release (Edit: of "Greatest Flix III") (and the LD & VCD releases as well, I think, since they use the same source) that I am talking about, indeed.


ED: I apologize. I didn't realize that the above post wasn't directly referring to GFIII as I previously assumed

No, I'm not wrong. It HAS been released already.

The video I'm referring to is "Greatest Flix III", which was released back in 1999 alongside the "Greatest Hits 3" CD.

The video was released on VHS, LaserDisc (Japan only), and VCD (in certain Asian countries, officially - Taiwan in particular).

The VHS edition should be still available.

The LaserDisc might be out of print, as the last LaserDiscs were released in Japan in 2002. JPopHelp.com still has a few copies of the LD edition left.

As for the VCD, I cannot comment on it. It might still be available, but I've yet to find a copy online.

Oh, and according to www.queenvision.com there is also a Japanese jukebox LaserDisc that also has the Rah Mix video version of UP, so that would make two LD releases for UP (RM)

It was released on UK CD single as well. 'Making of' footages on this CD single are present too.

I just took the video and synched it to the original 1981 track. Sounds better than that crap. I love being a video editor.

I believe one of the official Asian VCD's also include this bonus footage as well.
