Well Richy, it seems to be a streaming type of .mov file which would point to a file on your own hard drive, so it doesn't do us much good I'm afraid.

Yeah even with Quicktime updates, all I get is white screen and no sound. Very exciting though.

Well it's somewhere around 1976 I think. It's not the Hyde Park gig, that's for sure.

USA gig from A Night At The Opera perhaps?

Don,

You need Quicktime 7 to view this. It is h.264

It's Uniondale, yes.

Beautiful footage!

And yes, you need Quicktime.

Thanks for that sample R.Mercury.
Very nice video quality.
I assume this is from that 16 minutes audience video that exists from Uniondale 77? Can you please post the list of songs that are in this video?

Okay everybody, it's story time!

It was at Madison Square Garden in New York 2-5-77, Queen's first gig there. Someone filmed nearly the entire show, until they were caught by a security guard. After the show, the security guard brought the bootlegger backstage, and Freddie Mercury was passing by, and asked why this person was backstage. After the security guard told the story, Freddie asked for the video tape, and told him to let the bootlegger go. So, this film is probably in the possession of Mary Austin.

For the following night, in Uniondale, the bootlegger tried his luck again, as he had a bit of film left (film was very expensive in those days - usually at least 5x the price of your ticket). He managed to get a ticket at the last minute, and was able to film 16 minutes of great footage from the second row. My copy is a first generation from the master, and the video quality is great, considering its age! The audio is pretty muffled, but understandably so. Most 8mm recorders in those days couldn't even record audio.
