I bought a video from an eBayer in Ireland - Queen Hyde Park 1976 http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c138/carboengine/aqhydepark.jpg http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c138/carboengine/aqhydepark2.jpg It was described as being professionaly filmed. It has a QTV symbol in the right lower corner, and in the left lower corner is a running video recorder time clock. The picture and the sound quality are minimum good, as advertised on eBay, so I am ok with what I received. It is always great fun to see yet another version of Freddie and all. At the end of the concert are some miscellaneous add-ons - one being a TV interview with Jim Hutton - what a sweetheart! I was very impressed with him. I paid not much for the video - I think the postage was more than the item. My questions to Queenzone experts:
. The video cover shows Freddie in his red and white striped shorts, but he does not wear those shorts in this concert. (Duh, someone out there is messing with covers/video.) However, I am curious to know during what tour/what concert(s) did Freddie wear these shorts? I have seen a lot of pictures of the shorts, but I have never seen a live episode.
. What is QTV?
. Was Hyde Park ever professionally released, or is this the best there is?
. Was this the first time Freddie wore a white leotard, and did he wear it in other venues, or was it a one-time thing? It is amazing that anyone can sing and move around on stage with so much confidence in such a skin-tight outfit. Who else could sit at a piano in a white leotard?!!! That flat stomach! There isn't an ounce of fat on him.
. For those who saw Hyde Park, it seemed to me it would have been a somewhat difficult concert to "stand" through, especially because the first 3/4's of it was rather operatic, what with the White Queen and the Black Queen, etc., but the last 1/4 was more rock and roll. I know it was free, and even now, 30 years later, it still seems on the cutting edge. It is always fun to view the many incarnations of Queen.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

- Freddie wore those shorts during the A Day At The Races tour in 1977. Too bad, we only have got pictures. No video material is known yet. You can see John is playing his MusicMan Stingray-bassguitar, that's the proof of it, really. He began to use it during the Races tour, but not on the early shows. Video of Uniondale proofs this. He probably used it only for the European gigs and the latter American gigs, such as Los Angeles 1977.
- QTV = Queen TeleVision. It was recorded by them.
- Hyde Park isn't offically released. Yes, there is better footage available. It's in the archives of QueenProductions. It also depends on what kind of generation your video is. Your video is probably 7th or 8th generation copy or something like that. And it's just a copy of the bootlegvideo, not the mastertape!
- I think 1976 was the first time he began to wore the white leotard. He also wore it during the early stage of the Races tour. (The American tour, to be precise)

QTV is the "in house" TV channel at conventions.

Thank you for this info. My answer was a guess. Your answer is more logical.

Yes of course, here's the link. http://yeeshkul.com/forum/forum.php
Sorry I took so long to answer, I had to leave for work and I've just returned. Early Queen is always welcome at Yeeshkul. I've posted two Queen audience recordings so far and they were warmly welcomed. Cheers and thanks once more.

Barry Durex could you please pass the linkk to the 1979 Paris on Yeeshkul? I can't find it. I'd like to take the opporunity to thank Pittrek: I've enjoyed a lot with your productions, especially Emperors of Japan and the Earls Court Dvd. It's an honour sir.

Oh it's Kurgan's version, yes, that one is nice, but the QTV logo version has better picture quality.

I have different opinion, but we all have our own one I guess.
The Paris '79 (QTV logo version) also has audio flutter / buzzing.

They all do.

The bootleg LP from an audience tape ultimately sounds better than any of the videos.

That said - the few clips from documentaries are salivating.
