I recently bought this video via eBay. I thought, do I really need another Queen tape? But I am glad I got it. Queen looks like they are enjoying themselves. Freddie is very energetic, I would say frisky even. Jumping up and down on his toes like he does. Dashing back and forth across the stage. It is really kind of funny. He and Roger smiling at each other at times. Roger drumming his buns off and spitting into the air above him. It is only 78 minutes. The jacket says it was produced by Raincloud Productions Limited, Watanabe Music Pub. Made in Japan. Released by Apollon Inc. I do believe this is the best filmed concert tape of Queen I have ever seen. Switching scenes is slow and deliberate, and each shot is framed beautifully, and clear. It is nicely edited. Pleasing to watch. Has anyone else found Japanese taping of Queen to be excellent? On eBay I usually skip on byJapanese products, but now I am goiing to pay more attention.


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

The best performance of Crazy Little Thing I ever heard/seen. It's f*cking brilliant.

Actually from listening to the audience tape of this show I thought this was more of a sub par performance, but the video is really enjoyable to watch and they don't look like they were sick of touring at that point at all. And this one was filmed and edited together really well, nothing like the Tokyo'85 show.

I think I will contact them. Probably they have the full concert in their archives. Ask for a copy of the Master

The choruses of teo Torriate are horrible but there's an exhilarating version of Put Out The Fire.

Those cameramen shaking with their camera's like it are cocktails.
The show hasn't really got anything special!

BTW,

The tape is 60 minutes ;-)


Yes, you are right. The tape does say 58 minutes.

The jacket says it was released by Apollon Inc., if that is any help.

No, but it's on the second disc on the Queen On Fire Live At The Bowl-DVD. Choose gallery, there you go.

And there is a complete audience source available, with VG(-)quality.

I have this as well. Amazing how much his voice deteriorated since Live @ The Bowl. Not their finest hour to be filmed

No they dont, they tried to find it for the Bowl DVD but could only find the audio.

Love Brians guitar sound on this, the Pete Cornish set-up he used on the USA & Japan '82 tour's is IMO his best sound.


I love you for your mind baby give me your body.

The DVD version of Seibu is even better (sourced from Laser Disk and always available on ebay)

I watched it again. I don't see camera shake. To me it is Freddie bopping around so much he is going in and out of the frames. His stage antics are so dramatic in this one, I think it is great fun to watch!
