I decided to open a new thread and copy what I wrote in another one. A call for real experts dedicated collectors, people with apssion and talent... We can do something BIG!

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q_FORUM_ID=4&Q_FORUM_NAME=Sharing+The+Music+-+Announce&TOPIC_SUBJECT=The+Queen+bootleg+DVD%3b+uninterested+shit&Q=770923&page=1

An idea. Create a group of people. Let's make a group of people, devoted enough to trading and trying to obtain really rare (or interesting) bootlegs (audio or DVD, whatever) in as low quality as possible... Someone was talking about The Who fans... Let's do just that! Maybe not spending thousands of pounds, but give what we can- someone will find something nice, someone else will edit it nice, someone else will make menu and so on- different people have different talents... We don't have to live near each other- and I guess an initiative like that could work! All we would need is few people with some real skills, knowledge and dedication, people who DO care about quality, people who don't think there's no difference between mp3 and WAVE... What we need is good collectors, good editors, dedicated fans... Well? I think we COULD do it- the question is- who would be up for it? I think that could work, don't you?

We can complain until we're blue on the face- that won't change anything. We can- on the other hand- join our forces and do something... By joining the efforts in trading we could easier find more interesting stuff (one person will make contact wih someone in point A, the other one will make contact with someone in point B- they want each others gigs, we are in the middle, we get both of them). Three or six people trading and devoting their time will have more chances than one. We could pull it off!!!
I'm up for it. Anyone else? I'm dead serious- that could work...! At the end of the day that could benefit various projects... Our knowledge of the band would be greater, it could better any future Queen Live projects ;) and it would maybe result in few things (CDs, videos) that could compete with Who / Floyd / Zeppelin stuff... That's what I can think of...

Already one collector responded (hi Julien! will Email you soon!). :) We can do it BIG. And ignore Trancers, mp3 lovers, eBay sellers and stuff... At the end of the day- we can put some Love and Dedication to the band into the project that could change the community... At the moment Queen fans/traders community, compared to others is a joke... Can we change it? We can't change others, that's for sure. But we can do something OURSELVES. "You must be the change you want to see in the world" said a wise man once ;)

Nice idea, I'm actually allready DOING something simillar for myself. I have edited in the cut tracks from Brian's Brixton gig and Queen's Budapest gig (audio from bootlegs, video from different parts of the night) and I'm quite satisfied. Currently I'm trying to do some miracles with Knebworth. I WOULD be interested in helping you - pittrek (at) hotmail (dot) com.

And after seeing some of that I know it would be BRILLIANT! :D
In 15 minutes I got 3 Emails! Seems like that within the community there's a need for something like that!!!
I guess the next logical step (Julien's idea) is an independent, beautifully looking, and full of all possible information web site, with FORUM (without discussions about John's wherebouts ;) ) as a direct contact point.

Great idea.

Trying to think of ways to contribute!

If we could improve the Knebworth recordings that would be something.

So if some people like to have their stuff in mp3 we should respect their decision. It's their collection. I'm not saying the mp3s should be used for trading. That's an obvious NO.

That's all I mean by that. By "mp3 lovers" I meant people who were spreading mp3 gigs and passing them as losseless...

I'd also like to help as I'm sure my audio skills are up to it!
Also, since I just released two dvd's for my theatre, I'm up to video editing, authoring and artwork duties. But I'm guessing there are better artwork makers out there!

Peace,
Adam.

Could I make a wee suggestion? Could you add a little section for discussion/swapping/whatever for vinyl bootleg lovers?

Some of us old dinosaurs are still about...

It's only a suggestion...if it doesn't float your boat, no problem...

Cheers
