Hi there back again with hopefully a new topic i recently out of sheer boredom went into my vault of videos and watched The magic years volumes 1 2 and 3 and it took me back to when i first watched this way back in 1987?? i think that's right!!, and i really enjoyed watching these after nearly 19 years.

What really stood out though and it's my fave is volume 2 live killers in the making i really like the footage they show which at the time was new and unseen and shows queen at their live best.

I just wondered what you guys thought about it at the time or now even but i know one thing we are well overdue this on official dvd and with a lot more to offer.



Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

It's a DoRo-production, so that says it all. It's still quite nice, though. But, it could be much better.

I bought it when it first came out, I watched it all the time, haven't seen it in years many because it's been cut up and shown in just about eveything DoRo have done since which was a real shame, at the time it was great to seen unreleased stuff, now I think it's the only time they took a camera with them!

The documentary was alright but then was rendered obsolete once the Champions Of The World documentary came out which went up to Made in Heaven. Seeing Roger with a beard was funny(he looked a bit like Kenny Rogers). Then watching the part on Freddie's passing was very sad.
