A good choice of photo too, not an obvious one but from their later era instead- I always liked the backstage photo from I Want It All.

Is the 1973-1980 one really worth seeing? As in, is there anything on there we haven't seen before a hundred times?

^ there's a part of it near the start when they are live in London i think. its either in 73 or 74 but it's not in the Rainbow. However it does tend 2 show quite a bit of Budapest in 86!!

Learn to read. This is a NEW DVD. The one you are talking about is from 1973-1980.

And this would be another disgrace and disappointment. This is nothing new. Wrong dates, no unseen stuff etc.

I'm not going to buy this.

I enjoyed the first one, though it didn't turn out to be as advertised. You may recall it was being promoted as a disc of rare live perfomances.. well it turned out to be a documentary with folks talking about Queen, album by album, and with clips of videos and live footage we've already seen.. sometimes the same clip repeated over and over, I would assume because they only have the right to use a certain amount of the footage.. LOL

But it was feature-length, 103 mins and even with its quirks, still entertaining.

I confess I love these unofficial documentaries.. even with their mistakes, their off-topic background music, their so-called 'experts' ;)

I have 5 so far and including Under Review 2, there are 3 more coming.

Available now:

Magic Moments
Becoming Queen
Under Review 1973-1980
Rock Legend: Stage-1 (Japan)
Rock Legend: Stage-2 (Japan)

Coming soon:

Under Review 1980 - 1991 (July 31 in the UK)
Music Box Biographical something (August 8, US)
Interviews: Bohemian Champions (August 15, US)

The first one's good if you want to hear esteemed opinions of rock journalists, listen to some chap play a Red Special replica and see a bit of unseen footage from 1978/79.

Therefore I won't be buying this one, and for the record...Magic Moments is awful.

Peter Stringfellow, a distinguished music expert, whatever next? Innuendo barely covered, no mention of the Game-mediocre as it was- no Queen songs, that same woman narrating who appears on Queen Under Review. Yes it's absoluely awful.

Is it really..i dont have any of the episodes...i trust and respect more "experienced" fans in their opinion of DVD's. Are you saying it is that awful that it isnt worth even buying? By the way, does it have a lot of critics blabbing on about Queen, in their stupid opinions?, because i hate that

What kind of footage from 1978/79? Can you post screenshots? Are you sure it isn't footage that's already in other documentaries or on bootlegs?
