Today (well, here in Argentina is still 18/9) were 30 years of the Hyde Park concert.
I think it was a very important gig, very good too, with good and rare versions of several songs. I like "39", "You Take My Breath Away" and "The Prophet's Song" a lot. And so, we have video versions of "Flick Of The Wrist", "Sweet Lady", that they didn't play in the Odeon concert.
Recall, too, it was at Hyde Park, and there were record audience, 150.000 people, (and today is hard to sell-out with 150.000 people) a free concert, in the middle of ANATO and ADATR.......
What do you think of this gig???

yeah, i think next to live aid, it could be queens best concert...the quality on the tapes/audio isnt the greatest, but it was an awesome show...they played nearly every a night at the opera song, and the prophets song was nice to hear in an almost complete version, freddie improv-ed the echos awesome (the echo machine was not working) and '39 was 100% perfect that night. near the end of bohemian rhapsody, freddie was tearing up almost because the audience participation was soo awesome. great show.

Oh yes I like Hyde Park concert, though it wasn't their best, imo. But it was a great show, even though such a huge audience was the first time for them. Freddie's talking was interesting producing the atmosphere of an open-air concert. And what are impressive are that the set list was rare-"Flick Of The Wrist" and "Sweet Lady" were included- and that Freddie used falsetto in "You Take My Breath Away". What I like are besides "White Queen", "Stone Cold Crazy", "Keep Yourself Alive" and "Liar" from it.
I hope much more from it will be released as an official DVD.

The echo definitely was working. The soundboard recording device must have crapped out... because the echoes in The Prophet's Song are loud and clear on the audience recording.

"A 30 Year Anniversary DVD"

What a missed oppotunity from QP.
Think their old 'business heads' are flagging.

I wouldn't.

Budapest is a MUCH superior recording technically.

Yeah, no kidding... that would've been good for marketing.
