My vote goes to "Earl's Court 1977"
The set list is great!

Hammersmith 1979.
Queen the top band of that time.

Hammersmith '79 is indeed the best out there on a show quality/video+audio quality basis, as far as we know.

However, Greg stated that Queen Productions has 'lost' the audio multitrack, so they want that recovered first, then they are willing to release it, due to great demand.

There's no market for pre-1977 material, I fear...

Nah, the quasi-operatic part of "March Of The Black Queen" was completely out of tune, and Freddie had too much coke before the gig.

I mean, Queen can't go round publishing a DVD that'd get an X-rating, and I can't see much else happening considering the fact that he fucked a roadie on-stage during "Get Down, Make Love".

The looks of jealousy in Roger's eyes were priceless, though.

Kensington Nov '91 - the fruit tour!!!

(to the tunes of We are the Champions)

I had a fruit
It stuck in my mouth

I have no power
To get this bitch out

And here comes my lover
he's such a dumb ass

He just doesn't get it
I need this shit out.

We are so fruity, my friends

Haven't actually seen hammy 79 yet. but if the visual quality is as good as say, Wembley 86, then I am all for it. I personally think that Freddie had to not only be vocally but also charismatically at his peak during the filming of the next relese. I think that we need a show that is the Live Aid of the 70s, Freddie had so much charisma during Live Aid, if one of the 70s concerts was judged to be like this, then it would easily be a bestseller.


- Visual quality is no issue with the official tapes, and even the bootleg video looks good. Plus, the lighting is far superior to Wembley.

- Hammersmith '79 is noted as being one of Freddie's best vocal performances ever, and is certainly a gig with the whole band in prime shape

- The audience was fine during the show.

I would like to see some NotW-material get released, I'm dying to hear a live version of It's Late...

But Hammersmith Odeon '75 is genious. Best version of Ogre Battle there, as far as I'm concerned. But the show is kinda short...

Is Hammersmith '79 available as a torrent? For some reason I've never actually seen that one yet.

Audio / video wise the obvious choice is budapest and the fortcoming motreal

after that it will be interesting to see what they choose to put out.

as far as I know, they will have no more concert shot on film, so it could be anything

my guess is that Hammersmith 75 / Rainbow 74 will he released as one, seeing as they are both pretty short gigs

and I think Hammersmith 79 will be released alone, together with highlights from the 79 tour (paris, japan..)

and of course; in between this, I'm sure Queen & Paul will do more concerts and release live dvds...
