Can someone help here ?

The re-upload from Hammersmith 75-12-24 has a problem (broken mpeg) at the very begining of 'Killer Queen'.

Is it possible for anyone who has this version without this problem to upload just the first VOB file for us to correct it.

Anyway thanks for Ginger01 for the effort to help all of us who has been waiting the chance to get this great concert.

Hi Nickncm,

Killer Queen is on the second VOB (VTS_01_2.VOB) which starts during Borhap and finishes during the Brighton Rock guitar solo. I watched it and did not see anything amiss, except maybe for a very minor tape flutter which may well have been on the original. In any case it does not prevent me (at least) from enjoying this.

I'm not sure exactly what a broken mpeg is (sorry for my ignorance!) but I wonder i there is just a transmission error (this does unfortunately happen). Could I suggest you download this again and see if the problem persists?

Hope you manage to sort it out! :)

Have a similar problem. The DVD should be about 4.1 GB big. But after downloading the file the torrent-programm had an error and so only 2 GB are downloaded correctly.

Will have to try to do this again, but it took over two weeks to get this download so this is a bit strange!

The verdict.

After reading these replies i downloaded it to check for you.

1.It is lossless(bar generation copies)

2.There is a distinct cut at the start of Killer Queen(you can hear it more when using headphones) & there is slight blocking for 1/2 a second but it does play through & enjoyment is not spoilt.

3.Its not the Rock Masters LD version but is a low gen VHS of the old WoWoW network broadcast.No announcer

All is well
