Well, my vote would have to be A Day at the Races! There is not enough said about the album, and often do I find myself pondering upon why wasn't it considered such a magnicent album? It certainly, without a doubt in my mind, was an album of great measures, an album that has such beautiful transitions between each track! It's not connected track by track of couse, but there is this thing that excites me everytime I give it my up most attention and expectation as it were.

However, this idea of a documentary compiled by Queenzoners has been thought up before, and to my knowledge they were never completed. It seems nearly impossible to compile such a video through the contacts you meet on the internet, then again that's just me. Have fun with it my friend. You heard my vote and I'd love to see it finished!

Cheers!!!

That may be true, but it wasn't long ago that this idea sprung out of nowhere. Unfortunatly I don't believe it was finished. Either way I support your ambition to create a documentary. :)

If I had enough material I would be able to put it all together. I've already did a few documentary's for various clients.
But you'd have to get someone who has great knowledge of Queen's history to overlook the whole project.

I vote for Hot Space.

Primarily because I'd like you all to break out your parachute pants and vaseline.

Dirty, dirty Queenzoners.

Oh, a documentary.

If you pick SHA, the live of 1974 at the Rainbow cannot be ignored. Sound and video are really nice.

Yes, because 90% of the sound comes from the studio and not from the concert

Really? I didn't know...I've seen that live on video, didn't sound anything like the studio version...or were the songs re-recorded?
It's a shame, but still good video!

Elizabeth,

No - the audio of the "released" version of Live At The Rainbow featured track after track of overdubbed backing vocals. This was present at the theatrical release (which was shown before screenings of Led Zeppelin's The Song Remains The Same) and also, sadly, the Box Of Tricks version.

It's not known whether the vaults contain the complete, unedited audio and visual record.
