Behind-the-scenes archive documentary where BBC music presenter Bob Harris follows Queen as they record their 6th album, NEWS OF THE WORLD, shoot videos, promote it, rehearse and ultimately embark on a groundbreaking tour of North America.
I just finished watching this DVD on my Roku player via Netflix. When I read that the release of this concert was a rocky road, with the band not particularly interested in its release, and not pleased with the director it answered my question as to why it had not been released earlier. Fortunately for all of us, Queen finally agreed. Of course modern technology makes it possible to remix and edit the original tapes and whatever else they do.
It's the best of everything. I had the wonderful experience of 'discovering' Queen at Live-Aid. Watching Freddie take control of the audience, especially during Radio Gaga, was a rare experience. He owned the stage and the audience. I became a fan for life.
This concert is a must-see. As is true of most of Queen's music, it is not dated and their songs are so good I never tire of hearing/seeing them again.
