This is a must have for anyone who followed the band Queen, as well as a great pickup for those who have been introduced to the bands music after Freddie's passing. The disc (double disc) is currently the second of the series. The first covered the bands videos from early 1970's through 1980's Flash Gordon (movie soundtrack) and The Game. This one takes the band from 1981's Hot Space video's through 1988's the Miracle. There will probably be a third in the series in the next 14 months which would cover Made in Heaven and Innuendo videos.

Most of the tracks on this DVD were released after the bands popularity was killed by the Works (I Want To Break Free) video. There are a number of rare videos which unless you have the cable channel VH1 classic you won't see played again in the US. I found two that I had never seen before in Back Chat and Scandal.

Even though there are no tracks from Innuendo (his last album) on it, you can still see early signs of Freddie expressing his battle with Aids in some of the videos from the Miracle. Scandal would be the most obvious of this as its a direct attack on the British Tabloids.

This disc much like the first in the series has hidden material that was not listed on the album. On the first series there was a hidden second version of Bohemian Rhapsody. On this version there is hidden live concert footage as well as the Highlander movie version of "Who wants to live forever" video.
