To me, the majority of those are great.impossible to pick 1.

Wembley # 1 was almost a revelation.
Rainbow 74 was, mostly, terrific

Argh. So very hard to pick between Rainbow and the DOOL documentary.

Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Probably Days of Our Lives for me. It was a real rollercoaster ride of a watch, and the one I've gone back to most since.

Definitely Rainbow for me. Love that there's 2 shows in there and in many ways they are similar but even though they are the same year a lot happened in between (Brian's illness, the US tour, an album) so they were very different at the same time.

Kind of a shame that Forever is one of the options, an album that features 2 long awaited 'lost' tracks as well as a Made in Heaven style reworking of a Freddie solo track and in the end, no one really cared.

Definitely Days of Our Lives for me. Lots of new information in there and great interviews from Brian, Roger, Jim Beach, etc. Close second would be Queen in 3D. Nearly 85% or more of the photos in there had never been seen before.

I'm yet to vote. For mine, I love all the items listed above (albeit I don't own the USB Orb thing or the vinyl Studio Collection), so it is a TOUGH choice.

I've narrowed it down to 'Forever' and the 'Days Of Our Lives' doco. Basically, at least here in Australia, those two were the most noticeable in the general public when they came out. I know so many people that watched the DOOL doco on tv that aren't Queen fans per se. I was sent numerous text messages those nights or was talked to at work the next day by people saying how moved they were with them and how incredible Queen were, ect.

And when 'Forever' came out, it was heavily promoted on radio and was rather visible in music stores. Again, people were telling me that there's a new Queen cd that they saw in the shops the day before, ect, and it has duets with Freddie and Michael Jackson on it. They tell me these things like I don't know, but it's nice that people recognise my passion and think they're providing me with new info..!

I think I'm leaning towards the DOOL doco, because it was a two-parter on tv that was easily and freely accessible to a huge amount of people, AND it was something us Queen fans enjoyed (which is different to various compilations that cater to average music listener and not so much to us dedicated Queen folk).

Days of Our Lives, for sure. I've gone back to watch that countless times. Not only do I have it on Blu-Ray, but I also have it on my iPod touch so I can watch it whenever I want. The footage is spectacular!

Other contenders are Rainbow and Odeon. We'd been asking for 70s concerts for what seems like an eternity, and they finally delivered. And dare I say they exceeded expectations with some of the extra content.

Forever was supposed to be great...but lacked that punch I was hoping for when I first heard about it. At one point I thought it would actually be a fully fleshed out album. But nope. Just another cash grab with a couple of great new songs (not including that horrible production of TMBMTLTT with MJ).
