Other music, TV, films and general interest
I know you are talking about the disc but I'm going to talk about the film.
The first time I saw this was the summer of '92 (I think) but it could have been a year later for all I know. It was titled "We Will Rock You" and was shown at an outdoor amphitheater (Blossom Music Center) as a Freddie tribute. I thought it would be a good time tailgating with fellow Queenies and then watching a concert on some bigger than life diamond vision screen. The promos on the radio let my imagination run away.
It turned out slightly different than I imagined. There were no tailgaters in the parking lot and it was disappointing and almost bizarre once inside. There were only a few hundred Queen fans spaced out in the 6000 capacity pavilion and virtually nobody on the lawn. I remember there being one concession stand open that was selling cold beer on an unseasonably cool and windy evening.
No worries, I'm going to enjoy a great Queen concert. Wrong! There was no crystal clear diamond vision and booming sound system! It appeared there were sheets hung up as a temporary movie screen that were rippling in the breeze and the cherry on top was the video and audio were never 100% synched up.
The whole thing seemed like an epitaph to my teen years of fandom.
Sorry...I got a little carried away.
I was privileged enough to be at the band's premiere of Hungarian Rhapsody in Sony's theatre in Golden Square, London. I was completely amazed by how crystal clear the picture was, and how the music just filled the theatre. The only time I've been to a screening of a Queen concert, and I was completely blown away.
