Fair. But I stand by my intended point that labelling the home video release of a movie that is even now showing in cinemas a "new Freddie release" is unjustifiably disingenuous.

I think the Beatles did a few years ago.


Yes and it looks stunning too - on some pieces you wouldn't think they were filmed in the 60s.

Definitely need a comprehensive Videos set now.

Right. But I think this is one of the very less examples...I couldn't name another.

I hope this will change in the future, especially since some music videos are so well made and popular - like many of Queen. I also think it would be in the personal interest of Brian to restore those...he loves to do it with photography and should be interested in restoring those music videos (or at least some of them - don't think he's eager to restore "Body Language" or sth. like that xD ). Hope they'll do it some time and release it on Blu-ray. The DVDs are great and have much bonus material, too. If they'd add more, restore the videos and add the missing ones, it would be a hell of a Blu-ray package!

I don't even care if they're on Blu-ray, I just want them to finish off the series and release the ones that are missing from the existing DVDs.

Well, Mr Bad Guy...according to Freddie he recorded 20-22 songs...so there must be a lot of content still in the can...
it's so easy...

I think with b sides and stuff on the solo boxset etc we've heard just about everything. Don't think there's 10+ never been heard before songs sitting in the archives.

I suppose you can make an argument that the movie hype means now/next year is the perfect time for a Freddie solo release but the film wasn't exactly an advert for his solo stuff.
