Product Description

Queen's greatest hits are presented on this 2-disc DVD, unedited and with superior sound and picture quality. The original videos have been painstakingly restore and enahnced by famed video director David Mallet, in DTS 5.1 surround-sound mixes. Also in

Amazon.com

You haven't heard Queen's greatest hits until you've experienced them in surround sound on Greatest Video Hits 1. Disc 1 includes 16 of Queen's most popular singles, restored and remixed in 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS, and the results are nothing less than spectacular. Reformatted for widescreen TVs, Queen's early videos are visually basic (typically combining lip-synched band footage with concert performance clips), but they effectively chronicle the group's musical and stylistic evolution, and "Bicycle Race" includes previously unseen footage of an all-nude female bicycle race! (Optional commentary is provided for all videos by guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor, with archival quotes from the late Freddie Mercury and bassist John Deacon.)

Disc 2, while not remixed, features six excellent videos (including the previously unseen "Liar"), and a hidden, alternate-edit video of "Bohemian Rhapsody" originally seen on Britain's Top of the Pops (and accessible by entering "Title 10, Chapter 1" on your DVD remote). "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the obvious highlight of both discs, and its history (both audio and video) is thoroughly explored, including May's fascinating deconstruction of the song's original studio recording tracks. Mandatory viewing for Queen fans, Video Hits 1 will leave you begging for Video Hits 2. --Jeff Shannon

Finally the band that many credit as the pioneers of the promotional video get their work released on DVD for the world to see. With pretty much the same track listing as their multi-million selling Greatest Hits album, the most loved and memorable songs from the early career of Queen's Freddie Mercury, Brian May, roger taylor, and John Deacon are showcased in wonderful fashion. Here's what you get:
Disc1:
01. Bohemian Rhapsody
02. Another One Bites The Dust
03. Killer Queen
04. Fat Bottomed Girls
05. Bicycle Race
06. You're My Best Friend
07. Don't Stop Me Now
08. Save Me
09. Crazy Little Thing Called Love
10. Somebody To Love
11. Spread Your Wings
12. Play The Game
13. Flash
14. Tie Your Mother Down
15. We Will Rock You
16. We Are The Champions
Disc 2:
01. Now I'm Here
02. Good Old Fashioned Loverboy
03. Keep Yourself Alive
04. Liar
05. Love Of My Life
06. We Will Rock You (Fast Live Version)
Bonus hidden video: Bohemian Rhapsody (alternative edit)
Plus a Bohemian Rhapsody Documentary telling all about the recording or Bohemian rhapsody in the studio, and the making of the video for it later.
And you get Brian May and Roger Taylor Commentary, a Picture Gallery, and Queen-online homepage links.
All Disc 1 tracks re colour graded and pan and scanned for 16:9, 5.1 Audio mix , PCM Stereo mix.
So hurry up and get yours today, so that they will see that U.S. fans do still love this band and their music, to gurantee that they will release a Greatest Hits II DVD!

Queen is a true legendary group in the history of rock and roll. Freddy Mercury is a great showman, Brian May is a genius at the guitar, Roger Taylor is awesome on the drums, John Deacon is a great bass player. Together, they made Rock and Roll history. It is unfortunate that they let the opinions of MTV affect their decision not to return to the states. They had lots of fans that remained loyal, even when they did not come back to perform.

The audio tracks are great. The extras on the making of Bohemian Rhapsody are fantastic. I wish John Deacon also gave them interviews. Freddy Mercury was an absolute genious. How they created their music is absolutely marvelous. Having videos like this available for legendary groups is a great benefit of growing up in the MTV generation. I particularly enjoyed the Bicycle Race video.

I am absolutely THRILLED with this DVD!! As a teen from the 70's and 80's, I miss this group terribly! Freddie Mercury is brought back to life in some of his finest works!The restoration of the videos are unbelievable! My girls are getting their first opportunity to hear Queen and they love them. NOTE: The video of I want to ride my bicycle has nudity in it and should be kept from young viewers eyes!

Queen's Greatest Video Hits 1 is a two disc set, which features the band's music videos from 1973 to 1980. Disc one contains the videos for: "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites The Dust," "Killer Queen" (taken from "Top Of The Pops"), "Fat Bottomed Girls," "Bicycle Race" (a new edit from residcovered lost footage), "You're My Best Friend," "Don't Stop Me Now," "Save Me," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Somebody To Love," "Spread Your Wings," "Play The Game," "Flash," "Tie Your Mother Down," "We Will Rock You," and "We Are The Champions." All of the videos are restored and shown in 16:9 widescreen format, and the audio has been remixed for optimal DTS 5.1 Surround Sound. Disc one also features an option to hear audio commentary from Queen. For me, the audio commentary was rather disappointing (there were a lot of long, silent spots in the commentary; while I don't expect talking over a whole video without stopping, however, I felt there were quite a few silent spots that lasted at least 45 seconds, if not longer).

Disc two features six videos ("Now I'm Here [Live]," "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy" (from "Top Of The Pops"), "Keep Yourself Alive," "Liar," "Love Of My Life," and "We Will Rock You [Fast Live Version]"). Also included as a hidden Easter Egg is an alternate edit of the "Bohemian Rhapsody" video (including some rather cheesy-looking CG flames during the opening shot of the video, an alternate angle shot of Freddie at the piano, and more cut aways from Brian during the guitar solo; personally, I felt that, for the most part, the changes to the video weren't highly noticeable, and question whether this alternate edit should have even been included on the set).
