Fans of Queen may know that the group now tours with Paul Rodgers. This DVD features Queen with their original lead singer the late Freddie Mercury. The concert was filmed over two nights back in 1981. Queen was at the height of their early 80's success when they packed the house with over 18,000 fans.
The concert film was originally titled "We Will Rock You," when it was released in the United States back in 1984. Now titled, "Queen Rock Montreal," this concert film will make a great addition to one's Queen collection.
Songs performed include "We Will Rock You," "Under Pressure," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "Another One Bites The Dust," and "We Are Champions" among other classic Queen songs. Bonus features include a brand new audio commentary with Brian May and Roger Taylor.
This release does not include Queen's Live Aid performance. The Queen Rock Montreal & Live Aid is a separate release.
However certain things didn't sound as good, like the "thunderstorm intro". I always used to stick the prior WWRY disc in to show off my sound system to friends, and the new version lacks the intensity of the sound of the prior release. It sounds so much more intense on the WWRY DTS version because that mix cleverly makes much more use of the rear surrounds which create this *big* atmosphere/ambiance for the bands grand entrance. Instead, they chose to mix the crowd noise in the rear surrounds. Try to A/B both disc if you have them and you will see what I mean. I guess this was done to be more realistic from a concert seat standpoint(band- front speakers, crowd- rear speakers). I should mention that the sequences done with delay(or echo) do make use of the surrounds.
I believe the drums are mixed a little bit louder on the newer release and they sound very good. The guitar is low at points like on the lead on the fast version of WWRY, but the fading of the guitar volume up and down found on the prior release seems more cleaned up on Rock Montreal. Less of a swishing sound.Read more ›
If you have the Rush Exit - Stage Left disk, look for the Molson sign that permanently hangs at that location in the Montreal arena. So cool!
Check it out, one of the best recorded concerts you'll see.
The only bummer was the audience, who sat their like it was some classical musical recital where you have to shush. Maybe a couple dozen fans were up and jumping and moving to the music. The other kept their seats like they were sitting on crazy glue. At one point Freddie noticing this came to the front of the stage and told people they could move their azzes if they wanted, they could take off their shirts, take off their clothes. Vintage Mercury humor lost on a sad bunch of Canadians and insulting to a band that was working hard to entertain them, you could see the disappointment in Roger Mays face and the overall decline in the bands energy, not from performing but from performing for a bunch of dolts who paid money to sit and stare.
Anyplace else in the world the audience cheers Queen on and jumps up standing half the time and giving them a rounding applause after every number, something the Canuks didnt. Is it bothering? Yes cause Queen makes it a point to connect to their audience who at least when Ive been, love that aspect of Queen and makes the show even more intense.
Queen Rocks you, I wonder if they ever came back that way. No wonder Freddie started the concert with "Long time no see" I guess he found it why it was a long time no see for these Canadian yokels. Things were the same I imagine since they were last there. What a bunch a Canuk Losers. God Save The Queen.
