Label: Masterworks (7) MWSP2001 CD1/DVD1

Recorded: CD & DVD, Live at Hammersmith Odeon, London, England  December 26th. 1979. 
DVD has also Live At Budokan, Tokyo, Japan  April 25th. 1979.
Sound: I will guess more than less, excellent soundboard recording. But not as clear as a officially live recordings.
Comments:  From the great concert at Hammersmith Odeon in London on December 26th. 1979.
This was a part of the 'Concert for the people of Kampuchea', which included 3 days of concerts by various artist's. Queen performed the first day.
The hole concert was professional filmed and recorded, but an official release has so far been missed.

I don't have this bootleg, so I'm not sure which sources has been used. A 'raw' convention video has been out for a while on DVD's, and a near hour television broadcast from 1980 'Queen Special', has also been bootlegged on DVD. Must be those which has been used I guess. I don't know of other sources. All in all, this looks like a ok bootleg. At least until we get a proper official release.
The Tokyo concert comes from a Japanese television broadcast.

A officially 2LP was released in March 1981, but Queen only appear with one song "Now I'm Here".
Roots: I will guess the the recordings mentioned above.
Time:  DVD 121 minute.
