ROCK IN RIO - LIVE 

1CD & 1DVD

Label: Revolver Records South Africa REVCD 464   Barcode: 6009604977187
Country: South Africa (Can't confirm 100% correct)
Released: 2011
Recorded: Rio De Janeiro, Brazil  January 1985.
Sound: Excellent pro-recording. (Personally, I hope a better balanced mix will be released someday)
Comments:  Another bootleg, or more than less a pirate release of the officially VHS video release from 1985.
This officially video, is also released on laser disc in Japan, and now also as a part of a officially 4DVD box in USA.
I'm not so sure of detail about this cd & dvd release. Might be from South Africa, but I can't confirm this.
Just about the half of the show has been released of this 'Rock In Rio' video. Queen played 2 dates on this festival back in January 85. It was on the 11th & 18th January. Sometimes listed as 12th & 19th, but as far as I know, it's the timing when Queen enter the stage after 24:00 on the evening on 11th & 12th.So therfor you can find different dates listed.
The sound on the officially released VHS and laser disc, could have been better balanced.

There has now been released so much pirate & bootleg release of this concert, so I hope Queen production will make a proper full gig released production in not to far future.
A instrumental jam tune called 'Rock In Rio Blues' (not on the video) is available as a B-side on the single release 'A Winters Tale' from the 1995 release "Made In Haven" album. This live track has a much better sound mix.
Roots: "Rock In Rio" officially VHS video, but might comes from a laser disc sound as well.
