This might be a
collection of the tracks which is from the television broadcast, and
the raw video made out to be shown at fan club conventions (in late
80ies and early 90ies).
Some tracks are from a audience recorded
One more 2LP of this legendary Queen concert, at the Hammersmith
Odeon in London on the boxing day in 1979.
missing some tracks, so it isn't the complete concert. Might be some
error in the tracks which is listed as well. I'll be back when I know
The concert was
professional filmed and recorded, but only one track "Now I'm Here"
have been officially released on the 2LP 'Concert for the people of
Kampuchea' which was released in 1980.
A one hour TV 'Queen Special'
with live tracks from the concert, has been broadcasted on
television stations over the years. They have might use this live
tracks on this album.
A raw video has also been made out to be
shown on Fan club conventions. The sound on some tracks from this
video, has probably been used on this 2lp.
I can see that all
tracks her, are those which are on the 'Queen Special' television
program and rest on the raw convention video.
I don't have
this album yet, not sure I will buy it. Queen production hasn't
officially released this great concert yet.
Might have to do
with rights to use the master tapes, which seams to be own by
Atlantic record. I'm not sure, but problems with rights are common

filming and audio recordings.
Queen might have to buy the film
and audio tapes, and get rights to released it. I'm not sure on

Anyway, It's looks
nice, but... The sale price for this 2LP as new on internet
are from UK £ 19,58 up to UK £ 30,- and more I guess later on.

The Concerts for
the People of Kampuchea was a series of live shows featuring top rock acts
of the day, such as; Queen, The Clash, The Pretenders, The Who, Elvis
Costello, Wings, and many more artists that took place at the Hammersmith
Odeon in London during December 1979 to raise money for the victims of
Queen performed their set on boxing day ‘79, and
as may be expected, it remains the most electric and dynamic performance
of the entire series of gigs. Playing a 75-minute set that featured a
mammoth 18 live cuts - plus the band’s customary ‘God Save The Queen’
finale - the show was unsurpassed and was recorded for live FM Radio
