The Houston 1977 concert was recorded & filmed for Queen's own archive, but so far (2024) no officially release of this concert has seen daylight so far.
But, a raw video of the full concert was made out to be shown on the officially Queen fan club conventions in late 80ies & early 90ies. Leaks from this video has been out on DVD's and a handful of bootlegs (LP's & cd's). Recording on this LP comes from this video.
This Houston 1977 concert has never been radio or television broadcasted.
But, 'My Melancholy Blues' live track, are on the b-side of the officially 1989 single 'The Miracle'. and also on the officially VHS video 'Rare Live' from 1989 together with 'We Will Rock You' (fast version) which was the opener on the 'News Of The World' tour.

The Buenos Aires concert was filmed and recorded by Argentina television. As far as I know, it was broadcasted some days later on television & radio. Later re-broadcastings over the years has been done, if information I have read is correct.

All in all, the sound on this 3lp's can not be compered with  pro-multi tracks recording which is normal on officially released live albums. But it's ok to be on bootlegs. 
Pre-ordered price on this 3LP is UK £ 39.99 (Ad on web in January & February 2024).

Information from Internet page.

This is the ultimate anthology of Queen broadcasting across the airwaves during the halcyon years with Freddie Mercury as the charismatic frontman of this iconic band.

Gathered together in this amazing limited collectorís edition triple album set featuring classic tracks including, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions, Another One Bites The Dust, Now I'm Here and many more.

Set Includes:

Disc 1 - News Of The World In Concert (Limited Edition on Clear Vinyl)

This release features the concert broadcast from Houston on the 11th December 1977, which captures the band hard at work promoting the album News Of The World. Although Europe, South America and Japan all quickly fell in love with Queen, North America was a much tougher nut to crack and this is a perfect record of Queen working hard to achieve that elusive goal.

Track Listing:

Disc 2 - The Game In Concert - Part 1 (Limited Edition on Clear Vinyl)

This record features the highlights from the live broadcast of a concert in Buenos Aires on 28th February 1981when Queen were busy promoting the album The Game. South America was always much more receptive to Queen. Between the Houston show in 1977 and Argentina in 1981, a string of hit singles and their involvement with the Flash Gordon movie, the Queen stage show had transformed into something which was now almost unrecognisable from that which had gone before.


Disc 3The Game In Concert - Part 2 (Limited Edition on Clear Vinyl)

The music on these records was originally produced in the days when vinyl was king.

Vinyl records produce an analog sound that reverberates and creates that famous warm sound you can't find in any other medium. The music and vocals on vinyl records are much closer to the way artists sound live.

Clear vinyl is softer and molds easier during the pressing process. Vinyl is a naturally clear substance. Black vinyl records are created by adding a charcoal /graphite colorant which creates a harder surface and makes it easier to see tracks but can lead to static build up in the cartridge . As a result, the best clarity of sound quality is to be found in using clear vinyl.

NB. Audio recordings from live TV and radio transmissions will always embody the audio limitations of the original sources . Modern digital remastering techniques improve sound quality immeasurably . However, the original broadcast performances have often been recorded and mixed by TV or radio technicians rather than music specialists. Nonetheless clear vinyl will give the very best reproduction given the limitations of the original broadcast sources.
