Looks like a nice release of the
Kampuchea concert on December 26th. 1979.
The concert was filmed and pro-recorded
in full, but so far not released officially in any form. But, there
are a one hour television program 'Queen Special', which contains
around an hour live from this concert. Also live videos shown at
Queen Convention's over the years, has been copied and found the way
out on the bootleg market.
The 2 DVD contains films from those
This 4 day's Benefit Concert's For Unicef
took place at Hammersmith Odeon in London UK.
Queen was the only band who played a full
set on the first day. On the next 3 day's, other band's did their
was released, but Queen only appear with 'Now I'm Here'. You can
read more of this 4 day's 'Kampuchea' concert's on Wikipedia.
I really hope one day to get a proper
Queen Production release of this concert on audio and DVD/ Blu-ray.
I have heard rumors it's a lot of work,
to clear out rights for a officially release, since someone owns (paid
for) the audio recordings, other owns and paid for the film and the
filming.... It's sometimes complicated when it comes to a releasing
of a concert like this, which was hold to raise money for the
tragedy in Kampuchea.
I'm not even sure which deal Queen did,
when they did the gig. Was they paid or did they played for free?
Any deal for the audio & film right's?
Anyway, I'm sure it's possible to release
it officially. It's just a question of money to get it released.
Note: I'm not sure I have right about
this 'rights', It's just things I've read and heard over the years.
