2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Of course I knew it's not official. But to be sold through amazon, I don't know... Absolutely all videos can/could be found on youtube in way higher quality. Literally every one of them I personally grabbed from there and it's not in such poor quality as presented in this compilation. The videos are: Tokyo press-conference Dec 2005, Interview to Mega channel (Greek) of 2004, Today show interview (US) 2004, Symphonica press conference in Royal Albert Hall, May 2011, Danish interview from Herning, August 2011. Maybe I forgot one or two. It's complete waste of money and I think that such things shouldn't being on sale at amazon. Though as for packaging and delivery, amazon is best as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a BIG thing for George, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the book most of all. Hardback glossy huge beauty, with up to date (2011) interview and nice large pictures.
The Faith CD + remixes CD = very nice. The LPs are just for my collection. But the DVD is a true gem - having all Faith videos and rare (in terms of being ever released officially interviews of him) interview special of 1988, aired originally by MTV at the time. Also has interview with Jonathan Ross, true pleasure. Surely both special and JR things can be found on youtube as everything else in this world, but the real quality and official release... People it was really happy move from Sony, for a change! And the boooook - oh I already said that! lol

5.0 out of 5 stars The king's documentary, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As for a FREDDIE fan, rather than Queen fan, for me it was nearly the first and definitely most precious thing ever officially published on DVD, concerning documentaries. Because it's about Freddie's SOLO. Even unusual - so much got used to hear the group's story. And so fresh to hear what you hear in this one. Only dear and very loyal people talking, adorable footage and so many funny, interesting, cute details here and there, that you never thought of thinking of Freddie. I LOVED this one!


Days Of Our Lives [DVD] [2011] [NTSC]
Days Of Our Lives [DVD] [2011] [NTSC]

5.0 out of 5 stars Days of our lives, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very complete documentary. So many rare and unseen stuff. Touching features by Brian and Roger. This is when you lay back and just watch. I hardly care about regions and formats. I heard people had some problems with watching the ntsc format or regiion 1 - my player eats everything, so I hardly ever cared, it plays perfectly. In our century, for those who really want, I don't think it's a problem to find a way to play a DVD even if it's not for "all" regions and not "pal/secam" system. And this documentary is truly a thing that you would want to find a way of watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Symphonica first George's CD in 10 years, 8 Jun 2014

This review is from: Symphonica (Audio CD)
Stunning collection of live recordings made during the tour sessions in 2011-12. Mostly his favorite covers but also many of his own songs of the past years. George's voice at his absolute best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another gem repaired, 26 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hungarian Rhapsody (Audio CD)
I was glad that this particular concert was picked to be remastered and to have new digital life. The sound is fantastic, great job was done! The picture is not the same quality that Wembley or Montreal has but so was the original, as far as I'm concerned. To compare with what it was on TV or bootlegs before this release - it's fantastic anyway.
For any Queen/Freddie fan it's a must have without any questions (questions can be asked only by non-fans). To possible "why" the answer is simple - are there too many Queen concerts released officially? So welcome, the next repaired gem, and thanks to those who did it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The item worthy of the King, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As lover of art, Freddie would have loved it, I guess. Fantastic quality of everything - binding, paper, size, cover, picture selection... Flawless in every way. Many rare pictures inside. Everything is LARGE. The cover makes you want to touch it again and again :) Nearly the most favorite book of all I have on Queen/Freddie.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's no white light and I'm not through..., 24 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Light (Audio CD)
Probably most personal song ever written by George, who simply survived in the struggle with death. His first song since "December song" in 2009 (I don't count "True faith" since it was a cover). Most positive lyrics and catchy rhythm for ages. If it's not enough for somebody - there's the absolutely stunning live version of "Song to the siren" - it's when you understand why George Michael is called one of the most beautiful voices on this planet.
