Alive in Budapest!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen: Hungarian Rhapsody - Live In Budapest [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I was fortunate enough to own the original of this film on VHS way back when it came out in I think Feb or Mar 1987, it came on the back of a very successful European tour and preceded by 2 weeks the final concert that Queen as a complete band undertook, which was Knebworth on Aug 9th 1986, I wasn't aware at that time that a Hungarian film unit (partly funded by their then state) actually filmed the footage, it's only now you realise just how far Queen's appeal reached, that it can actually influence the decision making of the parliament in Budapest to allow what would be deemed as musically beyond acceptable levels in politburos of other neighbouring countries of the former eastern bloc, thus this film is a triumph of art over bureaucracy and still holds true today.
The re-mastering is also a triumph capturing Queen in their only venture into Eastern Europe, who knows how much further they could have gone if they had for instance played Prague open air.
10 out of 10.
