Product Description

Product Description

Coverage of the iconic rock band Queen's 1986 concert in Budapest, Hungary. The gig was notable for being played behind the Iron Curtain, with the crowd of 80,000 making it one of the largest music events held in Eastern Europe. With the band riding high on the wave of goodwill following their performance at Live Aid a year earlier, the gig arguably captures them at their peak. The songs performed include: 'Under Pressure', 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'I Want to Break Free' and 'We Will Rock You'.

It is unbelievable that this was filmed back in 1986 & by a so called eastern block "inferior" team this to compare with the technology advanced film people of the free west.
Queen are at their peak & their performance of one of the best I have seen recorded, The cinematography is at the best,the positioning of the cameras the editing with top notch direction here is just outstanding...I have a large collection of DVD / BD Rock concerts , I must say this is one of the best rock shows ever to be recorded & put out on DVD /BD.

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.

After having bought first the VHS and then a bootleg copy I was absolutely delighted to see this finally being given the BLU/RAY treatment, it never disappointed. This concert is arguably so much better and superior than Wembley in every department. The only disappointment is that it's still not the full concert as it's believed that the rest were unrecoverable.

Originally made in order to fit into a 90 minute video which is why the concert has so many cuts in it. Notable absences include only one verse being played on Tie Your Movie down and the omission of Another Bites The Dust aswell as Love Of My Life being cut short too. Thankfully the full concert has been preserved on it's audio so the major bonus for me was the 2 CD's which accompany the feature DVD. My review of the concert goes as follows.

The concert starts as it means to go on as Queen begin by belting out One Vision and from that moment you even get the feeling today that the band have won your attention within just a few seconds. This concert has many highlights, not to mention the fact that the sound and picture throughout is stunning. Freddie's voice is also at it's absolute peek and unlike Wembley he reaches all of the notes including the high one in Bohemian Rhapsody.

If you've never bought or seen a Queen concert then this is the one for you. This is Queen's last ever tour and it's clear for all to see that the late great Freddie bowed out in style.

This wouldn't be my top Queen concert of all time, but I have to credit them for the mastering and audio quality. There is plenty of fine detail for a high iso concert and the audio track is excellent.

If you are a Queen fan, for £16 it offers good value for money.

This is a nice transfer of one of the best Queen performances I've seen. Vibrant colours, clariity and great sound. The band were certainly captured at their peak of musicianship. You won't be disappointed.

What can I say other than OUT-STAND-ING. Watching Freddie onstage is just an honour even on a DVD. It's part of the magic tour and would say this was filmed at their peak. If you like the live a Wembley DVD and want something similar then this is definitely up there with that performance.

I really enjoyed watching Queen's Hungarian Rhapsody at Edinburgh's Vue Cinema it demonstrates that Queen's music and live performances can embrace old and new generation no matter what age.

Queen's documentary `A Magic Year' shows the best of Queen through their `Show Stealing' performance at Live Aid on 13th of July 1985 to Freddie Mercury and Queen final live performance at Stevenage, Knebworth Park on 9th of August 1986 along with extracts from concerts from Stockholm (Sweden), Slane Castle, (Ireland), St James Park (Newcastle), the two legendary nights at Wembley Stadium, Maine Road, (Manchester), and the main concert itself Nepstadion, Budapest. The document is a showcase of interviews from John Deacon, Brian May, Freddie Mercury and Roger Taylor filmed in the spring of 1986 to promote their album `A Kind of Magic' and fore coming `Magic Tour'. This shows them as a tight nit group of people who enjoy touring rather than being stuck in a recording studio as show when they where recording `One Vision', the song that was a tribute to their `Live Aid' performance.

I would like to award this fabulous and glorious movie `5' stars and I hope it is also released on DVD format similar to Queen's two legendary Wembley Stadium concerts. As I mentioned in Queen Live at Wembley Stadium 25th Anniversary Edition review, I hope that release, re-construct, and digital re-mastered both Queen's 8th of March 1981 Argentina Concert and also their 18th January 1985 'Rock 'n' Rio' Concert in complete format for the Queen fans young and old.
