It's time that I try to start my first Queenzone torrent, so be patient, please :) Queen : Emperors of Japan (2 CDs + 1 DVD)
This DVD captures first visit of Queen in Japan and the beginning of "Queenmania" in this country.
The live footage captures 3 songs of their last Japan concert, taking place in Budokan, Tokyo May 1st. Video

The almost complete documentary is circulating among fans since the 70's, but common copies come from extremely high generation tapes. I have managed to find a pretty good looking copy, with a lot of details and almost correct colors. This was my main source. In the 80's the master tape was re-edited for use in the "Magic Years" documentary, but the most interesting part - the live footage - was ommitted almost completely. This cut was used for all other documentaries, up to "Killer Queen", which uses many parts of "Now I'm Here" which were never seen anywhere only in the old documentary.
What have I done - I have taken the 3 sources, cleaned them up with various video filters, deinterlaced them and corrected their speed so now all 3 sources run at the same speed. Since the audio on the original documentary was barely listenable, I have replaced it completely. The documentary parts, which were using the studio tracks are now synchronized with the audio coming from the Japan remastered albums. The live parts come now from an audience recording which was released on the bootleg "Young Nobles Of Rock".
The video cleanup was done in AviSynth, the synching and cutting in Womble MPEG Video Wizard, and the authoring in DVDLabPro.
Big thanks to YourValentine for making 2 of the sources available for me and for her OK to share it here ;)
