The guy who has uploaded the sample or SSOR have:

2 versions of Seven Seas Of Rhye in full color.
1 version of Seven Seas Of Rhye in B/W (possibly the one on Days Of Our Lives, but in better quality)

And Now I'm Here from 1975.


Indeed. I haven´t checked yet, but i believe that he has better looking versions than Queen had in their archives. This guy is star. Because of him we now have great Queen stuff from TOTP.

One thing that i don´t like in this process is the secrecy. QP make it look like us - the fans - are working against Queen. When we are not!
Obviously they read this site to find these kind of gems. They don´t interact with fans, they just follow the links, and voilá!
Then, not a word from them to let us know if they got it, what´s it look like, or just a thank you to the fans who brought this to their attention.

Next time someone find these kind of gems and thinks about purchasing it, the advice is - buy first, post links and information later.
I kid you not, if they were more "open" with their fans they could have so much more things flying to their archives willingly, it´s unbelievable. But they still make business the old way.

By the way, do Queen own the rights to their TOTP appearances?

You mean Queen didn´t mail you these videos? :-) LOL

When i say we, i mean "We" as in the Queen family. We are a big and happy sharing family. If Queen have it, that means we have it! :-)

Kidding aside, i said we because i believe it will be released in the future - maybe on their complete greatest hits project. I remember they wet their panties when they´ve found the "bad" version of this, so i know they must be on the moon with this finding. I just wish they could be more open with the fans, who in the end are responsable for bringing this gems to their attention.

But i´m pissed i won´t get to see this now. There was a user who downloaded the HQ version of the SSOR from the site, maybe he could uploaded it here for us to see it? That would be fantastic!

Actually the problem is that the guy got the VHS tapes of a huge amount of TOTP shows. He wanted to sell those tapes to a couple of collectors (I was a member of 2 different groups of people trying to get them from him), but when the transaction should take place, he suddenly disappeared. He stopped replying to emails, removed his youtube videos and even removed his website. I thought he's in jail or something or the BBC lawyers contacted him and he got scared, that's why I'm asking if he contacted anybody else. A few months ago a third attempt was done to get the tapes from him (by AGAIN a DIFFERENT group of people which included me), again with no success.

So as far as I know "we" have now just the short SSOR samples which were downloaded by various people from his old youtube channel and re-uploaded. I'm not sure if the footage is in "public hands" or if it's slowly deteriorating in let's say BBC archives. I hope the footage is in "good hands" and the "good hands" will release it someday.

When I've seen your post I was hoping you're a part of a FOURTH group of people, which was successful :-)

No, "we" didn´t get that far :-)
That´s one of the problems of bringing this public before the negotiations.
I don´t think he´s in jail, unless those tapes were stolen wich i don´t think to be the case. Maybe he was successful selling it to someone.

Can you post the YT you have so "we" can appreciate it?

Amazing to see that the whereabouts of this footage has been "known" for almost 2 years, yet nothing has come of it so far because there's a collector somewhere hiding it - even though there are lots of people willing to pay for it...

Good spot. John Deacon and Roger Taylor on the right of the pic, with possibly Brian May just behind them. No sign of Fred.

Were those programmes broadcast live? If so, then the second SSOR cannot be from the 14th of March as the band were playing a gig in Cheltenham that evening. If they were recorded in advance, then nevermind n_n


John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Rog didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Wales is not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 vox.

I think you can see half of Freddie's face behind John's.

Is the black group to the right Manchester 'one hit wonder' band Sweet Sensation?
If so then I know one of the members quite well as i used to work with him. I 'll ask him if he remembers the day and if he met Queen (i'm sure years ago he told me he had).
Who know maybe they were given an old copy of the show? (doubt it!)
