The first option should always be Snow Productions, but only if the version of Calling All Girls on his DVDs is a proper copy.

The second option is to see anyone who downloaded Queen videos when the ABC's Rage video download SMS service was active. There's a lot of videos surviving from it, but none of it is Queen.

The third option is to flood that guy who posses off-air copies of two "rare" Queen videos from ABC Rage recorded following Freddie Mercury's death. However they regularly cut part of the intros of music videos sometimes, which affects their 1980s videos but I don't know for 70s content (Fat Bottomed Girls is worth checking out, since I have a feeling the repeated footage ending was on the original 4:3 video as you can see it starting in Greatest Flix).

This was included on Greatest Video Hits 2. It's on the 2nd DVD.


This place used to be great, but now it is an absolute joke.

is it still available for purchase with the 2nd disc? i believe it's now only available as a 2 disc set that includes the 1st disc of each of the original DVD sets.

but yes, it was readily available for many years as a bonus feature. amazon.ca is my source... maybe things are different around the world.

Why must that always be the first option? Unless he has found something remarkable, the copy he has been putting out is, well....shite.

Are you sure it was actually a "Rage" broadcast?
I only ask as it's not listed.

I only ask as it doesn't appear in the August 2019 edition of their red book.

Is there more to them apart from Queen promos? Curious if the early TV edit of Barcelona from Ibiza 1987 also appears.

The "Ibiza edit" was broadcast on the Rage top 60 at the time it occupied the charts at position 53.
