Queen: Under Review 1973-1980 (DVD)

The latest DVD release on the band Queen, Under Review 1973-1980 , is a must have for long time fans of the group, especially those that really appreciated the band's initial works from the 70's. This presentation takes you from the early formation of Queen, and looks in-depth at each album the band recorded up to and including 1980's The Game, really focusing on the singles from each release. The individuals used on the DVD to offer up facts and opinions on the band are Kerrang journalist Malcome Dome, rock writer/editor Chris Welsh, guitarist/journalist Simon Bradley (who shows great insight into some of Brian May's legendary guitar technique), broadcaster/journalist and long time friend of Freddie Mercury, Paul Gambaccini, editor Nigel Williamson, and many others. These folks contribute plenty of insight into the DVD, and in addition there are lots of rare live footage of the band from various BBC appearances and world tours, although some might be disappointed that much of the cuts are not complete songs. It's a minor issue though, and if you appreciate the early years, footage of songs like "Keep Yourself Alive", "Killer Queen", "Stone Cold Crazy", and "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy" will be reason enough to purchase this DVD. At around 100 minutes long, it's packed with music and commentary of one of the most unique bands in rock history.
