Wonderful recording on DVD from the legendary Houston concert in 1977. The overall image quality is good, but not great. Some parts are even a bit better than the main rating. It has no horizontal lines in the screen, so it's not one of the worst versions around. The overall sound quality is excellent and highly enjoyable. It probably seems that Spread Your Wings is missing. I'm not really sure if they played it this night but if they did, then it is the only song that is missing. Otherwise complete concert without cuts in the songs. Freddie's voice is in very good shape, and it is said that this was one of their greatest concerts ever. Freddie greets the audience after We Will Rock You (Fast) and says ''Thank you, good evening Houston! You're ready to party tonight!? Do some rock'n'Roll with us. Okay, okay, it's really nice to be back here, in a nice sort of setting tonight. We're gonna do a lot of music for you tonight and straight away we like to do a song called Brighton Rock''.
