Queen: Greatest Video Hits

Greatest Video Hits
(Eagle Rock)

Listen, “Queen: Greatest Video Hits” DVD is good – that really should go without saying, but even the fact that this is a solid two-disc collection can’t help the fact that there is a very good chance you’ve seen some or all of this material.

The first disc features early Queen Work up until the “Flash Gordon” soundtrack in 1980, with the second disc covering their later material – predictably, up until frontman Freddie Mercury’s illness. “Queen: Greatest Video Hits” does the right thing in not showing anything off of the band penultimate release with Mercury, The release culminates with the vibrant “One Vision,” the opening track off of the band 1986 long player A Kind of Magic, a video that showcases one of the last visions if you will of Mercury in his true prime.

This collection features many of the timeless Queen cuts you surely have come to know and love, tracks like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Killer Queen,” “Radio Ga Ga,” and “I Want to Break Free.,” Not even to mention the litany of other classics like “We Will Rock You,” “We Are the Champions,” and “Under Pressure.”

In total, there are 32 videos and while there’s little to no bonus material to speak of here, you’re not buying “Queen: Greatest Video Hits” for bonus content, you’re buying this for that great set of videos.
