Hi guys... I have a little question: the Killer Queen at Top of the pops video from Box of flix is DIFFERENT from the one on Greatest Video Hits dvd, I have never noticied... the last "guaranteed to blow your mind" at 2.28 is with the left hand by Freddie on Box of flix and with the RIGHT hand on Greatest Video Hits dvd... and even the guitar solo is mimed differently by Brian, is it a different (but very similar) take right? Thanks! :-)
Wow. Queen Productions have NO IDEA what resourcefulness they're resting on here.
One super fan dismissive of another's alleged discovery!...snobbism at its best!
If they don't utilize the talent, obsession and dilligence of this sordid crew, they really don't deserve the regeneration they are wishing for.
Two filmed recordings were made back in December 1974 by the BBC for TOTP for this particular appearance. These were done on the same day one after the other. This was often done for films clips that did not include an audience (as this one does not) and gave the option of using varying camera shots and angles that could be edited together to form one final version. In this case both edits have been used.

Because people like to spend too much time arguing between each other on MoanZone rather than spending time (a la Gregsynth) analyzing all these different A/V sources for potential variations.
Same reason it took until about 2010 for the difference between the single and video version differences in "Who Wants To Live Forever" as well as the acknowledgement of a single mix version of "Save Me" to become proper widespread knowledge!
BTW - I noticed it when watching once and noticing the camera bumps slightly at one point in a quite clumsy way and thinking I'd never seen that before. I checked to see if they'd edited it out and noticed the camera angles all the way through are the same, as are the stage directions, but one is far superior. They fluff a few bits.
