Now, to mark the 40th anniversary of these legendary shows, here, finally, is Queen: Live at the Rainbow ’74 - lovingly restored, edited, mixed and digitally mastered, and including much footage never previously seen."

It says SD-Blu-Ray on the box. And beside it, 1080i, which is HD of a sort.

I'm guessing the source was 480i/575i and it was upscale during mastering to 1080i, but I can't be 100% on that.

Still you also get PCM 96/24 stereo and DTS HD 5.1 sound.

It was recorded on video, it has quite obvious and thus visible interlacing artifacts on the material I've seen. You can see what I mean at 1:55 in this video clip > youtube.com/wat…2_8

Queen were a totally different and much better band in the 70's, in the 80's they effectively sold out and were at times horribly cheesy but were at the height of their fame, due to their Pheonix from the Ashes meteroic rise after Live Aid.

They were as heavy as any metal band got in the 70's really, an example >

More heavy stuff >

They did the odd heavy track not long before Freddie died >

Stone Cold Crazy (live version taken from this Blu Ray release) is one of the best riffs and proto thrash metal >

I'd have to respectfully disagree with you there re them selling out. Yes they went mainstream but they were and still are one of the most joyful, creative and genuine musical acts in history. When I was a kid I adored their videos, from camp to grim to magical to sarcastic. So much fun.
