Synopsis by Mark Deming
Combing the semi-operatic vocals of Freddie Mercury with the distinctive guitar heroics of Brian May and the powerful rhythms of Roger Taylor and John Deacon, Queen was one of the most popular and acclaimed British rock bands of the '70s and '80s, displaying a keen sense for the importance of the video medium, years before the emergence of MTV. Queen: Greatest Video Hits, Vol. 1 features 22 performances from the group, with the audio overhauled and remixed for surround stereo playback. Songs include "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Are the Champions," "Another One Bites the Dust," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," "You're My Best Friend," "Tie Your Mother Down," and more.
