PBS broadcast this unique film of Queen's concert remastered in stereo.
If you want a flawless perfornance this is the one. It also has songs
from Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis. Ballads on acoustic guitar.

Here is a quote from WIKI.

Queen Rock Montreal is a live album (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_album) by English (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England) band Queen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_%28band%29). It was released in 2007 as a double CD (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD) / triple vinyl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gramophone_record) on October 28 in Australia, October 29 in Europe, and October 30 in the US.
It was recorded in Montreal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal), Quebec (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec), Canada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada) at the Montreal Forum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal_Forum) on November 24 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_24) and November 25 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/November_25), 1981 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1981), to the date ten years before lead singer Freddie Mercury (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Mercury) died.
This marks the first official release of the film soundtrack to the concert film We Will Rock You (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_Will_Rock_You_%28video%29) on an audio-only format.
Unlike the original video release of We Will Rock You, which has been re-released as Queen Rock Montreal, the album and CD features the full show fully remixed.
During Love of My Life (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_of_My_Life), when the audience is supposed to sing along, Freddie even stopped singing and famously remarked "You don't know it, hem..." as the band was used to audiences in Europe and South America singing.
