Editor's note: This DTS came out some 3 years ago. Now it's being re-re-released with a remastered cd. I won't buy it again...but maybe someone will buy it for the first time. Better yet....put out "Jazz" in multi-fun. Oh well what the hell, Christmas is coming right? Give it to someone......
Queen's 1975 album "A Night at the Opera" will arrive in a 30th anniversary collector's edition Nov. 22 via Hollywood Records. The original CD, best known for "Bohemian Rhapsody," features remastered audio. An accompanying DVD features a DTS 5.1 Surround Sound mix plus track-by-track commentary from Queen's original four members, including archival interviews with the late Freddie Mercury.
Beyond restored versions of the clips for "Rhapsody" and "You're My Best Friend," videos have been created for the other album tracks out of vintage live performance clips and rare photographs.
Queen's reunion tour with Paul Rodgers continues Saturday (Oct. 22) in Los Angeles and will be followed by six Japanese shows later this month and into November.
