PRNewsFoto/Hollywood Records1975 was a breakout year for Queen, and the band brought it to a close in a big way — with a special Christmas Eve concert at London’s Hammersmith Odeon that was broadcast live on British television and radio. Now, in advance of the event’s 40th anniversary, an official live album and home video documenting the frequently bootlegged show will be released in a variety of configurations November 20.

A Night at the Odeon — Hammersmith 1975 will be available as a CD, a two-LP vinyl package, a DVD, an SD (Standard Definition) Blu-ray disc, a Super Deluxe box set, and a digital download. The release features a new audio mix in stereo and 5.1 surround sound, and a high-quality video restoration.

“This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TV…the Christmas Show,” says guitarist Brian May. “The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully.”

Queen’s set included a selection of songs from its first four studio albums, including such classic tunes as “Killer Queen,” “Keep Yourself Alive” and “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which at the time was #1 on the U.K. singles chart. The band also played a medley featuring Elvis Presley‘s “Jailhouse Rock” and hits by Gene Vincent, Connie Francis and Shirley Bassey. Two encore performances, “Seven Seas of Rhye” and “See What a Fool I’ve Been,” are only included on the audio discs, since the television broadcast ended before they were performed.

The Super Deluxe version of A Night at the Odeon includes the CD, DVD, SD Blu-ray disc, a 12-inch single, a 60-page hardcover book featuring rare photos from the show, and a collection of replica concert memorabilia. The single contains “Bohemian Rhapsody” on the A side and an unreleased soundcheck recording of “Now You’re Here” on the B side. In addition to the concert footage, the DVD and SD Blu-ray offer a couple of bonus features: a 22-minute documentary featuring May and Queen drummer Roger Taylor reminiscing about the Odeon concert, and video of three songs the band played at a May 1975 show at the Budokan in Tokyo.
