IIRC, God Save the Queen was mixed discretely and part of The Prophet song, for the 30th anniversary.
i can't remember and i can't check right now, does the piano bit before the "nothing really matters" bit in Bo Rhap pop up in the rear on the DVD video collection?IIRC, God Save the Queen was mixed discretely and part of The Prophet song, for the 30th anniversary.
So, I guess there are 3 different versions. The question my mind was trying to formulate before was whether Scheiner's work carries over to the 30th and the video collection or not. And is the BD the 30th anniversary mix or a clone of the 2nd DVD-A?

I was just reading about ANATO yesterday morning and came across this Thread after a search. Also, read the linked Sound and Vision mag article from way back that was pretty good.So, is the 2002 Scheiner/May DVD-A mix the same as the 2005 Scheiner/May DVD-V mix?
It's a different mastering, but with one exception: "God Save The Queen" is an upmix on the old DVD-A, and it is discrete on the DVD-V. Guess they found the tapes later.1) is the 2005 DVD-V truly a remix, or is it just a different mastering of the Scheiner/May 2002 DVD-A mix?
Was "God Save the Queen's" track discrete on the BD~A? I have both the DVD~A and the BD~A .... just wondering.
Not sure actually, though I guarantee @fredblue would know. Apparently some of those Universal HFPA discs that are reissues of old 5.1 mixes DO have subtle differences compared to old DVD-A/SACD issues. I read that the fronts are phase-inverted on Beck's Sea Change and the rears were lowered on Elton's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.Was "God Save the Queen's" track discrete on the BD~A? I have both the DVD~A and the BD~A .... just wondering.
Likewise, I LOVE the DTS Entertainment's DVD~As of both ANATO and The Game. Really wish Hollywood Pictures had licensed all the Queen albums to DTS at the time, when they were on that incredible MLP DVD~A ROLL!Not sure actually, though I guarantee @fredblue would know.
It's really crazy there's so many versions of this title that really aren't all that different, personally I'm still content with the old '02 DVD-A. I've heard Scheiner's original version and there are some subtle mix differences, and "Bohemian Rhapsody" appears to be more dynamic (I posted waveforms here), but I wouldn't go lengths and spend the big bucks to track that down over May's tweaked version.
Now this may be blasphemy, but I actually think The Game is a better disc
This is well known ; as even I mentioned:How do you know so much? Fantastic.
afaik all versions of the 5.1 are currently out of print.I didn't know this existed! I don't see it for sale anywhere... any one know of any sites still selling the HFPA release?
