Lover Of Life... The Untold Story:
This award-winning documentary is the untold story of Freddie Mercury, from his birth in Zanzibar, to his death in London. There were those who shared an extremely close relationship with Freddie: his mother Jer Bulsara, and sister Kashmira; Mary Austin; Diana Moseley, who designed his public and private wardrobe; Peter Freestone, his personal assistant; and Jim Hutton, his companion at the time of his death. Outside of this close circle there were the friends, photographers, record producers, and record bosses; and from Zanzibar and St Peter's school in Panjghani, India, the relatives, school friends, and his first child sweetheart, Gita R Goshi. Together here talking about the times they shared with him, they weave the rich tapestry that was the life of Freddie Mercury, 'Lover of Life.'
Singer Of Songs... The Solo Videos:
Specially remixed for 5.1 DTS surround sound audio, this compilation of Freddie's videos offers the opportunity to revisit such classic moments in Freddie's solo career as the majesty of Freddie and Montserrat Caballe and fountains and fireworks in 'Barcelona'; Freddie and 300 Amazonian women in 'I Was Born To Love You'; men in women's clothing in 'Living On My Own'; and Freddie recreating some of his personal favourite video characters in 'The Great Pretender.' The extended version of 'The Great Pretender' video is Freddie at his most playful: theatricals, colourful language - and frocks to match. The DVD closes with the 1993 remix of 'Living On My Own', which two years after his death, gave him a posthumous No. 1 throughout Europe. Originally banned by his record company, the video is made up of footage from Freddie's 1985 Munich party that remains the most talked about and vividly recalled of all of Freddie's birthday bashes. Across all of Freddie's videos, this perhaps more than any other most captures the uncontainable spirit of Freddie Mercury, 'Singer of Songs'.
