The tracks " Flash " and "The Hero" both written by May were also performed at these concerts but were deleted from the film.
Director Saul Swimmer recorded a commentary Dont Stop Your Love (Extended Version) - Keith Sweat - Dont Stop Your Love the original laserdisc release of the concert. In it, he describes the process by which he and the band went about organising and recording the concerts which eventually became this film.
He is complimentary of the band and spoke positively about the experience. Specifically, he talked about the lengths he went to convince the band to make the film at the end of their then-current tour. Swimmer said the deciding moment came when he took Freddie Mercury to the Smithsonian in Washington, D. Having convinced Mercury, the rest of the band followed suit. When Queen eventually acquired the rights to the film, Brian May and Roger Taylor recorded a new commentary track, We Will Rock You (Ending) - Various - The Freddie Mercury Tribute - BBC Radio 1 FM Broadcast which they discuss their feelings about the original process of making the concert film.
May describes Swimmer's behaviour in trying to get the band to agree to the project in very negative terms. He says the director effectively hounded them and that when they relented, he was not easy to work with during the actual two nights of filming. Unlike Swimmer's earlier commentary track, which paints a generous picture of the relationship between himself and the band, May and Taylor's commentary track indicates very directly that this was not the case.
In particular, May was irked by Swimmer's camera direction and raised this point every time he wasn't in shot during a guitar solo. Material from both nights has been used in the final version. In a number of instances, the footage is a mixture of camera shots from one night and audio recordings from the other night. It was finally released in this time with permission of the band. The title was also changed. Queen Rock Montreal was chosen as the Come And See Her - The Easybeats - The Definitive Series official title.
The video contains the first public performance of Under Pressure. The concert was filmed in high quality 35mm format, but the VHS release which was re-released in was highly degregated version of the original version including notable syncing issues.
