    - See What A Fool I've Been - Inspired by a song Brian saw on a television very briefly back in 1968/9 called That's How I Feel, by Brownie McGhee & Sonny Terry. Brian actually forgot the song, but remember parts of the tune. You can certainly hear the inspiration from That's How I Feel.

    - A Human Body - So far, this is the only officially released Queen song to not appear on a CD release.

    - Blurred Vision - This is merely an extended version of drum solo from One Vision, which ends with the last verse of the actual One Vision song.

    - A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling - This is merely an instrumental version of Don't Lose Your Head, although it is slightly different.

    - Forever - This was released on the A Kind Of Magic CD album, but did not appear on the vinyl album and so is included as a non-album B-Side. This applies to Hang On In There appearing on The Miracle CD version.

    - My Life Has Been Saved - This version contains a different backing track to the Made In Heaven version, although the vocals are exactly the same, except the end of the B-Side version contains extra vocals.

    - Mad The Swine - This was recorded in 1972/3 and was indended for the Queen I album. The song was destined to go between Great King Rat and My Fairy King, with the drum outro merging into the start of Mad The Swine. The first word "I've" has actually been cut off of the song for the official release, as you could hear the last part of the original drum outro over it. Hence, the lyrics are "Been here before" when they were supposed to be "I've been here before". The original versions of Great King Rat and Mad The Swine haven't surfaced in the public domain as of yet - they're still in the Queen archives.

    - Queen Talks - This is a short collection of extracts from various interviews.

    - It's A Beautiful Day (Single Version) - This is an official hybrid edit of It's A Beautiful Day (Track 1) on Made In Heaven and It's A Beautiful Day (Reprise) (Track 11).

    - Rock In Rio Blues - This is just an improvisation track, similar to the song entitled 'Impromptu' which appears on the Live At Wembley CD/DVD.
