Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

I'd also prefer a Freddie or Roger style 'complete' boxset because I can sort of imagine BttL, the one that did really well and had hit singles, getting the deluxe treatment on its own but I wouldn't be surprised if AW (and anything else) didn't get revisited later.

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

That sounds vaguely familiar...

Somewhere between original BttF and the full Barcelona treatment would be the sweet spot for me.

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

Again drawn to his comment there 'what it needs to be in the 21st century' that went along with 'more than a remaster' in Record Collector. Wonder if he's re-recorded parts of some songs or something? Or maybe a remixing of the tracks as much as a remaster? Would definitely be very interested in 'fr...

Re: Roger's next solo album

Yeah, and even Fun on Earth was kind of a compilation of the last few years and re-recordings of recent compositions that had been used elsewhere. I'd be more than happy for a similar thing with this new album. By all means put Gangsters and Isolation and Journey's End on there but some alternative ...

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

The actual quote is quite vague but says it's stuff that never got on the album and alternative versions. Some of the b-sides from singles could definitely match that description. I'm hopeful he may have meant stuff that never got on the album or released at all.

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

Brian had a few comments about this in the new Record Collector. Sounds like it might just be Back to the Light being worked on. Says they are 'little bit more than' remastering it and they've got an whole new CD of extras. Interestingly he mentions about the difficulties of getting a vinyl produced...

Roger's next solo album

My copy of the new Queen Record Collector magazine arrived today and in there there's a Q&A where Brian and Roger get asked if they are working on any solo material. Roger mentions that's he's got an album of material which he hopes to release in the next few months (not sure when the interview was ...

Re: 50th Anniversary

I've seen those style of t-shirts before, and indeed even a Queen version. So I guess there's a demand for them

Re: Greatest Hits

Well, couple reasons. You're right that music doesn't sell as much but GH is still not selling very well more than all but 5 albums after 40 years which does continually surprise me. Although it's not even that as I noticed GH is always further down the physical chart so that suggests it's having gr...
