Re: Favorite Roger Taylor Album

I have just added my vote — for Fun in Space. But, having left it a couple of weeks to allow for new release bias, I am thinking that Outsider could be my new favourite. I think it is a terrific album. I love the overall feel — mellow, a little wistful, perhaps. Roger has described it as 'autumnal',...

Re: Roger's next solo album

The CD just arrived from Amazon (ordered at 9.30 this morning). I took off the cellophane to find ... no 16-page booklet. Am I missing something ... other than the booklet?!

Brian in 1978 on Guy Garvey: From the Vaults

There's about 30 seconds' footage of Brian from 1978 on this week's episode of Guy Garvey: From the Vaults (series 2 episode 4). It's from a Yorkshire Television kids' pop quiz show called Pop Quest. It featured a guest slot called Feed Back. Brian's on there demonstrating the delay effect on his gu...

Re: Before Live Aid was organised, Queen were planning to play Wembley Stadium

I was astonished when I heard Brian say in that Paula Yates interview that they had been planning to play Wembley. What exactly does he mean by 'planning', I wonder? Is there any evidence that a Wembley gig was definitely in the pipeline or is this just Brian, in the emotion of the moment, perhaps e...

Re: Record Collector Queen Special

I really don't know. These days, I think Greg writes most of them. Over the years he's got so close to what he writes, errors will just hide in plain sight. I'd hate to think how many times I've suggested to above, to just get someone who's not up to their eyeballs in laying out product, to just sc...

Re: Record Collector Queen Special

Still, with Queen, however perfect the music is, then the text is never normally error free. Exhibit A: the mini essay originally on the green and red inner sleeves of the Live Killers album. Just awful, shoddy work. As an impressionable kid in the late-70s I was much influenced by a story I had in...

Re: Queen The Greatest

This week is just lame. I agree. In fact, for me, the last two episodes have both been particularly awful. The Finland press conference story (episode 4) is mildly interesting, perhaps meriting 60 seconds or so at a push. Instead, dressed up as '1974 Early Tours', it uses tour footage from 1975 and...

Re: Queen The Greatest

Like, I suspect, other people on here, I am not holding out any hopes for this series. I accept that I am not in the target market. Even so, I was still a bit irritated that they used such predictable footage in episode 1. What I liked about the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack album is that they includ...

Re: Jazz - Queen's Most Underrated Album?

Actually, probably the biggest revelation is that my 12-inch Another One Bites the Dust is worth £150. What a pity I gave my record collection away. Which 12" of AOBTD was that? I've got German ones, French and American ones at 33 rpm, Colombian ones on yellow vinyl, all-sorts. EMI 2 C 05252878 Z, ...
