Studio buns in the oven

Discuss current and upcoming Queen projects.

Will the '' studio buns in the oven'' actually materialise?!

No way. Brian talking bollocks again.
Yes, but it'll be totally dull in reality - a new version of Love Of My Life sung by Kerry Ellis.
Yes, but it will be some Paul Rodgers related shite.
No votes
Yes, but it will just be something with Taylor Hawkins playing drums on a new version of IILWMC.
Yes, but it will just be a re-recording of It's A Hard Life with Tom Chaplin from Keane singing.
Yes, it will be a rare outtake - Hangman or Let Me In (YHA) - something like that. Whoopee!!!
Don't give a rat's arse - I'm past caring.

A year ago I compiled a 3-CD collection of the UK A-side singles, with the constraints that it be limited to the official Queen-only singles as found in the 4 Singles Collection boxsets (so no Vanguard Flash remix or Miami Project AOBTD etc). It works really nicely with exactly 17 tracks per CD, though maybe a little clinical compared to the official Greatest Hits sequenced track listing.

01. Keep Yourself Alive
02. Seven Seas Of Rhye
03. Killer Queen
04. Flick Of The Wrist (Single Version)
05. Now I'm Here
06. Bohemian Rhapsody
07. You're My Best Friend
08. Somebody To Love
09. Tie Your Mother Down (Single Version)
10. Good-Old Fashioned Lover Boy
11. We Are The Champions
12. Spread Your Wings
13. Bicycle Race
14. Fat Bottomed Girls (Single Version)
15. Don't Stop Me Now
16. Love Of My Life (Live Killers Version)
17. Crazy Little Thing Called Love

CD 2 (1980-1986):

01: Save Me
02. Play The Game
03. Another One Bites The Dust
04. Flash (Single Mix)
05. Under Pressure
06. Body Language
07. Las Palabras De Amor (The Words Of Love)
08. Back Chat (Single Remix)
09. Radio Ga Ga
10. I Want To Break Free (Single Remix)
11. It's A Hard Life
12. Hammer To Fall (Single Edit)
13. Thank God It's Christmas
14. One Vision (Single Edit)
15. A Kind Of Magic
16. Friends Will Be Friends
17. Who Wants To Live Forever (Single Edit)

CD 3 (1989-1999):

01. I Want It All (Single Version)
02. Breakthru
03. The Invisible Man
04. Scandal
05. The Miracle
06. Innuendo
07. I'm Going Slightly Mad
08. Headlong
09. The Show Must Go On
10. These Are The Days Of Our Lives
11. Heaven For Everyone (Single Version)
12. A Winter's Tale
13. Too Much Love Will Kill You
14. Let Me Live
15. You Don't Fool Me
16. No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young)
17. Under Pressure (Rah Mix - Radio Edit)

Oh, some version of that COULD be released but a full collection with b-sides should be done in a gorgeous huge book like the Freddie Mercury "Solo Collection" from the year 2000.

I remember when ‘the platinum collection’ came out... it was at a time when other heritage artists (also signed to EMI) were doing a similar thing with the same title... Bowie did one where he used to two previously released compilations and created a third disc (exclusive to the collection) covering his 80s period. Roxy Music & Bryan Ferry did one where it was a brand new track selection covering their career in chronological order. Genesis did the same although theirs worked backwards.

With Queen I always thought they took the easier option and just bundled the three GH collections together, stuck them in a box and job done. A little bit of thought and it could of been a completely different ‘new’ product with a chronological order track list. It probably would still of sold by the shed load... at least by doing it this way it would of got rid of that stupid no singles outside the top 30 to be included rule that stuck to in 1981.

Not going to happen.

The benchmark for things like that, was The Beatles Anthology series.

If and when Queen do it, then I think Queen will do a similar styled set of releases, across three or maybe four double CD volumes, covering the time period of four or five studio albums at a time.
