Yeah, it's a poster. Some people have mentioned stickers, but mine doesn't have those, so I guess there's various "Exclusive content" items.

Meanwhile in Bulgaria...

The only way I can get the book is to import it. One of the largest bookstore chains in Bulgaria called Helikon is offering the book at £28.87 :?

It is. If you email them to complain about it they'll give you a link where you can download an mp3 of the whole thing.

An mp3...

That's very strange.
The copy I received from The Works had the complete one hour interview, it was the second edition in a purple colour slip case.

I also received a complete free replacement from Carlton last year.
That was a first edition, and again contained the complete interview, it did require quite a few calls and emails to achieve that result though as they wouldn't send me just the replacement disc for some reason :lol:

^ There are some other "Queen" titles listed, I just ordered 40 Years Of Queen (for my bruv), Queen (Jeff Hudson hardback) and The Complete Works - all for £16.77 and free delivery :)

http://www.theworks.co.uk/p/music-books/queen/9781908271136

http://www.theworks.co.uk/p/music-biographies/queen---the-complete-works/9780857685513

Got a feeling 40 Years is probably the first issue with black and silver box so it may have the half interview.
If it turns out to be the 2nd edition it should have the complete interview, I'll let you know when it arrives.

I've also got a further 20% discount code if anyone wants it.

Yeah, just to clarify, as someone else said, the second edition with the purple cover is meant to have the full "corrected" interview CD.

I've always wanted Queen books. If only right now.
Enjoy your reading!

For any UK collectors out there this might be of interest.

The 40 Years Of Queen book seems to be out in a THIRD edition.
The Crest is on the cover of the book as there is NO slip case.
There is NO CD, neither is there a slot for one, or mention of one.
ISBN 978-1-250-00568-7
Price would be £4.80 with 20% code (see below).

Queen - Jeff Hudson. A beautifully large hard back book (£4 with 20% discount code below)

Queen - The Complete Works - George Purvis. A VERY thick and largish sized info packed paperback (£5.60 with 20% discount code below)

http://theworks.refr.cc/WKQKSTW

All my items arrived in perfect condition :)

3rd edition is called "The Treasures of Queen"
ISBN: 9781847960887
Year: 2014


This latest edition includes the CD interview. Probably are corrections made to the text etc. I guess this is the definitive version to behold then. Has anyone bought this edition ?




>This is the same book as issued under the title of 40 Years of Queen. :!:


See all of the UK editions here:
http://www.ultimatequeen.co.uk/queen/ga ... -queen.htm

In addition there are German and US versions out.



AND there is also an e-Book:

- The e-Book includes the 1977 interview (1 hour 2 minutes).
