— The albums will be released on 18 November according to amazon.com.
— Both albums will be release in a gatefold sleeve. 2 Vinyl.
— Greatest Hits 1 will have a new tracklisting featuring new songs. Songs that are likely to be included are 'Tie Your Mother Down', 'Spread Your Wings', 'Keep Yourself Alive' and possibly 'Love Of My Life'.
— It's unlikely that Greatest Hits 2 will have a new tracklisting like Hits 1 but if so it could feature 'Days Of Our Lives', 'Heaven For Everyone', 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' and 'Las Palabras De Amor'.
— Press release either Thursday or Friday. If not then next week!

I know but they are not reissuing Greatest Hits 3 are they? And I don't think they ever will. As there is go some good Queen songs one there it's a shame to miss some of them out.

I can see their point about reordering the albums as they've missed some good songs in between like 'Tie Your Mother Down', 'Spread Your Wings', 'Scandal', 'Back Chat' and 'Body Language'. If they re-order them all to the 17track/18track for each of them then it will certainly be Greatest Hits.

Is it going to be on black vinyl? Maybe a limited coloured version too?

According to the UniversalMusic website:

http://www.universalmusic.it/dbcommon/f ... /10255.pdf

it seems that Greatest Hits does not show changes in the tracklist and in the cover.

Unless the "new cover" means reverting back to the old one that EMI used originally, as it was redesigned slightly for the 2011 Remaster.

So I was told... Black vinyl.

I think coloured vinyl was talked about, but the decision was made to go with black.

Greatest Hits on vinyl. Seriously, is this the best they can do? I got rid of all my vinyl about 30 years ago and I sure as hell have no desire to go back to the awful stuff. :shock:
