Many great things could be included in this release.... Apart from just getting the album on cd and vinyl.

If they put in a tour documentary - and this has already been confirmed now - then they HAVE TO include the Houston'77 concert. At least!

Even better would be to include all of the following (we'll all be very happy if they include "some" of it):
- a complete NOTW US tour recording (LA 22-12-77 is my personal holy grail...)
- the actual film of the WATCH shoot CONCERT (if it exists of course)
- rehearsal/soundcheck footage

Oh, and I wouldn't say no to studio outtakes, demo's and alternative versions of song!
Nor "Sleeping on the sidewalk" live, sung by FM :-)

WAIT! You all said consistently that you did NOT want this to happen! As a matter of fact you all were REALLY pissed off about it! What gives?!

P.S.: By the way it does not seem like there is any mention of all of this music being in 5.1...

This box set seems like the ideal opportunity to include the full Houston 77 show on DVD and CD since Greg Brooks seemingly said at one point it wouldn't get a stand alone release due to some unexplained quality issues

Indeed, and if Houston is not included... Well, then it's another missed opportunity. It would be very very sad.

It's not very difficult to compile such a box set: include the Original album on vinyl and cd. Include 2 cd's with rarities, 2 cd's with a complete audio concert, a dvd with Houston, a Blu-ray with the documentary and possibly a few extra's. And there you have it: about 8 discs (the vinyl included) and you have a product that leaves everyone in awe!

Queen as rulers of the world once again. Sadly, this doesn't seem to be the way they prefer to handle such products. The Odeon box was sadly all about including as little (in terms of rare audio and video) as possible and charge as much money as possible. I truly regret that...

That's assuming there are that many rarities, which is a big assumption.

Well, we'll be very very happy if we get 1 complete disc with rarities... With Queen you have to ask 2 for getting a half ;-)

I'd be really really positively suprised if they make this a comprehensive box.

My main source of optimism here is unless they are going to do a really good set...what's the point? It was re-released as a special edition (of some description) in 2011. Re-released on vinyl two years ago. Also, the 40th anniversaries of Queen, Queen 2, Sheer Heart Attack, Night at the Opera and Day at the Races were ignored. What would be the point of re-releasing NotW again in 2017 unless they are going to go all out rather than give us the album plus the 'rare' Live Magic versions of Rock You and Champions as bonus tracks?

I always talk myself into thinking it's going to be more than it is...

BT I've done the same, I've convinced myself that the previous albums have not had enough material to warrant a decent deluxe edition, so logically I've come to the conclusion that there must be a wealth of material to at least make NOTW a worthy release. Outtakes from the NOTW sessions, complete Houston show, WATC video shoot and a sensational reworking of the Bob Harris documentary.

I've also convinced myself that they will include the full Houston concert on audio and video within the box meaning we will get a stand alone release of both Earls Court shows from 77. :-D

"Coming off the back of their current hugely successful Queen + Adam Lambert North American tour which celebrates the 40th anniversary of the News Of The World album, Queen will mark the record's anniversary later this year with the release of an elaborate collectible NOTW luxury box set housing vinyl, CD and DVD formats. It will offer a wealth of hitherto unheard and rare versions of the original album tracks, a 60-page book of mainly previously unseen photos and a brand new documentary, directed by Emmy Award-winning director Rhys Thomas, charting how NOTW finally broke Queen in North America, and featuring previously unreleased performance and backstage footage from the band's ground-breaking 1977 North America tour which up to now has remained in the vaults."

This just might be more than good :onfire:
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~
