Mate, I ain't knocking you - I am probably sold now too. On. The. Strength. Of. One. Bloody. Song.

Nah, I'm still not buying it...but this track is surely one of the loveliest things to come out of Queen Towers for a long time.

Why is it called "hybrid version" in video title ?

Because it's a mix between the Freddie vocal version and the Brian vocal version.

Yeah I knew that but is this on the box set? I guess not so it's strange they would release it this way. Hope it's released as an actual single. It's beyond gorgeous

phpBB [video]



The ultimate official version, with and without backing vocals, both Freddie and Brian.
Well done!!

The video itself is also brilliant! Good idea with the cat inside the robot! I especially liked the part with the guitar solo, and the cat staring out from the robot's eyes.. "Her ways are always with me.. "

Wouldn't be the last time Freddie sang about a cat, would it? :-)

It goes a long way to explaining the whys and wherefores of that leading passage of lyrics written in italics on the inner record sleeve forty years ago. Fuck me, that's John Lennon's whole lifespan! Shit!

And that people, was Freddie only going at about half throttle. What a fucking talent the bloke was!

So there are two versions? The raw rough mix and the hybrid..? The video with the animation has Brian in the middle 8 and splitting the verse after. The raw version is all Freddie but very rough in the middle and no backing vocals on the chorus. Will both versions be included..? I love the all freddie one but the sound is better on the hybrid.

I had to check my NOTW inner record sleeve, and you are absolutely right! Thanks for letting me know! Incredible!!

I am sure most of you have noticed in this version the many places where Freddie's vocals goes up on a high note just for half a second...and down again.. but do you understand how difficult that pitch change is ?
I advise you to try it yourself.

It is technically very difficult to do without missing the pitch. Simply amazing skills, out of this world! :shock:

There are plenty of stuff to look forward to.. one thing is the documentary, but also this : :D


Mined deep from long-vaulted studio multi-track tapes, this extraordinary parallel album brings to light never-before-heard alternative versions of each of the album’s 11 tracks. Every lead vocal is different, as are most of the lead guitar parts and a great many other instrumental details.

Roger Taylor’s Sheer Heart Attack can be heard with its original long-lost guitar intro and uncut ending. Taylor’s other song, Fight From The Inside, is more remarkable in that we hear his demo vocal worked on in his home studio in preparation for the next sessions, ‘homework’ that all of the band members would regularly carry out. As a point of note, Taylor plays all instruments on these two recordings, except for some lead guitar.



Looking especially forward to Spread Your Wings, It's Late, My Melancholy Blues (Raw versions) :-D.
