RSD Black Friday - We Are The Champions/We Will Rock You (12

Postby tote_alkor » Tue Oct 17, 2017 4:54 pm

It will be released a new 12'' containing We Are The Champions/We Will Rock You for RSD this autumn.

http://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/9877

Celebrating the 40th anniversary of News of the World, this limited edition 12" single features two of Queen's most iconic tracks, "We Are The Champions," and "We Will Rock You." Created exclusively for RSD Black Friday 2017, this 180-gram vinyl release features and exclusive cover and tracks remastered by Bob Ludwig in 2011.

"We Are The Champions"/"We Will Rock You"

Maybe we can expect a coloured vinyl? :-)

This is going to be far more sought after than the Kissing Me Song, isn't it?

I can't be bothered with the anxiety of trying to get a copy at an actual record store on the day so need to rely on eBay really. But got a feeling this could end up an expensive one very quickly. Maybe QOL will sell them like they did with the Fun on Earth vinyl...

Just gone mine from eBay.

It is Hollywood records - is that the USA version or were they all Hollywood records?

Just answered my own question! It is the USA version - Uk was Virgin.

Ebay seller should have pointed this out imo!

Both mine are Virgin-EMI. Made in Germany, I think.

Out of curiosity, is the USA one 33, or 45 rpm. The Virgin-EMI one is definitely a 45.

There were four record shops in Newcastle who were participating in RSD Black Friday. Two of them had WATC/WWRY and sadly none had Roger Taylor.
After spending £30 plus on the NOTW picture disc, I thought £19 was a bit steep for a 12" black vinyl of two songs I've got dozens of times already. No loss with that but gutted I couldn't get Journeys End.
