Hope you're willing to go quite high on that one, then! :-)

...(And he was!) Well done there, Spud!

I know!

They usually do, mate. That one and the Malouf mix of Hammer To Fall, though the I Can't Live With You one normally goes for more than the HTF.

Queen Made in heaven original first pressing black vinyl for 80 euro, it was the only from 1st pressings that I didn't have. I have bought the cream in`95. Also the father of very good friend was working in Greek Minos - Emi, I didn't know that Greece pressed all Queen albums back then. So he gave me for gift all their albums Greek test pressings.

Quite frequently, the Greek pressings were cut from mother stampers from the same cutting masters that the UK ones were made from, but at the same time using generic brown and red EMI labels

When they pressed Innuendo in the UK it had white labels like the CDs.

European copies, pressed in Holland, I think, had the traditional black Parlophone labels.

Nice - I have a Greek original pressing of the debut album which my Mum picked up in a market in Brighton many years ago!

That is very good. in mid 80s Live Magic was released in Greece with the titles of the song printed with Greek letters. The albums with bigger sales in Greece are ANATO, NOTW, Live Killers, The Game, The Miracle, Innendo, GH II and MIH.
