Picked up the Queen Forever one disc version when I was out Christmas shopping. Was only £3 at Fopp and skipped it at release in favour of the 2 disc

Can't say I play either very often.

It was one of those so called "themed" releases where they seemed to lose focus about a quarter the way through compiling it. Is it a ballads album or not? Is it a deeper cuts album, or not? If it isn't either of those, then what the fuck is it, exactly?

Today I bought myself a first press LP of Roger Taylor's first solo album; Fun In Space, from 1981. :) Finally :-D.

Listening to it as I write.

1A 062-64328
Printed in Holland.
EMI
1981 Raincloud productions


It don't know if there is any differences between this one and the UK version ? It says Made In Holland STEMRA on the label, and has a different number than the UK pressing, other than that, I don't know.

One thing I noticed is that they have used almost all of the vinyl for the music. Only 1cm without grooves :cool:
Not very often I see that on records.

Strange Frontier had a different running order on vinyl in the USA and Canada, so that one's worth getting if you are into things like that.
