Another one...

As a commercially released 7", what is the only Queen or Queen related/Solo released 7" single, to feature absolutely nothing on the B side. No groove, no fancy etching, fuck all.

In the words of Connor MacLeod, I'm pretty sure there can be only one, anyway.

Sequentially, going through the catalogue of Queen "solo albums", what is the first track to audibly feature more than one member of Queen on it?

Off the top of my head I'll say Star Fleet as I know Rog did backing vocals. I don't believe there were any uncredited works on "testify" or fun in space...

I'd have said that was a good answer.

...Followed by some assistance by Freddie on Roger's Killing Time.

Here's a good one.

Who was the first female's voice to feature on a Queen studio track.

I'm not even 100% certain myself, but I think I know.

Let's see if you lot can come up with an earlier one than I have. :cry:

Good call, but there's at least one that's earlier than that one!

And the one I'm thinking of, has a name...

NO idea if I'm correct but I'll throw out that I think there is an uncredited children's choir on Teo Toriatte which had SOME female singers. Of course I can't prove that :P

The one I was thinking of was "I always wanted to be a groupie!" from the end of 'Let Me Entertain You' on the 'Jazz' album.

The lady in question with the Germanic accent, was Roy Thomas Baker's wife Barbara.

So, JLP gets that one.

God, it's hard trying to think of things that haven't featured here before.

Not sure if it's ever popped up before, but there's an officially released EXTENDED version of 'Thank God It's Christmas', admittedly it's only extended by about four drum beats at the beginning, but still, where would I find it?

Official product ONLY.
