My boss at the time bought it for her husband. Looked awesome.
IIRC, it was the listing for this in the record store catalog that first revealed the album name for MIH.

And how quaint now to think all the releases would fit like that. So many live albums and all the deluxe albums.

They possibly still might, if the 20 minute EPs were stuck on the same discs at the end of the original albums.

Those were the days.

But I think the last years, since 2011, have been some of the best years for Queen releases in the period 1995-2017. Just look what we got:

- Roadie Cube
- All studio albums remastered + deluxe versions
- Remastered Greatest Hits I and II
- Remastered Platinum Collection
- Deep Cuts 1, 2 and 3.
- Live In Budapest (CD, Blu-ray and DVD)
- The Studio Collection box set (colored vinyl)
- All studio albums released on 180g vinyl
- Days Of Our Lives documentary
- The FM tribute concert (with opening acts).
- Queen 40 years hardback book
- The Complete Illustrated Lyrics book
- Queen Forever
- Live At The Rainbow (in various formats)
- Live At The Odeon (in various formats)
- Queen On Air (BBC) (in various formats)
- News Of The World 40th Anniversary box set
- News Of The World picture disc. (Ltd to 1977).
- WWRY/WATC single vinyl

I may have forgot some, but that was most of it I believe.

There's been others...

Stormtroopers In Stillettos single pink vinyl.

Bohemian Rhapsody on 12"

Absolute Greatest double white vinyl.

NOTW Marvel comic sleeve.

I'm sure I'll think of some more.

The Singles Collection boxsets were Parlophone, so haven't been since 2011.
