Serious discussion about the band known as QUEEN.

I'm going slightly mad (mad mix) discussion

Postby SelfMadeMan » Wed Feb 21, 2018 11:48 pm

Hello fellow Queen fans! I have been lurking here for a long time but I don't think I have posted anything until now. I am curious what info there is out there about this mix. Other than "found on a tape". Is this simply just an earlier mix of the song, or was it something newly created for the reissue, as I know Queen like to say things are old but have actually been edited and re recorded. I hope one of you will be able to give me some info, thanks!

My guess would be that the Mad Mix, like some of the other bonus tracks we’ve had, was specially created for the deluxe release.

That's what I assumed, they do say that they just found it though. Kinda annoying if they're lying like that.

It was on the Innuendo deluxe edition in 2011. :)

I'm so, so glad I read this thread and got a reminder that I was a few albums short of a collection. :P The early version of A Kind of Magic is simply amazing. :)
