Live Killers remaster in 2017 ?

Postby TheHero » Tue Mar 14, 2017 11:37 pm

Are they going to put out a new Live Killers album? Because the old one is out of stock ..

I would love to see an official deluxe 2LP set on red / green vinyl, like the Japanese version.

All the live albums were slated for re-mastered releases when the 2011 deluxe sets came out, but were pulled (as usual).

Pretty sure a reissue of Live Killers has been brought up on here every year for the last five years.

I don't know, but I'd have thought 2019 would be a good excuse. :-)

It never fails to astound me that a band known for their live brilliance has never really given us a proper live collection. A live box set would be fucking fantastic.

"The trouble is you record and release your live album because everyone says you should, and end up selling it to the converted anyway" Brian May 1979

Maybe that reasoning is enough to stop anything like a live box set.

You could well be right.

I think a big box set release - including all those rare recordings and the odd snippets of filmed performances that are simply not long enough to justify a stand-alone release - would be welcome by many fans...

...although what we will probably get is Queen Yahtzee.

I've always thought it strange that two of the showpiece songs on that tour, we're not included on the Live Killers album. Somebody To Love was without doubt one of the best performed songs on the entire setlist. To this day, it's the only Queen song to ever hit the top ten as a live version in the UK. Admittedly "that" version features George Michael, but it's still one of the band's best live songs.

Btw. The other one missed off was Fat Bottomed Girls, just in case you were curious.

I stopped listening to Live Killers ever since I first heard that the live albums will be remastered eventually. Especially the Live Killers era was supposed to be reworked quite a bit. Not just sound-wise, but also content-wise. (I think Greg Brooks mentioned that?) However, I really don't know if I can wait until 2019... I should give the old Live Killers a spin again...
