Oh, OK.

I've just received information that Esprit weren't lying. The RSD allocation was indeed 500, and the QOL allocation was 750, thus making a run total of 1250. All pressed by UMG's designated vinyl label Back on Black.

How's THAT for clarification?

But maybe that's because I had already found out it was "about" 750 copies, and passed that on to everybody, but THAT'S by the by.


LOL. I don't obsessively watch this forum, and I didn't see any post from you stating 750 but whatever. You can use as many quotatio marks and "shock" faces as you want. The fact it was available for ages made it obvious there were plenty of copies up for sale.
Re 500 copies available for RSD. I was quoted 5000 by ERA, who are one of the partners behind RSD in the UK. Not much clarification, as I don't know your source. If it really was only 500, it's even more embarrasing that there are loads of copies out there still unsold and copies going for less than what shops were charging on the day.

My source on this one, was/is a VERY reliable one.

Good enough that he got an absolutely free signed one, direct from Mr Taylor himself.

As regards it being embarrassing, well, I don't think you get too much more embarrassing that the sales figures for TCR, especially considering it has the word Queen on the front cover.

As I said somewhere else, I wouldn't rate this album as being in Roger's top 3, and I don't know many who would. Even so, I'd still reckon that as Queen fans around the world get hold of it, and less come to be in circulation, this could progressively increase in value.

Thanks Kes, that makes sense.

About 20 in total of this have sold on UK ebay, normally for about £35, and there are still about another 20 on ebay. Actually most of those are at about £40-£50 BuyItNow, which is what the price will end up at I reckon in say a years time, for a total pressing of 1250 for a Roger LP.

There are no surprises here at all.
Hot Space is actually only my 6th favourite Queen album.
(But is a very underrated album in my opinion).

There are a few still hanging about from RSD, not many I must add, and we have the option to take them back and put in the QOL store if we wish. But yes, the numbers quoted are correct.

RSD2017

Nothing from the boys but Tolga Kashif's Queen Symphony is getting a release on vinyl. The RSD website says this is an 'official sanctioned Queen branded product', whatever that means.
