A shame that Love Kills won't come with the b side, ok, it's not a Freddie track, but i like a lot, why not put the extended version of Love Kills??

The ONLY reason to buy this is this tracks that will be FIRST time on CD:

The Fallen Priest (single edit) 2:55
Living On My Own (single edit) 3:05
Made In Heaven (single remix) 4:08
The Golden Boy (single edit) 5:14
She Blows Hot & Cold 3:39 - it seems, they bothered to restore studio chat before the song for the first time since original single.

I will go to 2CD.

On the plus side, it looks like quite a good collection and, assuming LOLSOS is out of print, is a great way to get all this stuff.

On the downside, is that it? I was hoping for something greater for his 70th (although the bar was set pretty damned high with the Solo Collection). And, £109 for 13 singles??? I was expecting around £50 when I saw what was in it.

Not what I was hoping for but it has it's audience- vinyl collectors and the casual fan who wants and hasn't gotten by now a Freddie "Best Of".

Meh. Looks like a nice package but definitely exciting to only a small niche.

Price tag's steep enough on this one, I might just wait a bit and see what the other online retailers are doing with it.

Comparing it to the studio collection boxset, this really should be retailing nearer £70 than £110.

Whoa! Sweet! This is awesomeness! I don't usually collect singles like this but I will make an exception as QUEEN are my third favorite recording artiste in the universey! Rawk! If for some reason "Lover Of Life Singer Of Songs: The Very Best Of Freddie Mercury Solo" is out of print...then it needs to be put back into print...it is a classic. Same for the original version of the 2000 compilation ten c.d. two d.v.d box set "The Solo Collection" which is without a doubt out of print and VERY hard to get one's hands on...

Mmmmm.... underwhelmed. Ok for vinyl collectors. Saw the Tease the other day on Facebook, was hoping for something a bit more sensational. This is just lazy as someone else said.

Only the UK singles will be on the box, and in fact, this track it's on the HCIGO 12'' single.

I prefer a singles collection on CD, with edits, b sides and also extended mixes.

Yet more terrible cover art, too. Who on earth is doing this stuff?

Oh, there is no question that "The Album Collection" vinyl box set with color discs should have been MORE expensive! It should have sold for thirty U.S. dollars an l.p. instead of the twenty U.S. dollars per l.p. that it went/goes for! The two disc l.p.s could have gone for maybe a little more perhaps? KISS sold each of their l.p.s (live, studio, and compilations) on regular vinyl for thirty U.S. dollars each in their fuck all glorious vinyl box set entitled "KISSteria"!
