Dont know if it has been asked but does anyone know why Rogers biggest early hit single Future Management doesn't feature on his solo singles albums anywhere...A serious oversight

If you're on about it not being on the "Singles" discs in the box set, maybe it's because the Single version is identical to the version on Fun In Space.

I think all the tracks on the "Singles" CDs differ to the album versions in some way.

Otherwise, Future Management IS on his "Best" collection, the Single that's noticeably missing from that one is "Pressure On".

I.should add that I think Future Management IS arguably Roger's best solo single. I can play it now, and it still sounds timeless and fresh to me.

I agree, its an excellent song...Also, the replication argument is an odd one as identical versions always crop up on original albums and hits albums. Queen having done this a number of times. Greatest Hits and Hits 2, barring, i think W W T L F, Fb Girls and Break Free (maybe more) are all identical duplication.
Indeed you could argue it would have been remastered anyway, making it a perfectly valid inclusion......Anyway thanks for your answer Kes
