Also just checked ebay and there are people cashing in on there already, makes me a bit angry when true fans get exploited on there.

Unfortunately, this happens, and you can't do much to stop it.

On RSD, you'll see people buying one of just about everything. Nobody likes EVERYTHING.

Why are you disappointed?

It was only rumour, and people blowing it out of proportion, that might have suggested it was anything else.

They haven't hyped it up. In fact, they hasn't been ANY announcement about it, apart from in the news section of Queenonline, yesterday morning.

I'm no expert but I doubt other than B sides, there wasn't much in the way of extras. This was recorded in Munich and around the time Freddie had discovered the night life there, so was a little unreliable at arriving at the studio on time.
Obviously stand to be corrected.
An album of non album b sides could be an idea for sometime though, human body was off these sessions I believe.

I agree. It's a rather strange idea to release T-shirts and vinyl for the 40th anniversary of the album.

But they hadn't promised to release ANYTHING.

It's only some guy going to his local record shop, and posting it up here, that's given people the idea that it MIGHT be something bigger.

The only things anyone's officially announced might be coming out this year, is Jim Beach announcing the Miracle boxset, at the Freddie Birthday Party in Montreux, and Roger saying there might be a QAL live thing coming out.

To some people, like myself, a picture disc release IS a big thing. To most, it isn't, hence the lack of publicity.

I am more interesting that Jim said than Roger.
