75 pages for a product we basically know pretty much nothing about yet, congratulations all! :lol:

I wait for the official announcement, look what we actually get and then decide if it's something to get excited about. ;)

Aw man, if I could tell my twenty year younger self that the Anthologies aren't actually going to get released, you'd see the look of something who is very disappointed.

We kind of found out about them via Greg Brooks. In an interview, I think it was for Record Collector magazine circa 2000, he said he was working on compiling a Queen retrospective set, when he was asked to go through Freddie's solo work, and compile a boxset from that.

I can't think much else was ever said about it officially, but it DID give the impression that "another bus would be along soon".

I remember seeing an interview with Brian dated in 2000 referring to the Anthologies (I think someone posted it on the old forum before it was deleted) and of course the Freddie boxset book itself did refer to the 'upcoming' Queen anthology. There was a demo, I think of what become All God's People (Africa by Night?) that was considered for Barcelona but didn't include it on the Freddie boxset as it would be on the Queen boxset. Something like that. I haven't actually looked at that book in a long time, I'm now doubting if any of what I'm saying is true.

There's also the fact the liner note for The Solo Collection said one of Freddie's demos ("Man made Paradise"?) was left out because it was so similar to Queen's demo, which was due to be included on the imminent anthologies.

I know the release history doesn't show it, but a lot was going on around then, particularly in the newspapers.
