The Treasures of Queen book.

Post by Life is Real »

Hi. Just heads up to anyone who hasn't bought this book yet. It's a bargain £7.49 on Amazon right now. Came across while browsing so thought it worth a share.

Was looking through the original issue of this the other day - it is quite tempting to get another to rip open and scan....

Does this version come with or without the various trinkets and stuff that were in the original 40 Years of Queen release? I never did anything about sorting the missing half of the interview CD from the original, and could be tempted to double-dip if you get the full disc in this one.

I don't know, but I strongly doubt that there are 2 CDs in this one. Didn't they just throw out a digital download for the second half?

Read some recent reviews and it seems this is a less lavish version of the original.

A few weeks ago I sold my 2011 edition to someone in South America for an insane price. It had basically sat on my shelf virtually untouched since day one. :shock:

First edition was black, right? Second edition was purple.

If so, I think the second edition had the full interview.

Was that interview available anywhere for the ones who bought the first edition? I have no idea if I have it or not :lol:

I also seem to remember that there was a missing text on the NOTW insert, and the whole book was replaced?
I have no recollection if I have two copies of this book, but at least I have the two versions of Roger's The Lot. :roll:

I believe the first edition only had the first half of the interview, but if you wrote in, they'd send you a download link to the second half. Didn't do it myself, so I don't know if it worked or not.
