I have bought a lot of Queen stuff recently:

News Of The World 40th anniversary deluxe box set.
The Miracle (the latest vinyl pressing)
Innuendo (the latest vinyl pressing)
Made In Heaven (the latest vinyl pressing)
Flash Gordon (original first pressing vinyl record)
A Night At The Opera (original first pressing vinyl record)
A Day At The Races (1st japanese pressing vinyl record)
The Works (1st japanese pressing vinyl record)

And I have also pre-ordered the new We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions single that will be released on Friday!

What can I say? I love Queen, best band ever!! :biggrin:

A few of the record shops involved are doing an online "pre-order" as of midnight.

I guess if enough people order it that way, then the poor bastards who are stood queuing outside the shops at five in the morning, may well dip out. Seems a bit of a c*nt's trick, to me.

And that's pretty much what happened at my local participating shop.

They got about fifty copies in, and allocated 40 of them to be available for online purchasing. At 07:30, a half hour before the shop doors opened for the queue outside, the online shop was showing sold out.

The comparitively recent 12" remix of Roger's "Two Sharp Pencils".

Hmm, money well spent. I quite like it.

This arrived from Amazon today:

Hungarian Rhapsody - Deluxe Edition including:
- Blu-ray
- 2-CD set with 4 extra tracks
- A Magic Year documentary
:-)

Originally filmed in 1986, this momentous concert movie has been re-mastered in high definition and superb 5.1 surround sound. An amazing performance is now available to be seen in crystal clear HD clarity.


Earlier this month I bought:

Queen 40 box set (USA) - Vol. 1, 2 and 3.
Hollywood Records 2011.
All studio albums, deluxe editions with bonus CD.
30 CDs.

Each box includes a mini Queen poster.

From a local eBay-like site. The lot for 20 Euros. I don't think the guy knew what he was selling :D

Spent absolutely ages trying to get hold of one of those, but saying that, I'm geographically disadvantaged compared to you. Got it in the end though, as I did with the studio album that followed it.

Not long ago, I bought the Queen LP collection. Unfortunately, "The Prophet's Song" on ANATO skips. So I was forced to buy another copy of that single album.

Queen - Greatest Hits..... not the usual 1981 version but the 1992 USA Hollywood Records version with the red cover and odd tracklisting which includes 'Body Language'.... seriously? Would rather it of had 'Spread Your Wings' on it.

I know they released 'Classic Queen' in the states (which i also have in my collection) but this GH album is a little odd and is like a 'budget' version of the UK one.

Still - a nice thing to have and not bad at £4 new and sealed off ebay.

If it’s a ‘Best Of’ then definitely Spread Your Wings.....however if it’s ‘Greatest Hits’ then the criteria is set....did Body Language get higher in the US charts than SYW? That’ll be your answer. (Not that the same logic worked with the UK hits albums!)
