Sloppy, but cool to see so many great musicians just having fun.

Ok. No Brian May CDs, no LPs and no streaming on Spotify.. It has been like this for at least a year now.

With all the Queen fans around the World, it must be a big loss of income not to have any of the solo albums, or live videos available ?

For how long will they be unavailable?
Younger generations must think Brian has never released a solo album. It looks like it, the way things are now.

Just kind of feel in my gut that this isn't going to happen. Hope I'm wrong though. I probably thought the same about the Roger Taylor box and that did happen eventually.

Reminds you how the CD isn't dead though.Who'd want to live in a future where half your favourite songs could be taken from you without any by your leave?

Amazon (U.S) has all kinds of Brian May Band stuff. Starting at the top, there is a vinyl Live At Brixton for !24.99 U.s.
another at 36.99 U.S.
and a cd for #1.69/ Back To The Light.

Another World on cd for 4.56 and on vinyl for 89.99
And more.....

I'm surprised Roger's happened at all. ;)

Cozy had such an incredible career. He played with just about anyone who was anyone in the world of hard rock during his lifetime.

Think it was on the game a while before the BTTL album came out.

Cyborg was on the follow up game, absolutely ages before Brian officially released it on Another World.

I wonder if Brian will release his solo albums in physical formats and downloads again. They are out of print, and have been so for many years now. :shock:

Live At Brixton Academy never got a DVD release.
Only VHS. Can you imagine that? :shock:

It was a very fine concert! Professional camera handling, awesome lighting rig etc. Better than most Queen concerts.

I for one, would LOVE to see this concert remastered and polished ultra sharp on digital format. And just think, I got a feeling there are bucketloads of potensial BONUS material available in the archives. They went for a big tour, there were lots of TV shows and interviews.

And then there was Another World tour. Lots of concerts.

What are they waiting for?

If the videos on his YouTube channel are anything to go by, the audio for that was remastered a couple of years back. Seems strange they'd go to that effort and then not release it.

I daresay it's "in the works", but no doubt the film's been taking priority recently.

Yes, I was also thinking about the two YouTube videos.
It seems like the project with uploading videos was suddenly stopped. The same happened to the Guyton Guitars Red Special documentary two years ago:

Here is the advert from 2016.
Nothing happened.

It is just sad that the tracks aren't even available for streaming.

Both Roger and Freddie have their solo material available.
My guess is that Brian isn't confident that his solo work is good enough, and he pulls all the stops. I hope I'm wrong.

The Brixton Academy CD and LPs are so rare now.

A recent check on eBay:

Prize for used CDs range from 50-120 USD.
Vinyl costs up to 185 GBP.

Wow. Had no idea that disc had become so expensive.

I get the feeling his solo stuff is on a list of stuff to do but just as it gets near the top of the list, something else comes along and the solo stuff is put on the back burner again. We're pretty sure it was remastered a few years back and it doesn't seem quite right that none of his stuff is available on back catalogue and/or streaming sites so there almost certainty must have been tentative plans to re-release at least some of it in the past few years
