Tomorrow I'm buying a live record by Queen, and as far as I remember, the tracklist was basically Live Killers missing several tracks, it's 1 disc only. It doesn't look like a bootleg, it looks like a real EMI release. A sign on the front cover says something like "The biggest band from Rock in Rio!", which indicates it was probably pressed in 1985 or later.

I can post a picture tomorrow after I buy it.

-------------------------------------------------

My aunt has a record (looks official too) which is basically a compilation of random hits. If I'm not mistaken, the front cover looks like the Thank God It's Christmas single (and it's called Thank God It's Christmas), and We Are The Champions is live.

I found on Google that it was released in Brazil only, in 1985, only as vinyl. No further info. :
-------------------------------------------------

Does anyone have any info on those two records? Maybe they're Brazilian-only releases?

Many thanks in advance!

Raf

It does! Thanks! :)

I bought Queen Live today. It's not by EMI, it's by Som Livre, a brazilian label. If I'm not mistaken, it's the same one that just released a Brazil-only compilation CD.

It's from 1985.

Does anyone know further info (how many were pressed, how long they were pressed for, etc)? I wonder why it was released.
