I've done some mixes of Bohemian Rhapsody using the 24-tracks uploaded by poopchute. If you want another mix, tell me what you want and I try to do it and I upload it.

Somewhat decent attempt, but not enough time put into it...
Too many mistakes, drums sound weak, and you didn't cut out bits that shouldn't be there nor did you pan the instruments right (snare in the right channel?? Gimme a break)

Mr. Stuart, I think your wish will come true, in due time ;)

I like tracks which have been recreated to reproduce 'what we think' the original demos may have sounded like. In the Beatles community they call these 'Out-fakes'. For me the 'ideal' - 'Bo Rhap' out-fake would be solo Freddie at the piano only. No guitar. No drums. So I have drafted two mixes below.

The first mix: I would like to hear is the full piano version only. (Including the opera and rock sections).

The second mix: would be - mix one from above - but with added Freddie solo vocals only. (No chorals whenever possible).
However, to make this second stage even more difficult, I would like this to be made up from 'unused versions' from the master - so that we have a completely 'new' vocal.

Now I know that purists may argue that 'Bo Rhap' was not created in this fashion - but hey how cool would that be - a Freddie solo 'Bo Rhap' which sounded like a simple early demo version?

The only problem is that I have the idea - but I do not know how to execute this.
Mr. Inu - are you ready to take up the challenge?

As I said in the Toni Mau threads:

...as a 'consumer' - I have to ask myself: If Queen Productions DID release an anthology CD, and, as part of this set, an 'Official Bohemain Rhapsody remix' track was included - what would I expect from such a track?
...I would expect a 'hybrid type remix' as found on both the Beatles/ Freddie Mercury anthology sets.

Commercially, both the 'Beatles Anthologies' and the 'Freddie Mercury Box' sets faced very similar problems. However, their professional solution in overcoming this difficulty was to focus on the DIFFERENCES - and not the similarities between the final releases.
Simply: If the officially released, loved and tested 'Bohemain Rhapsody' is the 'North pole' - what I am looking for in an 'Alternative version' is a 'South pole' eqivilent.

My ideal mix (if anyone was up for it) would be a 'hybrid mix' which featured as many differences from the original as possible - but still using the original template.
For example: Keep the same stereo map as the original, but feature lead vocals taken from more than one source. Same with guitar, bass, drums etc.
(There is no point in using the guitar version from track 24 at the end of the rock section - as this appears on the official release).
I would keep the countdown intro, and the 'Deacon crashing about' outro - also Track 15's 'Belch' and Freddie's 'Fuck it' - if they could be featured inconspicuiously. In sum - if it features in the 'official release' - KEEP IT OUT!

I guess what I am really saying is that a diametrically opposed mix - would allow me as a fan to re-listen to a 'different' Bo Rhap - but still within the framework of familuarity.
As I said above, this has already been tried and tested on both the Beatles, and Freddie boxes, and is the basis of most Hollywood sequals. The real down side is that this would take a lot of talent - and a sh*tload of time!

Now, I know this may be too professional an expectation for a casual fan remix forum, but, there is no excuse for not aiming this high.

I've done my own full mix of Bohemian Rhapsody using parts of both lead vocals and at times both together.

let me know what you think.....

A mix I'd like to hear is a pretty-much acapella mix of the song as it sounds on the album with all the proper stereo panning. The only instrumentation I'd include are the instrumental pieces to fill non-singing gaps, ie. the piano between the verses, the guitar solo that leads into the opera section and the solo of the rock section. I'd love to try it myself; but work is keeping me from finding the time right now. But if anyone else is up for trying it, I'd love to hear it.

I'm betting no since none of the lead vocals in the original were multitracked. I'm working on a mix right now like Kevin Described

Some lead vocals were double-tracked:
The rock part, the last "anyway the wind blows" and "I sometimes wish I've never been born at all".
