Hey folks,

I was just looking at getting a nice Queen guitar strap in the Qonline shop and saw that they have Kerry Ellis' cd there, too. So, has anyone heard it and confirm if it's any good? I'm curious, but it's a bit expensive for just 3 tracks.

Would be nice to hear from folk on this one.

Adam.

EDIT: Just seen it's not released yet, but hey, maybe someone has seen it in the theatre shops in London. Anyway, seems like a July 28 release.

... got my copy early last week;
quite liked it;
appreciated how Dr. B. only got wild in places not all over the place;
heard echoes (in the music only) of the wonderful studio version of "The Call";
best track "I'm not that girl";
did not have time to check if NOBY is a different mix than the previously available official release;
HTH ...

I'm not buying the album. I don't buy things just because a Queen member is on the album or single.

HAW! HAW!

You can find the songs on Youtube...

If you're a Wicked fan, and know the songs already, it's really cool to hear. Kerry Ellis can wail....

That said, I don't think I'd spend the $$, especially when you can get it for free.

Pretty damned impressive stuff! Just heard it all on youtube. Btw, naughty about the Isohunt thing...also, 1 slow seeder, ahem!

Anyway, I think it's a pretty amazing cd. True, £8.99 is an album price, not a 3-track cd one. If it was £5, I'd snap it up straight away! Brian's guitar work is excellent on Defying Gravity. I think he makes a great song even better with those harmony guitar bits. Makes me long to hear more of Dr Bri's excellent orcestrations. :)

Adam.

Hi gnomo,

Does the cd have a catalogue number? If so, could you post it here please? Thanks!

KECD001 - where KE should stand for "Kerry Ellis" I suppose.

I hope the QPR album will include something as bombastic as the opening to Defying Gravity.

I hope the QPR album will have more of her tits on the packaging than this one.

I agree. :D


I didn't like No One But You. I really hate it how she smears out 1 measure worth of melody over 2 measures. It's really annoying.
