"In North America only, we will be releasing EVERY Queen studio album on 180 gram vinyl LP. The first 4 catalogue titles will be Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night At The Opera and A Day At The Races. These albums have not been available on vinyl for 20+ years and we intend to include every feature from the original releases! The Cosmos Rocks album will also be released on vinyl at this time. Stay tuned for more info."

Very interesting news, despite the release being N-A only. I hope there will be some proper information about the nature of the 180gram releases telling us about possible re-mastering (or lack of it) and source of the audio.

Perhaps once released we'll hear some reviews of the releases on this forum (although I'm sure they'll be discussed on stevehoffman.tv and other similar sites)

Oh joy - More recycling.

Still no archival releases since 2004.

This is good news for me, as there are some I haven't been able to track down on vinyl. Awesome!

Yes but due to the exchange rate and shipping costs it makes it expensive.

YES!!! I'd just decided I wanted to find the vinyl albums and look at this...wow. Perfect timing :)

I think I'll have to make some money and import them over to the UK now.

How ironic you should say that, really...cos vinyl records basically ARE recycled plastic product :)
