Firstly would like to say what a fantastic site you all have here.
Hopefully Im in the right forum.
Just wanted to know the truth about my Highlander Selection CDV I bought back in the 80s.Does anyone know how many were actually made?
I paid £20 at the time,no idea of its worth now (tho not planning on selling lol)
I used to buy loads of Queen stuff back then but have lost touch with whats out there since the Great Mr Mercury sadly departed from us.Finding this site has been a breath of fresh air.

No idea, but it can't have been many - CDV was a very niche format.

As an aside, it would be interesting to see what EMI/QPL's figures were for production quantities for many items - they must know, even if it's well buried info.

I think it's quite an expensive item. I was always intrigued about the song versions contained in the audio CD portion of the disc.

£20 is a bargain! Well done!
Some more info: http://eil.com/shop/moreinfo.asp?catalogid=15828
Catalogue price from 2007: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/kennethdrury/queenuk-pg.htm

By the way, according to queenpicturehall.com only 50 of those where made.
I quote: " The Highlander Selection CD-v 1986 UK $400
info: unique promo, 50 only"

Dunno if someone these days will still pay £400,- / $400,- for it, but it's a great and rare item nevertheless!

I dont know if the video is the standard A kind of magic video cos never had a cdv to play it on but the audio tracks play on a normal cd player and Im pretty sure they're just the standard album versions.Iv been told it was a very limited amount made but it varies between 30 and 500 so have never known the true number
