I ran across this at www.eli.com, it looks like it may be the cover to the upcoming box set. Also, the price is the best I've seen so far.

Here is the link:

i dont think its going to look like that. EIL.com may have just thrown something together as a placeholder until they have the real thing.

I hope...

I like 'Even Seas Of Rhye'.
That's it.

I'd be 100% sure this is the final artwork.

of course it looks like shit
it s queen productions, what do you expect
their mision is obviously to test the limits of how bad they can do and present the things that have anything to do with the band
what a bunch of plonkers


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

Forget the artwork - why would anyone buy this? Why have two songs per disc? What is the point?

Don't buy it then!
The less people who buy this - the better off we will all be in the long-run.

Spend your money how you will - but what would happen if most people were to boycot this product - surely that would send some sort of signal back to Queen HQ?

As for the casual fan, the birthday, the Christmas, the Father's Day or Mother's day present, surely Mr. Joe Public is going to find a 'Greatest Hits' package far more attractive?

So the future is in our own hands in a sense. Hit the PLC in the pocket is what I say.

Hi !

There is something else a little less cheaper on amazon.com, see it here !
http://www.amazon.com/Singles-Box-Limited-Queen/dp/B001A4MNJ6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1221999084&sr=1-3

Or if the link doesn't work, search for "Queen" and sort by "release date", and you'll find it at the second or third place.

Anyone having information about that one ? Seems different than what announced on eil.com.

Regards,

Olivier,
Belgium.


wanna trade ?

QUEEN releases used to have great covers, like QUEEN II, ANATO, NOTW or INNUENDO. Now I look at Return of the Champions, Fire at the Bowl, Rock Montreal and the upcoming Singles Box Set and I wonder : why did they lose their taste in cover art ? A lot of bootlegs have better covers than these official releases.
