Was the "Made In Heaven" vinyl released on one or two discs?    I take it that it did not have the 22 minute "jam of Freddie going to heaven secret track" that's REALLY long and unmarked on it, eh?

It has one disc, but Track 13 isn't on it. It just fades out after " Yeah" .

You forgot to mention though, the 'beginning' of Track 13 continues on into the inner groove where the record ends, and just loops from there (assuming your turntable doesn't have the mechanism automatically set to return the tonearm at record's end)

And I'm curious to see how Hollywood Records will handle the MIH vinyl when it comes time next year, whether it'll be 1LP or 2LP. Would kind of like it to be 2LP, personally.

You forgot to mention that there are two different versions.
version 1: rare issue pressed on black vinyl (1000 copies only)
version 2: common issue pressed on ivory vinyl

version 3: limited UK black vinyl issue

It exists, but is actually RARER than the ivory vinyl issue! I've seen it on eBay only once or twice, and unfortunately for me, couldn't afford it in the end :-(

You also forgot to mention that the version 1 is a South African(?) pressing. Actually, I might be wrong about South Africa, could be from another African country, but I'm certain it's SA.

Am I wrong?

Edit: I suppose, with HR re-releasing catalogue titles as well as bringing out some that were never issued on vinyl in the States, MIH's release on vinyl next year will make for version 4 :-)

Your description of "version 3" is identical to version 1...which you assume is because the OP meant an obscure foreign pressing (sorry, SA!).

However, none of the pressing questions are relevant unless they have different content, as that's what the thread's about.

Or are you saying that the black vinyl pressings have different equivalents to Track 13?

I wasn't saying that.

And I'm more than fairly certain the UK black vinyl edition was not limited to strictly 1000 copies.

If anything, that South African pressing also had a different sleeve (a generic company sleeve with no actual MIH artwork). Does that qualify as being 'different'? :-P

Edit: The OP was also asking if Track 13 wasn't on the vinyl, and we said yes. He wasn't asking if the several vinyl editions had different audio content. I don't know where you got that from.

I hope that both "Made In Heaven" AND "Innuendo" are released  as two vinyl sets when Hollywood Records re-releases them here in the U.S. of A.

I think "Innuendo" was mentioned in the solication for the 2nd round of HR vinyl releases for Spring 2009. No mention AFAIK if it's a 1 or 2 LP release.
