Hi, I remember reading about this in another thread but can't find it. I got the box set as a birthday present and I was curious if all the songs had actually been remastered? Some of them sound really well mixed... few examples.... killer queen, 39, YMBF, GOFLB. Some sound worse though... WATC, White Queen, DSMN. (I'm sure some will disagree... suppose it's different for each person).

Can anyone shed light or point me to a previous topic? (Search facility not working for me at the moment). Ta

You mean The Singles Boxset?

take a look here:

and read carefully the last post by Kes, where you´ll learn about the differences between the 1988 UK 3" CD singles, the 1991 Japanese 3" CD singles and the 2008 Singles Boxset Vol 1

cheers

I can't hear any improvements - if anything, they all sound muddier. Which is probably combination of not using the best masters as per usual and not having professionals working on it (assuming they used their usual rag tag bunch of in-house amateurs).
