The 'best of' compilation that has been mentioned to be released this year will be called Absolute Greatest. The package will be a limited A4-sized book. I have no idea how many cds the book will contain. Tentative releasedate is November 9th, 2009.

me too, Peter .... me too.

Give me the classic hits compilation once more QPL, give me WATC, RGG, WWRY, IWTBF, IWIA in whatever package you want .... and include ONE rare track. One demo, one outtake, one unreleased song .... and I swear I´ll be buying this "Absolute Greatest", at least, twice.

Otherwise, no deal.

Apparently, from what I've read by the OP, the deal this time will be the book. They're probably aware that they won't be able to push another GH so they've came up with a new strategy (to push another GH).

This new compilation should be titled Jim Beach selects Queens Greatest Hits. Do we really need another compilation? If and i mean if there were  some new tracks and not remixes i might be tempted to buy it.

Has there been any update on Roger and The Cross Anthology that was talked about a while ago?
