They will use the double A-side 7" as reference. It is the natural choice.

Guess what... They will not use both of them.
The first one is a promotional copy, the second is officially the re-release of 'Bohemian rhapsody' and there won't be re-released in the boxset.

Really? Someone has confirmed no duplicates? That's going to make box 4 rather interesting then.
And yeah, I knew they said no promos, but I can't think of a Days Of Our Lives commercial release that didn't have Bohemian Rhapsody put with it.

I can't find the topic at the moment, but I remember it was confirmed somewhere that there won't be re-releases in the boxset. Same person who confirmed that the Wembley '86 live-single of 'Rock you/Champions' will be the only non-re-release single which will be absent.

'These are the days of our lives' was commercially released on its own in the USA, only as a cassette-single however. B-side was 'Bijou'....

And I think I have a 1991 USA 7" release of 'We are the champions' with 'These are the days of our lives' as a B-side. Has no sleeve unfortunately.

Well, it is not technically a re-release of Bohemian Rhapsody, as this one is a double A-side. But if Gary Taylor confirmed this one will not be included, I believe him.

Ah, interesting. Didn't realised that pair existed on tape. However, given Bijou is the b-side to Innuendo, I can't see how that pairing works either.
Which takes me back to the promo at the start of the thread. I know it wasn't a commercial release, but it might be the only option without doubling up on something.

While we're at it, can we have the Miracle hologram cover? Looks nice :)
