Really enjoyed (enjoying?) the whole QPR thing, but keep coming across interesting bits and pieces that I'd forgotten about coz they're not on a physical release yet. Here's what I've come up with, and please let me know what I'm missing -

Studio -
Runaway

Live -
Under Pressure
Red House
Little Bit Of Love
Take Love
The Stealer
Warboys
Time To Shine
We Believe
Voodoo
Las Palabras De Amor
Surf's Up, School's Out

I read somewhere that QPR tried "Take Love" in the studio (a natural choice, given it was finished before TCR was started), but weren't satisfied with how it sounded, kind of like "Mad The Swine" off Queen.

Of course, I also read a Paul interview where he said they didn't record it, so who knows. I have to believe they at least *tried* it in the studio.

Yeah, I thought about Long Away, but how much of the song was done? Do I remember Brian doing 1 verse on 2 nights on the 2005 European tour?


As for Take Love, yeah, I think Brian said they started it but didn't think it was working. Paul also said there were songs they left off the album, which I interpret as at least one more unknown track. I assume it wasn't a Brian one given he was unhappy with his ability to contribute - given he  sang, played guitar and bass I can only assume he meant he wanted to write more than 3 tracks.

Yeah, you're right. Pesaro and Budapest. He later played it again in Yokohama, Nagoya and Fukuoka and there's where I thought it was a more complete version but ... nah, just a couple (but really appreciated!) verses.

A live version of "Take Love," from one of the North American dates, would have been a great B-side track for either "Say It's Not True" or "C-lebrity." It's sort of become the QPR equivalent of "Hangman," played live a lot, but never finished in the studio and given a proper release. Now both are sitting in a vault somewhere. At least I can say I heard "Take Love" live and in person.

And if anyone at Queen Productions is reading this, making "Take Love (Live from [insert venue here])" available at the Queen Online Download Store would be a very appreciated move. Not to mention, it would cost little to master and post, but the fans would definately snatch it up and QP would reap the financial benefits (wink, wink).

For all the complaints of the set list being too static, there was a hell of a lot of variety really.

Wasn't A Little Bit Of Love on one of the USA Tour releases of the special Live CDs? There were three in all. They were physical releases.
And the hungarian song Brian played on the last tour?

The three CDs were given away when you bought the Gold and Platinum tickets on the USA tour.
I have uploaded them here to view.
They all featured the live tracks that were available via queenonline at the time.

So, if you bought Gold or Platinum tickets (on the North American Tour), they mailed you the CDs which contained the previously downloadable tracks from the European Tour?

They were in a goody bag with stickers, Specially made poster, laminated pass, programme and other items too.
Anyone from USA on here who can elaborate?

A very nice set.

There's also the live verisons of songs like Hammer To Fall at manchester 2005 where Roger and Brian shared vocals.
Seriously, this is the kind of thing that fans want to hear in decent sound quality, yet the live downloads keep missing this stuff out.
They really haven't got a clue have they?

Europe Live was a part of the VIP packages on the '05 NJ and LA tour dates.  Europe Live Gold was in the gold packages on the '06 North American tour and Europe Live Platinum was in the platinum packages.

I got a platinum package for the '05 NJ show mainly to ensure I got a decent seat at the show.  It turns out I could have just bought some from Ticketmaster and been ok.  There was supposed to be a special "box set," which turned out to be a plain metal lunch box, with the ROTC DVD and CD stuck inside. :-S  We did get stickers.  I guess that was meant to decorate the lunch box?  The rest of the package was the poster, promo cd, laminate, and an autographed program.  I think it was $500 for the package, if I remember correctly.

Oh yeah, A Little Bit Of Love is on Europe Live Platinum.

Do you feel suitiably stupid? Do you feel like Queen have bent you over and buggered you senseless? This is how anyone who has been a fan for more than 15 years of their lives feels everytime they bring out a pathetically veiled re release of greatest hits.
