It might have been wiser to leave one entire track off the vinyl, rather than edit more than half the individual songs. I have Innuendo on vinyl, cassette (the first version I owned) and CD. The tracks I've noted as edited are:
I'm Going Slightly Mad (the same edit edit appears on Greatest Hits II)
All God's People (fades out about 30 seconds early)
These Are The Days Of Our Lives (starts with Freddies vocal, no percussion intro)
The Hitman (edited by 2 minutes or so)
Don't Try So Hard (minor edit, but it is there)
Bijou (cut down to only about 1 minute)
What I find amusing is that Bijou was written, according to Brian, as an experiment with Freddie to see if they could inverse the structure of a song, so rather than:
Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Guitar Solo, Chorus, Verse, Chorus...
which is a standard structure for a lot of songs, they tried:
Guitar Verse, Guitar Chorus, Guitar Verse, Guitar Chorus, Vocal Solo, Guitar Verse, Guitar Chorus, Guitar Chorus...
It's hard to break the song down into verses and choruses, but there are certainly repeating motifs and "guitar lyrics," and that was Queen experimenting right up to the end. What's amusing to me is that in editing the track on the Innuendo LP, the record company only kept the "solo" ("God forbid we cut out lyrics! Heavens to Betsy!") where in a standard song, the solo would likely get cut down in favour of lyrics.
Either way, this song, one the best guitar pieces on a Queen album, seriously got the shaft!
Here's a quote from Brian, via Queenvault:
Brian May: "Bijou was written by Freddie and I together - it was really inspired (in us both!) by Jeff Beck .... I don't know if you realize already, but the song has an unusual format - we wanted to make it a song "inside out" (with its heart on its sleeve). The main parts of the song are played on guitar instead of being sung, and in the middle, where the guitar solo would normally be, appears the short vocal section. The vocal is a succinct and very precise little verse, a little gem, a "Bijou" - a jewel buried at the heart of the piece: hence the name of the song. Each bit of the melody was alive in our heads and "hummed" before it was played - Freddie coming up with the beginning line which started us off on the trail. Those days were very creative - good times.... !"
