I finally got a scanner and posted pics of this (so far) unique cdr on discogs:

I will probably sell this cd by the end of the year. Will keep this forum posted.

It's not a bootleg. It came from Hollywood Records.

It's pretty common that a band releases an official product which is called a "bootleg". Strange, but true :)

And if anyone buys this from you, they must have more money than sense; it's a simple compilation of the "bonus" tracks from the HR re-issues.

None of which are worth having.

For those here that DON'T know what this release is go to:

http://www.discogs.com/Queen-BASIC-Queen-Bootlegs/release/598755

I bought this from eil.com (esprit in UK) back in 2000 for a good amount and so far no other copies have surfaced. Esprit confirmed it as authentic (they do not sell bootlegs). My guess is that someone at the label burned a few in-house in 1999.

5 or 6 of the mixes on this cdr appear nowhere else. As a club dj, I can remember discussing this release (before it got cancelled) with a Hollywood Basic promotions rep in 1991 or 1992 and being told who remixed what songs, which matches what is on this cdr. I can only imagine that the response to this release would have been pretty negative from most Queen fans due to the raps over some of the songs.

There was a thread on this forum a few years back about all this but I think it is inaccesable now. I posted some low quality mono samples and there were some interesting comments from those on the thread.
