I have a Brazilian copie of Radio Ga Ga. It has to be played at 33 rpm instead of 45 rpm...
Was this perhaps the normal speed for a 7" single in Brazil?
How common is this?
(EMI 006 65532) translated lyrics on back of sleeve / normal sleeve front.
Couldn't find it on the internet.


We must all see to believe...

as far as I know the
I Was Born To Love You / Stop All The Fighting / Love Kills (Ext) / Stop All The Fighting (Ext)
(Double Single in gatefold sleeve)
version of Freddie's single that I have, is 33 rpm as well, or at least one of the two singles.

 That sounds like a 12'', or isn't it?


There are in fact a couple of singles that play one or both sides at 33,3rpm
I think the picturedisc of Let Me Live or No One But You might have a 33rpm b-side due to the fact that it contains more tracks.

45rpm is always prefered. Faster playtime means more data in the same timespan, means higher sample-rate.. means better quality :) simple really

If I remember correctly, the Let Me Live picture disc 7" does play at 33 rpm. I think both the A and B sides but I could be wrong about that last bit.

the double single I'm talking about is a double 7" single.
I'll look for it in my collection and make a scan of it.
