On ebay there is a south korean press of Innuendo that I'm interested in...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160377654571&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT
I already own 2 UK pressings of Innuendo (one with poster) and this Korean pressing caught my eye...
Does anyone know anything about this record?
Thanks!

Yes, I know lots about this record, but after the court case I signed a confidentiality agreement so I'm afraid you'll have to wait until the posthumous release of my memoirs, current working title "PG's Tips for life"

Hah. Funny. I'll be waiting for your memoirs then.

10 things you might not know about the Korean pressing of QUEEN - INNUENDO

1.  There are 12 tracks on this record

2.  There are a bunch of funny looking chinese characters all over the sleeve.  Who knows what they say?  Could be a recipe for Won Ton soup

3.  The "hoop diddies" are actually overdubbed in Korean

4.  The people that made the record probably didn't get paid real well and you'd be exploiting them

5.  There is no shrinkwrap on this album.

6.  It is illegal to play the record on a NORTH Korean record player.  The penalty is death.

7.  Buying this record will put you on a U.S. Government Watch List.

8.  Innuendo got really bad reviews in the Korean press.  

9.  Delilah is actually the official theme song for an entree at Korean Burger Kings. 

10.  Most of the songs are edited for time reasons

Yeah that was funny :D, I guess my question was trivial in some way.
I just wanted to know if this record was a gem, english is (obviously) not my first language and I'm having a hard time understanding the english description and details, on pcpki.com/queen this record is listed as uncommon, and in my head thats the step below rare, but I must have gotten something wrong.
Well thanks anyway!

I guess this is something only you can decide. If you own two versions already you are clearly not going to get anything new musically from this. Personally I tend only to collect records with unique tracks/remixes etc.

I know fo nothing special about this record, but value is a very personal thing. I just spend £80 on a CD just becuase it had a minor edit of one track ( My wife thinks I am nuts)

I agree, the value of things are often in the collectors mind...
I know now that the 4 page insert is all in Korean so I'm not going to bid on that version of Innuendo.

I think my fiancee would sympathize with your wife, he can't understand why I buy old records in all shapes and forms when they can easily be downloaded for free :D
