I am working on a comprehensive list of Queen releases in the U.K. and the U.S. and I need some help.
I am looking for the release dates (month and date) of the 1993-94 Digital Remaster Series as well as the release dates (again, month and date) of the 1986 U.K. cd releases. If anyone could help that would be awesome! Thank you.

Hi,

It seems like we share the same interest! I hope the following helps you.

December 1st, 1986 saw the release of:
Queen / Queen II / SHA / ANATO / ADATR / NOTW / Jazz / LK / The Game / Flash Gordon / HS

Digital Remasters:

September 27th, 1993:
SHA / ANATO / ADATR / NOTW

February 7th, 1994:
Jazz / The Game / HS / The Works

April 5th, 1994:
Queen / Queen II / LK / Flash Gordon

May 5th, 1994:
Greatest Hits

The above are all Parlophone Digital Remasters. EMI also released Remasters in 1992, but I do not have any dates.

Do you know any release dates of the Elektra and Capitol releases from the USA?

by the way Hot Space was released May 25, 1982. That is for the LP and cassette I can't find if there was a cd released in 1982.

I don't think that Hot Space was released by Capitol Records or Elektra. Hollywood Records first released the back catalogue in 1991.

Are you sure those releasedate are for the cd albums? The dates you have are for the vinyls and I am not sure the vinyls and the cds were released the same day.

Elektra Records also released News of the World and The Game in the early eighties. You can quite easily find them on eBay. Search for "Target" and the album title.

Yes Hot Space was released on CD in 1982, three years before the first CD (ABBA) was ever pressed.  It is probably the rarest CD ever.

I think it was released on Rap-A-Lot records, the same company that produced The Ghetto Boys.

Those dates are for the vinyls and cassette and I thought they would be for the CD's as well. I will do some more digging and see what I can find.
Thank you.

The first album to be released on CD was Billy Joel's 52nd Street, that reached the market alongside Sony's CD player CDP-101 on October 1, 1982 in Japan.

Interesting. Where did you find those release dates, if I may ask?

Most of my Queen CD's are from that "area", and on Hot Space, there's a little, weird pause on Back Chat.
I posted a thread about this a couple of years ago. I just thought it might be of interest to you...?

Good luck with the project!
