Just wondering what anyone with this disc has noticed in terms of what edits/mixes of songs were used. Does it have the single edit of Radio Ga-Ga, the correct original mix of Under Pressure, etc.?

Basically the most well-known (read: boring) versions of these tracks.

Would this be the first time the single version of One Vision appears on CD?  I'm thinking other compilations' edits of that song were slightly longer.

You are wrong. One Vison single mix was released on 1988 AKOM CD single, 1991 GHII, 2005 Jewels II.
1997 Queen Rocks has album version, 1992 Classic Queen has poorly edited (fade in / fade out) album version.
