We Are The Champions is an inofficial Japanese CD that contains the official Queen versions.
It was released on Jaspac records (JPO-167) in 1993. 1000 copies were made.

Although euro's didn't exist then, the price then was about 20 euro. No idea what it's value would be nowadays. Not much, I guess.

I'm more interested about the Time Machine you used to go back in time four years before it's release.

Do you think you could go back again and get Freddie's autograph?  Or maybe go back a few years more and warn Freddie to stay away from "that guy".

It was infact 1991 when it was bought. It was the last time i was in Munich. I would imagine the release date is wrong!

I don't want to claim that my information is right. I don't own the cd but used a bootleg catalog from 1996.
I couldn't discover the year on the printed sleeve
