The thing about Face It Alone is that it is not one song, but many versions of a song. There are the two versions that have been shared, and I believe that the full convention tape has another version as well.

what you have to bear in mind is that FIA - like many of the demos/outtakes circulated - are demos/outtakes because they weren't deemed good enough or didn't fit in with the recordings the band were making.

therefore, - apart from curiosity value - most of the circulated outtakes are not great by queen standards.

in fact, i would go so far as to say that the early stuff is the stuff of some "genuinely listenable" value.

1. We know it exhists
2. Yes, more of it exhists.
3. Yes, a lot of people actually have the full version, even people who you think are "jerks" and "jokers"
4. No, the song was never completed, and if you listen to it ten times, it's more boring than anything Queen have released... except maybe for 'She Makes Me'

Judging by the demos we HAVE heard, Face It Alone is nothing special. It's one of those things that people have built up to be something it could never hope to be.

I love the bits that David Fuller has put up on YouTube of Face It Alone...it's got great, melodic guitar, with that sorta of Egyptian feel Brian sometimes did around the Innuendo era...along with a beautiul super-melodic vocal from Freddie.  I hope we get to hear the full version one day.

Are you going to keep writing the same post for every unreleased track?

I always loved the guitar on this one. It was an interesting idea to have vocals and lead guitar together. I would have liked to have seen it taken further.

actually there are rumors that this song has been finished and that what we hear is just one of demo's of it, basically, early demo of the song that has been completed.

maybe we will hear it when Anthology comes out?

max recorded a nother remix (like remember when he said he made These are the days of or lives 'better' because he added shitty synth to it) he recorded a version of Face it alone and wrote new lyrics for it but thankfully has been talked out of uploading it...

I've no doubt there are more complete versions that we have heard, but as for the Anthology...

I am 31 now, and I hope it comes out before I am 75!

Why are we even talking about this lost Queen track if MAX HAS RECORDED A REMIX?  That should be more than enough.

Let's just get Max to record all the unreleased Queen tracks and bring the whole Queen Machine down.  Can't you imagine how great it will feel when John Stuart or Greg Brooks offers a copy of Hangman Studio Version and you can say "No thanks, I already have one.  It's very nice," using a Monty Python French accent?

You're right. I might as well just delete all my unreleased stuff right now, it's only taking up hard disc space after all.
