Hello.

I got this Box from a record store back in 1997 or something. It includes a book and a black and white Freddie picture of him holding a flower. It DID NOT include the TMLWKY CD single (although some sources say it does).

The book's cover shows the band inside a pool, with Brian actually superimposed on the picture (maybe he was behind the camera? hehe) and Roger looking gay-er than Freddie :P.

See the following images:

Box back: http://queencollector.narod.ru/tmlwkyboxback.jpg
Book cover: http://queencollector.narod.ru/tmlwkyboxbook.jpg

Does anybody know more about this? How much is it worth, if anything? It is obviously unofficial and I had it in a drawer for 12 years or so until I saw it featured in a Queen collectors' Website and I believe it was auctioned on eBay recently.

Any ideas?

Apparetly there is another one for Heaven for Everyone.

I know this box set as i owned it years ago, as far as i know they did something similar for Let Me Live. It is unoffical and has nothing to do with Queen Productions at all. As to it's value with the cd single or 7" included i wouldnt pay any more than £10 for it, but try ebay you never know how much it might make

seen it being sold over the years, very often at 25-40 dollars except one peak at 70.. it's a nice one with a book but no media inside. for those prices people are willing to pay, i would keep it rather than sell it. cheers

Yes indeed there is a version of Heaven for everyone as well out there.

Notice the TMLWKY is out there in 2 versions :
1 cd single
2 7"pink vinyl single

The packages are the same. 1000 were made of each set. This is not a official Queen product.
