Hehe, indeed that came in my mind, too.

But let's not forget the really important things. I never saw a record store in Teheran just boxes with a lot of cassettes in it and mostly somewhere in between a guy with mustache to grab the money I spent.
But hey maybe Istanbul is the same but on www.queenmuseum.com there's a picture of a turkish 7" of Somebody To Love, so I should keep my eyes open.

regards

Dear little foetus,

thank you very much. They really released the Bicycle Race 7" with the naked ladies on the front cover in Turkey? Unbelievable.

So I'll try to make it into record stores if there are some left, though.

Thanks again
regards

It's not the Bicycle Race 7", it is the Jazz LP. Don't have any clue if it's official but it seems to.

So back from the Bosphorus.
I found nothing. Actually there was only one record store but the sold new  ones and no 2nd hand.
I was told about  a quarter with old stores but I found anything but records. So sad it ends...

Thanks you
W.
