That's about what you'd expect to pay for it, maybe even a *little* less than usual. Whether or not it's worth it is a matter of personal preferences. I think it's a pretty good set, but you'd have to look up the specs on the web and see if it's your cup of tea.

I bought mine for 80 British pounds including international shipping (!) from an internet outlet called BlackStar which went bankrupt as a result :-)

I bought it new when it came out for a similar price. If you are a Freddie-fan I think it's a must-have. It's actually one of those very few Queen related things that has come out after Freddie's death that is really great. I wish they would do something similar with the Queen material.

I purchased mine when it first came out from Play.com but you can now get it from there for less than £90.00 with free delivery :-

I bought mine at a ''regular'' store.. If you are a big fan of Freddie's solo stuff, then it's WORTH getting it.

I also got this when it came out. It is the definitive Freddie collection and it was worth every penny I paid for it. It is quite big and is a beauty to behold. I couldn't tell you if it has "all" of Freddie's songs that have ever been released as I think there is one "on lover of life" cd which isn't on it? Anyone confim or correct me please.
Anyway the only reason for not owning this is if the price doesn't suit you!!!

No worries, Mike, I hope you are able to get it for that price and enjoy, mate!
