Here is version 2 of my guide to the Queen demos/unreleased material. It’s been updated with some new tracks that have come to light recently (From the Italian Convention) and I’ve added the links for some tracks I shared a few weeks back. I’ve also added descriptions to all tracks that aren’t shared.

To make it as easy as possible for people who used the last version here are a full list of changes:
1)    Status of ‘You and I (Convention Recording)’ changed to ‘Shared’ and link added.
2)    Status of ‘All Dead All Dead (Convention Recording)’ changed to ‘Shared’ and link added.
3)    Link to upgraded version of ‘Coming Soon (Convention Recording)’ added.
4)    Entry for ‘Don’t Stop Me Now (Convention Recording)’ added.
5)    Entry added for ‘Innuendo (Convention Recording)’.
6)    Entry and link added for ‘Don’t Try So Hard (Convention Recording)’.
7)    Entry and link added for ‘Affairs (Convention Recording)’.
8)    Entry and link added for ‘Grand Dame (Convention Recording)’.

This includes all the material I have heard of; but nothing that has ever been released (So there's no Hitman/Butterfly/Guitar Hero stems etc.).

I wanted to make this guide as clear as possible, so each track has a status to show how certain we can be it exists:

1)    Shared: These tracks are available to all, and wherever possible I’ve included a download link.
2)    Uncirculated: The track exists, and is in the hands of collectors, but it's not freely circulating.
3)    Not recorded: We know that some tracks have been played at convention, but have never surfaced. It’s possible these are in the hands of a few people, but it’s always possible they were not recorded at the time.
4)    In the vaults: We know the track exists, but as yet it hasn't seen the light of day
5)    Rumour: This track may exist, or it may not. In some cases it is possible that the title is an alternative name for a known track.

The simple rule is unless I have heard the track, someone I know and trust has heard the track, or there is a cast iron official source then it goes down as a rumour.

This is supposed to be a dialogue, not a lecture, so please add any more information you can to this. If you have any information, but don’t want to share it in the open, then please contact me at jam_monkey@hotmail.com and I can post it on your behalf. I’ve added an * next to the tracks I’d like more information on.

*Hangman
Status:   Uncirculated
This is the track everyone wants to hear. Although played live in the early days Queen always denied a studio version existed, however one well know Queen collector owns a 10” Trident acetate containing just that.

*Rock n’ Roll Medley
Status:   Uncirculated
Early Queen concerts always finished with a Rock n’ Roll medley so it makes sense that they recorded a studio version. This is on another 10” acetate similar to Hangman, in the hands of the same collector. We don’t know exactly what songs it contains but Jailhouse Rock, Stupid Cupid and Bama Lama Bama Loo would seem to be strong contenders.

Flick Of The Wrist (Convention Recording) 3:17
Status:   Uncirculated
An (almost) instrumental version of the track, this appears to be fairly close to the album version, although some guitars are missing. Most of the backing vocals remain.

*Stone Cold Crazy (Multi-track recording)
Status:   Uncirculated
Of the five multi-tracks to find their way out of the vaults this is the one only that remains under wraps. I know a few people who claim to have it, but no one who’s willing to prove it.

*You Take My Breath Away (Convention Recording)
Status:   Rumour
Rumoured to be an early take with just Freddie on piano and vocals.

Long Away (Convention Recording) 2:48
Status:   Uncirculated
This track is an instrumental of the song which seems very similar to the album version, if not identical. Due to an early fade the running time is about 45 seconds shorter than the album.

There are a couple of sources that confirm this track was played at the convention. It is supposedly the drums/bass/piano backing track with no guitars or vocals, but I can’t confirm that.

The Game:
Dragon Attack (Instrumental) 4:15
Status:   Uncirculated
An instrumental version of this track appears on Queen: The Eye in a remixed form. This track is an instrumental of the album version.

*Dragon Attack (Convention Recording)
Status:   Rumour
Rumoured to be an early instrumental take of the track. You may see a track claiming to be Dragon Attack, but it is actually an early instrumental jam of ‘Coming Soon’ which has been mislabelled (See link below).

Status:   Rumour
This rumour seems to have started in the Spring 1980 Fan Club Magazine. It mentions that Andy Gibb visited Queen in the studio and sung on an unfinished Freddie composition, although we have no way of knowing what track it was or if it still exists.

*There Must Be More To Life Than This (Queen Version)
Status:   In the vaults
A number of solo tracks started life with Queen. Greg Brooks confirmed in Freddie Mercury: The Solo Collection that a Queen version of this track exists, and we can only hope that one day it will be released.

*Let Me Live (With Rod Stewart)
Status:   Rumour
It’s been long rumoured that this track started life in the early 80’s as a collaboration with none other than Rod Stewart, but no evidence or official source is available.

*Whipping Boy
Status:   Rumour
One theory says this track is an alternative title for ‘I Go Crazy’, or it may be a whole new track. It’s all guess work really.

The Works:
It’s A Hard Life (Edited Convention Recording) 1:41
Status:   Shared
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?1znzmynktn1

It’s A Hard Life (Full Convention Recording) 4:25
Status:   Uncirculated
This track features a different vocal take to the version found on ‘The Works’. The backing track would seem to be the same, although there is some extra piano and a count in at the start. An edited version of this convention recording has been shared, the full version remains uncirculated.

*Love Kills (Queen Version)
Status:   In the vaults
Another Freddie track that started life with Queen, again confirmed by Greg Brooks in Freddie Mercury: The Solo Collection.

*Man Made Paradise (Queen Version)
Status:   In the vaults
Once more the existence of this track was confirmed by Greg Brooks in Freddie Mercury: The Solo Collection.

*Man Made Paradise (Convention Recording)
Status:   Uncirculated/Not recorded
We know from Brian’s website that this track was played at the 2001 convention. Supposedly only 50 seconds in length it has never surfaced, and we have no way of knowing of this is the most complete version of the track.

*Is The World We Created (Piano Version)
Status:   Rumour
As this track was by Freddie and Brian it makes sense that they recorded a piano and guitar version, but it’s all guess work again. I suppose we’ll just have to wait for the box sets!

*Man On Fire (Queen Version)
Status:   Rumour
An early track listing for ‘The Works’ on a tape cassette lists Man On Fire (Which ended up on Strange Frontier) as a track. If there is a Queen version I for one would love to hear it, but we don’t know how complete it is.

*Let Me In (Your Heart Again) (Queen Version)
Status:   Rumour
Another song listed as a track for ‘The Works’ on the famous cassette sleeve. I also heard somewhere that Greg Brooks confirmed a complete Queen version at the convention, but I can’t seem to find a source for that. For now we’ll have to make do with the Anita Dobson version.

A Kind Of Magic:
One Vision (Convention Recording) 2:22
Status:   Shared
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?mndrjgyuujj

Pain Is So Close Of Pleasure (Convention Recording) 4:33
Status:   Uncirculated
An early take of this song, the backing track is similar to the album except for the addition of some extra keyboards. There is a different vocal take, with some minor changes to the lyrics.

Back To Storm 1:37
Status:   Uncirculated
A short, high energy demo which sounds a lot like it was written by Freddie. Featuring drums, bass, piano and some ad-libbed vocals it’s similar in style and pace to ‘Sandbox’.

Little Boogie 0:42
Status:   Uncirculated
A short instrumental track featuring Freddie on piano. Very similar to ‘Back To Storm’ this seems likely to be an early version of that track.

Tavaszi Szel Vizet Araszt (Rehearsal) 1:37
Status:   Shared
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?tho5iutnfey

*Heaven For Everyone (Queen Version)
Status:   Rumour
There is a persistent rumour that this track started life with Queen, but no proof seems to exist. The rumour maybe something to do with the fact that Freddie sings lead vocal on The Cross version.

*Friends In Pain
Status:   Rumour
Another rumour! I happen to think that there is some confusion going on here with ‘Friends Will Be Friends’ and ‘Pain Is So Close To Pleasure’ but I am guessing, as is everyone else.

*Party (Convention Recording)
Status:   Uncirculated/Not recorded
Another one of the tracks from the 2001 convention, as confirmed on Brian’s site. This is rumoured to be a stand-alone version of the track, rather like the shared ‘Khassoggi’s Ship’ recording, although no copy has ever surfaced.

*Breakthru (Convention Recording)

*Face It Alone (Full Convention Recording)
Status:   Uncirculated
The full version of this convention recording in supposed to be 10 minutes long and contain 3 versions of the track. Two of those versions have leaked (See above), but the rest of the recording is still highly sought after.

Face It Alone (Demo Version 1) 5:20
Status:   Uncirculated
This version of Face It Alone is not a convention recording! Musically it is the same as the 2nd convention recording, but greatly extended.
There are an additional 30 seconds at the start which included Freddie giving instructions to Brian; and an additional 3 minute guitar solo at the end. This is the most complete version of the track I know of.

Face It Alone (Demo Version 2) 3:58
Status:   Uncirculated
Another non-convention version of this track, it features Brian experimenting on the guitar and is completely instrumental.

Innuendo:
Innuendo (Convention Recording)
Status:   Uncirculated
Played by David Richards as the 2010 Italian Convention, this is apparently a ‘rough mix’ of the track, before it was mastered.

Status:   Shared
Link: http://www.mediafire.com/?mmjkzmyoeco

*Headlong (Convention Recording)
Status:   Uncirculated/Not recorded
Another 2001 convention track, this time with Brian’s guide vocal. If you listen carefully to the shared demo you can hear Brian singing as well as Freddie, so it seems reasonable to assume this is the same demo, but without Freddie’s vocal.

*Assassin
Status:   Rumour
This rumour has been around for a long time, and never seems to go away. A couple of very bad fakes have surfaced over the years, but nothing else. If someone has this they are keeping it well under wraps, but I can’t be the only one to think this is just another title for ‘The Hitman’.

*Freedom Train (Queen Version)
Status:   Rumour
There are a lot of rumours about solo songs starting life with Queen, and this is just another one. Someone tried to sell me a very bad fake of this track once, so watch out. As far as I can tell there is no evidence this is real.

*Say It’s Not True (Original Version)
Status:   In the vaults
This is the only ‘46664’ track that hasn’t come to light, although of course we now have a version with Paul Rodgers. It’s a little disappointing original version wasn’t released as a B-side to the QPR single.

Could the Hot Space 'demos' be tagged as Alternate Take, from now on? They're not demo's.

Also, the Home Demo of Open Windows, should be tagged as Home Demo

I would have thought that Affairs and Grande Dame would have sparked some form of discussion on the board here. I for one have never heard them until I saw your links, thanks Jam Monkey. Are we getting complacent about new tracks?

I think Affairs is a good idea...similar to I Guess We're Falling Out. But I can see why it would have been discarded, it has a few nice chords and an alright melody, but there is a boredom factor to it...hard to explain. Similarly I wouldn't be interested in a fully written, recorded and released version of My Secret Fantasy.

Can't tell why that guitar solo is called Grand Dame, but it sounds like a Freddie title. No vocals...could have been incorporated into a different song to fill some gaps. No major suprises either...

But it's always nice to hear some new sounds by the band.

Wow! I wasn't aware some of these were available in FLAC. Upgrade time! Thanks.

Run a spectrum analysis program (EAC has one) and you will notice it's:

I would have thought that Affairs and Grande Dame would have sparked some form of discussion on the board here. I for one have never heard them until I saw your links, thanks Jam Monkey. Are we getting complacent about new tracks?

Freedom Train starting off as a Queen-track is not really a rumour. I asked Greg about this at the Dutch Convention in (I think) 2003 and he confirmed that it was started as a Queen-track. Probably very unlikely that we'll ever see this though...?
