Just to clarify, and to what is also mentioned in another thread, this is not the final tracklisting.
Details will be released soon.

Oh good, I was afraid we wouldn't get the Wembley version of BoRhap as a bonustrack on ANATO.

It has been brought to my attention that the details currently published by UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE Japan at:
http://store.universal-music.co.jp/fs/artist/c/queen_all
were preliminary and are now outdated, and should not be regarded as the definitive product.

It would be nice if they could include the ORIGINAL version of "Mad The Swine", so that those of us who so wished could seamlessly insert it back where it was in the original listing.....

Seconded! Little things like that would make these re-issues more worthwhile.

If there is Commentary of the tracks by Roger and Brian, I would buy it but the rest is just an utter waste of time. It could be worse, Queen productions could have provided us with just fuzzy noises.

Save yourself the money, I can tell you exactly what 90% of the audio commentary for the tracks will be:

Roger Taylor:

Aaah yes, The March Of The Black Queen... One of Freddie's I believe. One of the longest tracks we ever did I think. Can't remember much about it, just being bored hahaha.

Brian May:

This is actually a bit of a pre-cursor to BoRhap, which was on the album that came after this one. Quite a interesting track, which was written in response to an old track of mine called White Queen because of the black/white theme we had on this album. There is actually an even longer version in our archives which has NEVER been heard.

The only one I'm excited about is You Take My Breath Away from Hyde Park. Why are they including audio from Hammersmith 1979 for most bonus tracks? Why not audio of the same songs from Rainbow 1974 as Freddie and the band sound much better...

What ? Somebody actually wants to hear the audio commentary ? Really ? I mean ... why ?
Every commentary track I've ever heard from Brian and Roger was rubbish . Well if they cut it together from some old interviews, it might be worth listening to, but if it's new, it's just a waste of CD space

It has been clearly stated that this is not the final track listing.

I'm excited to see what will be included as extras.  Only weeks ago, people on here were complaining that the releases were not slated to include a bonus cd.  Now it clear that they are considering a bonus cd for inclusion with the first 5 albums, and people are still unhapppy.

Let's try a positive thread for once.  To increase the likelihood of their being releases of meaterial you want, we should be sharing what we've enjoyed about past releases.

eg: Live at Wembley DVD.  I'm still playing this DVD like it was released only this week.  A fantastic show and it's great to have the whole gig.  I also enjoyed the edited releases from this tour (Live Magic/Budapest) too, but Live at Wembley is what I refer to as my screensaver DVD :)

cheers


I'm a long time queen fan from back in the late 70's.

Favourite albums are Queen II and Blue Rock.

Cheers to everyone from Melbourne.

Just a warning about SHMCD. As an audiophile I have a few. Ther mastering is the most important part. Chances are that new remasters will just be louder. If you are looking to upgrade the sound quality, simply buying a super high material CD is not as important as how it's remastered. In ths case, look for early Japanese non-remastered pressings. They have strange things like bass left  in it like it's supposed to. If anyone cares, google and your tube "loudness war". Basically, don't throw away your old cds

The Dude, have you listened to the new Greatest Hits?
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

I hold grave fears that they will be super loud and butchered.
