Hello everybody, I was checking ebay, and i found Queen I vinyl in many different colors ranging from clear to green, to yellow and so on. But is this real? In the ad it said that it was some rare Czech pressing.. But why would Queen press this album in so many different colors, and why solely in the Czech Republic?

The records are definitely real, but I think they're semi-legal (i.e. not EMI/Parlophone pressings). Still, worth collecting IMO :)

I think that there's a red(ish) / purple coloured one that's an official release, which usually fetches around £50, but the others are bootlegs.  That's my understanding of it anyway.

Hugo, can you do me a small favour please?  You've spelled Freddie with a "Y" in that quote you use as your signature - fancy changing it to Freddie with ie?  lol
