So this is what we are getting on April 4th according to this place.

Might get it cheaper in Amazon and places like that.

I got an email about that as well.

So if the release date is March 14th...why April 4th for the box????

Surely not hoping that the more mental amongst us wil not be able to wait and buy the individual albums on the 14th and then buy the box set AS WELL on the 4th?????

(and then the itunes sets for the videos)

This is the decision I've made - ALL my current Queen collection is up for sale.  I mean everything - all the LPs, CDs, Cassettes, singles, boxes, solo stuff, books etc I have.  I will then buy the new remasters so I just have 1 set of everything, in the new Island era, and that will be it.  And since this box is coming out, I'll do it that way.  So I'll wait until April rather than next week.  And once again, I'll say fuck iTunes.

I wasn't planning on getting the re-releases but now that I've seen this box I'm mad for them!

(Sorry - I couldn't stay quiet any longer)

Wow Thistleboy - you're a brave chap - i couldn't part with my Queen lp's (even tho they're later matrix numbers and I and II are Fame editions!) Are you putting them up on ebay?

It's better to buy each disc on March 14.

It's already on ebay. Hasn't sold as of yet, but have had lots of interest and a few very promising mails about it.  Wouldn't bother me at all if it went - I used to think it would, but at the end of the day I have the music, the videos, the shows, the memories etc, and it's stuff that can be re-collected if I ever wanted.
