Not too bad, but FFS what's with the live tracks from different eras? The whole 77 BBC session needs to come out and this is the perfect opportunity. The US Staying Power would've been good.

Some interesting unreleased stuff there. Wave 3 should be amazing.

No real logic to any of the bonus tracks but a few are more interestng than the first batch.

I'd like to hear: 

Feelings Feelings (Take 10, July 1977)
Don't Stop Me Now (With Long-Lost Guitars) ----> most interesting of all the bonus tracks so far
Dreamers Ball (Early Acoustic Take, August 1978)
Sail Away Sweet Sister (Take 1 With Guide Vocal, February 1980)
It's A Beautiful Day (Original Spontaneous Idea, April 1980)
The Hero (October 1980... Revisited)
The Kiss (Early Version, March 1980)
Football Fight (Early Version, No Synths! - February 1980)

All the live versions are fine but should be included on proper, full live releases.

As I wrote elsewhere - they could and SHOULD have released the 2000 Club Mix of "Under Pressure". That's arguably the most interesting official remix of a Queen song and it still hasn't seen a CD release.

Lost opportunity indeed...

these are the real reasons to buy this 2nd batch, for many of us. This is the stuff we´ve been craving for years.
As long as they keep including material like this instead of new a capella or vocal+guitar mixes, etc etc, I´ll be satisfied.
I don´t even mind the inclusion again and again of material from MK and now Montreal. It was predictable. But this new move wasn´t. So, at last, I can show a thumb up !!

The material listed above is the prove of how glorious the long-awaited anthology could be.

It is also clear that all the BBC stuff will be packed together sooner or later for a proper release.

Better than first 5 albums bonus tracks, because there's even some stuff I never heard about (demos/alternate versions of Don't Stop Me Now, Football Fight, Dreamer's Ball etc). But actually it could be much better.

Me with this parties remastered interested :

Don't Stop Me Now (With Long-Lost Guitars)
Sail Away Sweet Sister (Take 1 With Guide Vocal, February 1980)
It's A Beautiful Day (Original Spontaneous Idea, April 1980)
The Hero (October 1980... Revisited)

The rest, unfortunately, did not surprise me ...
I hope the last batch reamsterów from The Works Made In Heaven gave something really unknown ... something really cool, and not just some vocal & guitar

Most probably 7" (Disclaimer: that's just an educated guess, I don't have any inside information). I'm guessing that they are saving the 12" (extended) mixes for a special release.

Generally good feedback. I think I'm more excited by these than the last batch now. A shame it hints they have listened to the fans and added unreleased takes - an opportunity missed for the first batch now.

I was thinking that was a bit over the top - but if each set contained 2 albums (is that what you meant?) I could see that working nicely. If clumsily.

Another live version of Action This Day! Great! I really hope Roger's vocal can be heard well enough. I think they did a pretty bad job with the MK version.

This........SUCKS!!!!!!!! QPL? Why can't you get your fucking heads out of your asses!!!! I sure hope this isn't the final choice of tracks. Action this Day from Tokyo 1982....are you kidding me? That's the worst version of the song and there's nothing surprising on any of these tracks!!!!

Please tell me this is a bad dream.

For someone else it might be interesting but bonus tracks from Hot Space IS NOT interesting at all, for me of course...

By the way, Back Chat (Single Remix) will be from 7'' SP release I guess (because we have it on the Singles Box Set -)))
