Looking ahead to the release of The Works, A Kind of Magic, The Miracle, Innuendo and Made in Heaven I was wondering what the bonus CD's would contain in the deluxe versions. TW and AKOM would no doubt have a couple of live tracks we already have but I was thinking more of the last three. What would these contain as Freddie never performed any of these live it would be limited to instrumentals and previously unreleased tracks (fingers crossed). I suspect The Miracle may contain A New Life is Born and perhaps Dog with a Bone and Lost Opportunity might appear on Innuendo but after that I am stuck for ideas as to what might be released. I just hope for Made in Heaven we don't get solo versions of IWBTLY, MIH and TMLWKY. Any thoughts?

They'll miss a great opportunity if The Miracle doesn't contain all the non album B-side. That would be a fantastic package. Please not the demos or 12" mixes.

The Works needs to have the single versions (they are different enough to warrant inclusion). I've kind of given up trying to guess these bonuses - they don't seem to adhere to any rules!

I could do without Stealin'!

As a side point - I wonder if they'd follow the original CD versions of the albums - IE having 'the extra magical ingredients' on the main AKOM CD plus the bonus disc, and the 3 (or was it 4?) additional tracks on the end of the original Miracle CD in addition to the bonus disc. That would be nice. Or just keep the vinyl tracklistings?

Isle of Red....good opinion, and that's why most of your suggestions won't make it;-)

As to MIH......the 45 edit of 'A Beautiful Day' makes sense.  And then they'll add four (or more) of the sixteen YDFM versions, just to keep in line with the overall quality of the previous releases.

if the previous does appear on the releases I will be very disappointed as I own 99.9% of what was listed......we want tracks we havent heard before....much unheard magic is there from the tape reels....just waiting to be heard.......just even the chatter between the band is magic let alone all the unfinished songs....demos of songs....takes of songs.....home recordings....and unheard alternative lyrics for at least of 85% of the entire queen catalogue..............thats alot of hours of listening magic that has never seen the light of day......

- Stone Cold Crazy (live at the Rainbow)
- My Melancholy Blues (live at Houston)

I doubt those would be on a Miracle re-issue, seeing as the remake of KYA was on ANATO and the demo for Beautiful Day will appear on the Game - thus appearing on the record from the era they were recorded in, NOT the era in which the original recording was released.

We haven't even started the compiling of material for what we can use for the third and final batch of CD re-issues.

But obviously, there is going to be more tracks to choose from than the last two batches.
As someone has pointed out already, there are no rules regarding the tracks that make up the bonus EPs. It's nice to have a bit of everything, including live tracks, demos, single versions and BBC sessions, and more tracks will be considered for the last batch that have never seen the light of day, I'm sure.

And before anyone says it's up to us at QPL what eventually gets chosen, it's not, it's down to Brian and Roger.

- Man Made Paradise (Queen version)
- Love Kills (Queen version)
- Let Me Live (demo version from 1983)
- Friends In Pain (if it even exists)
- Stealin (12 minutes version)
- Dog With A Bone
- I Guess We're Falling Out
- A New Life Is Born
- Ride The Wild Wind (Roger's vocal take)
- Innuendo (Roger's vocal take)
- Robbery
- My Secret Fantasy
- Self Made Man
- Face It Alone

There's probably more...

since we're on the topic of the next remaster releases, What 14 tracks from the final 5 albums would be used for Deep Cut 3.
