Hi

I have a copy of the debut album original from 1973 on vinyl from Greece.

I have searched high and wide (including online, and QOL etc..) to find some info on release info for the Greek issue, but can't find anything at all; none of the stuff I can find includes Greece in the list of countries where the LP was released!! 

It definitely was, because I've got it, so the question is can anyone provide further details?  eg release date, chart positions etc...?  I can check out any differences in versions, sleeve etc.... but if anyone already knows of anything this would be helpful.

Cheers

I saw one in a store some months ago in Paris so I trust you. From what I remember, this release didn't have any particularities. Might be hard to find something about this release.

Do you have any other vinyl releases of their original LP?  Just curious as to differences regarding cover, sleeve, vinyl, etc.

Thanks in advance.

I have a copy of Queen II from Greece, so it makes sense that the debut LP would also have been released there.  My Queen II from Greece has the same tracklisting, running order and obviously no difference in the versions of songs used - however, it is a NON gatefold sleeve and is printed on a much thinner, flimsy paper-stock and the colours appear faded. I think the vinyl is also lighter. I can't imagine there would be too many differences between the UK and Greek versions of Q1, other than maybe slight colour variations or paper-stock used for the sleeve.  I don't think there would be differences in the songs.  As for chart positions, release dates etc - I'm searching too!!

As you can see, things are written with greek letters on sleeve and labels. A friend of mine has a regular greek copy and everything is in english.

That's quite nice - you thinking about selling?
