Real or fake??

Sounds like Freddie.

What's the opinion on this?

Cheers all!

Sounds like the real thing.
But I don't like these things to see the light of day.
Every band has a right of privacy, this recording may have been the result of waiting for the pizza man to arrive. But being published people start analysing and even critisizing those moments. Or they even try to read an unpublished song into it.

The track was played publically by David Richards, and surely he didn't go behind the band's back..

Instead, I read a published song into this one :)

Grand Dame is a great tune as well.

I think it´s at least curious David Richards aired these songs prior to the new remasters+ bonus EP´s ...as if it was something like a test to check fans´ reactions or something like that.

wouldn´t be surpised, after the inclusion of demo material on batch 2 of the remasters, if a tune like "Affairs" was included in the Innuendo bonus EP.

Hey, after "Feeling Feelings", everything´s possible, isn´t it ? :)

-----------------

Let me correct that: "Everything IS possible, but eventually we can only dream of ending up with ONE unreleased demo per album, at the most."

The Innuendo Bonus EP will most likely look like this:
1. Lost Opportunity
2. I Can't Live with You (1997 Rocks retake)
3. Headlong (Guitars only version or Some stupid thing like that)
4. All God's People (A capella)
5. ONE unreleased demo (hopefully)

Or, if they REALLY want to give us the finger, they will swap the unreleased demo with Bijou ("Brian may solo - YES, SOLO!-  Live at Kharkov 2008") .

I'm a little scared about The Miracle Deluxe edition, because they have B-sides songs and CT for the second disc and is not be necessary to add worthless tracks, i mean,

A desirable bonus disc could be:

1. Hang On In There
2. Stealin
3. Hijack My Heart
4. My Life Has Been Saved
5. Chinesse Torture
6. Breakthru (12'' Version)

But i will need to be prepared for something like this:

1. I Want It All (Single Version)
2. Hang On In There
3. Chinese Torture
4. The Invisible Man (extended version)
5. Scandal (extended version)
6. The Miracle (Classic Queen edit version) :P

I prefeer to get The Miracle with all the B sides, instead of demos. Leave demos for an Antologhy...(if i am not dead before)

Is anybody keeping a database of all the leaked demos and takes and unreleased stuff and  so forth that are out there? I know there used to be a website that laid out different versions and edits and mixes that were out there commercially but there's really been an explosion of "Property of Queen Productions" style recordings floating around and I frankly have lost track of them all.


Hoo-RAY!

I think HOIT, CT and TIM(12") will be on the first disc as they're officially on the album. 
Hoping for a bonus disc with B-sides as well btw.

HOIT, CT and TIM(12") officially are EXTRA TRACKS on The Miracle CD, not on the album. Hope they will be on bonus CD but they need to extend it from 5 tracks to 10 or something as well as for AKOM and The Works 'cause there're a lot of official extra tracks were released in time of these albums.

It seems we'll not receive any extended version for '84-'89 albums.

I feel cheated by the band for not putting all rarities out there, already - I am not gonna buy the next Re-Re-Re-Release only because of one additional song. That beeing said: The Miracle or Innuendo without all "rare" tracks will be highly offensive!!

sorry to say this, but you have just posted the most "wrong" statement ever made on this site ***
it is nOT our right, and never will be. we don't have "rights" as regards someone else's original work.
the only rights lie with the artist themselves - and if they don't choose to release this stuff then we have no reason to complain.



***except for Treasure Moment's claim to be the next great thing in music
