Out of 30 tracks, I can see 4 of interest.

I'm disappointed too. The first two batches bonus EP had some nice moments but here we really have nearly nothing interesting. :/

Sigh, continuing the popular single version rehashes, no surprise there. At least I expect we'll get new mixes for the Rio live material, since I highly doubt they'll rehash the original 1985 mix used on the VHS & Laserdisc releases - those were just dreadful and overstuffed with fake audience overdubbing!

A KIND OF MAGIC - BONUS EP
1 A Kind Of Magic (Highlander Version) [Roger Taylor]
2 One Vision (Single Version) [Queen]
3 Pain Is So Close To Pleasure (Single Remix) [Freddie Mercury & John Deacon]
4 Forever (Piano Version) [Brian May]
5 A Kind Of Vision (Demo, August 1985) [Roger Taylor]
6 One Vision (Live at Wembley Stadium, July 11th 1986) [Queen]
7 Friends Will Be Friends Will Be Friends [Freddie Mercury & John Deacon]


On par with the Works Bonus EP. I wonder if the Highlander Version of AKOM will be the movie-length version, or the full version as heard on the LAW bonus DVD?

THE MIRACLE - BONUS EP
1 I Want It All (Single Version) [Queen]
2 Hang On In There (B-Side) [Queen]
3 Hijack My Heart (B-Side) [Queen]
4 Stealin’ (B-Side) [Queen]
5 Chinese Torture (Instrumental) [Queen]
6 The Invisible Man (12” Version) [Queen]


The LEAST exciting of the bunch, by far! They have TONS of demos and alternative versions from the Miracle sessions, and not even one clearly was considered as a bonus. What a waste.


INNUENDO - BONUS EP
1 I Can’t Live With You (1997 Rocks Retake) [Queen]
2 Lost Opportunity (B-Side) [Queen]
3 Ride The Wild Wind (Early Version with Guide Vocal) [Queen]
4 I’m Going Slightly Mad (Mad Mix) [Queen]
5 Headlong (Embryo with Guide Vocal) [Queen]


Somewhat more interesting than the previous three! I hope they've remastered the ICLWY 1997 Retake to reduce the awful 'loudness war' compression it suffered with on Queen Rocks!
'Mad Mix'? I wonder if this is an alternative remix, and not a code name for 'instrumental mix'. Also pondering if the Headlong embryo is similar to the bass/drum demo we've previously heard with Freddie and Brian on chief guide vocals?

MADE IN HEAVEN - BONUS EP
1 Heaven For Everyone (Single Version) [Roger Taylor]
2 It’s A Beautiful Day (B-Side Version) [Queen]
3 My Life Has Been Saved (1989 B-Side Version) [Queen]
4 I Was Born To Love You (Vocal & Piano Version) [Freddie Mercury]
5 Rock In Rio Blues (Live B-Side) [Queen]
6 A Winter’s Tale (Cosy Fireside Mix) [Freddie Mercury]


Nice that they're throwing in the b-side version of IABD, didn't expect that. That one was a kicking good mix!
IWBTLY Vocal & Piano?? Better not be the same version they used on the FM Solo Boxset!


Overall, I'm less enthralled with this batch than the last one. Some nice bits of course, but not enough!

1. I was expecting Rock in Rio Blues to appear on The Works. 
2. I wonder if they'll be using the other night version of It's a Hard Life as Freddie forgets the lyrics in the laserdisc version.
3. I'm glad that A Kind of Magic and The Miracle will be release without the bonus tracks being placed on the same disc. 
4. The Miracle bonus is dissapointing

fucking typical pathetic, no inclusion of the my life has been saved original (unless you have the scandal b-side your fucked) oh no wait the shuved it on Made In Heaven
The Invisible Man 12" inch the same version on the original cd of the mircale in 1989 - the worst remix of any of them as breakthru and scandal were much better & hang on in there too

I am so glad i havent wasted money on this extremely poor thought of re-issues

Jeepers. The usual mix, I guess, but just using less interesting source material I guess.

A real shame about The Miracle. Why the hell didn't they just stick MLHBS '89 on there? I am actually holding my head in my hands here.

It was thrown onto the Made In Heaven bonus EP, if you would have looked closely enough

I'm vaguely impressed that they've somehow managed to make them less interesting than the first batch.

The thing that gets me is that they employ an archivist for exactly these types of projects!! Now presumably he/she wouldn't have suggested half that garbage? My guess is that their suggestions are submitted, and it comes back with black lines through it.

Very disappointed. ...though not completely surprised.

However, I do like My Life Has Been Saved being included on the Made In Heaven set rather than The Miracle. So if people buy it that haven't heard the original, they can directly compare it to the soulless synthfest that it eventually turned into. Perfect.

These bonus tracks or Deep Cuts 3...

I was really hoping for demos such as Dog With A Bone, Stealin' (12 minutes version), I Guess We're Falling Out etc. But QP did it again, folks!

The Miracle sessions were by the far their most productive period and yet they stick to the same old songs. For reference: the Singles Collection already included Hijack My Heart, Hang On In There, Stealin' and My Life Has Been Saved (the original). I don't think they have remastered these songs even further.

Really dissappointing.

some of The Miracle and AKOM 'bonus' tracks were actually on the original CD issues of these albums, so aren't bonuses at all.  I'm sure that the vocal and piano take of IWBTLY will be the same as the one on the Freddie box set, and a lot of the other tracks are very common already, having been issued on the SIngles box sets, Greatest Hits albums etc..  Putting single versions on like they did with Fat Bottomed Girls, and are doing with I Want To Break Free and One Vision just really takes the piss.

What a disappointment.Almost everything has been officially released before with the exception of about 3 or 4 tracks.
Are they really hoping longterm fans who have spent hundreds of pounds over the years are gonna spend out on 4 albums they already have probably more than once just to get 3 or 4 new tracks.I love Queen and always will but with each release my heart sinks cos theres so much unseen/unheard material they must have but still wont let us hear.We all know the old archived stuff isnt gonna be perfect but Im sure the fans would rather hear an under par song that wasnt considered good enough originally to be on an album at the time than keep getting re-re-re-re-released stuff.
