Unreleased track added, but I don't know what it is as more than about 6 people are accessing queenonline.

FFS.

Now The Miracle EP is more like Deluxe. Some good news though.

I'm undecided about this. Definitely nice, but now some of the discs are reaching 7 tracks it makes the earlier 5 track ones look a bit shit. And of course, it doesn't address the other issues.

The Miracle CD hasnt really got 7 bonus tracks as 3 of the tracks were on the original CD anyway.

Has QP heard the bell ring? This is really what I meant. Too bad it's only on the miracle EP and not on Innuendo, MIH and others. Now QP will satisfy a lot more people. I think I buy The Miracle. Thank you for listening QP

They've only added one track, it's the same thing with something new. C'mon, "Chinese torture" is already an instrumental!!

This ain't goods news.

Invisible man (with guide vocal). Could it be the short demo which we all have where almost at the end Freddie does an Elvis imitation? I believe it's almost 1:30 min. long.

Aaah, bring us finally "Dog With A Bone"!!! Great track recorded for hardcore fans, so why isn't it on Bonus EP?!

The extra track has been added because it was left off the original press release and was just waiting for clearance, that's all. The band and the guys who compile this stuff are happy with what is on this new set of bonus EP's, not everyone will be, but all the inclusions are right for each CD. As I have said before, this is not an Anthology release or a bonus disc of rare demos and un-released tracks, but an extra disc to include anything that is relevant from the time, ie, the 'B' sides and the live tracks.

So why no Dozen Red Roses or Blurred vision on A Kind Of Magic? Queen didnt do many non-album B-sides so why were they deemed not relevant for that bonus EP

GT, it will be great if you can tell us if there's going to be an Anthology or a Box-set of rare stuff. So we can be quiet and happy waiting for it ;)

If this is Roger's guide vocal, then I'll be happy as a pig in shit.

Yeah me too. Let's hope it's not the same version we've had for years (with the Elvis-like bridge before the 'never had a real good friend' verse). Ah well, if it's a full version of that early take it'd still be cool. I hope it's Roger though :D

What I'd really like is that demo of The Invisible Man that has the brief segment that sounds like Vegas/Elvis - right before Freddie sings the line "Never had a real good friend - not a boy or a girl".

Anyone else heard that?  It's pretty cool.  I wish they had left it in.

Oh my fucking god.

The 'guys' who compiled these - the work experience boys in the Island office I suppose?

Seriously GT. Don't lick arse - make a stand and tell your paymaster how it should be done. We are all very unhappy with the incomplete nature of this batch and on the whole, Queen are left with a poor legacy. If you are any sort of fan, you will know what we're talking about.
