Hi
This is my first post so please excuse me if I have selected the wrong thread.

Back in 1995 i purchased the 'Made in Heaven' CD on release day, only to find it was a misprint and contained what i believe to be  a live recording of Blur at radio three?

The packaging & artwork are correct for the CD but the audio is wrong. Since I purchased the CD it has just sat in my collection and never been played since until I found it again today when sorting through my old CD's.

Any advice on this would be most helpful as I am not a collector and want to avoid placing it on ebay as I would rather it belong to true Queen collector and someone who would appreciate it as part of their collection.

Any background information on how many of these were printed, and any guide to pricing would be most appreciated.

Many thanks
Ian

Wow!

Since I purchased the CD it has just sat in my collection and never been played since until I found it again today when sorting through my old CD's.

And mine HAS Made In Heaven on it.

Well, I am sure you'll find some idiot that'll buy it, but if you ask me should be worth less than a non-faulty copy of Made in Heaven.

Agreed.


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

A similar mistake: I have a U.S. HR promo CD for Heaven for Everyone that actually plays Made In Heaven (the song).
I had heard about the Blur CD mistake but I guess that, like with everything else, it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. I personally don't find it that interesting.

I also have a Queen + Wyclef Jean CD single that has "QUENN"  printed on the CD label instead of Queen.
