I picked up an 8 track remix 12" by Rick Rubin trashing We Will Rock You just last week
which has a great accapella version I would love to mix myself!
Was this an official US record or was it just a promo? I couldn't find any info
on this forum, hence my post.

Actually the promo is official :)

There's also was commercial CD-release with 5 tracks (WWRY Clap A Capella, Effects A Capella and Effects Instrumental were omitted from CD version).

BASIC Beats sampler promo CD/12" WWRY/AOBTD promo also contains slightly extended version of Rick Rubin Ruined Remix.

Rubin's stuff is all EFF'd up with effects and noise... if you want to do a great remix of WWRY, try to get your hands on the audio stems from Rock Band 3... separated tracks and clean as a whistle...

thanks for the fan mix - a bit dancey for my tastes but I appreciate hearing it.
I am planning on doing a Queen mix of my own on my radio show before Xmas
so will keep you lot informed as and when but it is unlikely to feature anything
you've not hear before - probably just not in the order I will plan it, I know my stuff though
yet will probably not stray far beyond the Flash s/t...

still to hear a really good remix of WWRY. I liked the live version where there was a guitar and bass which mimic the beat at the start. like to hear a studio version of  that.
