Whilst "official" material is not allowed here, let's face facts:
Unless you email Carlton and complain about the missing second part of the interview, they aren't going to publically make available the download link that we've all heard about.



So, at the risk of getting banned, here is that link.



http://static.queenonline.com/queen-40-years-interview-1977.mp3

Might I also say that it's mp3. Proving once again that substandard is the standard!
Quite frankly I don't care about sharing this link. If they can't be bothered to organise a CD replacement service (It took Universal less than two weeks to organise such a service to Mike Oldfield fans who spotted an error on his last deluxe remaster release, so there's NO excuses Carlton/QPL.....), and simply feel they can fob us off with a shitty mp3 copy, then they can go fuck themselves and I'll happily spread this link for all to see...

Thanks for sharing this, but I can't seem to download it. Is the link still live?

I'm disgusted that Carlton or QOL haven't made this more widely known.

Such a let down as the Queen 40 book is by far the most interesting and quality product we've had from QP in a long time.

Thanks for this Brians wig, 

would have thought that they might have let us return the incomplete disc & then they could send the complete disc, rather than just listening to it Quicktime mp3.

so when they they send out the second batches of book, the new batch has the complete disc, but we who bought it when it was first released don't :-(

David Jones, just copy & paste it from your tempory internet files.


Joyful the sound

==============================

The BBC did an interview with Queen in 1977. The complete interview was split in two parts (tracks) and put on cd you have in your book. Now due to, I guess,  pressing mistakes only the first part of the interview came on the cd... so the second part is missing. Big mistake of course.... and a very expensive one too. Well can't blame QP... they are used to it.

Since no one answered the first time around... Is that both parts of the interview or is it just part 2?

Apologies, but could you please explain what "copy & paste from your temporary internet files" means? Thanks.

When Bowie At The Beeb came out in 2002 it erroniously had the same version of the track Ziggy Stardust twice. EMI sent out a replacement one track disc to those people who requested one. That set up another load of problems as there was no way of storing it in the package. If PQ sent out a correct 2 part disc that people could put in their book and bin the first, chances are that the discs would flood e-bay. I think they've done the right thing - after all, who owns this book and keeps listening to the CD? I got mine out, ripped the interview to my computer and listen to that to avoid ruining the disc.

Your internet browser stores html files, pictures, music and videos into a termporary folder somewhere.  Check your settings.

But this download should just be a matter of right click and "save as."

If it isn't, then you can even play the file in Firefox and do a "save page as" from the file menu.

Thank you, The Real Wizard. I was of course familiar with what temporay internet files are (and what copy and paste means) , but I hadn't heard the phrase "copy and paste from your temporary internet files" used as an instruction for downloading. Cheers.
