Hi,


Just posting a topic to see what kind of acetates there out there. I own about 25 of Queen and some solo ones.

Which ones are know (I am compiling a list of them for record collector)

So what I need to know :

- Name of the manufacturer ( e.g. abbey road, trident, townhouse)
- Content and lenght of the tracks
- Does the content differs from the official releases
- Date of the production
- Specific remarks...
- If possible a picture of the item


I will make my sum up this week ! With pictures.

I've got a test pressing of Hot Space, but I don't know whether it contains the alternate Cool Cat, since I've never played it :P

It could just be Bicycle Race combined with Fat Bottomed Girls. The track times line up - 3:01 and 4:16 with a two second break in between.

This sounds like a ruse; a line thrown in the water with a littl ebait on the end in the hope that a certain someone from North Of The Border will photograph 'the most prized'......

Doubt it.

No it's not ! Because of :

1 I want to know which acetates are out there - for me as a collector. Acetates are barely noticed in the discographies , and there is little information about it... Just want to make a total picture.

2 I am 10000% sure the Hangman does not excist! So I don;t need any proof or a fake picture spoiling this topic with this kind of nonsence ! The thing does not excist I am sure about this !

Keep watching a very very very exciting Acetate will be shown here within days !

Ha : yes I am 10000% sure !! Do you know what I have at home !? I gues the 2nd biggest Queen collection in the world ?Especially when it comes to unreleased formats like Rainbow, D1 and D2 tapes reel to Reel tapes ... I have them lots of them how many do you own ? Do you have contact at the Queen office ? Ha I gues not! Did you ask Brian about Hangman or Jim Beach ? Ha I gues not... Ha : did you know the real collectors aren't here on Queenzone ? I gues not : what do you have to offer , nothing special : I GUES !!

Strange reactions here ! STICK TO THE TOPIC UPLOAD ACETATES OR GIVE INFO ABOUT THEM ! don;t waist your greece euro's overhere by telling nothing ...

Having Brian and Jim as sources for your info is as unreliable as anything else!
