Looks interesting. But the seller has a HUGE list of neutral and negative points.
I see that he's made the profile private so no-one can read the points made. Shifty?

Peace,
Adam.

Looks that way...

I've had mine since June and got it off Ebay (Deals At Disney). It was shrinkwrapped and only $25 + $4.95 shipping/handling. $35 is still a monster deal, because I've seen people fight over used copies on Ebay and prices soaring over $100!
(One thing I have in my collection was a promotional tool of the boxset -- the CD of the 25th anniversary of the song Keep Yourself Alive. Five different versions are on the CD including the long-lost "first version" which is awesome!)

I can't help but want to buy it. I think I'll give it a try...I may probably get ripped off in the ordeal, but it's well worth it.

Jeffrey, the "long-lost" version is a little heavier and has slightly different lyrics. I like the overdubbed echo effects of Roger's drums on this one.
Here's what it says in the booklet:
"Here is a collector's edition sampler of all versions, including the rediscovered original version, of Queen's first single "Keep Yourself Alive". This sampler will be distributed ro Rock, Classic Rock and Active Rock radio this November (1995) to commemorate Queen's 25th anniversary in the US."
Also: "Queen Week takes place December 7-13 on VH1. The week includes the premiere of the brand-new 'Queen Legends' program on December 7."
The catalog number on the Hollywood Records CD is PRCD 11032-2.

No, no comparison to that piece of rubbish at all! (LOL) This version has never been released to the public, just to the radio stations. Though it's close to the BBC version as far as lyrics go!

All of the Hollywood Records "extras"! I am a Queen snob in that respect because I hate the "remixed" versions and the so-called "rare" tracks that were added on to the reissued material aren't actually all that rare!!. I much prefer the original releases on the original labels (domestic and import). The absolute worst was on GHIII, the Wyclef Jean thing. Pass the barf bag!! (LOL)

Jeffrey, you must be a newer Queen fan because the early ones you mentioned have been floating around for many years now. A lot of the "rare" tracks were B-sides to UK and US singles or on much-circulated bootlegs (which so many of us diehard fans possess and wouldn't live without!). I will give Hollywood a kudo for making them public at long last, but I still won't forgive them for the remixes or the content on the Greatest Hits albums. They're horrible! The edited songs are so bad. Freddie would be very angry about that if he were alive to see/hear them (thank God he doesn't know).
Funny how Capitol Records (USA) never did that to any of the Beatles' many hits compilations (including last year's "1"). Why Hollywood chose to edit some of the Queen songs for content is beyond me! Thank God they left Bo Rhap alone -- that truly would have been an unpardonable sin if they'd done something to that!
