I know a lot of you own the FM Solo Collection Boxset and have probably listened to the ten CDs packed in with the gorgeous book. Question: which one is your favourite, and why?
Mine changes all the time. I've gotten into the Montserrat Caballe sessions and can't stop playing it! I can see why Freddie was so mesmerised with her voice -- it's so perfect and pure. She's a very talented singer and it was a blessing she and Freddie collaborated on the Barcelona album. I'm sure had circumstances been different and Freddie was still alive and healthy, he would have written an opera for her (with a part for him too, of course!).

I like the Mr. Bad Guy sessions, for unreleased gems like New York and Love Makin' Love. Even Gazelle is catchy!

"...especially how can i go on/guide me home at the moment."

I know I'm going to start bawling now!! I have to avoid both of those songs...from the first three chords, I turn into a weeping puddle on the floor. I think both are the most moving songs he ever wrote!

YAY!! Nice responses from everyone!
How about the David Wigg interviews? I love hearing Freddie speak in a relaxed tone, not rushed like he did with the Torpedo Twins when they were doing all those films and interviews.

Instrumentals, and Barcelona sessions. I really give shit about those crappy pop songs :P let alone the stuff that didn't end on the album
