Someone kindly uploaded this for me a while back and I got all the tracks except for the back end of The Show Must Go On - is it the same as the album version?

Somebdoy also said that the fan club still had some left. Anyone know if this is stil true and if so how much they are and if you have to be a member to get one?

Cheers!

Wish I'd known I could get it from the FC for $28 before I spent $100 on Box of Tricks just to get that :-P

I assumed they meant fan club:

http://www.queenworld.com/

Or would it be available by request at the www.queenonline.com e-shop?

I've got the Box of Tricks but also got an extra one off Ebay. You may want to try there and have some luck, the disc really sounds excellent!

Except IWTBF was recorded a little too slow :-P I mentioned this before.. by matching up parts of different versions I determined that the Hollywood "Works" bonus track at 7:12 is correct and The 12" Collection at 7:19 is a little slow.

Jacky just emailed me that the fan club no longer has any available, so that's out.

So, as Lisa suggested, Ebay is probably your best bet. That's where I got Box of Tricks where it originates from, and I've also seen it listed separately..

But beware, there is some guy who frequently lists "The 12 inch Singles Collection" but I strongly suspect it's not the original. He uses a picture of album covers from Queenonline and lists copies constantly, plus his feedback suggests that he sells a lot of CD-Rs, so I'd bet that's what it is.

Righty-o I'll keep me eye out there then! Cheers! Still have the mp3s to enjoy!

Thanks for your help!
