Mr Jim Hutton has a couple of fantastic unique items for sale, and a couple of very mundane ones.

Interesting that after a fairly generous inheritance and a book deal, he still, er, "decides to free up some closet space", shall we say.

Anyone like to hazrd a guess at the value of the prize item? I reckon Christies is the place for that one, £10K fairly comfortably.

I wonder what they're asking for the YDFM, TMLWKY and MIH vinyls - since they never were Freddie's stuff anyway... Besides that - I wouldn't give a dime more just 'because it was Freddies' for the, for example, Miracle hologram sleeve....

There's a list here: http://www.brianmay.com/queen/queennews/queennews.html and 'pictures follow shortly'

There's no indication of where to write to make an offer, but since Greg wrote the thing, his address is:
gb@queen-archives.fsnet.co.uk

Hey there fonz, is there anything particularly rare about the two items you've got up there, I've got two copies of LIC on vinyl and one on tape, and the Don't try suicide is just the B-Side of another one bites the dust is it not? I've got that sitting in front of me at the moment.
Still I'd imagine you're right about Mr Hutton's collection :-)


can i go to lunch now?

What are all the white labeled records in the white sleeves?

And what country is Don't Try Suicide from? Here in the US they were using the red Elektra label instead of the old caterpillar one by 1980....

I guess in New Zealand they were still using the caterpillar label. And perhaps the typo makes it unique?

Given that Mr May is known as the most avid collector of all things Queen, how come he hasnt bid for some of the rarer stuff ?

He almost certainly has his own (pristine) copies of most of it, except the signed Barca album, which I can't see him being particularly keen on. Freddie's autograph couldn't mean less to him, I'd have thought.

regarding Brian's collection... can you still call it collecting when it's possible for him to get nearly everything? he's so close to all sources. all he has to do is ask the people "hey can you keep me one or two copies of that record when it's miss pressed or when it's different?"

I know what you mean Ron, but if he accumulates a load of stuff and puts it in a room, what other term can we use?

I agree he hasn't collected it in the same way, but he comes from the same mentality as you and I, so I'm not going to knock him for it.

He might collect, but it's obvious he doesn't listen to the stuff otherwise they might have slightly better quality control ("Rocks" for example)

Hey Polar bear.

Well, Live In Concert was a New Zealand-only release (well, that one was)...it's just that my two copies both have different labels on them (one white, one black and red).

And the typo on 'Don't Try Suicide' is amusing...
