Releasing June 30 in Japan.

If you run that through the Altavista/Babelfish translator:

(Use the 'Translate a Web page' option)

We get some rather interesting Queen titles.

Spread Your Wings= Eternal wing
Another One Bites The Dust= To hell road
We Will Rock You= ? Will lock U
I Was Born To Love You= Bone to ?? u (queen ??????)
It's A Hard Life= Eternal oath
And my personal favourite...
I'm Going Slightly Mad= Overture to insanity

Anyway, on a more serious note, it would appear that this is the same original karaoke set, with 'I Was Born To Love You' added to the 2nd disc.

Here's the description:
The original official karaoke due to the performance of the queen! Recording "bone to ?? u", new equipment re-sale! ! Performance & the chorus part of hit tune all the 34 tunes of the queen (there is no vocal) to mix, the fan necessary karaoke CD which is produced! !

Cool! I particularly like Eternal Wing, Eternal Oath and Overture to Insanity. Would make great subtitles!

Looks like it's been delayed slightly until July 14. Probably due to the fact that I alerted Justin to a couple of minor errors on the original release and he passed it on to Toshiba-EMI.

So I apologize to everyone for causing this 2 week delay. It'll be worth it if we get a Queen release without any errors though.. a rare treat.

Re: Forthcoming reply - "What errors did the original have?"

Glad you asked. The volume level of 'Another One Bites The Dust' was way too low compared to other tracks, and the intro to 'Radio Ga Ga' was cut off slightly, an error which strangely enough occurs on the original instrumental version too, if Ron's file was fully authentic.

"if Ron's file was fully authentic"

the instrumental version on my site some time ago was directly taken from the 12" and I didn't do a thing with it except for cleaning it a bit, so yes, its authentic :)

That's cool. I thought there was a chance you had 'cleaned' it by replacing some parts with the karaoke version. LOL. That's what I'd do :-P

no, I clean em differently. I never replace parts with parts from other songs.
