I heard that Greg did in fact play some new demos - among others an instrumental jam which became Coming Soon later. (edited)


I do not want any google ads here.

Okey doky. They were mostly backing tracks and early versions off the top of my head I can think of Great King Rat, Brighton Rock and a very early version of Coming Soon which didn't sound anything like it. The next DVD will be Milton Keynes, followed by Houston '77 (only joking).

And finally it looks like a Made In Heaven type album will be released using Freddie vocals that no-one has ever heard before.

Seriously, vocals that we have never heard before? that begs the question why didn't they use them the first time round instead of going back to Freddie's solo material.

Still if that's the case, or in fact any new studio album comes out I'm happy!

That's what I heard. I seem to remember Fight From The Inside with a different Roger vocal playing as well. The new video for the I Was Born to Love you Japanese version played as well, featuring a band peformance from Wembley 86 and Freddie orginal video for the song cut and pasted DoRo style by Simon Lupton to be fair he only had a day to do it. This will be on Greatest Flix III.

On a more personal note I was disappointed by lack of solo videos playing during the day on the big screen and hearing Crazy Little Thing Called Love 15-20 times on the trot for the Rock and Roll Dancing instruction. A bit more thought would have enabled someone to alternate with Man On The Prowl or just play some proper rock and roll like Little Richard. Not play the same song over and over again it drove me up the wall. And someone turn the heating on in Lunars it was fucking freezing in there all weekend.

If there will be new MiH kind of songs, I think Brian or Roger will play the bass, or maybe they'll ask Neil Murray?

"that begs the question why didn't they use them the first time round instead of going back to Freddie's solo material."

Does it? How many tracks did they use for the MIH album that had been demos? IABD and LML. The others were tracks from Fred in the last sessions and of course the tracks that were made into Queen versions.
The reason for the Fred solo stuff being turned into solo versions were because of Brian's love of those songs. And because they fit in with the MIH album.

Read his latest interviews and you'll see that. The other tracks go without saying.

Peace,
Adam.

Heaven For Everyone was a Queen demo before the cross recorded it

the only "new" songs from MiH are:

You don't fool me
Mother love
Winters Tale

the other songs were or unused Queen songs, or re-recordings of solo songs.

It's a Beautiful Day:
Re-recording of a 1980 demo

Made in Heaven:
Re-recording of a solo song

Let me Live:
Re-recording of a song from 1983, Dunno how much was done then, and after the Innuendo sessions. (I'm talking about the freddie vocals here)

My Life has been Saved:
Re-recording of the B-side recorded in 1989

I Was Born to Love You:
Re-recording of a solo song

Heaven For Everyone:
Re-recording of a Queen song (1986) and The Cross song (1988?)

Too Much Love will Kill You:
Re-recording of a Queen song (1989) and Brian song (1992)

Well Brians love of the tracks or not it still seems rather odd not to use new material if it was available, and if I remember correctly at the time we were told that was it, nothing else excisted that could be used.

Also until we know what tracks they are taking about it's a bit premature to be saying the other fitted with the MIH album, but I just think much as I love the album I would have been keen to hear a new track with Fred on rather than two versions of It's a beautiful day, and IWBTLY.

Greg Brooks began archiving all the Queen sessions after Made In Heaven, so they now have a better awareness of what is available and what can be used. MIH would have consisted of randomly going through old tapes to find stuff that could be used rather than actually 'knowing'.

Mnay thanks for all the info Banquo. Just one question - what was actually said about this new Made In Heaven-style album? How was it mentioned?

As the next Queen venture, it seems that is the way Brian and Roger are thinking. Although it was mentioned don't expect anything for a few years the WWRY musical remains the driving force.

All the tracks played were spoilt as well by Greg saying 'Property of Queen Productions' every 20 seconds during the songs, this was the only way Jim Beach would allow them to be played.
