Something else I just noticed (I finally bought Jazz on CD):

FBG usually starts with "Ohhhh...you're gonna take me home tonight." But today I just noticed the Hollyweird remix starts out with "Ohhhh...WON'T you take me home tonight."

I used to think the vocals were just mixed differently on the two, but I guess they're actually two different takes....

Wow am I a loser or what? :)

I noticed that too. Always remember it's a "remix", not the original version, blame the "remixer" for the error (probably not a Queen fan either!).

The remix also has some additional stuff at the end "Them dirty ladies..." etc. Too bad they had to remix it, instead of including just the original alternate take.

This isn't an 'error'. It's an attempt to make an otherwise pointless remix as different as possible by using some alternate bits here and there.

And actually this intro was done by simply using the chorus version of these lyrics in place of the original intro vocals.

Access to the multi-tracks may have enabled this person to find some additional material which wasn't included in the original mix but might actually be from the same take, not necessarily a completely different one.

Pointless remix EXACTLY! I could never understand why Hollywood Records "remastered" the Queen catalog and released it with dull soulless BORING remixes (scratchy-scratchy). The first time I heard the hip-hop version of Bicycle Race I could have done projectile vomiting at three paces! EWWWWW! They certainly whizzed on a Picasso. No justice done there!

I do not mind the FBG remix. To my ears, it is one of the better remixes from the Hollywood '91 issues. Most of the remixes are bad and seem like an opportunity lost. Instead of a good remix that would take advantage of the fidelity available with a cd and bring in more bass, drums, guitar, etc... the remixes seem like a desperate attempt to give Queen some "street credibility" and score with the hip-hop crowd. Why not more b-sides instead of remixes?

Early reports indicated that:

A) They had planned on doing a box set.

B) A disco/dance compilation was to be released.

So things were probably left off so they'd be special to these releases which never ended up happening.

Source: Record Collector January 1992:

"From the outset, Hollywood said they intended to issue a series of compilations, among them a disco set, which could explain why they did not include the extended mixes of "Backchat, "Staying Power", Pain Is So Close To Pleasure" and "Breakthru" on their respective albums. They also intend to produce their own Queen boxed set, but at present have no track details or date."
