I don't know if this has already been posted, but I was at Hollywood Record's website, and I noticed that it mentioned a 25th annerversary celebration box set, The Crown Jewels. Albums included: "Queen," "Queen II," "Sheer Heart Attack," "A Night at the Opera," "A Day at the Races," "News of the World," "Jazz," and "The Game." I have no idea how long this has been offered or where and how to purchase it. I found it here: http://www.hollywoodrecords.go.com/queen/site.html
If anyone has any helpful information, I would be very appreciative. Thanks.

It was released in 1998. Much better sound than the 1991 Hollywood Remasters.
The book is a bit lame. It promises unseen photos which aren't included. It also misses a couple pictures that were originally in the albums.
The Game cover is different. Although it is the same picture they used for the recent DVD release. Was this a USA only album cover??
As for buying it, I still see it in stores in Canada. Ebay is probably your best bet price wise.

Yeah, I bought it on E-bay a few weeks ago for $35.00 brand new. I love it! Welcome to Qz by the way! :D

Funny how Hollywood (and Deals At Disney) suddenly found a warehouse-full of Queen Jewels Boxsets this time last year, and they're still selling like hotcakes on Ebay!
So much for a "rarity"! *snicker*
