Oh my.
I discovered Borders sells it for $8.99. Yike! I bought mine used off Ebay for $20 because I thought it was "rare" (yeah, right!). I'm having misgivings of the actual "original recordings" themselves because the voice that's definitely not Freddie sounds like Tim Staffell doing a horribly bad imitation of a blues singer.
Does anyone know what country released this and exactly why?? Not listed anywhere on the packaging or disc.

YAY!! I agree totally. Biggest rip-off of any "Queen" album ever released...
(then again, there's all those bloody repackages of Greatest Hits...)

I ignored the reviews on amazon.com and bought this anyway, and it was a complete waste of money. The only somewhat decent sounding tracks are the ones you can already get on In Nuce.

It's a total waste of money, I was stupid enough to buy it (from HMV! even they sell this kind of crap) a few years back when I visited London.. Pure crap.

Why don't people do a simple google search before wasting money on something they don't know? Every site would tell you it's total crap.

I've never thought it was bad. Too many fans above burned?? I don't understand.
It did have rare tracks at the time of release, but because most of them have been released properly and in better quality, this release doesn't mean much now.

But I still think that the straker tracks are very interesting. And not because of Freddie's involvement. I know he only fronted the cash.

Peace,
Adam.

I was given my copy for free, fortunately. No guilt when I threw it away.
