......Also: I said, I would give the stuff to you - for what I paid for it. No profit margin. That is a good deal.

If a collector buys a Picasso or a Rembrandt, (or even a Disney or Simpson's cell) does that make them a selfish greedy individual?

So lets see - I purchase a Queen item (say an acetate) so I can hear it. (And I am not the only one in this 'zone who does so), So I can enjoy it. Lets say that cost me around £2-300. I deny no-one the same priviledge - if they repay me my outlying costs. I will certainly NOT pass it on for free, but I have in the past.....


I must say that I agree to Mr. Stuart point of view. Although it affects my innate desesperation to hear unleashed material.

I bought a new car and people doesn't go stopping me on streets to take them a ride for free. So simple this is.

I think it would be good if he posts his material and the money he pretends for it. Personally, I'm not interested in tapes. I'd be happy with just 128kbps mp3. I'm not interested in being the exclusive owner of the track, so I'd like to buy it altogether and spread it to everyone interested.

Well, that's all. I think this option would make everybody happy. Stuart (and/or others collectors) will recover part of the invested money an will keep the the tapes, and the Queen community would have some fresh air after a long time.

Well, ready to hear suggestions, comments, variations, lists....

I think part of the value of a collection is how much does it worth. If the track - e.g. Hangman studio version - is already owned in mp3 format, I think the acetate or cassette or whatever would cost less, hence it`s not a good deal for the one who has it.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

How can you say that before putting any price?

Because it`s about the value of a collection. I don`t collect anything - except for data - but I guess that the feeling of having something nobody else does, worths more than the euro you could receive for sacrificing that

Does JSS have a list of what he is willing to sell and for how much?

I highly doubt he's willing to sell anything.

Collectors...those in it for the investment, collect OBJECTS...not songs, per se. I used to be a collector and I purchased items for the uniqueness/rarity of the actual object...a picture disk, colored vinyl, out of print CD, etc.

I don't think the spread of the audio from these objects would really lessen the value of the objects themselves.

But that's just my opinion, and, of course, a collector is free to do with their collection whatever they want.

Oh you'd buy anything you could get your hands on. You'd even buy your own hands.

C'mon, let's be realistic. Let's assume the price of the acetate is 2000 pounds. To be honest, I love Hangman but for the MP3 of the studio version I wouldn't pay more than 5 pounds. Can you find 399 other people?

I would pay 10 euros for a Hangman mp3.

15 down, 2985 to go ;-)

The value of Freddie's 1985 material went down dramatically the day the Solo COllection came out.

PG you're right. The value decreases as are less interest in obtaining the material. Simple rules of markets.
