Both with SHA and Queen II, you list certain "Lammey" tracks, which if memory serves, refers to Bart Lammey's fan remixes.

Is that true, and if so, why list them? Is there an official tie I don't see?

is this:

Side One: (Side White)
All tracks unsegued/seperated

a Sheer Heart Attack or a Queen II acetate? It's been included in the Sheer Heart Attack post, yet I've only ever heard side 1 of Queen II called "Side White".

Acetate: Sheer Heart Attack. (I wrote this and II at the same time).

Remixes: Nothing official I just liked them.

Also, wouldn't 'I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside' be a part of the Queen II sessions, as it was in the outro of Seven Seas Of Rhye?

Does anybody remember what was the original title of Brighton Rock? It was Rock but the city wasn't Brighton. Damn, my memory...

Great work, John.
I´m afraid I missed the "Ulimate Collection" of the first album. Has it been posted yet? If so please post me a link.
Many thanx in advance!


I´ll eat them whole before I´m done!

I don't remember ever seeing "Brighton Fuck" as a working/alternative title for BR.

Anyway, over to our favourite archivist for your answer Martin:

Greg Brooks (2002): "Happy Little Fuck was the working title of this song. It was further referred to as Happy Little Day, Blackpool Rock, Bognor Ballad, Southend Sea Scout, Skiffle Rock and Herne Bay. Session engineer Mike Stone is the likely culprit of some of the titles, though like most other bands, Queen frequently employed working titles during the song development process."

The album of effects actually wasn`t from EMI, was from Elektra. I should write something about which parts were done were, since I`m very interested in production right now. I`ll do it as soon as I get the facts together


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.

Great, John! Wonderful research work! It seems like only very few songs have just one known version (Someday One Day etc.). I can very hardly wait for next parts!

Wasn't that within the *highly informative* (snigger) Record Collector article?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this release is a compilation of the first and second night (19th & 20th Nov.). 3 Songs can be found in unedited form, namely 'son & daughter', 'stone cold crazy' and 'liar'. They appear for instance on The Ultimate Collection II and are wrongly labeled as Adelaide '76.
I can't confirm this, but I read somewhere (again ;-) ), that the video was shot during the second night and the sound is from both nights. If this is true, then the unedited songs are from the 19th Nov. as before 'stone cold crazy', there's no speech from Freddie about "the present from the Devil himself".
Someone can confirm this?

Cheers,
Tim

"Great, John! Wonderful research work! It seems like only very few songs have just one known version (Someday One Day etc.). I can very hardly wait for next parts! "

Because John doesn't list them, it doesn't mean there is no alternate version of those songs. It means John doesn't have an alternate version. Correct me if i'm wrong john..

"...have just one KNOWN version...".
I guess all songs have been transformed over the recording session, so there are thousands of versions, but not all of their first versions have been recorded.

I would like to add the infamous In The Lap Of The Gods from Hollywood Record's first pressing of SHA, as it does not seem to be a transfer error but a different master. Also, I wonder why the KEWB version of Killer Queen is included in the above list while other 'radio perfomances' of tracks from the same album are not. I am not criticizing. I just suppose that, as with the edits, you had your reasons. By the way, I can send you a copy of the full fanfarre stuff if you like me to.

About Live at Rainbow: I have and old reel of the original 20-minute (?) cinema footage. It has mono audio. Unfortunately, I haven't played it yet as I cannot find the right equipment nor a company to transfer it to DVD without stepping on VHS. Anyway, I wonder if anybody has any info about that edit of the concert.

Wilki: "By the way, I can send you a copy of the full fanfarre stuff if you like me to".

Would that be possible and we could link it here (or somewhere else).

If you have the full copy, where does it come from?

I will make space and upload it soon to my (forthcoming) site.

I have borrowed this track a long time ago from a friend who was a Frank Zappa collector. Apparently, FZ used the same stuff (not quite the same part though) in one of his tracks - and my friend had the original vinyl from where it came
(unfortunately, I cannot find my notes about this particular LP - it seems that I am getting older ;-).

I also have the Zappa track (I do not recall its title either - I AM getting older, see?) if somebody wants it.

is the Soundcheck (from the Uris Theatre show) actually from Oxford '73? or is it just a similar soundcheck, or is Oxford fake?
