John, I'm not sure if you know about this, but there was a extended version of "We Will Rock You" video from Live Aid broadcast on VH2 last Saturday (30th October). Not sure if its official or not but all it consisted of was the performance up to the guitar solo, but instead of ending there it went back to the start of the performance. The visuals then changed to instead of being Queen, it showed every other band that was on both the UK and USA bills that day.

Pretty useless, I know, but I just thought I'd tell you.

Mr Mercury: Thanks. Bit of a curio. Think I will also lump that in with the "Live Aid bit" when it comes up - but you may need to remind me though!

Are you sure that Trent Reznor did an unreleased remix of "Get Down, Make Love"?

The only version I know is the cover version which he recorded with his band Nine Inch Nails (4:17, B-side of the single "Sin", 1990). It includes a few samples from Queen's GDML and WWRY.

M: "...Trent Reznor did an unreleased remix of "Get Down, Make Love"?

That is correct. The Nine Inch Nails cover version WILL appear under the appropriate year (1989).

Cover Artists: Nine-Inch Nails – Sin
UK CDs Halo Four CID 508
Get Down Make Love


Remember he did other Queen mixes also, so this is not a unique occurarance.

M: - so classic piece of German New Wave Cinema with Peter Lorre - or Pop Music?

I'll try my best John. And no unfortunately I didnt record it - I thought it was just going to be the straight performance clip.

Anyway keep up the good work!!

Lester: Day At The Races.

http://www.queenzone.com/queenzone/forumnew/forum_topic_view.aspx?Q=413829

Sorry but what happened to - Lester: Quickdraw McGraw, that's what they call me -lol!!!

PS: "Back-issues" can be found under "Search" just punch in "Ultimate Collection".

PPS: It was Lester's idea that I use that title so these items could be found easier using the search facility. Glad I took your advice mate!!!

PPPS: So if YOUR quickdraw - who does that make me???

What's most embarrassing is that I read that one! How could I have forgotten?! Hasn't been my day, I must admit.

Bah, I'm an oldie - I should know where everything is!

PPS: It was Lester's idea that I use that title so these items could be found easier using the search facility. Glad I took your advice mate!!!


It was? Hmm, I'm more creative than I give myself credit!

PPPS: So iy YOUR quickdraw - who does that make me???


The Knowledgable One, I'll wager. Or you can always ask iGSM, as he comes up with better names. You don't think I'd go by the name Dr Incontinence, do ya!

Back on topic:
'Batteries Not Included', eh? Who wrote that one?

John, did you forget all about the WWRY Sun freebie CD?

Also, what about the pepsi promotional Enhanced CD of the Britney, Beyonce And Pink version of WWRY, which, according to the blurb, says that Brian did both Bass and lead guitars, Roger did the drums and backing vocals was supplied by Queen (from the original version), Suzie Webb and Zoe Nicholas?

This was part of a 7 track CD which also included the TV advert and a behind the scenes of the advert.

Mr. Mercury: John, did you forget all about the WWRY Sun freebie CD?

No - but I thought we had settled this. No coloured vinyls, pic discs or fan remixes - just the music only.

As the "Sun" frebbie was a bad (half) edit of the BBC version - in effect if you own the full BBC you have the "Sun" version also.

The question is should this edit be included in it's own right? I guessed no - but I suppose it could be argued - it should. (I mean it is a legitimate release). Those WITHOUT the "Sun" disc are not really missing anything - are they? That's why it was consciously omitted.

Also, what about the pepsi promotional Enhanced CD of the Britney, Beyonce And Pink version of WWRY...

Good question - Again, I was going to put this under the 2004 section - but it could as easily fit in here I guess. (BTW - you can now obtain this CD as a non-promo item).

Sometimes with these sort of misc tracks - it is possible to fit them into more than one category - but I personally think that a 2004 section would be a more logical place to include these.

However, I do appreciate the contribution, and I well accept that I may be wrong on this one.

I also think that it doesn't really matter if I am right or wrong - providing the track IS covered SOMEWHERE, and it IS catalogued, and I assure that it will be mentioned at a later stage.

I hope this does not create some sort of confussion, or unholy war! What do you think?

To be fair - I don't suppose it would do any harm to catalogue the track twice - after all two mentions are better than none.

But a good thought-provoking call though!

Lester: Batteries Not Included. It was either a John Deacon, or a Brian May track. I honestly think it was one of John's though.

Spoiler alert: Remember, this may be a working title rather than an actual track, but I can't think what other John Deacon track from this period this title resembles!

Never heard of an edit of Spread Your Wings... is it just an early fade out like the video version? Also, I'm sure the Reznor mix of SYW is very interesting.

I think you answered this a long time ago, John, but do you know which version of WWRY came first: slow or fast?

So no other versions of Who Needs You? Someone mentioned a reggae-like retake. Which would have been too cool.

Err... What's about Hollywood Records remaster's error version of 'It's Late'?

Serry: See my above replies.

Do you think "...Hollywood Records remaster's error of 'It's Late'?" warrants another inclusion? Is it really that different from the "original"?

In the "Sheer Heart Attack" thread it was noted that "In The Lap Of The Gods" (US Hollywood SHA: US 1991 Hollywood HR-61036-246206 2) was indeed an Alternative Master Version and not just another edit/error mistake. (Although I have the disc - I have NOT done the bench test yet to personally confirm this - but I trust the source).

Therefore, it is one of those grey areas. BUT, I am open to suggestion, and if you guys want the remastering errors included - then I can include them.
