I know the song is from the Hot-Space sessions, but Freddie's voice sounds to me like its an '91 recording from the last sessions.

Exactly. The song "sounds" like one of those in the Hot Space era (in terms of style), but it wasn`t written back then.


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.

Curse the Greatest Hits III booklet!

'You Don't Fool Me' was recorded between January and April (May?) 1991, but the booklet for Greatest Hits III says that the sound harks back to the Hot Space sessions, so that insinuates the song was started in 1982 but remained incomplete until 1991/1995.

It was not.

Whoever wrote the booklet liners should be smacked with a live opposum.

I never actually thought it was from the Hot Space sessions. What I understood from the liner notes in the booklet of GH3 is that the song was like a revisiting of the Hot Space era, because it kind of make you remember it.
Anyway, I just recently checked the meaning of the phrase "hark back" since English is not my native language.

hark_back, return, come_back, recall
go back to something earlier; "This harks back to a previous remark of his"

Even after reading it I don't really get the idea that YDFM has something to do with Hot Space other than having a similar rythm and sound. But that's the way I understood it in the first place.

I don't see where it's that difficult to understand, really.

Don't know what's all the fuss about either- it was plain obvious from the begining that YDFM isn't from 'Hot Space' session, it's just in similiar to this album style...

Didn't Brian mention recently on his website that the song was indeed recorded in 1991.

Yes, Yes he did. A little research never killed anyone (that I know of). ;)

I seem to recall ages ago (1999) when I was a member of alt.music.queen, there would be periodic posts of people marvelling over this wonderful Hot Space outtake, and when asked where they heard this bit of information, the general response would be, "Greatest Hits III told us so".

*shrug* I dunno, the OP mentioned himself (herself?) that he (she) KNEW the song was recorded during Hot Space, so...

*shrugs again*

Ow, my shoulder.

That's exactly what I understood too...

Here we go again.

'The sound harks back..' doesn't mean the song comes from the Hot Space sessions.

Look up your english dictionaries!

I hope you're not referring to me, because I actually explained it fairly well when I wrote my initial post.

Freddie's voice definitely sounds post-Innuendo. The only (released) tracks Freddie sang in mid-91 were YDFM, A Winter's Tale, and Mother Love. Perhaps there were more, but it's doubtful.
