being a somewhat sad individual at times, i browsed the old newsgroup archives on groups.google.com
in one of the posts from around 1990, early 1991, someone mentions the possibility of an alternate Miracle being released, with tracks that didnt make the original album. did anyone else hear this? the first I heard of it was from this post.

I think "The Alternative Miracle" was to have been a b-sides album....

cheers. it would have only been a few tracks though!

unless it discounted the bonus tracks from The Miracle

it would be

1.hijack my heart
2.stealin'
3.my life has been saved
4.hang on in there
5. chinese torture

anyone have any idea what the plan was for the rest of it?

"Another Miracle" was to feature all the non-album b-side and 12" extended version cuts that didn't make the parent album. Shame it never came out.

As far as I'm aware a mooted track list was never made available as the idea was probably suggested at the time of the release of "The Miracle", and then dropped for whatever reason. Bit like the proposed Live At The BBC release that was meant to happen in 1995, containing all the BBC session tracks.

I'd imagine Alternative/Complete Miracle would have consisted of the likes of A Human Body, Mad The Swine, Soul Brother etc. I doubt if Hang On In There, Chinese Torture & Invisible Man 12" would have been included, as they were extras on the Miracle cd release.

why would it have Non album B-sides from other albums, as mad the swine was innuendo, a human body the game(i think), and soul brother hot space

That info is exactly correct. Its mentioned in a late '89 or early '90 issue of the fan club magazine that I have. No "A Human Body" or anything like that which wasn't from "The Miracle" era was to be on it.

alex...do you have all those tracks?

that would be a very good tracklisting. someone should suggest they do it now.

but anything that isnt to do with the musical seems to be ignored(well,if I were to ask the question to Brian May about it)
