Do you know any albums or singles (not only by members of Queen) which have been officialy dedicated to Freddie? By 'officialy' I mean that there's a special dedication note on the sleeve. So here are some ones what I know:

Brian May "Back To The Light" (1992) - "This album is dedicated to Harold May, Alfred Dobson, and Freddie Mercury. And to all those loved ones we have lost too soon."

Roger Taylor "Happiness?" (1994) - "Dedicated to the tasmanian tiger - thylacinus cynocephalus..... but most especially.... for Freddie"

Queen "Made In Heaven" (1995) - "Dedicated to the immortal spirit of Freddie Mercury"

And as I remember there is a released Ian Hunter's track "Now Is The Time" and Ian said about this one: "...Queen opened for Mott The Hoople and were lovely blokes and it really upset me when Fred died even though I hadn't seen him for a while, so I wrote 'Now Is The Time'", but I don't know if its sleeve has dedication note.

PS: I don't count in this list songs ABOUT Freddie, Queen, The Red Special, John's kids or whatever, so you don't have to reply with something like this: "Roger's Old Friends is about Fred"
