Question 1: Why was the track listing for Roger's 'Fun In Space' Capitol LP different from the rest of the world?

Question 2: Billy Squier......with all of the collaborations he did with various Queen members on four LPs, as well as opening most of the USA Hot Space tour....why was he not at the Tribute Concert?

Question 3: Why no collaborations after 'Enough Is Enough'.

I have googled questions 2 and 3 to death, with no results.

Overly curious minds do want to know.

Thanks in advance

Billy was at the Tribute concert, as you can see from the mass line-up at the end of WATC, but he didn't perform (much like the Scorpions who were also there as back-ups supposedly). My only guess is that he wasn't big enough in 1991 to warrant a spot on the bill.

Question 1:

I believe you may be confusing two albums.
Tracklist for Fun In Space is identical on all labels.
But tracklists for Strange Frontier ARE different. ;-)

Yup....my mind and fingers screwed up on the Strange Frontier question.

Is it too late to edit?

OK, back to the questions. Why, why, and why?

I will have to look at the lineup for WATC. This is the first time someone has pointed that out to us, Zeni. Thank you.

He's got no too short hear, a slight beard and a belly! ;-)

Question WHY the different running order?
Dunno... only thing I can think of is that they wanted to put the 'hit'(ahem...)-single as the very first track on the album. And following they had to reorder for consistancy and 'feel' of the album.
