Queen's GH I, II and III is once again in the U/K charts. It's at number 26 this week (week beggining Monday March 28th). This seems to happen every couple of months and I find it amazing. It has gone in higher than many new entries. Just thought I'd report it because I think it's amazing.

Goes to show how good the first two are as well, that they can carry the third one.

I agree Freddie-B I never liked the third one as much as the rest. The only ones I listen to out of that are TATDOOL, Barcelona, POTU and The Great Pretender, Living On My Own and Las Palabras De Amor. The worst has to be that Godawful remix of AOBTD, does anyone actually like that ?

To be totally honest, I don't mind the AOBTD remix, although it's not really Queen it's got a good feel to it.

I think the Under Pressure mix isn't up to much and I think it fails to deliver an awful lot of Queen songs.

How many songs on there out of the total number are bona fide "Queen" songs-ie all 4 members, playing together as Queen from their recording career?

Great news!!! BTW I too don't like No 3. Actually I totally dislike it! Too many remixes and cover songs to be a real Greatest Hits album.

considering HMV are doing a big promotion on Queen's back catalogue, and selling the cds at cheap prices, I'm not surprised!

Gotta clear them shelves for the Special Edition CD's so we can all buy the same album AGAIN just for extra tracks !
