The latest Queen + Paul Rodgers live internet downloads has included the Hamburg version of "We Are The Champions/God Save The Queen".

This means that at least one live version of all the typical set numbers - is now officially available. (Though exceptions like "Wishing Well" and "Let There Be Drums" spring to mind, they could be added to the next burnable set of downloads).

Therefore, should I burn my first official CDs - or should I await for the dreaded taped version of "Bohemian Rhapsody"?

Give it a week or two (or three if you're really patient).

If nothing shows up of BohRap, then go ahead and burn your CD.

I burnt my one Q+PR track on a "Spring Mix 2005" audio CD-R disc this past weekend, and it sounds much better playing the songs from CD than in Windows Media Player, because for some reason WMP compresses the volume/sound, especially when loud bursts happen (a la Dolby Digital).

I burned my tracks to disc as I purchased them and havemanaged to then convert them to .wav files and master them for myself. This way, you can burn them as many times as you like.

Wait till you have them all.

Or burn to a non-official disc and have a listen - see what you think

True.

I ripped it back to computer and re-encoded it as an MP3, cos I was getting tired of the way Windows Media Player compresses the sound when music files are played.
