Hi all -

Ever since John S Stuart mentioned this release i have been getting excited and curious as to what we might see on Disc 2 of this release. Does anybody have any thoughts or ideas of what material could or should be on disc 2 of this release??

Perhaps John S Stuart can make some suggestions as to what rareities he thinks Queen could include - i'm always interested to read John's fascinating posts on the Queen archive...


Cheers,

Chris

we all know the kind of "fodder" that will fill the second "collectors-only-special-edition-ripoff-the-genuine-fans-by-emptying-their-wallets-disc"

but if I could have m,y choice it wouldn't be anything ANATO - it'd be.... all the demos and studio out-takes from QueenII

There's been no actual confirmation of a second disc, just a "special edition"

Born In The USA was recently reissued as a "Special Edition" - extra pictures in the booklet.

I hope to be wrong, but after the last year I refuse to get my hopes up.

The Free catalogue has recently been reissued with every album featuring an extra six or so tracks (on the same disc, tacked on after the final song), consisting of radio session versions, alternate mixes, unused tracks, etc.
The anniversary edition of Deep Purple in Rock that just came out has the exact same thing.

Maybe the ANATO release will be like this?

BTW are we sure this is actually going to happen? John S Stuart may have been 100% correct in believing that QPL were planning to release these special edition albums, but what's to say QPL won't change their plans?
