Evening all.

I trust this post finds you in a pleasant mood, and comfortable surroundings.

Anyway...

Is there a site, or does anyone have a list that comprehensively details all the rare songs and demos played by Greg at the various conventions over the years?

I know I've seen a site somewhere that had a fairly good list, but I know that it only covered 1 or 2 conventions. That's enough for me I'm afraid.

There is a list of the demos played in 2000 and 2001 on this old website but you probably saw it

I don't think they played any demos in 2002 and 2003 but I could be wrong. Last year they had a couple of quite unspectacular demos on the English and Dutch convention. They were voiced over every 20 seconds by GB saying "property of Queen Productions" and it was not much fun to listen.

Thanks Barb. When I saw the queen.aktualne.cz domain I knew I would have seen the site before, but I couldn't remember what that the hell the site was. Lo and behold it was Scully's original site!

And thanks Ian, you fellow Devonian you. Great list, and much appreciated.

Anyone know if there's anything that's not covered on either of those lists?

RonB has a list on his website queenpicturehall called "in the vaults". The demos he lists were NOT all played on conventions , therefore he has tracks like Victory et al.

already mentioned by YourValentine:
www.queenpicturehall.com/queenbox/
I used to call this section "queen anthology box sets" but they probably wont be released in that format anymore, so I changed the name :)
