Ok, I know theres always post here about rare Queen songs and concerts and verifying if the exists or not. What I would want to know is whether certain rumoured Vinyls exists such as: Colombian Greatest Hits Blue Vinyl or Israel The Game Grey Vinyl Test Pressing or the New Zealand( I think) Live Magic Red Vinyl or the Mexico "Keep Yourself Alive" '73 issue with picture sleeve?

These are just a few that i can remeber of but I know there are more.

One more thing; A few years ago I saw Greatest Hits Vinyl that the actual vinyl itself was one side gold color and the other black. CAn anyone tell me about this issue. I know John S. Stuart, from what ive read and heard here, knows a lot about collecting and I know others here know a lot as well. If any one can just tell me some info about these rumoured lps. Thanks.


Darling, Im not going to be a rockstar, Im going to be a LEGEND!!

Good news and bad I'm afraid...

The good news is that they do indeed exist.

The bad news is that to own such rarities, you will either have to remortgage your house or win the lottery.

Even then you would still have to find them, and that may take servicing the entrire Scotland (or insert your own) national football team squad!

Or ever finding a good goalkeeper for that matter.

Never seen it but John seems certain :)

or Israel The Game Grey Vinyl Test Pressing


It exists

or the New Zealand( I think) Live Magic Red Vinyl


Never seen it as well

or the Mexico "Keep Yourself Alive" '73 issue with picture sleeve?


I only know of a Mexican 7inch with company sleeve

One more thing; A few years ago I saw Greatest Hits Vinyl that the actual vinyl itself was one side gold color and the other black. CAn anyone tell me about this issue.


I believe that this one was once sold on eBay. Dont know anything about it. Could be a gold plated disc which was once used for a gold award or its some sort of laquer. I dont know. Cant imagine that it was a real commercial issue.

NZ Live Magic Red vinyl - Nope, I doubt it. Although there is an AKOM Red Vinyl.

I was in a record store in Blackpool the other day and saw the 12" Thank God Its Xmas for £16.50 and Queen II British issue for £6.50. I didn't have any money on me and the bloke who owned it looked like he would burn me at the stake after seeing my Switch card so I left it.

Was I a fool?


Guess who's back?

I'd say both prices were about right, so yes you were a fool for not at least asking if he fancied a go on your Switch card.
