THE CD IS THE ORIGINAL TRACKLISTING, IF ANYTHING THE LP IS THE ODDBALL BECAUSE SOME OF THE SONGS ARE EDITED.

There's a bit of a glitch involving the tracklist.
According to QueenWords, Don't Try So Hard is #9 on the LP, but #5 on the CD.
As well, tracks 2, 5, 10, and 11 are edited for the LP.
Someone's having issues fitting it all on there.
Can you say "outdated medium?"

Why bother?
Just rip all the tracks to your PC (in lossless of course), re-arrange and re-tag them as you see fit, and then burn it onto a CD-R.

Voila! Fix-ed.

It might be because on vinyl there is a smaller amount of space than a CD.

The Innuendo vinyl version had the tracks edited (& moved) for the reason of sound quality (the longer the album, the smaller the grooves & lower sound). That was the explanation from EMI at the time, but many people pointed out that Greatest hits 1 was longer in length, with no problems...I did have Innuendo on vinyl, the edits on some tracks were not noticable, but Bijou was awful, no guitar either side, just the vocal section...Hope this helps :-)

1) The GHII is a double vinyl set, while INNUENDO is a single disc. There is always some commercial risk in releasing a double album. Of course a hits compilation is an exception. Also, some GHII tracks were edited even in the CD.

2) The Japanese LP replica has the regular CD tracklisting/versions.

3) There is a Mexican CD issue taken from the vinyl master.
