I'm assuming the DVD is partly an updated 5.1 remix of the album, as God Save The Queen will finally be featured in true 5.1 surround sound, since they only recently re-discovered the missing multitrack master tape.

so let me get this straight. the special 30th anniversary ANATO is the tracks we already know (is it the remaster we already know? th emini vinyl one?) and the 5.1 dvd-a that we also already know? Oh no- I forgot- that's the new super amazing 5.1 mix of God Save The queen in there that we don't know!!! Wow- what a treat!!! Am I the only one who thinks this is bullshit (if it's true...)?

You're not the only one (if it's true...)

It's likely to be a 3 disc set:

1 - ANATO in DVD 5:1 surround sound
2 - ANATO in another re-mastered / remixed audio CD format.
3 - ANATO out-takes, demos, alternate versions etc

Sure, it's a rip off in a sense, but then a disc full of rarities etc will be worth any money in my book. The packaging will likely be along the same lines as the great 3 disc release of The Kinks Are The The Village Green Preservation Society from earlier this year.

it's not my ideal way of doing it, but then again, when have QPL ever listened to what fans want.

It's just provided that there really is going to be a 3rd CD- than I don't mind the other two- hell, than I'm happy they have this 5.1 God Save The Queen (I really couldn't acre less about this track though...). I have a gut feeling tough it may end up with just 2- cd and dvd... Well- that's me after years of observing QP actions anyway... Hope I'll eat my words. If you're right Benn (about 3rd CD full of rarities)- I'm happy.

If the boxsets are still scheduled for some sort of release... I would have thought it was highy unlikely any real rarities would surface on a re-issue of ANATO.

The box sets have been cancelled and are being replaced in terms of planning by the roll out of 3-cd / dvd sets like the ANATO release this Christmas.

they could also puts a few rare bonus tracks on the disc, instead of those bogus remixes from the 91 releases, that's even a bigger ripoff. i'm still hoping for a live dvd of that era, but i know we'll never get that.

'benn' that story changes all the time, first there was supposed to be box sets, then it was cancelled in favor of releasing every album with rarities from each era, then that was cancelled, now the box sets are back on for a release of 2009. got that.

I reckon this will just be the 5.1 DVD-A soundtrack, with GSTQ restored (big f**king deal), and my guess would be that the BBC Bohemian Rhspsody documentary will appear somewhere in the package. It would very much surprise me if QPL gave us anything very exciting. To be honest, unless there is a bonus CD of previously unreleased rarities (not just I'm In Love With My Car 7" single mix), I'd much rather have some more DVD-As. What's happened to the rumoured QII and ADATR DVD-As?

That said, you never know, we might get the 9 minute Bohemian Rhapsody! ;)

She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

HAHA! I got the same feeling... and I have also a bad feeling about the so-called Anthology Box next to be released on 2009 (pffft)...

Will it be FULL of rarities, outtakes and remastered B-sides, live stuff and others, as Bon Jovi's 100,000,000 BJ fans can't be wrong Box Set? - sorry for the example... my girlfriend bought that recently xD


Agree with you guys. Worried they're screwing with us again.

Whether there are unreleased rarities from the vaults included or not, I'll still buy it. Just mostly cos of GSTQ 5.1

Will it come out here? I'm sure 'bout the answer: No.


You're sure huh?

It WAS mentioned in the US press release about the American concerts, live cd/dvd and tribute album. So I'm pretty sure it WILL be released in the USA.

Maybe I'm just being overly pessimistic here, but to me the "special anniversary DVD and CD" sounds like they will release the old CD and DVDA separately, and just put a 30th Anniversary -sticker on the cover... :P

Source of the 3disc set:

A contact of mine at EMI. Same source that tells me the box set has been cancelled.
