I just bought Queen On Fire, Live at the Bowl double CD here in China. But there's no GDML!!! The first track in CD 2 is Guitar Solo, even this I doubt if this Solo is complete!

It upsets me too much! I initially went into rapture when I discovered the official released album in China. Since then there was only ANATO CD. No DVDs. But only after I played the tracks I found the GDML missing! What a heavy blow! The bloody EMI China even declares on the CD cover that "This is a COMPLETE recording of their live concert":(

I bought it at a very expensive price, I thought it was all worth it, but now all I feel is anger and despair, cheated! To me even one SECOND missing in Queen recordings is intolerable...

What should I do???

I'm very sorry to hear that you got an altered version.

This song has been eliminated from releases in the past, such as News of the World in Argentina, South Korea, etc.

So I would imagine it's a censorship problem. Hard to believe!

Thank you very much Jeffrey, just got it! Sounds amazing!!! Never heard the studio version but I always like the live one, especially the "sexy part". Fuck the censorship! I can't get acess to the link you recommended either, as well as many other sites:(

But lots of thanks again, to you and many beautiful people here. We have the Internet and can break them down!

Glad you got it so I can edit the message and remove the link. They get so upset over sharing certain things here, even when there's a good reason :)

Belle, I don't mean to ask this question, but in China, is it true that the Chinese gov't has strict control over what you can view or type on the Internet?

I'd spell it out straight, but for fear of your gov't's "filters" that I've read about blocking this page, I'm going to spell it out with dashes so you can understand what I'm trying to type.

What I'm referring to is when you do searches on:

Human -ri-gh-ts
Tai-wa-n

...is it true that the filters I heard about kick in and give you a page with no results?

What you said is mostly true, Richard. The gov has strict surveilance on Internet concerning human rights and Taiwan, and other stuff. Your post can get deleted if it's "sensitive", and you'll just get blank pages if the sites are "sensitive",too. Sometimes you get so annoyed cos you only want to do a little research for academic reasons but they just block all of them, even those do no harm to the gov. However, sometimes they are not so strict, and you can get what you want. But there are many sites that I just can't get acess to,don't know why.

Fortunately no blocking to lots of Queen sites, that's what I'm grateful:)

Anyway, who cares about Human Rights and Taiwan? I mean, for most ordinary people here(don't get me wrong, I'm not human rights ignorant) Everybody here is aspiring for better life, better education, and better future for us all, not wishing to get involved in politics.
