Are the Greatest Hits Off The Record music books any good? And how acurate are they? And what is their value?


Thanks

Defintely worth the money.

I'd say they're on the whole about 90+% accurate. You do find the odd glaring mistake ("multiple bass drums" in We Will Rock You, or Headlong not in drop-D tuning for example) but on the whole they're pretty damn good.

The ANATO tab-book is also worth checking out, although it's not as comprehensive as the OTR series.

Is there anyone who knows where to get the Off The Record book of both greatest hits albums?

Or even better:
I remember seeing an OTR book which coupled both Greatest Hits albums, with a sleeve similar to the Box Of Flix video.
I've been looking for this for quite some years now, but never managed to get it somewhere.
Especially the tracks from GH1 seem to be quite hard to get in OTR-form.

I dó have the complete Innuendo album in OTR-form, and also the complete Queen 1 album and a collection called Rock Legends, which is in fact a selection from GH1

Sorry, you just have to keep trying music shops.

the two together was quite expensive (£50) so didn't sell very many.

Incidentally, Innuendo, Queen I & Rocks also had OTR editions.
