Thanks John!

I'm not sure but since you've mentioned I Can't Live With You and I'm In Love With My Car QR versions - how about I Want It All then? Or it goes in The Miracle chapter?

And one little mistype - premiere of the ballet was in 1997, not 1977, I think ;-)

You mentioned UK 7"Unsegued - Japan 3" CDS TODP 2253 (Bo Rhap B-side)and Japan 7" Unsegued - Japan 3" CDS TODP 2253 (Bo Rhap B-side). Aren't they both the same single mix?

Thanks,

Sorry, but to be honest, I don't remember this at all. (That does not mean that you are mistaken - it just means I don't remember!)

I would be interested if anyone could shed further light - or - better still any evidence.

I think it has more to do with the car revs at the start and end of the track. If you give all the above versions a fair bench test, I think you may find miniscule differences between them - but certainly, nothing major. (Unlike say "Keep Passing The Open Windows" CD track and the 12" version).

However, because of those miniscule differences, I thought that if I did not list them as seperate versions, then someone would point those out also!

YES Serry - 1977 was indeed a typing error, and should have read 1997 instead. Sorry ;-(
But I did warn above that I can (and do) make silly mistakes - and that must be one of the silliest!

However, if anyone can come up with a version 20 years BEFORE it was written, then I think they may have a MAJOR rarity on their hands!

Excellent stuff Alex, but, do you have any more details? Date, title, etc?

Hola, John!

Brian and Roger gave an interview at Barcelona's Hard Rock Cafe talking about the new compilation (Queen Rocks), the brand new single (NOBY), their news solo records and the Ondas award for their contribution to music which they won that year.
The ceremony was televised.

"Los premios Ondas" are very important in Spain, these awards are the 'spanish' Ivor Novello.


But you can always depend on me

In the run-up to the album's release, there was talk that the album would include either a remix of "Tie Your Mother Down" or a Japanese remaster of "Tie Your Mother Down", depending on the source you read, perhaps as a double a-side single as well. I am fairly certain the possibility of either was refered to in the fan club magazine prior to the album's release, but I'll have to take a look at my old copies to be sure. That's as much documentation as I could conceivably provide.


Blow it out your ass.

I don't have this "release" (thank God) but some friend of mine does and his version features one more cover: A Kind Of Magic by___ can't remember the name of the artist but I'll ask him tomorrow.


A Kind Of Magic by Angélica.

A shitty shitty shitty version. Just like the whole album.

I remember this as well, although I thought it was a remix of 'If You Can't Beat Them'? Does anybody remember the first tracklisting of the album? I remember 'Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll' and 'Beat Them' was on there, and maybe even 'Ogre Battle', but I'm not sure otherwise.

I take notes from bits and pieces that I think are interesting and in 1997 I wrote down that on October 27th, 1997 Tie your mother down was going to be released and on December 15th I can´t live with you. No b-sides were known at the time.

From the fanclubsite (October 9th, 1997):
"The track [NOBY] will be a single, but not released until AFTER the album, and a second single is likely (I Can't Live With You). I have today received an email which says that someone has heard a "great new version" of Fat Bottomed Girls on radio in Australia...I'm afraid no one in the Queen camp has any idea about this, as they certainly haven't remixed this track! it now transpires also that the version of Tie Your Mother Down on the Rocks album is NOT a remix - this MIGHT be done as a possible third single."

and from October 13th, 1997:
"No-one but you will be the first single from Queen Rocks One and will be released AFTER the album, no single will be released prior to the album. I Can't Live With You is likely to be a second single in January but this hasn't been confirmed yet."

I hope this is useful.

Hi John, just a few minor corrections:
aren't CDs 5"?
(US CD 12” Radio 4:29 Bran Malouf Remix
US CD 12” Radio 4:13 Bran Malouf Remix Edit)
.. and that's Brian Malouf by the way ;-)
Oh, and the Béjart Ballet has been released officially - on video!
Cheers,

Mike

Thank you for your attention to detail.

Yes (physically) CD's are only 5", but these headings refer to 12" vinyl mixes (or indeed unique 12" mixes) on 5" CDs.

It's quite a recognised practice/description really - I never thought anyone would literally think that CDs were 12"!

I also know that these are Brian (not Bran) Malouf rmixes, but as written in my "blurb at the top...

"I apologise for any careless omissions or errors in advance, (I have proof-read but I have been restricted to one-handed work only). Please feel free to contribute and to push the boundaries forwards. (Also, if used/reproduced elsewhere - an acknowledgement would be courteous)"

Yes, the Ballet has also been released, and I have a copy of that video too.

I have edited the above post to incorporate those silly typing/cut and paste errors.

--------------------------------------------------

Vielen Dank für Ihre Aufmerksamkeit auf das Detail.

Ja (physisch) ist CD nur 5" sich aber diese Kopfstücke auf 12" Vinylmischungen (oder tatsächlich einzigartige 12" Mischungen) auf 5" CD beziehen.

Das ist ganz eine anerkannte Praxis/Beschreibung wirklich - ich dachte nie, dass irgendjemand wörtlich denken würde, dass CD 12" war!

Ich weiß auch, dass diese Brian (nicht Kleie) Malouf rmixes, aber wie geschrieben, in meinem "Klappentext oben sind...

"Ich entschuldige mich für irgendwelche unbesonnenen Weglassungen oder Fehler im Voraus, (ich habe Korrektur gelesen, aber ich bin auf die einhändige Arbeit eingeschränkt worden nur). Fühlen Sie sich bitte frei, beizutragen und die Grenzen vorwärts zu stoßen. (Außerdem wenn verwendet/vermehrt, anderswohin - würde eine Anerkennung höflich sein)"

Ja, das Ballett ist auch veröffentlicht worden, und ich habe eine Kopie dieses Videos auch.

Ich habe den obengenannten Posten editiert, um diejenigen dummes Schreiben/Kürzung und Teig-Fehler zu vereinigen.

Some info about NOBY: the song was recorded in home studios of Brian and Roger - Alerton Hill and Cosford Mill. John did his work in one of them, I guess...

Dunno about ICLWY re-take...

I don't think John was involved in the I Can't Live With You retake, I remember reading just Brian and Roger worked on it on the old QO site.

I asked Greg about another version of TYMD that was supposed to be on Rocks, and he replied saying that Brian had said that they could not better the original.
