These are a load of pirated home made discs - which were confiscated by the Liverpool custom and excise around mid 1980's.

They are none other than degenerated Larry Lurex and Smile discs and are not worth the plastic they are pressed on.

Anyone know how to stop it?

But look in what shape those discs are, it looks like they're straight from the fireplace. Rubbish.

Go buy the box-set.

Lets see

Freddie Mercury: Solo Collection
It is cheaper.
It contains 8 CDS of unreleased/remixed material.
It contains 2 DVDs.
It contains a luxury glossy booklet.
All in far better audio quality.

Vs.

Pirate 7" vinyl.
It is more expensive
Scratched to F*ck vinyl
Abismal degenerated audio quality

It's a hard choice isn't it!

I'm giving thought into e-mailing the guy to politely request he removes the item. What a load of tripe! I hope no-one is daft enough to actually pay for such rubbish.


The Nasty Queenies are back! What do you think of that!?

Sorry, they are 10 CDs :-P


Mr. Bad Guy and Barcelona are unmixed and released


Thanks Mr T for the support. Your reading of my mail is correct. I did not include Bad Guy and Barcelona for that very reason.

Alex I could have written:

It contains 10 CDs.
It contains 8 CDS of unreleased/remixed material.

But he point is the same ;-P
Who wants to buy sh*tty vinyl at box-set prices!!!

NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

John....I was just quoting the 'knowledgeable'(?) eBayer with my 'Freddie' comment. Guess I'll have to use the ol' smiley instead of the .......

Very aware of the IronWire crap. We've got a Mercury 45 of the 'Earth/Step On Me' vinyl. At least, we think we do. I know that there are pirate copies of this. Ours may very well be one (we hope not).

We do own the FM box set. We do not have the ultra rare Russian cassette of preQueen Freddie, found by the youngster who luckily had it given to him by his father a few years ago......

Well, back to watching the North Korean 'Man In The Shadows' laser disc............

there was a story in Liverpool of box of genuine items being found in an old flat in liverpool, I think it was at the dovedale towers hotel. these could be remnants from this find.

I used to drink in the dovedale when I was at uni, and I never knew Freddie had ever lived there when I used to frequent the place.

Do you have the regular release or the one with Johns face etched into the disc?
