These instrumental versions from The Eye.....by instrumental does it mean that the vocals have been removed or rather that they have been replaced by an instrument of some sort playing the vocal part. Apologies in advance if this has already been discussed.....

Great stuff, John. I seem to remember from a previous post of yours ages ago songs titled 'You're Not The Only One' and 'Demo 2' came from the AKOM recording sessions, as well as 'Love Makin' Love'. Or am I just crazy?

Also - would the original version of 'A Kind Of Magic' (the one that appears in the credits of Highlander) be considered the original version or an edit? Conversely, the 2003 version from Live At Wembley - is THAT the original version or extended? I guess it's not all that important, but that just crossed my mind.

The eYe versions are instrumental in the sense that the vocals have been removed - ie Karaoke if you like.

You could have given me a few more moments to complete the thread!

Lester Burnham: Correct on all accounts Lester, that's why I need a proof-reader to guard against such typos!

Love Makin' Love: Can be found in the FM box set (CD 7), I believe that this info is found in the accompanying book.

More seriously though, like previous entries I have just stuck to facts rather than speculations - but I believe that the 'A Kind Of Magic' film version is the original "...before that rotter Freddie got hold of it."

By cataloguing it as the Original Soundtrack Version (OST): 1986 Highlander OST Version - Highlander: Warner Home Video PES 38050, I thought I could circumvent any disputes.

However, now the thread has moved 'beyond the academic', I welcome any such suggestions (as long as they have evidence) and I think that it was Roger Taylor who claimed that the end credit version was closer to (if not the) original itself.

Heh, in all fairness to Mr. J, I don't think he was aware that you hadn't yet finished the thread (unlike me, who caught the full thing over at QOL).

Also, I would say that the Wembley DVD version of AKOM is the standard version, and that the Highlander version is merely an edit - if I recall correctly, it just fades out about thirty seconds before the conclusion, and I find it strange that the band would produce an extended mix of a song that was still half-baked. Maybe if the credits from Highlander had gone on for thirty seconds longer, we may have gotten the full version...

I agree.

I too think it would have been silly to extend an unreleased version, but, it does make sense to shorten the OST to fit the credit length.

By this thinking, the Wembley version would be the 'original', and the End Credits version an 'edit' of that original.

The comment to Mr J - was NOT meant to be taken seriously! (Hence the exclamation!).

You have my most sincere apologies. In my ignorance, I was actually wondering why this was significantly shorter than your other Ultimate Collection threads. Regardless, thanks again for the incredibly informative threads and also thanks for the quick reply.

Right, I'm starting to get the hang of the meaning of exclamations (especially double exclamations) courtesy of the thread posted a couple of days ago!

Hi John,

which one of your Who Wants To Live Forever versions is the one with Freddie singing the first part (being heard in the movie) instead of Brian for the album version?

Hi John,

which one of your Who Wants To Live Forever versions is the one with Freddie singing the first part (being heard in the movie) instead of Brian for the album version?

Jan


None actually - the demo versions are all instrumentals.

Thanks John!

Notes: FWBF video from GVH2 is longer than from GF2.

Queen's promotional video (not film) for HFE was released on GF3 VHS.

Tutti Frutti from DVD is unedited version.

And I don't know if it needs to be count, but how about Brian's "Butterfly" theme?

About You're The Only One, is it a Queen song or a Freddie solo song?

BTW, nice list John, thanks.

So, what do we know of the snippet of "New York, New York"? I find it a little hard to believe that they would record just the fragment.


"New York, New York" was recorded more as an ad-lib than a complete track, so sorry Thomas, but indeed, that's all there is.
