All God's People
Working title: “Africa By Night”. Began life during Freddie’s solo 1987 Barcelona sessions
Freddie Mercury solo Barcelona version - Unreleased:

Just to clarify things in my head -
Is this listing a reference to a third version of All God's People, one that ocurred between the original 1987 Africa By Night version and the 1991 version on Innuendo? Did Freddie cut two demos to the song before the band got involved?

No: I have included it here again as part of the 'Barcelona sessions' umbrella.
Freddie Mercury/ Montseratte Caballe: Barcelona - RECORDED 1987/ Released Oct 1988

The history should read:

Africa By Night
Freddie solo Barcelona demo.

All God's People
CD Version - Innuendo: Parlophone CDP 79 5887 2
LP Vinyl 3:55 (Early Fade) - Parlophone PCSD 115

I do not know if a Queen demo exists.

It had to do with your re-naming of the demo and the double listing in 1987 and 1988 (Africa By Night in 1987, All God's People in 1988).

As usual, I read too much into it.

EDIT - ok, we're on the same page now :)

No - it's my fault - as I did not state that clearly enough.

Thanks John!

One little note: Dog With A Bone exists in few versions - with spoken messages by the band members (but without those "Get the double tempo" lines, convention version) and without it. And by the way: so title of the song is "Dog With A Bone", not "Good Times"?

"It's In Everyone Of Us" - 2:30? I think my copy of that track is about 4 mins :)

Haven't heard about "Freddie Mercury/Caballe: Live Avinguda De Maria Christina Stadium, October 1988 Barcelona"...

Me neither!
I know that she sang in a stadium to the final Champions League cup. But that was around 1999/2000.

Take care

Hey John,

Thanks for all the info.

Thought I'd point out a typo: it's "La Japonaise," not "La Japanaise."

Great - I spend hours of free time on a labour of love, and the best you can come up with is a typo (which I apologised for in advance: "I apologise for any careless omissions or errors...").

Black Sabbath: Headless Cross
Recorded 1988/ Released 1989
UK LP - EIRSA 1002
UK CD - IRS EIRSACD 1002
Recorded August - November 1988, at Soundmill Studios, Woodcray.
Released April 1989 – No 31.
Produced by Toni Iommi and Cozy Powell.
Vocals Tony Martin, Keyboards Geoff Nicholls.
Brian May guest guitarist.
Recorded same time as Nothin’ But Blue (Back To The Light), and Somewhere In Time (Drums Are Back)
Gates Of Hell, Headless Cross, Devil And Daughter, When Death Calls, Kill In The Spirit World, Call Of The Wild, Black Moon, Rightwing
When Death Calls
(Brian May Guitar)

Just a quick thought, but wasn't 'Nothin but Blue' written a few years later...if I can recall something, I think there was an interview saying that it was actually one of the tracks about Freddie, and how they haven't toured in forever, etc. I don't know...forgive me if I'm off my rocker...

If I recall correctly - the information (dates) comes from the CD booklets:

'Headless Cross' - Black Sabbath.
'The Drums Are Back' - Cozy Powell.
'Back To The Light' - Brian May.

I think this was also a period of time when Cozy Powell and Brian May were particulary close.

Why is it that some people always take every response (or at least a lot of responses) as negative critics?

Yes, you "apologise for any careless omissions or errors..."
Does that mean that no one can say that there is a spelling error? No, of course not.
When someone adds a spelling error, does that mean that he doesn't appreciate all the time and effort you are putting into this? No, of course not.
We all (including me) appreciate your work very much.

OK, ontopic, I could say that I miss the two different stand-alone versions of 'Guide me home', like I did (and someone else too) in an other topic, but I won't because obviously you didn't appreciated my additions there, so probably you won't appreciate them here too.

No hard feelings... and I still appreciate all the work and effort you put into it.

I think you are reading too much into this post - and the banter which obviously exists in a private message between Japanese Torture and myself.

Reading his reply: "My pleasure" - I can see that he is no more offended than I was when he wrote his original comment.

Not so:

I already ammended these in the 1987 thread, but I did not ammend under the 1988 topic heading. Careless of me I know - but I am only human.

Guide Me Home
Album (Segued) Version 2:39 - Polydor POLH 44

German Lancia Promotion CD 2:42
Instrumental 2:37 - Solo Collection: 527 9640
Promotional Video

I have now edited the above to include these corrections.

Getting worked-up over 'The', or 'Japan' or 'Japon' is not really my style. Yes, I will use a droll ironic wit to defuse the situation, but that does not mean that I am not interested or that I do not care.

Once again, great information, thanks a lot.

This is most interesting:

"Offenbach’s Tales Of Hoffman 1 & 2 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc"

Could you tell us more about those recordings? What are the exact titles of the songs and are those serious attempts?
Also, what about the pieces "1&2" by Chopin and the Bach-preludes?
