Over at QOL Greg has put out an official comment on the "I want it all" book. Apprently it's now not slated for release till Chistmas 2007.

However Galileo (the admin) has also added the following info.

"There are still 5 or 6 dvds lined up, singles box set, Freddie solo stuff,main boxsets, the book, plus then possible q+pr studio album, ultimate queen album, ballads album...these are all just on a list of ideas and possible products..."

hmmm does "I want it all" refer to QPL's plans for my money?

I'd rather Queen - no matter what incarnation it may be - stay in the spotlight than fade away like other bands of its heyday. "I want it all" may be apt, but I think also in the fans' case. If even half of those releases happen I'll be happy (especially the singles box set!).

IWIA may be interesting. It's not a bad idea, although with help of certain Greg Brooks it may turn really bad...
But I don't mind all this stuff being lined- GVH3, some 70s gigs, singles box set (well- I'm sucker for those!), MAIN BOX SET...
The one that sounds... weird.. is ULTIMATE QUEEN ALBUM. WTF? Best of Greatest Hits 1, 2 and 3?

Oh, yippee!!!! My faith in Queen has been fully restored.

Singles box set - collection of Greatest Hits
Ultimate Queen - Greatest Hits
Ballads - Like Queen Rocks

Fan-fuckin-tastic.

The whole thing is a pile of shit, being run by people that have no vision and absolutely no regard for what true fans really want.

Who said Queen is over? With those future releases, Queen's music will be alive for centuries. This is GH3 all over again: just another money-spinner for QP, or EMI, or whoever. Bet Trident must be kicking themselves, though!

*Runs off and places pre-order on everything mentioned*


This can't end well.

Nope but they have a damn good idea what will line their pockets. Especially when non-fans don't quite realise that they are buying a repackage of something they already have.

Actually, the Ultimate Queen album and the Ballads album were already invented by Queenzoners years ago


Other good scrape-the-barrel ideas:

Greatest Hits 4
Queen Rocks vol 2 and 3
12 Golden Queen Hits
Queen Memories
Queen B-sides and other previously unreleased crap
The Best Of The Rest

Greatest Already Released Live Tracks Vol 1 and 2?

I may, I may... Do they really pay people for coming up with this stuff? ;)

The Brian May Collection
The Roger Taylor Collection
The John Deacon Collection
The Freddie Mercury Collection
And than the Box with them all in there, with few different pictures and a unique sleeve note written by our beloved Greg Brooks, telling us about the rarities we're still not going to hear...

Greatest Remixes That No-one Would Release Otherwise
Queen- Songs That Should Have Been Hits
Queen- Stuff that We Didn't Squeeze Onto Previous 3 Greatest Hits' Albums
GAME 5.1 Re-Issue (with new found original version of Coming Soon)
The Official Highlander Soundtrack (but containing album versions of the tracks used in the movie, with an extensive sleeve notes from Greg Brooks explaining that the movie versions will be on... Box Sets, yes)


Oh man, that's easy! :) And who knows- we may get some of that ;)

Queen's Optimistic Hits
Queen's Pesimistic Hits
Hits Neither Pesymistic Nor Optimistic, But We Couldn't Come Up With name For Volume 3
And of course the Box with them all in there, with previously unseen pictures of John with a stripper.

"Ultimate Queen" was suggested over at QOL years ago, essentially the idea was to release a compliation of the 17 highest charting singles. Basically a GH including A Winter's Tale, along with "Ballads", it's just a re-hash.

If anything studio-related should be released, it should be in my opinion, the following:

B-side/Demos album
Complete BBC sessions


And why would anyone buy a "Freddie solo stuff" cd, when the box set, Solo and the FM album are in circulation?

So many ideas, and 0 releases!
I think we all need a new Queen compilation to remind us how great this band was!

Greatest Hits volume 4, and then i need your help:

We have the Gold collection- GH 1& 2
We have the Platinium Ollection- GH 1,2 & 3

What metal will fit the four greatest Hists toghether?

Take care
