You read it here first!
In February I posted the above. On February 14 this release (or the date?) was denied on BM.com:
**Tue 14 Feb 06**
Toshiba-EMI confirm that news from HMV Japan of a Queen CD release, scheduled for 31 March was incorrect information. Apologies.
Today (April 4) QOL posted this as news:
PACHISLOT COLLECTION FOR JAPAN
Album Title : Rock You Queen
Release Date: May, 2006 (TBC)
Pachislot, "Rock You Queen" will be coming out this spring. This is a very first pachislot collaborated with a world well-known artist and features classic tunes such as "I Was Born To Love You", "We Will Rock You", "We Are The Champions", etc as well as live footage and amazing computer generated image of Queen. “Rock You Queen” is a fusion of pachislot and live rock music.
In conjunction with the release of “Rock you Queen” pachislot, the soundtrack which features 14 Queen tunes and CG video of "I Was Born To Love You" bringing Freddie Mercury back to life will be released in May.
