Hi
I think Queen Productions should release a compilation album with all the B-Sides from the singles
I mean only people who bought the 45's would have listened to them in the UK
I did email brianmay.com about this once
What do you think?

They only ever recorded a handful of b-sides, most of them were just album tracks.

"Only people who bought the 45s got them"

Well, that's quite a few people, isn't it?

If you want to hear the B sides and you don't mind paying then allofmp3.com has all the singles with the B-sides. Just search Queen and it has all the albums, compilations and singles.

1. See What a Fool I've Been
2. A Human Body
3. Soul Brother
4. I Go Crazy
5. A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling
6. Stealin
7. Hang on in There
8. Chinese Torture
9. Hijack my Heart
10. Lost Opportunity
11. Mad the Swine
12. Rock in Rio Blues


That's 12 tracks certainly enough for a viable album. I didn't include Blurred Vision because its shite basically. I wouldn't hold my breath though


Guess who's back?

You should add My Melancholy Blues (live Houston 1977) and Stone Cold Crazy (live Rainbow 1974). Officially, these haven't been released on any album, studio or live. You could also add Thank God It's Christmas, because it was initially a non-album single before its inclusion in GH3.

23 songs, all that fit onto a single disc:

1. See What A Fool I've Been (B-side 'Seven Seas Of Rhye')
2. Flick Of The Wrist (technically a double A-side with 'Killer Queen', but in a standalone version)
3. Lily Of The Valley (B-side 'Now I'm Here')
4. I'm In Love With My Car (B-side 'Bohemian Rhapsody', mixed only slightly differently)
5. Tenement Funster (standalone version from Queen's First EP)
6. A Human Body (B-side 'Play The Game')
7. Soul Brother (B-side 'Under Pressure')
8. I Go Crazy (B-side 'Radio Ga Ga')
9. Blurred Vision (worthless B-side 'One Vision')
10. A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling (B-side 'A Kind Of Magic')
11. Forever (from the 12" 'Who Wants To Live Forever')
12. Chinese Torture (not a B-side, but from CD version of The Miracle)
13. Hang On In There (B-side 'I Want It All')
14. Stealin' (B-side 'Breakthru')
15. Hijack My Heart (B-side 'The Invisible Man')
16. My Life Has Been Saved (B-side 'Scandal')
17. Stone Cold Crazy (live) (B-side 'The Miracle')
18. My Melancholy Blues (live) (from 12" and CD versions of 'The Miracle')
19. Lost Opportunity (from CD single of 'Slightly Mad')
20. Mad The Swine (from CD single of 'Headlong', I think)
21. Queen Talks (worthless but included on 'The Show Must Go On' CD single)
22. It's A Beautiful Day (single mix from 'Heaven For Everyone' CD single)
23. Rock In Rio Blues (from 'A Winter's Tale' CD single)

Also, you could throw on 'Gimme The Prize (instrumental)' and 'We Will Rock You (ruined by Rick Rubin)' from No One But You, various 'You Don't Fool Me' remixes, and the various 'Under Pressure' remixes from 1999.

Are you saying that they therefore shouldn't be on any such album, or are you helping people pick up these rare-ish tracks?
