"Long Lost Re-take
A completely different take than the album version, this take has an almost synthesizer sounding intro (undoubtably from the Red Special) and different vocals at the end. This was released by Hollywood Records in 1991 and has been recently discovered on an acetate record. Recommended just for the sake of hearing something different.
De Lane Demo
Again, a different take from the album version. This is sourced from Queen's original demo tape recorded at De Lane Lea Studios. The intro is on acoustic guitar before the Red Special takes over. Fade-out is similar to the album version."

Included on the American CD remaster of the "Queen" album. Noticeably longer than the normal version, this take has a different intro and slightly different vocals (especially at the end). Described by Brian as a "complete remake" in the accompanying sleevenotes, although it isn't quite as exciting as that makes it sound! Time 4:04
De Lane Lea Demo, 1971
On the bootleg CD "In The Beginning". Quality sound and a distinctly different version. The intro is on acoustic guitar, which is a very striking change. Audibly shorter than usual too. All the De Lane Lea demos can also be found on "The Ultimate Collection 3", but I can't comment on the sound quality there. Time 3:37"
