What exactly is this little gem? How many songs are there on it? Has it all been released on the bootleg market? I have Too Much Love Will Kill You from it, but i assume there is a few more songs from it. So does anyone know what exactly this is? Many thanks in advance!

It is a cassette tape of a home recording session(s) which was given by Elizabeth Lamers (one of the song's co-writers) as a tip to a bell-boy at the hotel where she was staying. Hence the name 'The Bell Boy Tape'.

The original cassette tape was eventually privately sold c1990.

There are around 15 recordings on the complete tape.

Not all of these tracks have (or ever will) reach the bootleg market.

In that case you are very lucky, as none of the above should have 'leaked' in the first place!

Hello everyone !
This has been shared some days ago here.
I would like to know what are the tracks available and those that are not, and also if they only are available in Mp3 form of if there is some kind of gentle queenzoner here who could share flac files of this!
I think we had 4 tracks or something of this, including Moody Keyboards, Bellboy Tape outtakes 2, Bellboy Tape outtakes 3 and Bellboy Tape outtakes 4.

thanks a lot to complete this list with information or tracks, to complete this !

Regards,

Olivier,
France.

Sorry ruth, but not all the tracks will be made available, and of those which have leaked, non will ever be available as true lossless or FLAC files, so you will just have to make do with your MP3 versions I am afraid.

(I say true lossless because I have seen these distributed as FLAC files - but these were no more than FLAC'ed MP3's. I have no idea why people do this, other than to trade above their station perhaps?).

As for "Home Duet Demo 4:47 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc", a duet with Lammers was shared here some years ago, I would guess that is the one.

Cheers,

Ok, so mp3 will doing well in that case.
So we have 5 tracks circulating :
Sleepy Blues
Bellboy Tapes Outtake 2
Bellboy Tapes Outtake 3
Bellboy Tapes Outtake 4
Moody Keyboards
Of all those files, all except Sleepy Blues were shared recently, so as soon as I have this track back (not before next week) I propose to share it anew on Queenzone, don't think it was shared recently (but maybe I'm wrong !).
Anyway, you talk about a 6th track, a duet with Mrs. Lammers, "Home Duet Demo 4:47 - Unreleased: Home Mini-Disc". If it was shared here before, then can anybody share it anew ? I think it can be shared here, and it will launch anew this thread.
Of course no need to disguise mp3 in Flac here, mp3 are the best we can get so let's go for it !
If anybody knows what other tracks were shared, please complete this list with at least information, or even better with those tracks.
Hope this will be making Queenzone even more a lively place....

Regards,

Olivier,
France.

OK thanks for sharing this. Can anybody confirm this is from the Bellboy Tape ? This track was available since a long time ago now I think, is it a part of this tape ?

Thanks a lot to everybody who could offer its knowledge about this.

I've had that song for years and it's pathetic. Sounds like orgasm and crying at the same time at the beginning.

True, remember that demos are often coming to life with a lot of suffering ;o)
