Who are "they"? Freddie had recorded some of his vocal parts in the first half of 80s...

1980 (though I don't believe that IABD is from The Game sessions) - 1995.

HFE was recorded in autumn of 1987.

"It's a beautiful day" might have been a 1980's idea for a song, but Freddie (Queen) recorded this one > 1990 ...!

"Let me live" , the same , it might have been a 1983/84 Rod Stewart/Freddie (Queen) idea, but wasnt recorded properly until much later ...

And there are "discusions" regarding "you don't fool me" .... it appeared to be an 1980's Queen song which was re-done in 1994/1995 ... And if I am right , on this song Freddie's voice sounds more post-innuendo ...

Beautiful Day has been confirmed to have been a vocal and piano demo from April 1980. Let Me Live was apparently constructed out of a 90 second recording from 1983, while You Don't Fool Me was recorded post-Innuendo in 1991. I imagine all three of these songs, much like the others, were tinkered with in 1994/1995.

I remain firm that Freddie recorded until about June 1991 - as much of a hero as we like to believe he was, I just can't imagine him being in any kind of condition to fly from London to Montreux to record, as he was pretty sick right after the Days Of Our Lives video shoot.

However, I don't think we'll ever know if it was October '91 or June '91.

Is there any pictures after ''These are the days of our lives''?
I guess not, cause after that Freddie didn't show himself to larger audience. But you never know.

Glad to see Lester putting forward the correct information. Especially on IABD. I, myself said that it sounded like it was from the Game sessions. Then someone asked through Brian's site and it was later confirmed by Greg Brooks. Case closed on that one.

Peace,
Adam.

It is very strange how freddie have to breath when he sings in "It's A Beautiful Day"; when I heard it I think he is out of breath...

What about the other recordings usually stated to belong to Innuendo Sessions, like, i.e., Secret Fantasy or Committing Robbery?

Ever wandered, also, why Queen did not work, for Made in Heaven, on other Freddie's tracks, like, for instance, "money can't buy happiness" (into a who needs you arrangement it would be beautiful) or "love making love" (with a heavier guitar it could have become a great song!) or the beautiful "it's so you"? I cannot exactly believe that's because 'twas Freddies solo projects... since 1/4 Made in Heaven is made by Freddies solo projects...

Last question... what about other unreleased tracks? I've heard about a third song with Michael Jackson (a so called 'Victory'), and about Freddies other songs recorded after Barcelona, named 'The Phantom of The Opera', and 'Music of the Night' (Rachmaninov's Revenge, instead, was an 'early version' of Barcelona's 'the fallen priest'

Any more detailed information is much appreciated..
