wikipedia.org is sometimes a great source of information. Sometimes, however, the problem of having a reference site that anyone can contribute to rears its ugly head. The following are excerpts from their articles on several Queen albums detailing unreleased tracks from each session. To say I'm taking this information with a grain of salt would be a rather extreme exaggeration (how many times have we heard that there is NO fast WWRY, for instance), but I thought I'd throw it out here in any event.
Again (in the interest of avoiding confusion and rumors)-I DON'T believe the following to be true, and won't unless some substantial evidence comes forward.
Unreleased songs from these sessions include John Deacon's first song, titled 'Fly By Night', as well as two songs called 'Deep Ridge' (by Brian) and 'Surrender To The City' (by Freddie). Initial ideas for 'Brighton Rock' and 'The Prophets Song' were laid down during these sessions
Sheer Heart Attack:
Along with 'Sheer Heart Attack', several further songs were recorded during these sessions: 'Psycho Legs', an early version of 'Death On Two Legs', was recorded, along with a track by John Deacon called 'Young And Crazy' (not related to 'Tenement Funster'). Other titles of songs include 'Rollin' On', 'Between The Punches', 'Several Saturday Nights', 'The Man In The Mirror', and a lengthy jam called 'Brian's Boogie
A Night At the Opera:
A song written by Brian and Freddie called 'And Baby Will Fall' was originally slated to end the album until it was decided that 'God Save The Queen' be the conclusion. Further, songs titled 'Woe' (written by Brian and Freddie), 'All For Nothing' (written by John), and 'Any Given Day' (written and sung by Brian) were also recorded
A Day At the Races:
Unreleased songs include an early version of 'We Are The Champions' (simply titled 'Champions' at this stage), a re-recording of 'Woe' by Brian and Freddie, a Brian song called 'The Night Draws In', and a Freddie song called 'Lap Of Luxury'.
News Of The World:
A Freddie vocal version of 'Fight From The Inside' was recorded, as was a fast version of 'We Will Rock You', a guitar version of 'My Melancholy Blues', and two versions - one standard rock and one reggae - of 'Who Needs You'. The only true outtakes include a Brian composition titled 'Batteries Not Included' and a Freddie composition titled 'Where Did You Go Now?'
'Coming Soon' was originally recorded during these sessions, and a song called 'Circles' (authorship unknown) was also recorded. These are the only true outtakes, though a Freddie vocal version of 'Leaving Home Ain't Easy' was also recorded. 'Jealousy' and 'In Only Seven Days' were heavily edited; the former ran over five minutes, while the latter edited out a piano solo that brought the song over four minutes
