I want to know what do you guys think I should start with. I think I'm gonna buy their very first CD and just work my way around it...what do you guys personal think, and how many 'offical' studio albums do they have in all?

Well, they have 15 studio albums in all, from Queen to Made In Heaven.

Personally, I think you should begin with the early stuff, starting from Queen. Also, you should definitley consider investing in A Night at the Opera.

I think from Queen to Jazz is a good starting point.

As for live albums, definitley start off with Live at Wembley and Live at the Bowl. Pure magic. Live Killers is also a good listen of late seventies Queen, but only buy Live Magic if you are a die-hard collector. (That said, it does offer songs completley as they were heard live, with no overdubbings at all, but the length of most of the songs is cut to pieces)

Well you got Innuendo and some other albums all ready due to you knowing the lyrics and all and singing them on this forum... so, get what you don't have! Get the 70s stuff first I guess!

Thought you had the self titled all ready since you know Keep Yourself Alive so well!

I have the DVD live at Wembley, and I have the Milton Keys bowl DVD also...


Can I ask any of you guys a question who watched the special features of the 'live at wembley DVD' when Freddie, Roger, and Brian are being taken away into each of their own limo's...and they have towels over their faces, and its in slow motion...what the name of the song that plays....I really like that song, what's tha name?

^ I think the song you're looking for is 'My Melancholy Blues' - it's on 'News of the World'.
I reckon you should get Queen II first, it's awesome!

I thought about doing that also, but I heard that not all of of the songs are on the CD's in the jewel set, and I need to hear ALL of the songs, if I'm not mistaken, isnt it very limited?

I think starting off with their very first CD is a great idea. My collection started off with their Greatest Hits Platinum Collection. My dad bought it for me as a Birthday present. My collection grew from there. So, far I have "Queen", "News of the World, and "A Night at the Opera" as well as the "Platinum Collection". I highly recommend any of these. I always save a little money and go to the record store about once every two weeks and pick up a CD. My next purchase will hopefully be "Sheer Heart Attack".
My Queen DVD collection is growing too. I recieved "Greatest Video Hits vol.1" as a Graduation Present. I also have "Live at Wembley" and "Live at the Bowl".


I love John Deacon and Brian May!!!

Jellybean Queen, I really recommend getting all the 70's CDs first. My absolute favorites are Jazz, A Day At the Races and A Night At The Opera. The others are great too.

From the 80's...I personally really like A Kind Of Magic the most, but that's just me.

I have ALL their DVDs too...well, all the afficial ones :)

I wish I had a Best Buy close to my house. But for now the mall is close enough. Just a short Bus ride down the road! that's where our local record store is. I love getting Queen related things as presents or even treating myself by buying a CD. I hope your collection grows. I'm pretty sure it will. I can't stop listening to "A Night at the Opera". My Dad keeps wanting to borrow it, because it has some "Vaudeville" style songs on it and that's what he likes. If you're able to get that CD, you will love it. Trust me!! :-)
