not that i would not like Freddie's solo stuff, but the more often i see this tracklisting, the more i just shake my head about that thousands of 'unnecessary' remixes. maybe we should use some of the threads to dicuss, what we'd've done different? ;p

Is this re-mixing, extended versions etc what Brian May talks about on his website?
He made some comment about not having any say in the album and is unhappy about the way it is being packaged, or words to that effect.

I would assume so. There are just far too many remixes of Freddie tracks already. Do we really need more?

A far better tribute to Freddie's music was released in 2000: http://213.159.8.214/qph/albums/freddie/otherrelfreddiesolo01.jpg

I guess there is always money to be made. I wonder if Freddie would have ok'd a release like this when he was alive?
I am guessing not.

most obviously he wouldn't have agreed indeed. but sadly he can't stop those bloodsuckers from releasing tons of crappy remixes of his work :(

To be quite honest I'd rather buy the complete collection of Pinky and The Brain cartoons than that. Will I buy the set? Maybe. Maybe not.

i just won’t buy this shiity product.
i’mtally against this if there were original songs on it with unreleased songs.
maybe then i would buy it.
but surely not now.
there are still songs like
1-MONEY CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS,1984
2-YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE,1985
3-VICTORY (+ MICHAEL JACKSON) 1982
4-THE MAN FROM MANHATTAN,1974
5-THERE MUST BE MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS
(+ MICHAEL JACKSON)
6-TIME (live versuion from musical time,1988)
7-IN MY DEFENCE (live version from the musical tim3,1988)
8-born to rock n roll (live version from..1988)

15- --
16-STATE OF SHOCK (+ MICHAEL JACKSON) 1982
17-THRILLER (+ FREDDIE MERCURY) 1981
18-WHEN THIS OLD TIRED BODY WANTS TO SING,1988
to be released as an album would be worth to buy.
or

on 2 lp 3 dvds 2 cds.
this certainly i would buy.

There's a version of thriller with Freddie?
To what extent is he on it...
...or is this another one of those after-the-fact compilations?


You just can't beat the reasonably priced mosquito repellant OFF.
