In your experience what are the albums you see most often and least often in music stores.

I've seen all of the pre-The Game albums at at least one place. News of the World and Jazz seem to be the rarest though. Of the post-Game albums A Kind of Magic seems to be the most common..I have never seen The Miracle in any store.

The most common around here is definitely the 1992 'Greatest Hits' Hollywood Records version. And the least would be 'At The BBC' because I actually haven't seen it anywhere in years, while I've seen pretty much everything else thanks to Best Buy.

Of the ones I do see, probably 'Rocks' is the least common but still appears occasionally.

I must have a good Best Buy because they generally have at least one of every studio album.. well, one of everything really except Rocks and At The BBC.

Here in Southwest Washington state you can find these pretty easily most of the time in stores:

- Return of the champions
- live killers
- on fire: live at the bowl
- Greatest Hits Hollywood / We will rock you edition
- A night at the opera
- news of the world

you can also find their mainstream dvds pretty easily....

It really depends on where you go.

At Wal-Mart, all you usually see is Greatest Hits, Platinum Collection, ROTC.

At Best Buy you usually see Jazz, NOTW, ROTC, Fire at the Bowl, Live Killers, ANATO, ADATR.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

Most common is Greatest Hits, followed by ANATO.

Least common? Well, I don't even know that the BBC Album exists. I've yet to find a good version of Jazz (all versions I've seen are old and second-handed and crappy), and hmm, I had a bit of trouble when it came to A Kind of Magic.


Queen rocks!

Then you've never been to a used CD store. The Miracle is the one I always find there.

does that make sense?


No.

Used CD's work fine, especially if you play them before you buy them.

Plus, they are usually cheaper.

Same here. You can buy all their albums very easy (well, maybe except for Live at the Beeb). Most of them are around 8 euro's each (3 for 25 euro). And that includes double albums like Wembley and On Fire. Live Killers is always expensive for some reason.

Overhere in The Netherlands you can almost find any commercial album from Queen I to ROTC. The same with all official dvd's.

Sheer heart attack
The works
The miracle

...an the singles: Queen+Vanguard - Flash
Queen+PR - RO/TYMD

Rarest: ANATO

If you can tell me an online music store (except eBay) that applies in Romania too, I would be very happy.

I've had to order news of the world, flash gordan and hot space because I only have a few Queen albums left to get and I never see them.
