I know I posted something like this a while back but here it goes again.

I know the 100 worldwide rarities list by heart but the list is almost 10 years old and i know that within does years, other rarities and unusual vinyl issues and cds have surfaced that werent known at the time. Also, some items on the list must have gone down in value and others had gone up. I know there are a lot of collectors hereand im just wondering what u guys thought are the rarest Queen records?? The blue BoRhap vinyl is the #1 on the list with all the goodies it came along with it, but i believe that this is probablky not the rarest Queen record anymore or the most valuable, I would have to say that in my opinion it would have to be the Red Vinyl Shear Heart Attack Japanese Promo. Ive been collecting queen records ans well as other bands since i was 12 and in almost 10 years of collecting I have never seen this Red vinyl and at the moment its is more valuable that the blue borhap. So what do u guys think??

Maybe something from this list is still "cream de la cream" of the collectors dreams:

Thanks Serry, Ive looked at that site before and ive learned alot that i didnt know.I believe acetates do count but i dont know why not a single one was listed in the 100 rarities list from record collector or even test pressing, a lot of other others had them in their list ike The Smiths.

have a look at my site

www.queenmuseum.com

yes acetate count even if they are in so few copies around.. Test pressings should be "easier" to find depending on the title. Blue borhap is still in number one dreamings of every queen collectors even if there are some obscure colored vinyls which may be rarer than it. For example the grey Israeli Game LP or burgundy vinyl of AKOM from New Zealand. But there's the suspect they are custom test presisng i.e. made for error or inside job from people at the pressing plant. This means that almost impossible to find and I won't put them at a top 100 new list as Record Collector did for U2 rarities recently. They cannot stop the collectors in believing they can reach a good collection without being millionaire!!
