I was bored so I start reading Wipedia. In the article about Sheer Heart Attack (the album) I found some interesting things:

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'.

In the article on News of the World is the following.
A version of 'Fight From The Inside' with lead vocals by Mercury 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 May composition titled 'Batteries Not Included' and a Mercury composition titled 'Where Did You Go Now?'.

Does anyone know whether these demos exist? Any info about them? Thanx in advance!

Im pretty sure that the only studio recording of WWRY fast is the BBC version.

Take what your read on the wiki with a grain of salt, k!

For example....for the Sheer Heart Attack sessions, Brian May was in hospital for a lot of the time.

He had to be ill on my favourite album, didn't he?!

Still, the outcome is brilliant.

Wasn't Brian's Boogie just one of the alternate titles of Brighton Rock ?

Why?

Is a text book in school or the news on TV any more reliable? Not at all. It's someone relaying information to someone else, and they can be just as flawed as anyone else. If anything, Wiki is more accurate, because it's updated every day in light of new information.

I'd like to believe that any Sheer Heart Attack demos, providing they exist - of course, will set the light of the day one day.

You really didn't read my post, did you?

How is any other source of information more reliable than Wiki? Wiki is managed by people who are prone to error, just like anyone else.

How many of your high school textbooks have the newly updated information about the definition of a planet? And what does Wiki have to say about it? Check that one for yourself.
