Queeen collectors knows very well that the band had issues in almost all the planet. But this is the first time I've came across a Queen pressing from Jamaica. Anotherone bites the dust.
Bites the dust was probably the Queen single who sold more in terms of worldwide copies.. so this maybe is the reason of such obscure pressing.
The catalogue number is EMI 5102, same as the UK one but label is different from the UK one and on it there is SONIC SOUNDS indicated as distributor. This was and I think still is on of the most important Jamaican record distribution company. It should not be an export issue from UK also because the vinyl seems to be different from the english EMI usual one; it's heavier, typical of the jamaican 45 pressings.
check the link below to see a picture of the label.
If you have reports of other Queen jamaican pressing please let me know.

Collecting is everything!!!
