This probably isn't much of a thing to post,but as a Queen fan,i'd thought it'd be best to post and share anything about Queen.

I just recently got the GPT album at a used book and video store for just 5 dollars,and man---is it great!

11 classic and sweet sounding tracks by Fred himself.

The title track sounds a little different from the video song,but just as good.

Exercises in free love was a nice but unusual operatic effort from Fred,did he sing this before or after he did that opera with that woman(Sorry,I always forget her name.)

The other songs from Mr.Bad guy are re-worked with a neat funky beat even though the originals sounded better.

I thought i'd have to go throuhg ebay or a specialty store to get this rare collectable,but I just happened upon it. How sweet can that get?

TGP rocks!

Really? Never knew that. I'm just saying it was hard for me to find,and I thought it was. Ah well,it's still a good thing to collect right?

Actually nowdays if you buy it new, you get a 12th track too.. another remix of Living On My Own. I think sometimes it's listed on the cover, other times not.. because it was added later.

And this version with the 12th track stupidly wasn't included in the big Freddie box, and I don't believe that particular remix is there otherwise or on any other release.

You mean you didn't enjoy the new "Your Kind Of Lover"? It's very difficult to stay in the same key throughout the whole song!!!

(Sarcasm ends now)

They should have just put the original versions on it.
