Hello!

On my edition of the Hot Space CD, there is a pause in Back Chat. A friend of mine, who is also a Queen-fan has also the same pause on his CD. But a couple of days ago he told me that there is no pause in Back Chat on the 20 years Hollywood-edition.

I got the LP, but I don't have a good recordplayer.. Anyway. Does anybody know if there's a pause on the LP..?

And have most of you the pause or not on the CD?

Thanks...

Where in the song is said pause?

This is probably in regards to the pause in the beat after the line "scream and shout" around 2:54. It's there on the Hollywood and 2001 remaster album versions, as well as slightly earlier in the single mix. It's probably somewhere on the 12" mix too.

Correct.

It IS on the US Hollywood 1991 CD

It IS NOT on my UK EMI CD

Anybody know the story on this? Probably really boring studio error, but I am now curious. I never noticed it before. But that's probably because I was so entrenched on how great the guitar work & vocals are on this song.

That's very odd. Is yours from the 1994 remasters? Also, could you possibly share a clip of that section to show how it's different? There might be an edit which someone can recognize or it might turn out that's an alternate mix, like the Hollywood version of I Want It All.

Edit: or do you mean the drums and such keep going through the sustain? (if that's the right word)

This is very very odd: My EMI 1994 remaster has a pause at 3:35 min. That's why I kept my old 1982 original CD. I always thought it's just a mis-pressing.

If it is really after the line "scream and shout" around 2:54. That pause is on the demo of Back Chat as well, so I guess that pause is meant and correct.

3:35? *listens again*

There's no pause on mine there.. after "criticizing all you see"? Nope, no pause on the 2001 version.. checking the 1991 again.. nope, not there either.

So we have one version missing any pauses and one with the pause in the wrong place? LOL

*sigh*

Okay, here's those two parts via the Hollywood 1991 version, which are the same but louder on the 2001 Japanese remaster:

So I assume this is how it should be..

Wrong place? I don't need a pause anywhere in a song :-)

But there should be one! It's apparently even in the demo. hehe. And the single mix on GVH1.

I edited my previous post so I'll add this here too:

Yes, the pause I was thinking about is at 3.35, and it's on the 1994 remasters. After "Criticizing all you see, Back_(pause)_Chat"

I think it's pretty cool actually..

But weird it's not on every release.

It would be great if someone could check out the old LP(s).

Thanks for your research!

Exactly - the same mistake is on my CD. It's not on my old 1982 CD where Back Chat has no pause at all.

Thanks!

Interesting that there is no pause from the 1982 CD. Then there's probably not any pause on the LP either...?

(I didn't know there was any CD's in 1982, I thought they started with CD's in 1986, or something).

Well, thanks a lot!! :)

I have wondered about the pause in Back Chat for about 10 years, so it's great to finnaly find out about it!

No...There's no pause on the 1987 uk pressing or the original 1982 vinyl.

I have that same problem with that 'pause' thing, thought I was the only one, lol.

Edit; for the people who still want to know how it sounds ;), a bit of my 'pause' version.

Hmm, okay. I don't suppose one of you could share a clip of this 3:25 pause then? A little before and a little after? I'm curious as to how it sounds...

Ok, just heard the "pause" on Daniel CD. It's just a transfert error, a mastering error, a mispressing.. or whatever error you want. It's obviously not on the LP nor the UK or Japanese remasters.

OK, the Daniel CD is obviously a mistake back...chat, but the pause after "scream and shout" is meant to be, and i´m shure it´s on every edition. They perform the song live with that pause, and it makes sense. But the Daniel example...outch!

Take care
