I finally decided to sort out the loft space at home and found a few items i bought back in the 1990's. There were five items which stood out and i was wondering just how common they were, please can anyone advise?

1.The Cross- Cowboys and Indians (continous play cassette).
2.Queen- Who want to live forever (cassette) 7 inch version, LP version, Piano version + Don't lose your head.
3.Queen- Greatest Flix 1 & 2 (Video CD) released 1994.
4.Queen- A Night at the Opera (Original Master Recording)- notes advise- 'Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, in a testamnet to the talents and legacy of Freddit Mercury and Queen, will be donating preceeds from this and all future Queen titles released on Ultradisc II to the Mercury-Phonenix Trust in London, establshed in 1992 to assist in finding a cure for the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrom'...... I never saw any further releases in this format.
5.Brian May- Back to the Light- Gold Pressing to commemorate the 1993 Tour.... advises limited to 10,000 pressings....did they all sell?

£20

2.Queen- Who want to live forever (cassette) 7 inch version, LP version, Piano version + Don't lose your head.

Never heard of such a thing in the UK

3.Queen- Greatest Flix 1 & 2 (Video CD) released 1994.

Not sure. Probably completists only given subsequent DVD releases. Is this official or some Korean bootleg?

4.Queen- A Night at the Opera (Original Master Recording)- notes advise- 'Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, in a testamnet to the talents and legacy of Freddit Mercury and Queen, will be donating preceeds from this and all future Queen titles released on Ultradisc II to the Mercury-Phonenix Trust in London, establshed in 1992 to assist in finding a cure for the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrom'...... I never saw any further releases in this format.

£20 - NOTW & The Game also released in this format

5.Brian May- Back to the Light- Gold Pressing to commemorate the 1993 Tour.... advises limited to 10,000 pressings....did they all sell?

Yes, and 10,000 is quite a lot. £10 as there's nothing different other than the colour of the disc and the sticker on the front.

The Who Wants To Live Forever cassette single sounds to me that it was made in Australia and would be worth around £20-£30.
The Cross cassette single £15-£20
Back to The Light CD £15-£25.
