That sounds good to me. Just one caveat: I think they should be exclusive to vinyl + VHS sets for a period of 5 years first.

That's exactly the way it should be done! ( except the Higlander Movie ;-) But how big are the chances this will ever happen? QP should employ you...

Keep dreaming.

And if QP would hire someone like that, they'd be bankrupt in a year. This wouldn't even APPROACH the costs in revenue.

Not if they're just digital files, TQ; which is how the recording industry is going, you may have heard.

Only if you believe what you read in the tabloids.

The demand for recorded media has never been so high, record companies are grossing more than ever, and production of records is growing ever cheaper. They know damn well that when they go digital, the illegal downloads will put them out of business in no-time. Besides, it'd render recording-contracts practically useless; doing it by oneself could be much more beneficial in such a scenario.

Nice try, but I dont think this is a good idea at all. First of all, you don't include any discs of outtakes and rarities, IMO the real point of this boxsets thing in the first place.

Then, you include all the original albums, which is fine, but if they are considering this, they MUST give us High Definition music, and by this I mean DVD-A or SACD. Once Queen has already chosen to go with DVD-A, they should stick with it and release all their back catalogue in this format.

You also want a DVD with each album with interviews, a documentary etc. Great point. They should include in each DVD bits of the videos of the concerts for the respective album, interviews at the time, the promo videos and the documentary.

Look for example at Genesis and their brand new box-sets. 3 boxsets with every album in SACD and a DVD with footage from that era. And each boxset has a disc with rarities and a DVD with extras.

I think that's an awesome idea for the boxsets! That plus the rarites and outtakes...would make the boxsets priceless!!

Box set? Box Sets??

Queen Productions is so in touch with the their loyal customers, that they will release GH4 before even considering releasing the box sets or anything from the archives. The 2009 date for the box sets is a lie by Queen Productions.

I can tell QP and Greg Brooks were lying because their lips were moving.

Well.. well... nice list. but eh where are all those old demotapes hidden in these boxes??
All official stuff on re-run? waste of money I think, people who buy this already have it on cd/vinyl.

I meant to include a bonus cd with each album as well as the DVD which would contain alternate versions and demos and the like.

Even the Who managed to get some rarities out 'before I got old'.

Come on Queen...

I'd like it if they were released before I'm dead, how is that??

Exactly! I'd like to hear some rarities, alt-takes, demos and such. Does anybody really want to see some new videos of old tracks? I think it' was a dull idea. I want something I haven't heard a thousand times before.

Tquinn --

Are you on angel dust? Sales of CD's have gone down 40% in the last year alone. The CD is dead. This whole notion of boxed sets is something for the over 35 set who can't use P2P. Hell, Queenonline is selling mp3's even. What they should do -- and what I think they will do, someday -- is set up their own site to sell digital files. If we want artwork, we can buy that, too.

But this notion that the record companies are making money from new releases is bunk. All they have are their back catalogs, which are getting more and more worthless by the year, as digital takes over.

You are the person who is quite frankly insane. You are citing me numbers without presenting me with a source so I can comment on them, and are thus rendering your statement null-and-void.
