    Default Queen gets the remastered treatment.

    Most of the Queen albums are being re-released in September on 180g. There's a box set too. The best price I've found for the individual albums is 14.99.
    • All 15 hit studio albums sourced from the original master tapes
    • Mastered by Bob Ludwig
    • Half-speed lacquers cut at Abbey Road Studios

    Strangely not listed on Amazon yet.

    I may have to pick up a couple of those.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    I thought that as well, until I recalled how crap some of them actually are. Hot Space? No thanks.

    I assume this is the coloured vinyl issues? Some of them look really cool, and Queen II is pressed on
    a single-sided white disc and a a single-sided black disc. Made in Heaven and Innuendo will be available
    fully on (double) vinyl for the first time.

    The seperately sold albums will all be on black vinyl. The box set looks tasty. Hot space was the only bad album they made.

    Only really interested in II (which I can listen to all day long) and Greatest Hits which I can sing along to all day long!

    I love the first few albums and might be tempted to go for 1 + 2

    I saw them twice in the 80's.....great live.

    I actually liked 'Hot Space' but it's of its time, I especially like Action This Day, May was fannying about with keyboards, make this a very 80’s song, but I like it, it also has a cracking 'fat' sound, especially Deacon's bass, I may buy 'Jazz' depends on price though as to whether I'll pick up anymore.

    Anyone got a hold of any of these yet? I'm looking at getting Innuendo as it was only an edited
    single LP on release (which goes for a fortune on the usual websites) but the new one is a double
    LP with full length versions of the songs. Interested in the sound quality of these releases.

    I've ordered A Night at the Opera. I've never owned that one on vinyl.

    I've got the EMI 100 (1997) release of that, and the EMI "The Millennium Vinyl Collection" (1999)
    release of A Day at the Races, both of which are very good pressings. I'm gonnae take a punt on
    this new release of Innuendo as it was never available with the full length versions of the songs
    back in 1991.

    It finally arrived and whilst the quality of some of the songs leaves something to be desired, the quality of the
    pressing and the sound is fantastic. The vinyl itself is also superb.
