Well, I must say I'm truly impressed with what you've done! These are really amazing takes on the albums, which they deserved. Love the audio quality, love the artwork! Thank you so very much and I'm looking forward to the next album!

cmi, re:

Hard to believe, isn't it? And in all honesty, I believe that The Game is the one album that has really stood the test of time.

At work yesterday, in the office, a radio station played both AOBTD and Save Me. I'm pretty sure it had nothing to do with the anniversary of the album release, but listening to it all again (although not my favourite Queen album by any means), you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was recorded yesterday. The production and the ideas are so incredibly fresh and exciting; there's not a single duffer on there.

Something tells me I'm going to be re-visiting this for a while now........ ;-)

It's hard to believe as it's my year of birth as well :)
One thing I don't like about 'The Game' - it's TOO short. 12 songs would be much better...

Just a curiosity but why did you use the alternative cover of The Game instead of the official one?
As always a great job !!! I can not wait to hear the next release. Thank you!

Which one do you mean as on 'official'...? I used original photo for PDF and alternate (which was used several times on later official releases) for booklet.

 BTW, I'm looking for high quality scans of both these photos taken on the day of CLTCL video shoot.

Ooops! I just see now the pdf! Sorry!
I remember that the alternative cover was used for theCrown Jewels box set and the SACD version. The original was used for several release included the 2011 version.
Thanks for the quick answer!

I don't know if this raw scan could be useful but i try to help.
This is a scan of the CLTCL cover and this is the same photo of The Game cover.
Obviously this is the coloured version but if there is a wizard of photoshop could work for an update of the cover.
