Here's an UPDATE of "Made In Heaven":

1) Mother Love (alternate outro mix) is added to CD2
2) Artwork is reworked using better scans. I'm still in search of full size images of 'sunrise' and 'sunset' shots.
3) A Winter's Tale (Cosy Fireside mix) is bettered using different approach to restore the original squeezed dynamics from 2011 release.
4) Description TXT file is added.
5) All FLAC files now feature tags.

Thanks for your great work :)

Are you planning on releasing AKOM with the tracks split?

Wow, more tweaks to AKOM!!!

Thanks in advance for sharing them a individual tracks.

I used to own a German 12" of Pain Is So Close To Pleasure. I loved the record sleeve image, which you have kind of used in your artwork. It brings back great memories. cheers.


I'm a long time queen fan from back in the late 70's.

Favourite albums are Queen II and Blue Rock.

Cheers to everyone from Melbourne, Aus.

Ha! It's your choice. But I decided to leave the original instrumental remix in this collection. Maybe I will change my mind in the future. :)

Well, there's not much additional material for 70's albums, so there will be instrumentals, some old remixes and some new mixes.
For example 'Tie Your Mother Down' needs to be remixed as it's one of badly mixed tracks on the album.

Downloaded both of these and both are brilliant mate, but shouldn't you have "Battle Theme" on AKOM?

"Battle Theme" or "Battle Scene" was under consideration. But in the end I decided to take it off this edition as I think this piece works excellent in context of "Highlander" OST but is not right in context of the album.

Of course, "Battle Scene", sorry my bed was calling me at the time. But I can understand your motivate for not having it on there as it would seem rather out of place.

Do you have separate links for these rather than logging into bootlegzone?

Yes please! I would love to download these but can't get on to the site for one reason or another. I've requested what I needed, and never got an email :(
