Excellent work as always CMI. Quick question relating to 'Magic' disc 1; am I the only one who can't get it to fit on a CD-R 700mb 80 minute disc? The files give me a total running time of 1hr 20 mins and 06 secs.

'The Works' disc 2 also runs in at 1hr 20 mins and 31 secs. Any help would be most appreciated. Am using Brasero as part of Ubuntu to burn to discs.

You need to use overburning option. 82 minutes can be recorded on 80 min CDR with this option enabled.

Brasero didn't give me this option but K3b did! Thank you so much.

cmi, re:

You CAN, however, SOME players won't play / recognise discs that are over the 80 minute mark and overburning *can* cause a cd-r drive to fail. Well, certainly, in my case, it did.

Great work as always!

Of course you're in the lead of what's to be on these expanded collection CD's, but is there any reason for you not to include stuff like the "The Keep Passing the Open Windows" demo's, There Must Be More to Life Than This or some alterante Thank God It's Christmas versions?


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

1) Available KPTOW demo is not a proper in-line recording... It doesn't suits with all other tracks in terms of sound/quality.

2) If you mean this Orbit mix of TMBMTLTT. I don't use any remixes with additional production of third-party people. They almost always are crap. Of course I will add Queen/Chris Thomas-produced version which was prepared but still remains unreleased... when it will be available.

3) There's no proper alternate version of TGIC. The same for A Dozen Red Roses For My Darling from AKOM.

Thank you VERY much for all the effort that you put into this project. So shame that QP do not bother to release proper deluxe versions...
Just quick question: what is the difference (in ters of sound editing and/or mixing) between extended mix and extended version?

Thanks! And the announcement will be very soon. Now I make some fixes on 'The Miracle'...

RadekQ:
Actually I don't know for sure because some official titles break every rule... In my point of view if the song sounds very differently from the common version (Staying Power, Back Chat, I Want To Break Free) it must be called Extended MIX. If the song features some new parts but not much different from the album version (One Vision, Hammer To Fall, It's A Hard Life) it must be called Extended VERSION. But it's not the case with official titles.

Thank you for your answer!

Of course, the constant quality is one of the things which makes this collection a joy to listen to and I agree that an alternate version or demo should be interesting enough to include.

By the way, I like your remix of I Want to Break Free. Fantastic job!
