Ok thank you for your answer. I use verbatim too and I was wondering if there was a better brand. (There's always better but no one ever agrees at the end)
I was pretty sure you had posted a photo of one of the cds of your expanded collection (The Jazz one I think). The photo was shot with the cds put on a Canon printer. I guess it was someone else showing what he had done with the files you had shared.

Thank you again for your awesome work and the qualilty of the artwork.

I've always used Verbatim since I got my first writer in '97.
They still play and read in fine, though the dye is a much darker colour on those than what they make now.
I'd like to think they've improved...

Yes Brians wig, I hope they have and I've always heard the blue ones were just the best after the silver or golden ones (kodak and fnac used to make some but I think they have stopped). Definitely the green ones are awful, especially the no names ones. So verbatim is still my first choice but I've been told about a brand "taiko yuden" that they were the best but I've never tried them. CMI collection is so cool, I'd like to burn it and keep it for long.

Taiyo Yuden ceased production of optical media at the end of 2015. As their discs are no longer available, Verbatim discs are certainly an acceptable substitute. I've never had a problem with Verbatim discs.

Taiyo Yuden were touted as being THE best disc you could buy - and you paid handsomely for it!
That's probably why they ceased production: people were less and less willing to pay the higher price.

That's a pity,

Something I would certainly pay for is superior quality cds. Too bad to have recordings corrected re EQ'd and not having the best cds to burn them. I'll do with the verbatim as I've done till now. I'll see in ten years when I am an aging fan of Queen what will happen to my cds. I'll keep the RAR files on a hard drive, just in case...

Maybe I'll be so deaf, I won't be able to hear any loss and will tell to my boys: "See those CD your old man burnt 10 years ago, how good they still sound!" And my boys will look at each other, silently with that not-long-before-he can't-hear-us look...

^ I don't think n00b will answer your question, so I will...

I don't think that it's really entertaining to listen to a capellas everytime you listen to the album+extras.
Also I think it only works pretty well with complicated vocal parts. I mean songs like Bring Back That Leroy Brown, Bicycle Race, BoRhap and others.

Also if I add an a capella version to the bonus list there will be even more versions of one song in the set. I think it'll be quite boring...

Instrumental version is another story. I really like to listen to instrumentals.

The movie features all Queen music in pretty rough mix and form. The soundtrack album was mixed from scratch with more polished material and sounds much better, even some dialogs there are different to the movie versions. I decided not to use any versions from the movie because it has very weak and thin sound oposed to the album.

Also I think 'The Hero' 2011 mix is great, and to have old movie mix near it is pointless. Even if it features slightly different exclusive elements.

What a good way to start the sunday!
Can't wait to listen it.
it's probably the least listened album of the group.
This is a good chance to re-discover it

Thanks CMI

A Technical question:
When you remaster the tracks, do you use a 94/24 resolution?


Listening Queen is not an hobby. Is a faith.

Yes, indeed it's the least popular album but the music and atmosphere of tracks are great and perfectly suit the movie.
I re-discovered the OST and found the Orchestral Score very enjoyable as well.

I use sample rate of the source (44100 Hz and higher) but resolution always is 32 bit.

The Orchestral Score is a great surprise for me... now Flash is a real OST album

Thank you cmi. I have recently got a means of downloading your collection. So I’m looking forward to catching up on your hard work.
I agree about everyone’s posts about their weakest album.
Personally I prefer Michael Kamen.
