One question though, why didn't you include the single edit of the Rah mix ?

Yay, amazing work again! Perfect versions through extensive audio editing (by far the best quality Cool Cat first demo I've ever heard), you are a sound wizard. And you also provide artwork, which makes your efforts even greater. The chumps at Queen Productions have so much to learn. Thank you CMI :-)

I miss a couple UP versions (Mike Spencer mix, Knebworth mix), but I guess there were too many of them to fit your concept. Not that I'm complaining!

May I ask what your next project will be? :-P Only 4 more to go, here's hoping you don't stop there!

There's always more material around, but he definitely considered these particular tracks to fit his vision for his album version.

Great contribution!!!!!!!! I´ve always liked this album too much for having new and many sound genres in comparison with classical Queen songs. Lots of thanks Mr. CMI.


o.k.

That's the way it was shared back in the day. There's probably no good way to try and patch that.

Hello folks!

1) I don't use remixes featuring additional recordings by third party producers/engineers. Because of that I didn't use UP Mike Spencer mix.
Also I don't use live recordings as a extra contect for the studio albums. Live extras will be featured in the Expanded Collections of live albums...

2) I didn't use radio edit of UP rah mix because it would be too much of the same mix in a row, so I decided to omit it. This radio edit is not a straight cut of the full lengthtrack but anyway isn't really interesting... It would be more useful if something like attached version to be released back in 1999.

Thanks for your work CMI. What is your opinions on the Rah Mix? I always thought it was a good remix.

Thanks for the HS expanded edition, CMI. First time I can listen to the demo versions in such a good quality, what a bliss :-)

Dear CMI, you really make a great work... you are able to transform a 'not well released' album in a 'very good listening' experience.
Hot Space is an album with great songs but (my personal opinion) with very bad arrangments... if they recorded that songs with the same live treatment well... could be a great funk black album!!!

PS: I've got Feel Like in flac... i don't know if is an mp3 converted file.... ask me if you need it ;)


Listening Queen is not an hobby. Is a faith.

^ This album is very different (to others) and very enjoyable for me. Actually the experimental part of this album is Side 1 only (+Cool Cat) as all other songs is a Queen sound delivered in '79-'80 with The Game.
I like the arrangements of Side 1 but of course it will be great to hear/have it in 'live in the studio' arrangement as an alternative. I think John Luongo remix of 'Staying Power' is very close to it with more prominent acoustic drums.

Thank you for what you have done for this and all of the other albums you have remixed. I can't wait to hear what you have in store for the next album release. I am really looking forward to the live remakes, especially Live Killers. That was the album that made me a Queen fan. Keep up the great work.

Wow! :) After listening to the Hot Space Expanded Collection i'm really impressed. Especially the vinyl transfers from Staying Power, Back Chat and Cool Cat have such a good audio quality. Every new Expanded Collection brings joy to the Queen Community. Thank you! :)
Question: Do you know which album will be next?
Have a great day
:)
