Re-cut of LP is fantastic. Bob Ludwig 2011...pointless. CD2 is awesome (nothing sounds the same and there's lots of surprises) and CD3 is just filler, barring the instrumentals. I've not watched the DVD yet, but I'm guessing it's what was on the BBC a couple of weeks ago. Presentation is lovely, the extras are nice. Was £110 from HMV, but it didn't cost me as I was given the money to buy it for my birthday :)

Its not quite the same as the BBC broadcast since there is no mention of Adam anywhere. There is some other changes too but I'll let you discover them in due course. :)

The RAW sessions stuff I really liked, especially Spread Your Wings and Who Needs You in which it sounded to me like Freddie and John were having great fun in the studio.

First proper unboxing film popped up. Look what they decided to use as inner sleeve for the album. Another little surprise.

Nice one! Will be watching tomorrow :)

The RAW sessions are sublime - loved every minute of them, and it just made me appreciate even more the work that went in to one of my favourite albums!

It's 2005. Some guy says he has a complete alternative version of News Of The World, including a live version of Sleeping On The Sidewalk. It's $200. Do you want it? It's all perfect studio quality. I'll tell you, after hearing it just now, I would have gladly paid that. Spread Your Wings might be worth the price alone. Freddie's vocals are extraordinary. Tears of joy inducing extraordinary.

For anyone in the US who hasn't ordered the set yet and might be interested, I just found a great price for it at ImportCDs.com. As I write this, they're asking 108.99 for the set. But, when you put the item in your basket and enter the promo code of TAKE10, it will take 10% off the box meaning you'll pay just over $100 for the box with shipping!

For me Spread your Wings and Who Needs You are the highlights- but it is all amazing. Took me back to being 13 again and listening to it for the first time on day of release...!

Just watched the unboxing video and I must say that it looks awesome! Unfortunately, I'm still waiting to receive my boxset and then I have to wait until December 5th that I'm allowed to unpack it.

The unboxing video raised one question with me: The posters that are included, were the part of the original presskit or are they extra with the boxset? One of them specifically mentions an advertisement of the Houston show. Probably wishfull thinking, but can this be a hint for a very soon to be release?


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

Is it much different from the LPs we all bought back in '77?
The way I see it is it's just a generation higher than what would have been sent to the record plants for cutting.
If I'm wrong, I'm open to correction!

I have just watched the DVD and there are some notable differences. No spoiling but around 90% is from the BBC tv version but there are some new or extended bits and the ending is the real surprise. Oh, check out the menu which is amazing as well.
