This pops up from time to time on our local version of eBay.

Any ideas?

Reading the description, that were my thoughts also. Pretty sure it's a live thing. Can't imagine they did stuff like that, combining songs, in the studio. € 3.200,- is a bit too much for me to take the gamble :)


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

So it’s a number of live tracks...but for what purpose? It doesn’t match any release (or proposed release) afaik.

Interesting, but just too expensive.

It says it has two rock and roll medleys. Looks like Rainbow outtakes to me.


Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

So, full of inaccuracies and too expensive.

As I said, it pops up from time to time. Apparently the first time it was listed dude wanted $12,500 kiwi dollars for it.

Still no idea why it exists, and for what purpose.

If he's been touting it for a while, it shouldn't take much interest to get more info - or even a minute of recording.

Almost every thread in the Serious forum undoes all the magic of my 4 decades of Queen fandom.

Sorry - that was for literally any other thread. Dunno why it ended up here.
