Queen - News Of The World - 40th Anniversary Edition

Pre Order link: https://queen.lnk.to/NOTW40

Set for release on November 17th 2017 Queen are releasing a 40th Anniversary News Of The World album Box Set

Queen always produce quality products and this looks every bit of what we've come to expect from a Queen release.

There's going to be a limited edition vinyl picture disc only available from pre-order

At a price tag of £112 what do we get?

The new package includes the original album on CD, plus two further CDs of recently unearthed out-takes and rarities from the band's archives, one of which is a newly created ‘alternative’ version of the whole album – Raw Sessions.

A big highlight I'm looking forward to is Freddie Mercury vocals on a track that nobody outside Queen’s inner circle has heard him sing before at all – Brian May’s All Dead, All Dead.  The original album version features May himself on vocals. Roger Taylor’s Sheer Heart Attack can be heard with its original long-lost guitar intro and uncut ending.

The third CD has many tracks available else where but such as the BBC sessions found on the Queen Air release

The packagehas one-hour DVD documentary, Queen : The American Dream, created from backstage material filmed during Queen’s 1977 USA News of the World tour.  In November that year, Queen embarked on another headlining US tour.  

The highly respected British radio and TV presenter Bob Harris, complete with full film crew, followed their journey as part of a proposed documentary that has remained incomplete and unreleased – until now.  The crew had unlimited access to the band on and off stage, in the recording studio and during rehearsals.  

This one-hour documentary includes superb live footage of Queen at the Houston Summit in December.  

Many fans would have liked to have seen the release of Houston 1977 full concert but I guess we can't have everything.

Included is also a 60 page book full of unreleased pictures
