Until all the albums are re-released I'd imagine! It's all part of the 40th anniversary celebrations.

Not really fair to call it a dead horse: it's the first proper remaster we've had in the UK since the albums hit CD. The actual work on the music has been excellent, but the bonus content pretty run of the mill.

The bonus tracks are a bit underwhelming again, too many live tracks that have been released before for my liking. Although i do love the live version of Staying Power. Totally transforms the track from the studio version.

Deep cuts is a bit disappointing as well. Any ideas who compiled this one?

Lol Brian May probably - whenever you get one of his dud tracks ressurected it always makes me suspicious. However, Dead On Time is an awesome track that is well worth a revist - I'm one of the few people who rates Jazz as an album.

Nice to see Feelings Feelings get a proper release, although why they've put a live version of We Will Rock You (fast) on and not the BBC session we all want is anybodys guess.

So, pretty much as we were last time around - a couple of good things, and a lot of stuff we already have.

A much improved selection of bonus tracks, some genuinely new stuff in there. Also a lot of retreads and just not enough per album.

A new BBC 2-part documentary called 'A Certain Band Called Queen' is scheduled to be shown in the coming weeks, apparantly. They are saying it contains a lot of previously unseen stuff. Here's hoping.

MAJOR BBC TV DOCUMENTARY

Unseen footage and rare interviews to celebrate 40th Anniversary / Broadcast on BBC Two on 29th and 30th May 2011

Queen continue to celebrate their 40th anniversary in regal fashion with the broadcast of a major two part BBC Two TV documentary ‘Queen: Days of Our Lives’ which sees Roger Taylor and Brian May looking back at the band’s incredible career in candid detail for the first time.

Showing on BBC Two at 10pm on 29th and 30th May the two one hour shows explore the remarkable story of Brian, Roger, John Deacon and Freddie Mercury - looking into the early struggles, huge obstacles, success, arguments, breakups, triumph, tragedy and an enduring legacy – all against a backdrop of brilliant music and stunning live performances. With an extensive archive of unseen footage (the producers uncovered Queen's first ever TV performance, missing believed wiped, and shown here for the first time) plus remarkable archive interviews with Freddie Mercury, the documentary is the band’s story in their own words – a compelling journey told with intelligence, wit, plenty of humour and painful honesty.

The documentaries cover each of the band’s studio albums, their legendary world tours of the 70’s and 80’s as they conquered South and North America and Asia, Live Aid and their enduring success since the passing of Freddie leading up to the present day and a popularity that continues to grow yearly. The Sun annointed them ‘Britain’s Best Loved Band’ earlier this year.

‘Queen: Days of Our Lives’ is produced by Rhys Thomas (the comedian who famously broke the Mastermind all time record points score with a specialist subject of Queen) and Simon Lupton, and is directed by the renowned director Matt O’Casey.

Rhys Thomas comments, “We have set out to make the definitive Queen documentary. It's a funny, honest, inspiring and ultimately tragic account of ‘a certain band called Queen’, as told by the band themselves. We tell the story of four students who met in West London, slogged hard and conquered the world, ultimately changing rock music forever.”

The band will be previewing the documentaries in a rare radio interview as they guest live on the Chris Evans BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show on May 27th. Brian and Roger will also attend the 9th anniversary celebration performance of their hit musical We Will Rock You on the evening of Tuesday May 31 at The Dominion Theatre with Brian performing with the cast.

I'm going to have to start on these. I only have the ancient CD back catalogue.

With these, the Sabbath deluxe editions, the Floyd remasters and the Nick Cave stuff I'm buying more (old) new music than ever!

I hope this documentary lives up to what it promises - notably that it covers "each of the band's studio albums". Every previous Queen documentary I can think of, good and bad, will only briefly cover the difficult recording of the first album, then jump to the success of Seven Seas and Killer Queen, then go forward to BoRhap, skip quickly through the rest of the 70s and end up focusing on the stadium years and Freddie's death.

My wife made the very same comment about me buying more old stuff than new!

Sort of. You're meant to buy this and then put the issues in it - it contains the first five.
