Queen | Forever | Vinyl 4LP Box Set

  • Sale
  • $ 79.98

Queen Forever is a thrilling showcase for exclusive new Queen recordings but equally as much a paean to the extraordinary musical achievements of John Deacon, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and the late Freddie Mercury, whose singular talent we again get to marvel at through this meticulously presented 36 track collection.

 

The original 36 track 2CD Queen Forever release is now available as a strictly limited 4LP vinyl box set which includes an additional 12" single bonus disc exclusive to the set featuring a special William Orbit mix of the only recently heard Freddie Mercury track –Let Me In Your Heart Again." The B-side of the 12" single has a further bonus feature exclusive to this box set _ a laser etching of the box set cover illustration.

 

Distinguishing itself as the first Queen album to feature new Freddie Mercury led tracks since the band's 1995 Made In Heaven album, Queen Forever brings out into the light the long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson "There Must Be More to Life Than This," an unfinished Mercury-Queen track "Let Me In Your Heart Again" originating from the band's The Works album recording sessions (featured on this vinyl package in a newly available William Orbit mix), and a new ballad version of Mercury's first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, "Love Kills."

 

The rest of the package mixes Queen hits, classic tracks, and celebrates the extraordinary musical path of one of the world's greatest rock bands. Reaching back as far as 1974 with fan favorite –Nevermore," a Freddie Mercury song originally included on Queen II, Queen Forever progresses to feature songs that spotlight the band's songwriting prowess, studio experimentation and remarkable development, and is completed with latter-day Queen hits, including '91's no. 1 "These Are The Days Of Our Lives" and '95's "Too Much Love Will Kill You," together with the poignant "A Winter's Tale," recorded during Freddie Mercury's final Queen recording sessions in Montreux in 1991.
