Made in Heaven?,
This review is from: 40 Years of Queen (AN OFFICIAL PUBLICATION) (Hardcover)
When I pre-ordered this item, I thought it would be forever delayed - a mirage of a book that might be released some time this year, the 40th anniversary of Queen. I ordered it on a whim, and hoped for the best. I was shocked by what a beautifully presented book it was when it arrived - larger than life - on my doorstep. This product has exscelled my expectations in both its writing, photographs, and memorabilia. The book is not written by Queen, just a foreward from Brian and Roger, but the style of the journalist who has thread a miread of rare and previously unseen photos together into a chronological prose is second to none. The re-created fan memorobilia from the Archives is wonderful: almost each page cointains a fold-out poster from the 70s, an invite to the New Orleans opening party, a "Hot Space" cube... things you never knew existed, but your life, if you are an avid Queen fan, will be enriched by these mementos, not to mention the Interview Disc too.
