Of course the music is good but...,
This review is from: Singles Collection: Volume 4 (Audio CD)
The whole idea of these box sets baffles me, but at least in the previous three installments Queen (or rather their company) have chosen the best possible route within the given framework: giving us the rare B-sides, which would be - to many of us - the only reason to buy these sets. However, with this final bunch, they suddenly leave that idead all behind, leaving out the few non-album tracks that were left, and giving us a collection which really has no reason of being at all. Why? Either it is because of a stupendous lack of insight in what the fans want, or it is because they want to p*ss us off. Either way, it really shows the lack of respect Queen has for their fans. This coming from someone who really is one.

I also agree with you from a Fan point of view. Queen production has to give us something soon that can made up for all the wrongs from the past. Especially a real (rare) collectors box and some unreleased videos. Hopefully something will happen now with the new record company Universal on board...and for the 40th anniversary 2011? Let's hope so.

I think the problem with The Singles Box sets is Why the hell didn't they put the 12" versions in as they were at it. This project is extensive and with a little extra leverage they could have done this. It would be a nice surprise for fans spending hard earned dosh on them. The Clash did a fantastic Singles Collection, all the 12"s were there, and anything else that was released as a single. I have the Elvis Costello Singles Box Sets and it's 'all there' too! Ok it does say 7" but in these days of Digital Domain who cares. For example it should have been 'Radio Ga Ga', 'I Go Crazy' 'Radio Ga Ga' 12" version and 'Radio Ga Ga' Instrumental version on that particular disc. Why come so close and then stop!! It baffling. Do the folk compiling these sets realize Queen fans just love one thing and that's Queen music. All of it!! We want it all! I love Queen and I have been a fan for 26 years, saw them live and have 273 Queen items in my collection. To me they are the best live band ever. Freddie was the best vocalist, songwriter in rock ever! There are only two Rock Stars. Freddie Mercury and Elvis Presley!! Anyway maybe someday "we will, we will" get the 12" Single versions!! By the way the new GH I & II sound fantastic after Bob Ludwig's Remastering! Go get 'em!!
