Be careful whether your favourites are all on this collection
11 November 2018
Queen are of course a well known entity, so they will be as many stars according to how well you like them, so this is a comment on the package. I've only had a couple of Queen albums in the past but thought I should fill in the collection, also my old albums are vinyl, which tends to jump a bit when played in the car... However, I have been disappointed in the selection on these Best Of cds. Two favourites of mine in particular, The Prophets Song, and Tie Your Mother Down are missing. How could they miss these yet put such poor stuff on Best of 3?? Ok, you can say I should have checked, which is true, but still, if many folk aren't somewhat disappointed with the selection I would be surprised.
Also, after some time listening, not really happy with the remastering. Comments elsewhere cover this, but I'd agree Fat Bottom Girls (cymbal at 1:45 - ugh! Truly shows te shortcomings of digital recording of high frequencies) and Bicycle are not good. Rhapsody not bad.
