ALL 15 HIT STUDIO ALBUMS SOURCED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPESMASTERED BY BOB LUDWIGHALF-SPEED LACQUERS CUT AT ABBEY ROAD STUDIOSPRESSED ON HEAVYWEIGHT 180 GRAM COLORED VINYL WITH A LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED 108 PAGE HARDBACK BOOKLPs ALSO TO BE AVAILABLE INDIVIDUALLY ON 180 GRAM BLACK VINYL15 albums? Queen always had a special fondness for vinyl, the medium in which they first began to create, around 1970. As a matter of principle, every Queen studio album was offered at the time of original release on vinyl, even well into the era when CD's had taken over as the medium of choice for most of the public. However, the final two albums,'Innuendo' and'Made In Heaven' were actually formatted primarily with the CD in mind, with a longer running time, so the contents had to be edited down to fit them on to the two sides of a vinyl album. Now, specially for this edition, for the first time, these two albums have been cut at full length as double vinyl LP's - four sides each making up a vinyl set that is complete in every way.
The box-set offers many other special features. Most noticeable is the colored vinyl: designed for collectors, each album has been given a different color, in keeping with its original artwork, giving a unique record-deck experience. The color discs have been custom-produced especially for this set, using new material technology which ensures the sound quality is uncompromised. There are more surprises in the box set;'Queen II' originally never had a designated'A side' or'B side' - but'Side White' and'Side Black'.For this new edition, the album has been cut on two separate discs, black and white, each with a custom etching on the reverse side, a nice bonus for collectors. The collection has been five years in the making. Throughout this time Queen's production team has worked extensively on all stages of this painstaking mastering process. The first step was the tape research; locating and confirming the correct versions and best sources for all tracks. Most notably, Under Pressure, plus five tracks on the'Innuendo' album, were improved hugely after the discovery of better sources during this period.
Particular attention was paid to the original releases to ensure that nothing was lost or changed for the worse by reverting to earlier sources. The 18 vinyl LP box set comes with a lavishly illustrated 12 x 12 inch 108-page hardback book which features introductions to each album, quotes from Queen themselves, hand-written lyrics, rare photographs, memorabilia, and information on singles and videos - all made possible with unlimited access to Queen's own archive plus the personal archives of Brian May, Roger Taylor and some generous fans.
