    Fancy new Queen CD reissues

    So tomorrow A Day At The Races, A Night At The Opera, Queen, Queen II and Sheer Heart Attack are all being reissued in remastered two-disc fancy editions.

    You can get'em solo or through an exclusive Amazon issued boxed set:

    From the Artist

    "A huge amount of work has already been put in behind the scenes to unleash a completely newly mastered set of the original Queen LPs and CDs," Brian May noted. "I know our fans will appreciate the attention to detail, bringing the early albums closer than ever to the magic of the vinyl originals, but with the benefit of up-to-the-minute quality technology."

    Product Description

    Exclusive to Amazon Customers: Queen's first five studio albums remastered in deluxe reissue editions with rare bonus material all in one collectible box with a 24 panel Poster for the ultimate Queen fan.

    Albums included in the box:
    Queen II
    Sheer Heart Attack
    A Night At the Opera
    A Day At the Races

    Queen's 40th anniversary is now upon us, and the band plans to pull out all the stops to celebrate this historic occasion. This yearlong event will be marked by a series of releases, re-releases, special limited-edition items and events around the world. As the centerpiece in the 40th anniversary celebration, Queen's studio catalog is being reissued in a series of deluxe editions. Every note is being tweaked, every piece of artwork is being cleaned, freshened up and resourced, wherever necessary, with the legendary Bob Ludwig doing the remastering, working from the original source material.

    Each studio album will be released in a new two-CD edition, the first containing the updated, remastered original LP, the second disc packed with rarities--and we don't use the term lightly. Some of these gems have never before seen the light of day, even in crappy bootleg form. To cite a particularly fascinating example, five first-album demos recorded at London's De Lane Lea Studios in December 1971 were pulled from the only existing copy.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Hmmm... I think Day at the Races sucks, but the other 4 are worth grabbing the box. (So to speak)
