Queen to re-release entire catalog on vinyl

Post by Baz on Thu Oct 30, 2008 6:13 am






Queen have announced that they will re-release all of their studio albums on vinyl over the next two years.

The album packaging will feature original album details as well as bonus posters and pictures. This will be the first time all of Queen's albums will be available on vinyl.

The Hollywood Records re-releases will span the band's career, from their 1973 debut self-titled album with singer Freddie Mercury to 2008's 'Cosmos Rocks', featuring Paul Rodgers on vocals.

Hollywood Records will release a new "wave" of records every six months. “The First Wave” consists of 'A Night At The Opera', 'A Day At the Races', 'Sheer Heart Attack', 'Queen' and 'The Cosmos Rocks'.

“The Second Wave” will be available in spring 2009 and includes an edition of the rare gold-foil stamped 'Queen' album, 'Flash Gordon', 'News Of The World', 'A Kind of Magic' and 'Innuendo'.

Meanwhile, the band have announced that their concert film 'Queen + Paul Rodgers: Let the Cosmos Rock' will screen in 425 cinemas across the US on November 6.

The film features footage from their recent free concert in Kharkov, Ukraine’s Freedom Square, which drew a record audience of more than 350,000.

Read about this the other day, i use to own all the vinyl records, but cashed them in just after Freddie died, and as they were original first day copies, i made a mint. I have all the Queen stuff on CD these days, in fact i don't even own a record player.
