Product description

"pA special box set of Queen's landmark 1977 album News of the World is here, marking the 40th anniversary of the original release. br br The new package includes the original album on CD, plus two further CDs of recently unearthed outtakes and rarities from the band's archives, one of which is a newly created ‘alternative’ version of the whole album – Raw Sessions.p pFor many Queen devotees, this Raw Sessions CD will be the most intriguing component of the new release. Mined deep from longvaulted studio multitrack tapes, this extraordinary parallel album brings to light neverbeforeheard alternative versions of each of the album’s 11 tracks. Every lead vocal is different, as are most of the lead guitar parts and a great many other instrumental details. Here we experience We Are The Champions anew, with many unfamiliar vocal and instrumental elements, and for the first time at its fullrecorded length rather than the edited 1977 album cut. Here also is the chance to discover peak era Freddie Mercury vocals on a track that nobody outside Queen’s inner circle has heard him sing before at all – Brian May’s All Dead, All Dead. The original album version features May himself on vocals. Roger Taylor’s Sheer Heart Attack can be heard with its original longlost guitar intro and uncut ending. Taylor’s other song, Fight From The Inside, is more remarkable in that we hear his demo vocal worked on in his home studio in preparation for the next sessions. p pAnother outstanding feature of this weighty 40th anniversary box is a pure analogue recut of the original vinyl LP, direct from the unmastered analogue master mix tapes. There is also a rich selection of NOTW related memorabilia including three posters and a 60page book of images, mostly previously unseen.p pThe package is completed with a brand new onehour DVD documentary, Queen : The American Dream, created from backstage material filmed during Queen’s 1977 USA News of the World tour. br p"

4.0 out of 5 stars We Will Rock You!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 September 2019
I remember when Queen announced they were releasing this massive, truly 'deluxe' 40th anniversary edition box set of their 1977 album, 'News of the World'. I felt it was money-grabbing, and unneeded.
Then, a year or so later, I found myself eyeing it up when I had the money. I took a chance and bought it. And now I see why it was released.
For a start, if nothing else it provides hardcore Queen fans and avid collectors the chance to get more stuff. And you can still buy the seminal album in other, more affordable, formats.
The box set (as I will refer to it) comes in a very well-made, strong fascimile box, whose top slides off very easily. The front of it is plain, glossy black, with the iconic logo and title (with Frank) upon that. It looks sleek and that's all it needs. The back of the box features a piece of large paper stuck on to the back, meaning it's secure in place (this might not sound important but other large, 'deluxe' reissues of albums have had such a track listing sheet barely hanging on - I'm looking at you, Fleetwood Mac). On this is some information as to the reason of the deluxe edition, and what it contains - track by track.
Inside the box, we see our first piece of memorabillia. A very nicely made reproduction of an 'Access All Areas' press pass for Queen's 1977 U.S. winter tour of this album. It's only a little thing, but still a nice bonus, and doesn't feel like it'll break.
Beneath this we have an open, file-like case, inside of which are three very large posters, three sticker versions of these, and a whole press pack. The stickers I have been using on my laptop for months now - they're very cool, large stickers. The posters are an awesome size, too, and were on the wall of my uni room for my entire first year. They depict the iconic inside and external covers of the album (featuring Frank the massive robot), as well as a promotional poster of one of the stops on their tour.
The press pack contains press images of each band member, and several letters and newspaper reproductions from fan clubs and such. These are truly for hardcore fans, but they are a very nice touch, and overall really cool.
Beneath this, in the main box, we have the newly cut (from the original analogue tapes) 180g black vinyl of the album. It feels very thick, sounds awesome, and features the same gatefold sleeve. The record sleeve is even a reproduction of the box the master tapes first would have appeared in. Little details like this show the band (and record companies, most likely) put a lot of time and effort into such a reissue.
Finally, we have a sixty page, hardcover book, packed with information, liner notes, letters to and from fans, and hundreds of images collated into a beautiful collage of Queen. A lot of these images haven't even been previously released, which is a testament to how exclusive this thing really is. The book is amazing, and such a hearty read! In the back of this book are the 3 CD's and DVD. The DVD is a great, hour-long documentary on Queen, behind the scenes on their NotW tour. The doc has been aired around on the BBC for a little while now, but it's very nice to have it in physical form.
The CD's also have a newly remastered copy of the original album, a CD packed full of alternate takes and edits, and a third with bonus material - such as demos, outtakes and early takes. There's plenty of bonus material here, from an album that's already amazing. Pretty much every installment on the track listing is a great tune here, for sure.
Overall, is it worth £80? Maybe not, but somewhere around £60-£70 and I think it certainly is. Plus, you do get a lot for your money, and whether you love Queen, or just this album, it certainly fills that appetite for more of it.
The guys behind this took so much energy and harnessed it into one awesome box. I am very pleased with this purchase.
