4 stars I guess I'll be the first to review this, although it seems almost pointless now, 21 years later. I say that mainly because this box was only released in limited quantities, and was never re-issued on CD. This release contains 14 remastered and repackaged records, starting with the band's debut, "Queen" in 1973 and going up to their latest release "The Works" in 1984.

This really is a beautiful box and contains, along with the records, a full color book with all album information, a map showing where the band had played live in concert, and another small book showing all of the band's touring equipment, lighting rig, etc. Most importantly, this comes with a final record that collects all of Queen's NON-ALBUM B-SIDES. These include "See What A Fool I've Been" (1974), "A Human Body" (1980), "Soul Brother" (1981), " I Go Crazy" (1983), and "Blurred Vision" which was at the time of release (1985) Queen's newest B-side. This is basically an instrumental mix of the new Queen single "One Vision" which also appears here a year before showing up on Queen's next studio album in 1986. Also included is Queen's ONLY non-album A-side "Thank God It's Christmas."

Die hards have to have this just because....casual fans may want to track it down on eBay, as you may find it cheap and it contains every Queen song released between 1973 and 1985. The copies that are really expensive are the first 500 which were signed by all four members of the band!!!!!!
