5 stars This is a treat for Queen fans big and small, young and old.

We already had Queen at the Beeb for a few decades, wich combined two shows, the band recorded for BBC. Now finally Queen Productions collected and remastered all the songs they did for BBC (sans Mach of the Black Queen).

It's a wonderful collection of songs, where there are a few songs very rare (We Will Rock You (fast) and What a Fool I've Been). Mostly the band plays over the same backing tracks used for the studio-albums. So in fact some songs sound more like a different studio-version, than an actual live version.

The latter songs from (Queen II up to News at the World) sound more live, and have alternate versions of well known songs. All in all, this is a must-have. The 2cd and 3lp version contain all the BBC-recordings, whereas the boxset contains radio-interviews and some live-shows.

Thanks fo releasing this, and a must have for any Queen fan and a musthave for any serious rockfan.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
