Just received a copy of this through a seller here. I have no reason to think the seller listed it wrong. Everything checks out to be this release, except I have a slightly different runout.

What do you value this LP? I have a similar LP except the label is the same for side one and two.

I have this LP with hand etched THIS LR'S SHIT? on the runout of side 1. Otherwise, everything is as usual: BLAIR'S on both sides. What did Chris Blair mean?

This is where you need to go for an OG copy. It blows away anything released in the US. Beautiful soundstage.

Can anyone tell which Queen LP or cassette sounds better? From what year they began to press thin LPs?

I have this without picture inner sleeve. All other identifiers match (YAX 5063-2, hand-etched BLAIR'S etc) including the images. The inner sleeve might have been changed be previous owners or is there a version with white inner sleeve? It has a marking "4912 000 1242/W/34/75".

I originally bought this because I wanted Bohemian Rhapsody on a record that wasn't a compilation, because that apparently matters to me. I'm so glad I did! I've discovered songs you often neglect when you think about Queen. I had such a blast listening to this record, so much so, while listening to this record, that nothing (else) really matters to me. Pun very much intended.
