If you're looking for this record, i recommend the first UK pressing. I have the YAX 4623-5 BLAIR RULES, and man it just sounds so good.

I have an LP 180 gr , dated 2018, Made in Europe. It's Virgin EMI licences by Universal International to DE AGOSTINI Publishing. In the above I see a similar VIrgin EMI De Agostini, but Japan version. There is no barcode. Any idea which release is this?

I just picked up this UK 1st pressing in the expensive section of a large vintage lp store. Amazing condition! Got it home and was blown away by the sound in each track . I am so happy I found this rare gem! I highly recommend this copy!

I have this exact Copy one White Vinyl...was published in 1973...with emc 3006 and YAX.4623 and .4624 on the label...on site 1 there is something like QQO,-A, and on site 2 QQO,-B, pressed...haven't seen that one here on discogs...so I hope you can help me identify that version...thanks in advance :)

Very strange - I have this record (with Matrix Variation 3, as above), but the German sleeve as here > https://www.discogs.com/Queen-Queen/release/1647251. Hmmmm, I'm confused.

There is a contemporary contract pressing of this LP. Cover same. Label has a raised 'platform' just in from the outer edge about 6 mm wide including slope down. Matrices (dead wax) are (all clockwise): A (upside down to the label): EMC 3006 YAX 4623 A//2 1 1 (but backwards) 5 A (upside down) HUGGY POO KISSY KISSY (hand scratched). B: EMC 3006 YAX 4624 B//2 1 2 7 KATHY PAT SUE KIP JOHN RAY A Comparing with Polydor pressings I would suggest it is a Polydor contract. Label same.
