Queen ‎– Radio Ga Ga

Notes:
"Radio Ga Ga" was originally released January 23, 1984 (UK) as the first single from the forthcoming "The Works" album.

It is also the first single to sport Queen's personalised EMI catalogue numbering scheme (QUEEN1 for the 7", 12QUEEN1 for the 12") as well as the band's first release on a cassingle. In 1988 it was re-released as a CD-single.

This grouping assembles the single releases, re-releases and other variations where "Radio Ga Ga" receives A-side/top billing (non-album track "I Go Crazy" was the designated B-side).

The US/Canada Capitol 7'' releases use a shorter edit of "Radio Ga Ga" (4:24) to those issued elsewhere worldwiide on EMI 7'' which use "The Works" album version (5:47).

To clarify: Most comments here refer to the (currently hidden) images of the two alternative sleeves, and came from a release merge. The regular 12" pictured at this point in time is as real as can be, not as fake as can be!

From what I've heard, the extra bit in the top right corner saying "Maxi 45 tours" is a sticker, and not a print. Can anyone confirm this?

Also available as promo with golden stamp in the right corner on the sleeve.
Gold stamp does not represent a promo release, it is added after pressing to standard releases to denote promo copies. So same record as this one.

I think the record was released in 1984 but produced in 1983.

This Radio Ga Ga release (extended) was released 1983 instead of 1984.
1983 is printed on the record label.

these items are completely real , the radio station created its own covers personally and distributed to listeners only made 20 or 30 covers is why they are very rare and they did in a radio station called RADIO MODERNA located in a state of the republic called michoacan many of them do not even come to be distributed and were stored for decades , is why many people doubt its veracity is understandable had not since been seen before , have come to light because the stores of the diffuser they have been cleaned and only a few individuals posses these copies , I have seen several are very nice and certainly are collectibles

picture sleeve issued by Mexican radio network "Grupo Acir" and distributed to listeners as a giveaway.
