Notes

The only song on this CD performed by Queen is track# 10! This one was first released and remastered in 1991 as a b-side to the "Headlong"- (Vinyl-Maxi-)Single. Here we have the original 1973 version.
Tracks 1 and 4 are also featuring the band members
but belong to the Freddie Mercury Catalogue!
First released in 1973.
The following tracks have most likely Peter Straker on vocals, which isn't mentioned anywhere:2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9.
Tracks 8, 11, 12, 13, 14 are performed by the band "Smile", which was the predecessor group to "Queen".
The sound on this recording is far below standards!

This CD is utter crap - AVOID! All tracks sound like 12th generation compact cassette copies, and most of them are fairly easily to be found in pristine quality on the original LPs (Mind you, I'm talking about the same recordings offered on this horrible CD albeit in far superior quality). Why this CD has been widely distributed for many many years without the artists involved taking legal action is beyond me.
Added to that, some of the Peter Straker tracks have no Queen involvement at all.
