    I have a US copy 5E-564 (SP) with "FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY" -- could not find this version on the Discogs. Should I create a new version or could someone point me to which is similar?

      Queen - Greatest Hits
      ————————————
      Queen are a British rock band formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) and John Deacon (bass). Their earliest works were influenced by progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal, but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works by incorporating further styles, such as arena rock and pop rock.
      ————————————
      Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the British rock band Queen, released worldwide on 26 October 1981. The album consisted of Queen's biggest hits since their first chart appearance in 1974 with "Seven Seas of Rhye", up to their 1980 hit "Flash" (though in some countries "Under Pressure", the band's 1981 chart-topper with David Bowie, was included). There was no universal track listing or cover art for the album, and each territory's tracks were dependent on what singles had been released there and which were successful. In 1992, the US version of the album Classic Queen was released following the band's rekindled popularity in the nation.

      I'd argue that Queen's Greatest Hits is the best compilation album ever released, you may think that that statement is completely biased, and i will admit it is. But it doesn't change the fact that almost definitely is the truth. The greatest hits album has been on the UK chats top 100 for the past 970 weeks! (as of 05/11/2021) only beaten by ABBA - Gold and Bob Marley - Legend both with just over 1000 weeks each. it currently sits at 23 and only a few weeks ago was at number 3! This album can be undisputedly be called one of the best compilations by a band of all time and it is a pleasure to listen to with nearly every song a great hit. (haha titles do mean something) It is definitely worth picking up and I even have 2 copies myself.

        The Canadian release had "Under Pressure" but it seems to be incredibly rare to find it in its original release.

          Mine has the printed inner sleeve but with squared corners, not round?

            Well, I have to say that 2016 repress (2xLP) is the worst ever. Lots of noise surface , rare clics and other superficial sounds. I changed twice on my local record store and are all the same. A shame. Nothing better than a 80´s UK copy.

              I'm in the process of uploading my collection on here and have been using the Guinness book of British hit albums as verification (or not!) of a U.K release and the book says that the cat no. is EMYV 30 as opposed to EMTV 30 on t he record and this site.
              I Can't find any reference to to 'Y' bit Anywhere and have checked several additions of the 'hits' books in case it was a typo !
              Can anyone help me please ?
