The Freddie Mercury Solo Collection is...

Freddie’s three solo albums-

Mr Bad Guy
The Great Pretender
Barcelona

Two Singles Collections-

1973 - 1985
1986 - 1993

The Instrumentals-

Three Rarities CD’s
The David Wigg Interviews CD

The DVDs

The Video Collection
The Untold Story

It all comes in a very nice hard back book.

The CDs

The solo albums are brilliant in themselves, lets face it, you all must of heard ‘Living On My Own’ and ‘Barcelona’, two great examples of his solo work. Although I say three solo albums, one is a solo, one is with Monserrat Caballe, and the third is a ‘best of’ album - Otherwise known in the UK as "The Freddie Mercury Album", so there’s not a lot; The Freddie Mercury / Best Of album has some tracks that aren’t on the other albums, and some of his songs also turned up on a Queen album, reworked, which together utilised the last work that Queen were working on.2

The Singles Collections are nice too. They mostly consist of Extended, Single and Re-mix versions of his singles, as well as none album B-sides, the nicest part is the fact that his first single from 1973 is included; ‘I Can Hear Music’ by Larry Lurex.

The Rarities are probably the best part of the collection, much like the Beatles anthologies and such that come out now, these three CD’s contain a lot of tracks that you can only get in this package, including early takes, demos, re-mixes, alternative versions, tracks that never made it, music that he did with other people, and one of the best pieces, is a live performance of when he was in a band called Ibex , singing ‘Rain’ by The Beatles. So there is plenty of stuff that you will want to listen to, to see how the songs developed, hear the early demos and to hear never before heard of songs- the songs that were never finished or released.

The Instrumentals are mostly instrumental versions from the Barcelona album, although there are a couple of instrumentals of other songs.

The Interviews with David Wigg stretch from 1979 to 1987.

The DVD’s

The Video Collection; The videos are from his singles, eleven altogether, again its nice to see. To own them is nice, but to have them on DVD is great.

The Untold Story is a documentary which has been shown on TV, but this version is almost twice as long and its very informative. It tells of Freddie’s life from his early years in Zanzibar, to his later years in England, one thing is that it almost completely leaves out any aspects of his days with Queen3, but if I wanted to know about Queen, I’d watch a Queen documentary. This is, however, very interesting and told me things I never knew. Also on this DVD, is the Freddie Mercury Photographic Exhibition, which is viewable on a computer with a DVD drive.

The Book

The 120 page hard back book comes in a slip case, and the Discs are inside the covers. The book itself gives you all the information of the music on the Discs, which is great. There is an article of writing about Freddie and the rest of the book is made up of lots of very nice photographs, taken at various times of Freddie’s life.

Having this Collection is great, it's attractive and its a really nice thing to own. This is exceptional, it's been put together very lovingly and is really worth the price, unlike some quickly thrown together sets.

 My adivce is, if you're a Queen Fan, you’ve got to get this, it's fantastic.
