As you’re probably aware, after Universal Music nabbed Queen from long time record company EMI last year, they promised a full remastered re-release of the band’s back catalogue.
The band’s first five albums (‘Queen’, ‘Queen II’, ‘Sheer Heart Attack’, ‘A Night At The Opera’ and ‘A Day At The Races’) are the first to get the deluxe re-release treatment when they’re released in Australia on Friday March 11.
To coincide with the releases, Universal will pop out ‘Deep Cuts 1973-1976’, a 14 track look at some of the highlights from the band’s first five LPs.
The tracklisting has been chosen by both Roger Taylor and Brian May, along with Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters and will provide those who aren’t that familiar with Queen’s first five albums with the highlights.
Two more ‘Deep Cuts’ compilations are planned for later in the year (June and September) when two further batches of five Queen albums will also get the deluxe treatment.
‘Deep Cuts 1973-1976’ will be released on Friday March 11.
