>> home : albums : greatest hits III

Released in 1999 on 2LP, CD and cassette. Hopefully the last compilation album by Queen.
The first pressing of the double LP issue (only released in the UK) is numbered (10,000 copies made only) and has a pvc outer sleeve with John, Brian and Roger on it. The carton sleeve has Freddie on it (just like the first CD issue). No gatefold sleeve, but two printed innersleeves (which do not feature the fan photos).
The second LP pressing has no printed pvc sleeve and therefore all the members on the carton sleeve.
There are two UK CD issues: the first one has an etched jewel case and the booklet contains four pages with photos made by fans (although some photos have been taken by fans from official books!), the second CD issue has a normal booklet (with no etched jewel case and no fan photos in the booklet).
The Japanese CD issue has an other extra track: I Was Born To Love You.
A Japanese promotional 3CD set was released with the three Greatest Hits CD albums, a promo booklet and a slipcase.
Israel has no extra track on the CD (and cassette?) issue.
Brazil has orange titles on the front sleeve instead of silver ones.
China and Korea have a different sleeve for the CD issues. The faces of John, Brian and Roger are bigger.
The Argentinian CD issue has a non-etched jewel case, but the booklet contains the fan photos.
A promotional AdvanceListening CD was released in the UK with a black sleeve in a slim jewel case and a black card sleeve. A blue sleeved issue should also exist.
