>> home : albums : the crown jewels

A USA only box set, released in late 1998. It features Queen's first eight studio albums plus a small booklet containing the lyrics and the common photo's and artwork of each album. Everything is packed in a nice blue box which looks like a jewel case.
Two promotional items were released to promote the box: a CD featuring the 1992 Greatest Hits CD in a card sleeve and a five track promo CD with five different Keep Yourself Alive versions.
