Volume 3 The third edition of the Singles Collection continues the story through the years 1984 to 1989, and was released by EMI/Parlophone on May 31 2010. These watershed years which saw Queen re-enforce their position as arguably the biggest band in the world and a period which reaffirmed the band's extraordinary breadth of talent - diverging in scope and optimism and assurance of such tracks as A Kind Of Magic, One Vision (written after Live Aid), and I Want It All to the contrasting poignancy of such deeply personal ballads as Is This The World We Created? and Who Wants To Live forever. 10 out of the 14 A-sides here were top 10 singles worldwide. Of special interest in this set are the inclusion of 5 instrumental B-sides, non-UK sleeves, and the ultra rare sleeve originally designed for the UK and US release of Hammer To Fall but inexplicably withdrawn shortly after the single became available. The five years of the Queen story this collection bridges are as close to a defining history of the band as we are ever likely to be presented with. Starting with It's A Hard Life with Is This The World We Created? (a duet by Freddie and Brian only), and an edited single version of the heavy rock number Hammer To Fall, this set also features the bands first ever Christmas themed single and non album track Thank God It's Christmas, composed by both Roger and Brian. The last two songs from The Works album, Freddie's Man On The Prowl and Keep Passing The Open Windows (inspired and written for the film Hotel New Hampshire), were added to Thank God It's Christmas, which meant that every track from this album was released as singles A or B-sides. In this remarkable period of the band career we saw Queen tear up the record books. In their return to Latin America to play at Rock in Rio in Brazil on January 19 1985 the band played to a crowd of over 300,000, the biggest concert audience of all time. They also played at Live Aid, and stole the show, with many a poll citing this as the greatest live apperance of any band ever. Recording wise the band created some of their most popular work to date. One Vision was the first single A-side to be written by all four members of the band and was used in the soundtrack of the film Iron Eagle. Another soundtrack for the film Highlander would largely make up the content of their May 1986 album, A Kind of Magic. The release gave the band another UK album chart No.1 and the title track single reached number one in no less than 35 countries, and included Roger's instrumental non album track A Dozen Red Rosed For My Darling. A double A-side is created here for the first time, so as not to repeat any tracks twice (in this case it would have been Killer Queen), with Friends Will Be Friends containing the Australian single Princes Of The Universe, and a hit only in that country. A remix version of Pain Is So Close To Pleasure makes it's CD debut here, as does the single version of Who Wants To Live Forever. Again, so as not to repeat tracks, the B-side of the instrumental track Forever, was taken from the 12" single release and used on this CD single. Who Wants To Live Forever is the first and only song to use an orchestra on a Queen track, namely the National Philharmonic Orchestra, arranged by Brian and the late Michael Kamen. The last single from the Magic album was the France and Spain only release of One Year Of Love, a John Deacon ballad which features a saxaphone solo played by Steve Gregory. Every track from the A Kind Of Magic, and the album prior, The Works, share the distinction of having all it's content available on various single releases. It took Queen three years to release a new album, which they did in spring 1989 with The Miracle. The album showed that despite the lengthy time gap between albums, Queen had not run out of steam, and their efforts were rewarded with another number 1 album and five consecutive Top 40 singles, four of which - I Want It All, Breakthru, The Invisible Man and Scandal are included in this volume, and all including non-album tracks as the B-sides.
