The 6th installment of Queen's ultimate album thorough research series "Expanded Collector's Edition", "Dedicated to the World (News of the World)", is now available as a 2CD & 1DVD set!
Singles such as "We Will Rock You," "We Are The Champions," "Spread Your Wings," and "It's Late" that were re-routed and became Queen's representative song during the rise of punk/new wave in 1977.
The album, which was a transitional period that challenged the United States to conquer with vigorous tours including hits, was re-evaluated in the 40th anniversary box with a variety of contents including the new musical direction of Queen and elements of blues and jazz.
It is a remarkable work. The CD contains "alternate album" which is a re-arrangement of all the album songs by multi-track remix, outtakes, etc. and MFSL (Mobile Fidelity) sound source which is now difficult to obtain due to CD conversion from the original analog master.

Contains rare sound sources including first appearances and upgraded sound sources such as alternate versions, multi-track remixes, valuable demo sound sources, etc. It is compiled with only the sound sources not recorded in the 40th anniversary box. For DVD, all the songs are lyric video and multi-audio is selected. In addition to remaster stereo, 5.1 surround mix, instrumental karaoke tracks, vocal main tracks, and other 4 types of multi-audio are selected for comparison.
Includes "audio album" and "promo video" version differences, "video collection" such as TV and live images. This is the sixth installment of the Expanded Collector's Edition that cannot be overlooked as the "ultimate album thorough research series", which is a deep enthusiastically smashing album as before! !

[Collectors points]
In the first half of CD1, all the songs of the album are reconstructed with multi-track remixes, outtakes, rehearsals and demo sound sources as "Complete Album Reconstructions".
It is an alternate album with officially unrecorded sound sources. Includes a demo of "Sheer Heart Attack" with a long intro count, a hybrid version of Freddie and Brian "All Dead All Dead", and a test press version of "Spread Your  Wings". In the latter half, a further official unrecorded sound source is recorded as "Alternate Version and Remix". Includes the "feeling feeling" (No. 9) version, which is not included in the album, the backing track, and the "We Are The Champions" BBC version with different guitars.

The first half of CD2 includes all the album songs by the MFSL (Mobile Fidelity) sound source, which is currently difficult to obtain due to being converted to CD from the original analog master. Natural sound that is faithful to the original sound that cannot be tasted with the latest remaster is recorded.
Also in the latter half, following CD1, further official unrecorded sound sources such as Rick Rubin remixes and rehearsals that were once released from Hollywood Records are recorded.
All the sound sources on the CD are rare sound sources not recorded in the 40th anniversary box. As with the previous DVDs, as in the previous audio albums, all songs were played in real time and lyrics were played in real time. In addition to multimaster audio, remaster stereo, 5.1 surround mix, instrumental tracks, and vocal main tracks were selected. Recorded with 4 types of audio options that you can compare and listen to.

Compared to maniac listening, not only sound source verification but also playing instrumental tracks and enjoying karaoke according to the image and confirming songs and choruses with vocal main tracks that suppressed the performance mainly on Freddie's vocals All songs can be played with 4 different sound sources. In the "Video Collection", each version of the promo video including the precious making of "We Will Rock You", "We Are The Champions" and "Eternal Tsubasa" is recorded together. It covers various video version differences. This is the 6th installment of the "ultimate album thorough research" series recommended by beginners to enthusiasts, which summarizes related sound sources and images of the album "Dedicated to the World".
