  Comments II
Really interested and nice demo tracks from 'Hot Space' (1982), and 'The Miracle' (1989) sessions. 'Delilah' 
 song is probably from 'The Miracle' session, even it was released on 'Innuendo' album in 1991.
 There is some  songs, from other sessions to.

 Track 'Every One Of Us' are available in better quality on 'State Of Shock' bootleg cd
 The 3 tracks from Freddie's house on Feb. 29th. 1988 was recorded on a little pink cassette recorder, 
 which looked like an 'elephant'. These recordings use to be called
'The Pink Elephant session'
 Peter Freestone, Freddie's personal assistant told this to me at a UK fan club convention for some years ago. 
 He told stories about his life working with Freddie. 
 By the way, I can't confirm the date Feb. 29th. 1988, is the CORRECT date. I have just been told so, 
 by other collectors.
