Comments:  Well, it's claimed to be a HD Revision Remix and Remasters 2016 release.
I don't have the cd's, so I can't confirm or give more explain about this release.
But it might be more than less what the sleeve says. 'Strippet'? I'm not sure how much really.
CD 1 is what we all see, the 1974 album 'QUEEN II' .
QUEEN II, is the album I discoverd Queen band back in 1977. Fantastic album. My favourite Queen album.
Roots: CD 1 from officially album. Others, CD 2 from variouse sources. Some known...some more unsure.
