|1.Staying Power 4:13 Starts
off with the standard intro but with Freddie saying "Let's make
contact!" Features a guitar solo instead of saxophones and
horns that adds a more ‘rock' feeling to the track.
2.Action This Day 3:40 Freddie's
vocals are noticeably different in some places. Roger's backing
vocals are very different and much more sung like in the live
renditions of this song. Also features a different (extended)
3.Back Chat 4:35 A slightly
different intro, with a few extra bass notes and very different
lyrics. Brian is more prominently featured here than on the album.
4.Life Is Real (Song For Lennon) 3:29 Freddie's
vocals are noticeably different and the track begins with either a
drum machine or Roger. Brian's guitar work is a bit more prominent
and Freddie's piano has a bit more volume than on the album.
5.Las Palabras De Amor (The Words Of Love) 4:23 Different
lyrics appear (and disappear) throughout the song. Brian's vocals
can be heard very well in the backing track.
6.Feel Like 5:02
This early demo
version of Under Pressure features the same backing guitar work by
Brian, but is missing the famous bassline. The lyrics are completely
different and in no way resemble the final lyrics from ‘Under
Pressure'. The lyrics basically deal with love and love breaking up.
7.Cool Cat 3:48 Similar to the
album release, but featuring David Bowie on some backing vocals.
Bowie's vocals actually add a weird element to the track. This
version only appeared on a test-pressing of the ‘Hot Space' album.
8. A New Life Is Born 1:22 This
track is actually the beginning chorus part of "Breakthru."
Right when you expect the "Now!" part, the song continues
into a ballad. Seems to be just Freddie on vocals and piano for this
9. Dog With A Bone 4:37 Great jam
session song, done in a Muddy Waters style. Lead vocals are shared
by Freddie and Roger. This one seems to be done just for fun, and
the energy certainly comes through! Made out as a Fan Club
convention message to the 1988 UK convention.
10. My Baby Loves Me 3:35 The
demo version of "My Baby Does Me." Many of the lyrics are
not completed yet, so there is some filler from Freddie.
11.I Guess We're Falling Out 2:35 A
very nice unfinished song with a great hook that features lead
vocals and piano by Freddie. A shame this was never completed on
12.Hang On In There 2:58 A mainly
instrumental demo with Freddie doing some vocals bits here and
there. A bit heavier than the regular version, and still interesting
to listen to.
A very long
demo version that starts with some studio banter from Freddie and
then goes into the song. Freddie provides the only vocals and is
multitracked throughout the song. The song has a few instrumental
sections, but it is mostly a vocal showcase for Freddie.
14.Hijack My Heart 3:25 Roger is
on lead vocals. Instrumentally, the song is basically the same,
except for some maracas in the background for the entire song (which
works surprisingly well!). Brian's guitar is more present and
heavier. The ending features a piano outro which comes as a
15.Delilah 4:16 Instrumentation
is similar to what is heard on the Innuendo album, but Freddie's
vocals are unpolished and lyrics are incomplete in places.
16.My Secret Fantasy 2:34 This
track is heavy on keyboards, featuring early and simplistic Freddie
vocals (probably just to be used as a guide vocal). An interesting
song that could have been on the A Kind of Magic album.
17.Headlong 3:03 An early demo
version featuring Freddie on lead - and Brian on backing vocals. The
percussion sounds like it was provided by a drum machine, but it
sounds as though John's bass is present.
18.Robbery 2:04 A pretty heavy
track featuring lots of guitar. Freddie does all the vocals. Brian
probably wrote this one.
19.Self Made Man 4:38 A demo
featuring both Brian and Freddie on vocals. Mostly synthesizer,
bass, and drums with a guitar solo from Brian. Brian sings most of
the lead vocals and then Freddie comes in with his bit. The track
has a very long instrumental outro.
20. Too Much Love Will Kill You 2:01 An
early 1988 Freddie vocal version of the track (which was supposed to
be on ‘The Miracle'). The vocal track is unique and not the same
as the one used on the ‘Made In Heaven' album.
