The original CD masters of Queen's work were dreadful, with a disappointingly weak and muddy audio quality.
The remastering duties were handed to the excellent Bob Ludwig, and he has extracted a surprising amount of extra detail from the original tapes, while keeping the sound pleasingly 'analogue'.
The extra tracks are demos, which are fun for the devoted fan, but not a compelling reason to purchase.
The first two of the Greatest Hits albums have also been remastered to a similarly high quality.
