[No place], Queen Productions Ltd., 1985.

One of only 600 copies of this 1985 "Queen: The Complete Works" box set, autographed by four of the greatest names in rock: the indominable Freddie Mercury (1946-1991), guitarist (and astrophysicist) Brian May (b. 1947), bass guitarist John Deacon (b. 1951), and drummer Roger Taylor (b. 1949). With 14 LPs in perfect condition, unplayed, and the sleeve for "Complete Vision" (album XIV) signed in silver, as issued.

The set covers the music of Queen from their earliest days to their 1980s heights; laid in are interesting bonus materials, including a tour itinerary, a world map of Queen concerts, and a book of Queen's complete album art and full discography, including solo projects and collaborations. Even the band's preferred riders are listed, with meal and drink requests, and the layouts of famous venues the world over. The central piece, of course, is the music, in pristine white sleeves with raised decals, each LP in protective inner sleeve. Complete and in excellent, near-perfect condition, published just after their iconic twenty-minute set at the 1985 Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium, a benchmark in the history of rock.

Lid numbered 004199.


Box seams a touch delicate; the faintest hint of rubbing to autographs, which remain bright and clear.
