Queen: The Studio Collection — 18-disc box set

High-quality colored vinyl versions of Queen's 15 studio albums!

Half-speed lacquers cut at Abbey Road Studios; mastered by Bob Ludwig using the original master tapes

Includes 108-page hardback book w/ archival material from Queen's Brian May, Roger Taylor

Sumptuous. Vinyl is how listeners first heard the legendary band Queen as the '70s dawned. A new 18-disc box set, Queen: The Studio Collection, features remastered editions of each of the band's albums, including three records — 1974's Queen II, 1991's Innuendo and 1994's Made in Heaven — that have their tracks spread over two LPs.

Reproduced to the highest standards of audio and artwork, the albums have been mastered by renowned engineer Bob Ludwig using the original source tapes. Miles Showell, at Abbey Road Studios, has perfected the technique of cutting lacquers at half speed. He runs the source file and the cutting lathe at 50% of the normal speed, which means double the accuracy in the cutting of the groove, resulting in superior reproduction of the music.

Each 180-gram vinyl disc boasts a different color that corresponds to the cover art featured on that album. The Studio Collection also comes packaged with a 108-page hardback book featuring archival material contributed by Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor, as well as by fans. The book offers introductions to each album, quotes from band members, rare photos, handwritten lyrics, various pieces of memorabilia and more.

As for the albums that appear in the set as double discs, Queen II features its tracks split between a black-colored LP and a white-colored LP in honor of the fact that the original record boasted a "Side White" and a "Side Black" rather than a "Side A" and "Side B"; while Innuendo and Made in Heaven, having been issued during the heyday of the CD, featured a run time that wouldn't allow for their songs to fit on a single disc.

All of the remastered albums also will be available for purchase separately on black vinyl.
