Here is the latest update to the Fanthology guide, now including a chapter on The Works. That's another 68 song versions for you to read about and collect.
Please check out my Facebook page for regular updates on the project and additional features: https://www.facebook.com/queenfanthology
As always I need to thank my two proof readers, Soxtalon and Mrs Jam Monkey. I hope you all enjoy reading the guide, and happy collecting!
As far as I know the 12" picture disc of "It's A Hard life" does not contain the extended mix, it only contains the album version.
At least my version does and I have never seen a picture disc copy containing the extended mix.
The regular UK 12" (indeed without a picture sleeve) contains the extended mix.
In Germany two 12" singles were released, both with a picture sleeve. One containing the extended mix, one not containing the extended mix.
And another amazing chapter in the Fanthology guide. As I know, a huge amount of work and time goes into these projects, so a big thank you and congrats for all your hard work you have put into this Jam Monkey.

Thanks GT. It is a lot of work, but it's a labour of love really.
Excellent job on this instalment and all the precious ones. I can't stress that enough.
One thing missing from the early CD issues of "The Works" is the US version.
Capitol records -catalogue # CDP 7 46016 2 (DIDX 414)
I bought this in Toronto, Canada when it came out in '84, although it says right on the cover and the disc "Made in U.S.A.".
I'm not actually sure if there was a distinct Canadian version released at all. I was under the impression that all those early CD's were manufactured in the US at that time over here. I could very well be wrong … which would mean I've got some cd's to look for now. Hahaha
Interesting that it has the same catalogue # is the EMI version, but it definitely says Capitol Records all over it.
Just thought I'd post this in case anyone was interested.
