Queen Greatest Hits III
Queen Compilation Album
This compilation album has 17 tracks of Queen work which was either not included on previous compilations or had been collaborations with other artists.
Recommended Songs: Barcelona (Freddie Mercury & Mike Moran), Somebody To Love (Mercury), Las Palabras De Amor (May), No One But You (Queen), These Are The Days Of Our Lives (Queen)
Queen’s Greatest Hits III will probably be the very last album from Queen – and definitely the last Greatest Hits. It includes Queen collaborations with other artists including Elton John, George Michael and David Bowie, as well as solo songs and some remixes – all of which got into the Top 30. An alternate name for the album is Queen+ due to the fact that there are other artists on the album.
One of the highlights is actually in the video of ‘Under Pressure’ which sees Freddie and David Bowie singing live, together, on stage … however, this never happened and it was all done digitally. The only low-light is the inclusion of Wyclef Jeans ‘attempt’ at ‘Another one bites the Dust’ – FF» !.
Overall it is a great way for Queen to bow out with a compilation album of their best solo, recent and not so recent material. Mojo called Queen Greatest Hits III, ‘vocal magic here comes from a certain Mercurial talent’. The compilation is available on its own and also as a compilation or compilations, in Greatest Hits I, II and III.
Review Rating: 8
Did you know … the video for ‘These of the Days of our Lives’ was filmed in 2 sections as Brian was in the USA promoting his solo album. Brian was then added separately into the composite video image for the promotional clip.
