The third list contains hard to find previously released tracks. “a feast of previously released but hard-to-find versions of News of the World tracks recorded in concert, for radio shows, or in alternate mixes. Included is the band’s entire five-song final live session recorded for BBC Radio in October 1977, seven live performances of NOTW songs, plus rare backing tracks and instrumentals.”

The DVD contains the new hour long documentary Queen: The American Dream showing never-before-seen footage of the bands 1977 U.S. tour, showing both onstage and off stage.

Family guy fans will recognise this album as the one that Stewie freaks out about in one the episodes after Brian unearths it from the attic and uses it to torture Stewie.
