|The Complete Works >>|
The 'Box Of Tricks' is a boxed set released in
May 1992, measuring 12.5" by 10.5" by 3". The lid
of the set lifts up and includes a wallet which houses a poster of 176
albums and singles sleeves from around the world. The base of the
set has a plastic moulding which houses a sew-on badge, enamel
badge, 'The 12" Collection' album and 'Live At The Rainbow'
video. It also has a pull-out drawer, which houses a 32 page
colour book, featuring Queen photographs from throughout their
career, and a black T-shirt, which simply has the word 'Queen' in
gold letters across the breast.
The box itself, album, video, booklet and badges all feature the same design, namely the Queen crest and 'Queen' wording, in gold, on a maroon background. The design is very similar to that used for the 'Greatest Hits II' release.
'Live At The Rainbow' is a VHS video, in a card slipcase, and features a heavily edited recording of Queen's performance at the Rainbow Theatre, London, on 20 November 1974. At the time, only one of the tracks was available elsewhere, but the complete performance was later released in 2014 as the 'Live At The Rainbow '74' album, DVD and Blu-ray.
'The 12" Collection' is an exclusive album on CD or cassette, which despite it's name, includes nine 12" versions, two album versions, and one instrumental version. All tracks are available elsewhere, but five tracks are otherwise unavailable on CD or Cassette.
The track listings are as follows:
The CD and VHS version of the boxed set has
catalogue number CDQTEL0001, whilst the Cassette and VHS version
has catalogue number TCQTEL 0001.
Selected images of the set are shown below, however full photographs of the contents are available in the gallery.
