Tracklisting & More Information

What were you doing on November 25th, 1996 ? If you weren't speed-dialling London's Virgin Radio station chances are you won't have one of these, let alone all seven. Following the release of their highly anticipated 'Made In Heaven' album the remaining members of Queen, along with Parlophone and Virgin Radio executives, together created a very special series of prizes to chase away any Monday blues and tempt you with some red-hot Queen booty. Throughout the day Virgin Radio played a selection of tracks from the album and determined callers lucky enough to get through and successfully answer a Queen-related question were able to choose one from seven of the Made In Heaven album tracks as a special edition 12" single, housed in a custom Queen Crest logo sleeve.

There were only 12 complete sets manufactured and after an aborted attempt with the first disc - VIRGIN1 - production recommenced utilising the unique catalogue number sequence VIRGIN2 to VIRGIN8. Incidentally, all the 12" singles are one-sided. Rumour has it that one copy of VIRGIN1 was incorrectly pressed as a two-sided disc and when the error was discovered that sole record was destroyed. We've never seen one, but if you have evidence of its existence we'd love to hear about it. Consequently 'Heaven For Everyone' (VIRGIN2) became the first disc in the sequence, which follows thus:-

VIRGIN2 - Heaven For Everyone
VIRGIN3 - A Winter's Tale
VIRGIN4 - Mother Love
VIRGIN5 - Let Me Live
VIRGIN6 - You Don't Fool Me
VIRGIN7 - It's A Beautiful Day
VIRGIN8 - I Was Born To Love You

By the end of the day there had been 14 competition winners. Each winner received their one chosen record and as an added bonus that one record was AUTOGRAPHED by Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. We've only had two of the actual prize-winners records for sale since 1996.

Prizes on the day account for 14 of the 84 records (12 sets of 7 = 84). So, what about the rest? Well, some complete sets were given as a 'thank you' to the radio executives although none of those were autographed. As there really are only 14 individual records that have signatures collating an entire set of all seven with original autographs is as close to impossible as makes no difference.

Luckily for the rest of us non-competition winners, the past decade has seen a few complete non-autographed sets make their way to the collectables market, which makes the task of trying to piece together a complete set from individual purchases a lot easier. The 7 discs we have on offer here is one of those 'executive thank you' sets. We have seen some individual records sell via eBay and for every individual disc that sells it makes the task of putting together the whole set that much more difficult, so this is your chance to scoop the whole lot in one go.....
