FREDDIE MERCURY – Never Boring [3-CD Special Deluxe Edition] (2019)
The “Never Boring” box set brings together for the first time a specially-curated selection of FREDDIE MERCURY’s music into a 3-CD box. The set reminds us that Freddie was an exceptional singer, songwriter, performer and human being whose special kind of magic is captured in this exceptional collection of his solo work.
The package is meticulously compiled and produced by Queen’s longtime sound team Justin Shirley-Smith, Kris Fredriksson and Joshua J Macrae who also co-produced the Bohemian Rhapsody film official soundtrack album.
Taken from the very best original source material available, the full “Never Boring” collection contains three CDs with 32 tracks and a Blu-ray / DVD.
The three CDs include a new 12-track compilation of many of Freddie’s greatest solo performances titled “Never Boring”; a newly mixed 11-track special edition of his solo album “Mr Bad Guy”; and the nine-track Special edition of “Barcelona” featuring full orchestra.
The box is titled from Freddie’s own words, who once said: “You can do anything with my work, but never make me boring.”
Completely remastered, this is the definitive, best-ever sound quality release of Freddie’s solo work.
