Queen remasters

Featuring "We Well Rock You", "We Are the Champions", "Spread Your Wings", and "Its Late".
Last December, Queen signed to Island Records after two generations with EMI.  They remain with Hollywood Records in the US and Canada (owned by Disney yet distributed by Island owner Universal).  Everywhere else, the back catalogue is being reissued in batches of five.  Last March, the albums from Queen (1973) to A Day at the Races reached the shops with extended liner notes and bonus tracks.  The next five will be released next June.  Not sure about the pattern of drop dates, but I am with five at a time (to save money perhaps).  More info as I get it.
