    The recent article in the S&V points out that some of the copy's floating out there of this title,isn't the one that was intented to be released,at least by band member Brian May who has heard the 5.1 ch mix by Elliot Scheiner.So he got involved and turned in a bit of a different mix which is said to be different and arguably better then the "first batch".
    The new version will say 2002 on the back under DTS entertainment,and has a black "spine" if you look the cover from the front.
    The old has blue spine,and will say 2001 on the back cover.
    I don't have to tell you, that I'm a bit pissed that now possibly I have to replace[rebuy]it,however this would give me a chance to make my own comparison as well.
    For more info, see the article in the current S&V.

    Cool then mine is the new one, it says on the disc 2002.
    Thanks for the info!
    Looks like Ken Richardson needs another slap on the face,one for the review, and for this.

    A store I went to in New Jersey when the Queen disc first came out got in both versions of the packaging. My copy has the light blue insert and a 2001 copyright date on the package. The disc has a 2002 copyright date. If there are discs out there with a 2001 copyright date and a different mix, perhaps they will be worth something someday, as there probably aren't too many out there.

    Keith, I can't remember which site originally broke the news, but I remember they said that the original version in the original packaging had made it to retail through one large Canadian distributor. Other than ebay (folks selling the CES freebie), this seemed to be the only place where the original showed up. Since then, I haven't heard of anyone getting the old version through retail, or at least, nobody has come forward to report it.

    Micahel, thanks for the info. Interesting. Sounds like one of those situations where a few cases of the old version slipped out the back door of the warehouse before they could be destroyed. [​IMG]
