Queen - A Kind of Magic
(EMI Tosiba TOCP-67352 Jap-04 225:-)

"A Kind of Magic" was Queen's biggest album yet in England, where it reached number one, remained on the charts for 63 weeks, and spawned several hit singles -- the epic title track, the tuneful pop/rocker "Friends Will Be Friends," and one of their most haunting ballads, "Who Wants to Live Forever". Most of the songs were written for the movie Highlander - but instead of issuing just a movie soundtrack, the band added a few non-movie tracks and made an official Queen release out of it.

Queensryche - Operation: LIVEcrime
(EMI E2-97048 US-91 175:-)

On their early 1990s tour for their hit album Empire, Queensryche performed its 1988 predecessor, Operation: Mindcrime, in its entirety. Years later, Mindcrime is still regarded as a masterpiece, as is this live counterpart. Each song stands on its own, yet collectively contribute to a powerful statement. In the live setting, Queensryche's aggressive edge comes forward flawlessly. Vocalist Geoff Tate is commanding and emotional, while Michael Wilton and Chris DeGarmo's guitar work is immaculate. Bassist Eddie Jackson and especially drummer Scott Rockenfield add progressive, unconventional rhythms.

"Operation: Livecrime" was originally released as this limited-edition box set with a CD and video and quickly became a collector's piece.
