In what may be one of Rock’s most “DUH…!!” moment, Queen’s beloved News Of The World will be treated to a richly curated Deluxe Edition of the 1977 classic. With carefully researched finds and the original album, this 40th Anniversary of News Of The World will likely be the best reissue for many of 2017.

On November 17, Universal UK (for now) will release a massive and celebratory multi-disc set of News Of The World that will include the original album, two extra CDs of outtakes, live cuts from BBC sessions and other live shows, and an alternative version of the album. And that’s just the CDs. There is also a DVD with a one-hour documentary, Queen: The American Dream featuring film from the 1977 support tour. A vinyl LP of the album will be included. Finally, a gracious and defining 60-page book full of photos and words is included as well.

This is perfect gift-giving for an intense Queen fan.
