A new episode in the Going Grey series, Paul Rigby looks at rarities and collectables for Queen
There’s a thriving music industry out there that deals in releases that sail close to the wind, in legal terms, they’re known as ‘grey’ releases.
Some of these producers find any loophole they can to stay on the right side of the law and others cross that line but rely on tiny production numbers in the hope of avoiding notice by the big companies.

It’s a touchy subject and a debate maybe I should investigate in a future article but, for now, here’s eight Queen LPs that do stay on the right side of the law because they exploit old FM radio broadcasts for their music sources…

question on speaker cables been told conflicting answers that debate the other, is their an optimum length you should not supersede for the best sound or does it not matter too much ?

Hi John – short is good but practicalities demand that length is balanced with life’s demans 🙂 So interconnects are fine at 1m up to 2m, say? Speaker cables are great at 2m up to around 3m? Balanced cables can be longer though but not all hifi provides connections for balanced cables.
