(hennemusic) Queen will release "Queen On Air: The Complete BBC Radio Sessions" on November 4. Available as a 2-CD, 3-LP and Collector's Edition 6-CD set complete with added live concert broadcasts and radio interviews, the package presents all six BBC Sessions by the group recorded between February 1973 and October 1977.

The twenty-four recordings these sessions produced include alternate versions of the band's debut single, 1973's "Keep Yourself Alive", unique takes of classic album tracks and even a radically reworked version of one of their best known anthems that has never previously appeared on any Queen studio release.

Queen's very first session for the BBC dates from February 1973, five months before the release of the band's self-titled debut album and single. The band's sixth and final session, in October 1977, saw Queen record some radically different versions of four songs from the "News Of The World" album on the same day as its UK release: "Spread Your Wings," "It's Late," "My Melancholy Blues," and two renditions of "We Will Rock You" - the 'regular' version and the 'fast' version - the only known studio recording of this live favorite.
