In 1998 Peter Mew remastered for The Crown Jewels.[1]

CorrespondenceEdit

Hi Peter,

I'm doing some research into the various remastering efforts made by Queen Productions over the years with Queen's catalogue of music. You are credited with remastering the following releases:

1998 - 25th Anniversary 'Crown Jewels' LP replica CDs 2001 - Japan's 'Queen Digital Remasters Series' 2004 - Japan's LP Reproduction CDs 2008 to 2010 - Singles Collection, Volumes 1, 2 & 3

I'd like to know whether each new release features a new remaster. Put another way, did you sit down and newly remaster the tracks, either with different equipment or a different approach, for each product?

Also, were any of these remasters ever re-used for subsequent releases, meaning do two or more of the products listed feature the SAME remaster?

I hope you can help clarify this for me and I thank you for your time.

Sincerely, (rhyeking)

Peter, being a pretty awesome guy, was gracious enough to reply:

Hi (rhyeking) From Memory, I believe The 1998 and 2001 Remasters are different The 2004 release and singles collection are taken from the above 2 remasters, with new remasters of the tracks that do not feature on the 1998 or 2001 remasters The 2001 remaster was done at the request of the Japanese, and is a liitle more extreme than the 1998 set

HTH

cheers -pm
