Let's start at the beginning: Edit

Queen (the debut album)

  1. 01) Keep Yourself Alive (2008 Singles Collection Remaster)
  2. 02) Doing All Right (1991 Hollywood Records Remaster)
  3. 03) Great King Rat (1991 HR)
  4. 04) My Fairy King (1991 HR)
  5. 06) Liar (1991 HR)
  6. 07) The Night Comes Down (1991 HR)
  7. 08) Modern Times Rock and Roll (1991 HR)

  10. bonus tracks
  11. 11) Mad The Swine (1991 HR)
  12. 12) Keep Yourself Alive (Long Lost Re-Take) (1998 Crown Jewels Promo Sampler)

Because there was only the "Keep Yourself Alive" single which has seen any re-issuing (Oh, poor "Liar." you're so neglected, robbing us of a newly remastered "Doing All Right")

Compare that to The Miracle album:
