Queen / The Platinum Collection 6LP coloured vinyl box set

Limited edition coming in June

Queen’s Platinum Collection was issued back in 2000 and saw all three ‘Greatest Hits’ brought together as one 3CD box set. That triple-album set is now replicated but in the form of a 6LP coloured vinyl box set, due in June.

The original Greatest Hits (25 million sales and counting) was issued in 1981, while Greatest Hits II followed a decade later, just before the death of Freddie Mercury. Greatest Hits III (released in 1999) is a bit of a hodge-podge, if we’re honest, featuring solo works, collaborations and live tributes.

All three Greatest Hits are collected in the 6LP coloured vinyl edition of The Platinum Collection (click image to enlarge)

All three albums are across two LPs, making this a 6LP vinyl box set. Each record will be pressed on different coloured vinyl (see image above) and will come in its own individually designed sleeve. The set comes with a 24-page 12-inch photo book/let and the records are housed in an outer slipcase with brand new artwork.

The Platinum Collection 6LP coloured vinyl box set is released on 17 June via EMI/UMC. It is a limited edition although the label haven’t been forthcoming in terms of numbers.
