Queen / Orb USB Gift Box

Queen / Orb USB Gift BoxQueen release two collector’s box sets on 21 November. The previously reported Live At Wembley Super Deluxe Edition is now available to purchase at the Universal Music Box Set store, but the same date also sees the release of the appropriately regal Queen Orb USB Gift Box.

This looks to be a similar offering to The Beatles’ Apple USB Drive, but instead of an apple-shape we have here an orb. The top crest of the ‘orb’ is removable and it reveals a USB drive containing ALL Queen studio albums and a photo gallery. In addition inside of the orb lies a gold-plated pendant necklace resting in a red velvet collector’s bag.

So far, so gimmicky. But, if you like your hi-rez audio, the big carrot to purchase this is that it contains all the audio in high resolution better-than-CD 24-bit WAV (44.1 kHz), as well as MP3 (320 kbps). It is  fully compatible with PC and Mac.

Contains the following albums:

  • • Queen (1973)
  • • Queen II (1974)
  • • Sheer Heart Attack (1974)
  • • A Night at the Opera (1975)
  • • A Day at the Races (1976)
  • • News of the World (1977)
  • • Jazz (1978)
  • • The Game (1980)
  • • Flash Gordon (1980)
  • • Hot Space (1982)
  • • The Works (1984)
  • • A Kind of Magic (1986)
  • • The Miracle (1989)
  • • Innuendo (1991)
  • • Made In Heaven (1995)

    Just when we thought that Pink Floyd would be the only band to have huge box sets of their classic albums, I wonder whose idea it was to release
    these massive box sets? The artists, their managers, roadies, the record companies. Just bought the simply stunning box set of Jethro Tull’s
    “Aqualung”, and the way i see it there seems to be a lot more on the way!!
    As we are getting close to Christmas time is this one of the reasons why
    they’re releasing them now? Now Queen, amazing.
