Picture disc from Bulgaria (or maybe Germany) which is probably a bootleg anyway. Note there is a second pressing of this picture disc (a bootleg of a bootleg!) which you can recognise by looking for the writing on the amplifiers. The picture is slightly bigger on the second pressing, so you can only see the writing on one of the amps behind John, whereas the "Marshall" can be seen on both amplifiers on the first pressing. Similarly on the right you can see Brian's hand on the first pressing but not on the second. The matrix numbers (etched into the centre grooves) are also different - BTA11253A/B on the first pressing and QN03A/B on the second. The first pressing is worth a lot of money and the second is still worth quite a bit (certainly much more than the fan club magazine reckoned). There is also a third pressing which is definitely bootleg and is worth very little.

German first few pressings in maroon/brown cover with gold writing. Actually two different ones. One with relief, one without. Dutch "Grootste Hits" limited edition gold bordered cover. Bulgarian white cover, double LP and normal LP. Bulgarian LP with montreux '84 picture (like the picture disc). Seems to be a bootleg (like picture disc). Two East German compilations (called "Queen" but basically a greatest hits. One with a crest cover, one with the same picture as on the inside of "Queen II". Polish LP "Best Of Queen" with the picture from the Jazz inner sleeve/picture disc on the cover. US release on K-Tel records with different sleeve, and identical Venezualan sleeve. South African 1985 issue including T-shirt with tour dates. Gatefold sleeve from Venezuela

The rarest Greatest Hits sleeve is possible one of the rarest Queen items ever. In 1980, a compilation was first planned, and it got as far as having a sleeve designed. This was shelved when the Flash Gordon project came along. The running order was the same as the eventual UK release, but without the Flash song. Four copies of the mock-up sleeve are thought to exist (along with details of a possible press campaign). The style of the sleeve is with a picture of each member taking up a quarter of the sleeve (the picture of Roger makes him look rather silly!)
