Post by: Mesch on March 13, 2015, 09:37:08 pm
Hi guys,

just got my Tracker Deluxe Box today. I must say it's very cool, nice add-ons :-)
The bonus tracks are well worth waiting for!
Especially "Terminal of Tribute to" is awesome !!!!! :-)

why is taormina "credited" to mk and Mike when you see the tracklisting when playing the cd on a computer
also, why does he thank his "pa" all of the sudden? i mean, i am sure he always loved the man. but he never used to do so before. just wonder why here.
absolutely LOVE the album.

How is the video content ? Worth it ? Anything more than than the short film ? Any live footage ?
I can afford the box, but I won't get it just for the 2 new tracks, I think this way of forcing you plenty of so-call goodies you don't need is shameful.
I don't have a turntable, no need for LPS, CD mastering and production processes are very mature nowadays and give the same warmth as LPS. I don't care much for pictures. Only the DVD would make it worthwhile - but only if nice new stuff, not just interviews !
Please tell me.

Strange, you should have the 'Standard' album inside as per my piccies.....

Post by: ingridswing on March 31, 2015, 04:46:57 pm
I had it complete. In the box, there's a space for the CD and it should carry it.

Does it contain lyrics for all the 17 tracks ?

I have just bought the one disc 'Deluxe edition' of the standard album (for the collection) and the lyrics to:

*.38 special,
*My Heart has never Changed
*Terminal of tribute to
*Heart of Oak

are indeed in the printed booklet with an artist piccie of MK underneath the Lyrics for ToTT!!

I can send you the standard CD if you want. I have some spare, because I got some because of buying tickets.

Glad everything is sorted for you, nothing else 'taken' I hope... :wave

Extremely kind of you as always

let's see what MK.com says

I just had a phone call with a friend who ordered from Amazon.it 5 minutes after me.
He received the box sealed. Mine was not sealed.

Someone at amazon probably opened it and stole the cd.

In your bad luck you were lucky to be robbed with only the less valuable content of your box...

maybe that's how albums on pirate sites appear before the official release....

Who on Earth could bother to steal a CD? I think you're confused, it's not 1915 now, it's 2015 :lol

In a resulting of "last minute panic" I ordered the Tracker Deluxe Edition as only a few copies were left on stock. And just because I want to have it. Now it arrived today - am I the only one who thinks that the box itself is very narrow, it hardly stands upright. I am not talking about the content, that has been discussed widely, but the cardboard packaging of the box itself is pretty weak compared to the Get Lucky box which I got last week or so. Also the sidewalls of the cardboard packaging are not even. Although still shrink-wrapped, I get the feeling my box was not originally new anymore... The cover seems to be slightly bigger than the bottom. Hm.

That's the way it is... The parts of the box doesn't fit.

Post by: Love Expresso on July 25, 2016, 09:48:27 pm
It's not the end of the world of course but I detect a big difference quality wise in production details when I compare the Tracker box with the Get Lucky box which was made with much more love for design and details.

Speaking of boxes, if you watch some YouTube clips of some of the Queen boxes, you will see a huge difference in what is possible. That's what I call Deluxe!  The coloured vinyl album box, the Hammersmith deluxe box and so on and so on...
I wish Mark and his Management would take more care of these things IF they do deluxe boxes at all...

It's the same in every walk of life;  the people who make these decisions don't understand or care what it's like for you or I until it's too late and it all goes wrong.
