The fourth installment of boxed CD reissues of Queen’s original singles covers the band’s very last albums, 1989’s The Miracle and 1991’s Innuendo, the last two records released during Freddie Mercury’s lifetime; the posthumous 1995 collection Made in Heaven; and selected singles from the comps Queen Rocks and Greatest Hits III. Whatever the relative merits of these albums may be -- and there are some diehards who will argue for them -- there’s no denying that this singles collection is for the most dedicated of the dedicated. There are no great flip sides -- these are primarily live versions, edits, remixes, and album tracks -- and the sleeves do not provoke the rush of nostalgia that the first three volumes in the set do, leaving this for completists only.
The Singles Collection, Volume 4 is a limited edition CD series compilation box set by the English rock band Queen, the fourth and last set in the collection. The box set contains remastered versions of the next thirteen top-40 charting singles released by Queen that appear subsequent to those in The Singles Collection Volume 3, excluding the Five Live EP and the Small Soldiers Remix of "Another One Bites The Dust", the latter of which was not released by EMI/Parlophone.
It contains the material released from the years 1988 - 1998, and covers the albums The Miracle, Innuendo, Made In Heaven, Queen Rocks and Greatest Hits III. This was the band's final release on EMI/Parlophone before their back catalogue was re-issued on Universal's Island label in 2011.
