The CD Single Box was a CD compilation box set by the English rock band Queen released exclusively in Japan by EMI records.[1][2]

Packaging[edit]

The CDs are housed inside a gold embossed flip top box with a 48-page booklet which includes the bio, anthology and song lyrics in English and Japanese.[1]

Contents[edit]

The box set has 12 x 3" CD single ('Mini Album' written on the reverse of all sleeves) snap-packs (Japanese: tanzaku) which includes twelve hit-singles released between 1973 and 1986. The singles start with the A-side tracks "Seven Seas Of Rhye" through to "A Kind Of Magic" complete with B-sides. The few non-album B-sides included are "See What a Fool I've Been", "Soul Brother", "I Go Crazy" and "A Dozen Red Roses for My Darling".[1] The compact discs are 3-inch or (8 cm), with sleeves called snap-packs, as they could be "snapped and folded" into a small square. Almost all of the writing is in Japanese.

All CDs have three tracks each, apart from "Queen's first E.P.", which has four.[1] The set features artwork from the original UK 7" vinyl releases, except the "Seven Seas Of Rhye" (original German sleeve) and "Killer Queen" (original French sleeve).
