Merge w/Band on the Run[edit]

I think this article should be merged. They're practically the same album, only the 25th Anniversary Edition has a disc two. I'm in favor of merging. Anyone else? Karen Carpenter's Biggest Fan 02:33, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Only if Queen + Paul Rodgers is merged with Queen (band), otherwise no. There can not be one rule for one, and one for another.

This is an album, not a band. And this is only a rerelease. It's THE SAME ALBUM, just with a second disc. Look at all the rereleases in the world. How many of them have separate articles? Merge --Soakologist 16:55, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

Definitely agree it should be merged. There's not enough here to justify a separate article. Pawnkingthree (talk) 12:10, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Queen + Paul Rodgers is actually how they credit the music for that collaboration, perhaps that should be looked into, but that is an entirely separate issue. This however is the same album as the original Band on the Run. All other re releases are simply noted near the bottom of the original article, with a second track listing for the new edition.

Merge. I agree with almost all of you. This is just a special edition of Band on the Run, not a different album, and should be listed in the same article. - AyaK (talk) 01:03, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Merge: One more vote to merge. joeinthebox (talk) 09:13, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
