After "We Will Rock You" became a hit in London various other productions were put on around the world. One of the earliest was in Australia. The cast came from around Australia and New Zealand.

To help promote this production, a special version of the British musical soundtrack was released to help protmote the production. This edition is noteworthy for having new album artwork and the inclusion of a new recording of Another One Bites The Dust by Queen featuring as vocalist Annie Crummer who played the part of Killer Queen.

This recording was to later receive a single release in New Zealand.
