Does anyone know how Queen's music briefly ended up on the USA/Canadian K-Tel record label in 1984?

They did many budget albums of big bands. They released one of the best Bowie Best Ofs in 1980 while he was still on RCA.

Side One ends with STL.

Track listing on the back sleeve has small pix of NOTW, ANATO, Hot Space, and The Game (yes, the 'complete-ist' in me from years ago has this Warner Special Products LP)

Note how WWRY / WATC are on separate sides, TYMD is rightfully included, and 'halleluiah'.....so is 'Body Language'!

there are two different versions. One with the blue stripe on the upper left and another one which is rarer with a red stripe saying "giant color poster included" and of course a poster included.

Also there was a VHS release with Body Language and Calling All Girls.

Has it been digitalized yet?? Can't find it on YT.

well i guess that, since the Greatest Video Hits 2 DVD release, content of this VHS is obsolete. ;)

Nevertheless, the VHS itself is probably quite valuable as I guess stocks were quite limited.

Bad photograph rendering. ...the only two who were really facing those directions were John and Brian.

The other two look like bizarro world

Yes that poster is unbelievably bad. I can't image why anyone would pick such a photo.
