The lead-off single of album is a track that is very much Roger, a well-crafted, socially-motivated song which is very powerful. The Single Version cuts some lyrics and instrumental-bits, but still works very well. The album version is still better, but this is a close runner-up, retaining all the strength of the original.

A B-side from the "New Dark Ages" single, this version is the same as the album version, except that fades out thirty seconds later, so you get to hear more of the song at the end. This version predated the album, making the album version, technically, an edit of this version.

A mastering difference here compared the original 1991 CD release. The break point between Millionaire and Put It All Down To Love occurs in a slightly different place on The Lot Edition of the album. The music remains all intact.

Germany Life Changes CD single
On the album, there's a bridge between the end of "Millionaire" and this song. As it appears on the album's CD, this guitar bridge ends "Millionaire," but here it kicks off "Put It All Down To Love." In short, there's nothing new here you won't find on the album, but for a stand-alone version, this is the way to go.

This single is one the hard to find items in Queen collecting, and if you do find it, expect to pay an arm and a leg for it. It had the misfortune of being issued just before Freddie's death, and because of the nature of the track, the record company withdrew it from the market a few days later. Add to that it has a non-album b-side track ("Heartland") and its value grows exponentially. As for this version, it is a decent edit of the album version, cropping two minutes throughout, while still holding together nicely.

Life Changes (The Lot 1st Pressing Error) 5:54
Written by Moss/Noone/Edney/Macrae
Appears on:
The Lot 1st Pressing
An extremely noticeable mistake appears at the end of the track (about 5:30). The track abruptly cuts out, followed by a few seconds of silence before the song starts again, then fades out. Of all the mistakes on the 1st Pressing of The Lot boxed set, this is easily the most glaring. This error was fixed for the Second Pressing of the box set.

Heartland

In a radio interview before Blue Rock was released, the band said they'd recorded twenty-five songs. This was one of them, and whether it's worth paying upwards of $300 (US) to get the single to find it is up to you. The song itself is excellent, with the lead vocals by writter Peter Noone, and easily could have made the album. The CD single that this track appears on has become very collectible; it was withdrawn shortly after release due to Freddie's health.

This is the same track issued earlier on the "Final Destination" single, except Roger's introduction is edited off, which is why it's a little shorter here.
