Queen II by Queen (Musical group)( Recording )
46 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
March 2011 sees the re-release of Queens first five albums - one of the most exciting and influential back catalogues of all time. Recorded in the maelstrom of the early 1970's London music scene Queen created a groundbreaking and unique soundtrack that remains globally influential today. Theatrical, imaginative, diverse, melodic and unpredictable they had a sound and a look all of their own. Sitting alongside their contemporaries like Led Zep and David Bowie, Queen set the standard for British rock in the 1970's and became one of the most thrilling, glamorous and downright rock n roll bands of all time, directly influencing a contemporary roll call of artists from Foo Fighters & Axl Rose to Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. 'Queen II' is the real beginning of Queen as we know it. It's the first time we hear the multi layered overdubs, the harmonies, the varied musical styles (ballads, folk, blues, thrash metal, pop and rock, it's all there). It also includes their first hit single 'Seven Seas of Rhye', which led to the first of many iconic performances on Top of the Pops. The band recorded 'Queen II' in just over a month in 1973 ahead of its release in 1974. The album cover was shot by legendary photographer Mick Rock and inspired by a Marlene Dietrich portrait. The image was later brought to life in the revolutionary Bohemian Rhapsody video

Forever by Queen (Musical group)( Recording )
7 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spearheading the exciting new Queen album, 'Queen Forever,' are three previously unreleased Queen tracks featuring late singer Freddie Mercury! The tracks include a long anticipated track from Queen and Michael Jackson, "There Must Be More to Life Than This", a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track "Let Me In Your Heart Again" originating from the band's The Works album recording sessions, and a scorching new stripped-down ballad version of Mercury's first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, "Love Kills". The rest of the package brings together Queen hits, classic tracks, and new takes on well-known songs, matched with band recordings Brian May describes as "things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits" in a collection immaculately assembled by May and Roger Taylor themselves. The tracks are all linked to represent a definitive collection of Queen's timeless love songs. The Queen and Michael Jackson duet, "There Must Be More to Life Than This", began as a song written by Mercury during sessions for Queen's 1981 album, Hot Space. The band recorded a backing track, but the song was never completed. Mercury visited Michael Jackson at his home studio in Los Angeles where he recorded Jackson singing the song for an unfinished version. Queen revived the track during sessions for 1984's The Works, but again it was not finished. A year later, Freddie's own version of the song surfaced on his debut solo album, 1985's Mr Bad Guy. This new production of the powerful ballad fuses Queen's original backing track and Mercury and Jackson's distinctive vocals, and has been produced and remixed by celebrated Madonna/Robbie Williams producer William Orbit. Perhaps the biggest revelation on Queen Forever is Brian May's composition, "Let Me In Your Heart Again". The song was first recorded by Queen for The Works album, but not completed at the time and has remained overlooked since then. An authentic, live-in-the-studio track from the same golden age as Radio Ga Ga and I Want To Break Free, this never-before-heard Queen track shows off Freddie's timeless vocals and features newly recorded guitar parts and new backing vocals from Brian and Roger. This thrilling track finally reaches us nearly 30 years after Freddie first laid down his original vocal.The third new track, "Love Kills", was composed by Freddie Mercury and famed German producer/songwriter Giorgio Moroder for the soundtrack to Moroder's newly restored and tinted version of Fritz Lang's 1927 classic silent movie Metropolis in 1984 to which he added a pop soundtrack featuring various music artists. Mercury recorded a high-energy dance version of the song that became his debut solo hit in 1985. However, it is less well known that all four members of Queen played on the original track. Prior to Queen embarking on their recent tour with lead singer Adam Lambert, Brian May proposed performing an acoustic ballad version of Love Kills, which became one of the most memorable moments of the current Queen & Adam Lambert shows. This new Queen-Freddie studio version is shaped in the same ballad style and revives the Queen original with some newly recorded guitars and drums by May and Taylor, becoming a glorious showcase for one of Freddie's most adrenaline-charged vocal performances. 'Queen Forever' is both a showcase for these exclusive new recordings, but also an enduring tribute to the extraordinary musical achievements of John Deacon, Brian May, Roger Taylor and the late, great Freddie Mercury whose singular talent we can again get to marvel at with the arrival of these previously unheard tracks
