A night at the opera by Queen (Musical group) ( Recording )
94 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Opulent und bombastisch, aber auch humorvoll kommt das vierte Queen-Album daher. <<A Night At The Opera>> ist ein schrankenloses Rock-Album, wechselt von hartem Rock (<<Death on Two Legs>>) zu Unvergessliche Songselodieseligem Pop (<<You're My Best Friend>>) und lässt auch die britische Music Hall-Tradition (<<Seaside Rendezvous>>) nicht aus. Und bei <<Good Company>> imitiert Gitarrist Brian May gar eine komplette Jazz-Band. -- Diese kunterbunte und abwechslungsreiche Mixtur bracht der Band den weltweiten Durchbruch. Obwohl das meiste Scheinwerferlicht auf Sänger und Frontmann Freddie Mercury gerichtet war, ist <<A Night At The Opera>> aber ein klares Band-Album. Alle vier Musiker schrieben die elf Songs dieses Meisterwerks. -- <<Bohemian Rhapsody>>, das pièce de résistance des Albums, wurde in der Folge zum bekanntesten und beliebtesten Queen-Stück und mit fast sechs Minuten Dauer zum überraschenden Single-Welt-Hit und Evergreen.

Queen II by Queen (Musical group) ( Recording )
47 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 238 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
