Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The soundtrack contains original Queen recordings as featured in the movie. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day

"Freddie Mercury was one of the most charismatic, complex and fascinating characters in British rock music. The story of Queen is a well-known one but this new film focuses on Freddie Mercury and the solo projects he worked on outside of Queen. Using extensive archive footage of interviews with Freddie Mercury, concerts, video shoots and personal material, much of it previously unseen, along with new interviews with friends and colleagues, a portrait emerges of a man who was very different to his flamboyant onstage public persona. Freddie Mercury touched the lives of millions through his career both with Queen and as a solo performer and this new programme will delight and inform his legions of fans"--Container

"This Hammersmith Christmas concert was the culmination of the 26-date 'Queen invite you to A Night At The Opera UK tour of 1975,' and was the last show of a very eventful and exciting year for Queen. Queen performed 'Bohemian Rhapsody' for the first time during this tour. Spirits were high within the band for this show; 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was enjoying its fourth week at No. 1 and 'A Night At The Opera' was climbing the album charts on its way to No. 1, which it achieved three days after this concert. The show was simulcast live on both BBC Radio 1 and 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' television show on BBC 2; the programme's host Bob Harris introduced the band on stage."
Barcelona by Freddie Mercury( Recording )

62 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anlässlich des 66. Geburtstags des 1991 verstorbenen Sängers Freddie Mercury wurde u.a. das gemeinsam mit der spanischen Sopranistin Montserrat Caballé aufgenommene Album 'Barcelona' wieder veröffentlicht, das seit 1999 nicht mehr lieferbar war. Zur Zeit der Aufnahme, 1988, war die Kooperation eines Rockstars mit einer Operndiva noch etwas sehr Aussergewöhnliches. Einmal mehr zeigte Mercury, dass er mehr Facetten und Talente hatte als nur den exaltierten Showman auf der Rockbühne. Das Titelstück war der offizielle Song zu den Olympischen Spielen 1992 in der katalanischen Metropole und hätte von beiden bei der Eröffnung aufgeführt werden sollen. Dazu kam es aber nicht, Freddie Mercury starb wenige Monate davor. 'Barcelona' war auch eine Art Initialzündung für grenzüberschreitende Zusammenarbeit von E-Musik und Popularmusik

Queen II by Queen (Musical group)( Recording )

7 editions published in 2011 in Undetermined and English and held by 63 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
