Queen: The Making Of A Night At The Opera tells the track by track story of the album through new interviews with Brian May, Roger Taylor and producer Roy Thomas Baker along with archive interviews with Freddie Mercury and contributions from photographer Mick Rock, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and Ian Hunter from Mott The Hoople amongst others. Illustrated by classic live footage, much of it from the Hyde Park free concert in 1976, and in depth studio analysis the film gives an intimate portrait of the making of a true classic album and is a worthy addition to our acclaimed and highly successful Classic Albums series.

For a Queen fan, an absolute must to add to their collection. For Music fans likewise. The absolute lowdown on how one of the greatest albums of all time was created by one of the greatest bands of all time. With up to date interviews with Brian and Roger each track on the album is examined and the background story retold.

A Must-Have For Every Queen Fan

There's not a lot left to be said about this album's impact on the world of music, nor about the talents of the four brilliant young men who created it. So i'll just say that the documentary tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the making of this classic, going through the album track by track. Utilising archive footage and new interviews and performances from Brian and Roger, it's unmissable. I would have loved to have seen an interview with John Deacon, but as Brian & Roger explain on this disc, John is a very private person and we must respect that. Special mention must be made of Disc 2 which has the full album digitally-remastered and paired with new visuals to compliment the music, you'll never want to put your CD of it on again....buy it!!
