20 May 1977, “Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy” is released as a single with “Death On Two Legs (Dedicated To…)” on the A-side and “Tenement Funster” and “White Queen (As It Began)” on the B-side (the Queen’s first EP – Extended Play)

Roger Taylor said of the EP back in 1977, “We wanted to give people a taste of our first four albums.” Included on the EP: “Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy”, a Queen produced Top 20 U.K. hit from the album “A Day at the Races” (released in December 1976); “Death on Two Legs (Dedicated to…)” from “A Night at the Opera” (released in November 1975); “Tenement Funster” from “Sheer Heart Attack” (released November 1974); and the extremely rare stand-alone single version of “White Queen (As It Began)”, a track from “Queen II” (released February 1974). Queen and Roy Thomas Baker produced the latter three tracks.

The lead single is “Good Old-Fashioned Loverboy” and it’s the 8th track of the album “A Day At The Races.” This ragtime extravaganza was written by Freddie Mercury. With his sly vocals, you can hear the enjoyment of the studio in this item – glam, music hall and witty, there is more than a touch of the autobiographical in this decadent nighttime adventure.

It features sound engineer and co-producer Mike Stone taking over the lead vocals for one line: “Hey, boy, where’d you get it from? Hey, boy, where did you go?”

“It’s called ‘Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy’, and it’s in my ‘ragtime’ mood that I get a chance to do on every album and this time, this is something I’ve come up with this time around.”
