Today, on October 31st, 1975 – Queen Story!
‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ released in the UK
👉 Freddie Mercury’s masterpiece!

  • Bohemian Rhapsody spent nine weeks at the top of the charts in 1975 –

🔸Roy Thomas Baker, the man ultimately responsible for assembling the epic, describes Bo Rhap’s creation thus:
“Freddie was sitting in his apartment and he said, ‘I’ve got this idea for a song.’ So he started playing it on the piano – it had some words missing and there were some bits of melody he hadn’t worked out – just the basic framework. Then he stopped and said, ‘Now dears, this is where the opera section comes in’ I went, oh my God…”

“It was going to be a brief interlude of few Galileos and then we’d get back to the rock part of the song. When we started doing the opera section properly it just got longer and longer, and we added more and more blank tape. Every day we though, ‘It’s done now’, and then Freddie would come in with another lot of lyrics and say, ‘I’ve added a few more Galileos here, dear,’ and it just got bigger and bigger.”

🔸One witness to the Queen recording process was Gary Langan, who later became a founder-member of The Art Of Noise, but who was then 20 and working as an assistant engineer at Sarm West Studios in Basing Street, jut off Ladbroke Grove. He worked with Queen from the mixing of Now I’m Here, on Sheer Heart Attack, through to the recording of News Of the World.
“I can remember the time when we played the mix back from start to finish. I stood at the back of he room and my jaw was on my chest. I just hadn’t heard or felt or witnessed anything like this track. It was just amazing. You knew then it was destined for such greatness. It had this whole charisma about it.”
