......night at the opera and day at races were relaesed as a double cd with another title in let´s say 1976 ?

i think that would be now recognised as top 5 album of all time
for me those are both supreb albums but i thought about what if they released it as a double cd
i mean look at the tracklist for that album
and i think that it could have happened
the songs for both albums were wrote in pretty close time
any thoughts?


She was my lover

It was a shame that she died

But the constitution´s right on my side

Cos I cought my lover in my neighbours bed

I got retribution, filled´em full of lead

ah
queen were always on the other side of regular
it wasn´t popular to relase single that last 6 minute also, but they did it

but i can always play them back to back :)

I think it's good they didn't release it as a double one... Somehow I think it would have lost the impact, it would be too much.. C'mon- ANATO is everywhere mentioned as one of the best albums of all time... There's no need to change history in this regard- it's beautifiul enough as it is. Now- what if they properly produced WORKS, heh? Or even better- made HOT SPACE a bit rockier (just like live version of Staying Power).

that would make queen the greatest inovators ever!! A cd release in 1976... Too bad nobody could play it. Unless of course, they first released the Queen CD-player.

I burned a CD with my favorite Queen songs on it, and it ends with Bohemian Rhapsody-Teo Torriate. I love those two songs next to each other.

I think it was good they didn't do that, because I think it's better to have 2 great albums than 1 great album. Did you understand me? If not, just forget it..


heyheyheyhey, it was the DNA...
