I've not contributed here before so please be gentle with me...

Have any of you read The Beatles complete Recording sessiions? - fantastic stuff for anoraks such as my self. I was wondering has anyone put together a similar where, when and who of the early (first three) albums? If not it would be great to put together a picture of those sessions using the Queenzone collective super knowledge of all things queen.

What do you think? ...again be kind.

It a book called "Queen": The Early Years by
Mark Hodkinson

Synopsis
The first biography of the legendary British band to focus on their formative years. it highlights the desperately urgent days of pre-stardom, when the Queen quartet played with bands like The Reaction, The Opposition, 1984 and Sour Milk Sea. Author Mark Hodkinson has interviewed over 60 friends and colleagues of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon and pieced together a fascinating web of stories that for the first time tell the story of the emergent Queen. From the tiny downbeat village of Oadby in Leicestershire, where John Deacon grew up to the exotic splendour of Zanzibar, where Faroukh Bulsara was born, Hodkinson offers a new and enticing version of Queen. In tracing these unpublished stories he also examines the Queen era before and immediately after stardom. This is the first genuine account of Queen's rise to stardom, as told by those who knew the band and watched from the front row. Illustrated with many previously unseen early photographs of the four members of Queen.

Certainly, a good read, but considering "Queen: The Early Years" exclusively concentrates on Queen BEFORE they became Queen - what exactly has this book to do with the recording of first three Queen albums - ala 'The Beatles complete Recording Sessions' by Mark Lewisohn?

Many thanks for the thread pointers and all your hard work and research John (looks like I've got a lot of reading and note taking to do!!). You make this forum worth reading.

Cheers
