Queen - The Making Of ANATO (Classic Album)
In 1975, Queen released what can only be described as one of the finest albums ever written. A Night At The Opera, Queens fourth studio album, was a cross pollination of musical genres that pushed all existing boundaries on what was considered the norm for a contemporary album and would catapult Queen into superstardom.
'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.
