What did the original Queen II album cover look like?

It can't be the current one because that photo was taken from the Bohemian Rhapsody video pose!

No, the picture was taken for the album cover. For the video they decided to 'bring that photo to life'.

So they recreated the concept of the photo for the video.

I don't know if you have the album or not but it was/is pretty cool.The album cover opens up much like a book.The inside is all white with them all dressed in white Freddie holding a feather I'm sure you've seen the picture .The sleeve which the record is in is one side white the other side black with the lyrics of course. Albums were great you really felt like you bought something.Anyway that's my stroll down memory lane.

this is Freddie's classic Deitrich pose. if you watch the "making of bo rhap" docu you will see how the II cover came to life for £5,000...think how much modern videos cost by comparison
