Queen A Day At The Races Album Review
Released 10 December 1976 Queens fifth studio album.
The follow up album to A Night At The Opera And really could have been a double album
Tie Your Mother Down kicks the album off. Not a big hit in the charts but still a firm favourite with Queen fans
You Take My Breath Away follows a typical piano ballad by Freddie Mercury which only he could do.
Long Away played on Burns 12 String Guitar and sang by Brian May is a brilliant song though failed in the charts in the US
The Millionaire Waltz about John Reid is quite brilliant with lots of twists and turns and some very good guitar work by Brian.
You and I which was a b side to Tie Your Mother Down was John Deacons Song which gives a nice feel to the album.
Side two begins with the biggest hit from the album Somebody To Love which reached number two in the U.K. charts stopped only by Shawaddywaddy
White Man follows which is a song about native Indians
Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy follows which was a hit and played by Queen on top of the Pops
Drowse is Rogers song with Brian May on slide guitar and is one of my favourite Roger songs
The album ends with the amazing Teo Torriatte dedicated to the Japanese Queen fans
