Queen - A Night At The Opera (1975). Update Required To play the media you will need to either update your browser to a recent version or update your Flash plugin.

A Night at the Opera is the fourth studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 21 November 1975 by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and by Elektra Records in the United States. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker and Queen, it was reportedly the most expensive album ever recorded at the time of its release. The album's title is taken from the Marx Brothers film of the same name.

Commercially it was a huge risk. EMI execs nervously winced at the final (expensive) deliverable, an eclectic set of songs, many of which did not rock, or were too skewed to the artsier, experimental side of pomp-rock. Was it too exotic, and/or weird, and/or beautifully overwrought for the ears of the market, . Hey Jude clocked in well past 7 minute. Money-wise, Bo-Rap and its home Opera LP hit the jackpot; the rest is well-to-poorly scripted history.

A Night At The Opera: Queen’s Regal Invite Could Not Be Ignored. A Night At The Opera, as we all now know, is a masterpiece. Everything from its title (borrowed from The Marx Brothers 1935 movie) to the music, the album’s artwork and the whole pomp and circumstance of the entire package is majestic. And so the album was released on 21 November 1975 and as a result, Christmas belonged to Queen. The sold-out tour that had begun a week before the album’s release culminated with a Christmas Eve concert at Hammersmith Odeon that was videotaped and broadcast by the BBC on The Old Grey Whistle Test. Their North American tour kicked off in the fourth week of January and this too proved to be a triumph. A Night At The Opera soared to N. on the Billboard album chart and ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ became the band’s first top ten single on the Hot 100 while Queen were touring America.

Using the multi-layered guitars of its predecessor as a foundation, A Night at the Opera encompasses metal ("Death on Two Legs," "Sweet Lady"), pop (the lovely, shimmering "You're My Best Friend"), campy British music hall ("Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon," "Seaside Rendezvous"), and mystical prog rock ("'39," "The. Prophet's Song"), eventually bringing it all together on the pseudo-operatic "Bohemian Rhapsody

This grouping gathers together all versions of the "A Night At The Opera" album, originally released in 1975 on vinyl and tape, as well as subsequent repressings and bootleg versions. Officially, the entire back catalogue was re-issued for the first time on CD in 1986, and again on CD/tape in remastered form in 1991 for the US market (via Hollywood Records and adding a few non-album tracks or remixes not included on the original versions). Produced by Roy Thomas Baker and Queen, it was the most expensive album ever recorded at the time of its release. The album takes its name from the Marx Brothers film of the same name, which the band watched one night at the studio complex when recording.
