26) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Queen-'A Night At the Opera'
A few months back I watched a short documentary on the making of this album. I have since found a CD copy of it, and I was shocked to see that I had only played 'News of the World' as an MMR. That most likely has something to do with the fact that I've only recently have tried to track down their albums. I have a couple of Greatest Hits comps, and a couple of the 80's albums, but I do not have a copy of my second favorite Queen album, "Sheer Heart Attack". I decided to go ahead and play what would be my third favorite, (possibly fourth if one includes the Flash Gordon soundtrack), album by the band. Of course it features one of their biggest hits in "Bohemian Rhapsody", and I really like the John Deacon ballad, "You're My Best Friend" a lot. We hadn't played a Queen album in a while, so this one fills the bills. Their "rock opera" as it were. "Sheer Heart Attack" will be next, sometime soon. - "Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here" - Michael - MFL
