Queen: Album by Album | Martin Popoff
2 posts | 1 read | 5 to read
A thoughtfully curated and gloriously illustrated retrospective of the bands studio releases, Queen, comes just in time for the 45th anniversary of their debut LP and biopic. Formed in 1970, Queen went on to become one of the most popularand most successfulrock bands of all time. Even following the untimely death of beloved and magnetic frontman Freddie Mercury, and nearly 50 years after their formation, interest in the band has continued, evidenced by scores of reissues, arena tours with surviving members, and a feature-film biopic. In this new installment in Voyageur Presss Album by Album series, rock journo Martin Popoff convenes a cast of 19 Queen experts and superfans to discuss all 15 of the bands studio albums (including their soundtrack for the 1980 film Flash Gordon). Panelists include Queen experts, rock journalists, musicians, and record industry figures. The results are freewheeling discussions delving into the individual songs, the circumstances that surrounded the recording of each album, the band and contemporary rock contexts into which they were released, and more. The engaging text of this beautifully designed book is illustrated throughout with rare live performance and candid offstage photography, as well as scads of rare Queen ephemera. The Album by Album series is a unique approach to the rock bio, injecting the varied voices of several contributors. The results have even the most diehard fans rushing back to their MP3 players (or turntables) to confirm the details and opinions expressed!

tessavi Just watched the 'sing a long' version of the movie with @tokyoseg Awesome experience! 10mo
Samplergal @tessavi please tell me more about that. I want to sing a long. 10mo
tessavi @Samplergal they stream lyrics on the screen and you're 'allowed' to sing a long, clap etc. Which in Japanese theatres is quite unique 😊 10mo
LeslieO Thanks for the great Christmas idea for my husband! 10mo
Samplergal @tessavi wow! I would LOVE that. ( I almost did it anyway! Lol) 10mo
Reecaspieces I saw bohemian rhapsody this week. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I especially recommend seeing it in the theatre because the music is spectacular in surround sound (edited) 10mo
