This is a wonderful addition to the excellent “Classic Albums” collection. This was truly a ground breaking album in late 1975 and is broken down on this DVD in order of the original track listing. I am consistently pleased with the quality of sound and video of the “Classic Album” DVD’s (this being my 4th; the others: Pink Floyd, Deep Purple & Stevie Wonder). This, like the others brings back key individuals that helped to make the album a success and a notch above others (i.e.: original engineers, music critics, fellow musicians and DJ’s). They describe how no synthesizers were used for their sound. Multi-tracking, piano flourishes, a harp, a ukulele, and multi-layered guitars all combine for a great and unique sound.

Great, informative (like all the Classic Albums series DVDs)

I liked Queen but never knew details about them. This was very informative in uncovering how a classic 70’s album was made..

I love Queen and the more bits of trivia I find – the better! This DVD was great in the details of each song – actually, not just the details – but the whole experience and feelings that were involved. I highly recommend it for true Queen fans!
