This was Queen’s forth album built on the band’s UK success but in the U.S. it established them as a force to be reckoned with.Probably the best known song on the album “Bohemian Rhapsody” was a U.S. number one over Christmas 1975, helped by what is seen as one of the first real music videos.
Another big hit from the album “You’re My Best Friend”, written by John Deacon, reached number 7 in the UK and 16 in the U.S.
“Bohemian Rhapsody” ‘re-entered the charts again in 1991 following Mercury’s death in 1991, becoming one of the biggest selling singles of all time.
This was the featured album on my show broadcast on Hospital Radio Bedford 16th May 2017
