Queen

Sheer Heart Attack (Remastered, 180 Gram) (LP)

$16.99

or 4 installments of $4.25 by Afterpay More info

Superb 180 gram remastered vinyl with all original artwork, (Including inner-sleeves).  Sheer Heart Attack is widely considered Queen’s best pre-“Bohemian Rhapsody” album. Containing their first global hit single, “Killer Queen,” it certainly qualifies as one of Queen’s best all-time releases. Just prior to the recording of the album, Queen was making very important inroads in America by opening a US tour for Mott the Hoople, but had to cut it short when guitarist Brian May became seriously ill. Instead of moping, the band immediately began writing and recording SHEER HEART ATTACK while May recovered. Upon its release, fans were pleasantly surprised to witness Queen’s growth–although there were still plenty of hard rock numbers, other musical styles were tried and perfected, while the energy of their live show shined through in many of their new songs. The album’s other popular single, “Now I’m Here,” would prove to be a concert staple for years to come, while the opening “Brighton Rock” is a superb showcase for the many talents of May. Perhaps most significantly, singer Freddie Mercury really came into his own on SHEER HEART ATTACK, having no problem handling ragtime tunes (“Bring Back That Leroy Brown”), sounds from the Caribbean (“Misfire”), unaccompanied piano ballads (“Dear Friends”), or raging heavy metal (“Stone Cold Crazy,” “Flick Of The Wrist”).
