Queen DVD: Making of A Night At The Opera
Produced with the help and cooperation of May and Taylor (Mercury succumbed to AIDS in 1991; Deacon retired in 1992), the DVD contains an exhaustive cut by cut run through of all 12 tracks, new interviews with May, Deacon and producer Roy Thomas Baker, archival performance footage, interviews with Mercury, and comments from such rock luminaries as Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Extreme’s Nuno Bettencourt and Mott The Hoople’s Ian Hunter, among others. It also features brand new acoustic performances of “’39” and “Love Of My Life” by May, and a special drum and acoustic demonstration of “I’m In Love With My Car” by Taylor.
The Classic Albums DVD series has, in its decade-long existence, cross-referenced a wide spectrum of international rock music from The Band, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Never Mind The Bollocks Here’s The Sex Pistols to Dark Side Of The Moon, Metallica, Rumors, Electric Ladyland, Nevermind and Graceland.
Filled with revelations, acoustic performances made just for the occasion, archival concert footage and insightful analysis, Classic Albums goes beyond the standard in-depth behind-the-scenes documentary, and, in so doing, has created its own art form.
