This item has been sold.


Offered for sale is a limited edition white vinyl pressing of A Night at the Opera by Queen, issued in France in 1978.

About this copy: This copy of A Night at the Opera is a French issue, rather than the more common pressing from the Netherlands.

The cover is VG+, with a couple of bent corners and a stray small black mark in the lower right hand corner.  There is a large hype sticker on the cover that says “Disque en Couleur.”

The white vinyl disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any, play.

A beautiful copy of a terrific record and the first French white vinyl pressing we’ve ever had for sale.

Background:  A Night at the Opera was the fourth album by Queen and is likely their best-known LP.  Released in 1975, the album reached #1 in the UK and #4 in the U.S., where it has sold more than three million copies.

Allmusic.com gave A Night at the Opera a 5 star review:

Queen were straining at the boundaries of hard rock and heavy metal on Sheer Heart Attack, but they broke down all the barricades on A Night at the Opera, a self-consciously ridiculous and overblown hard rock masterpiece. …It’s prog rock with a sense of humor as well as dynamics, and Queen never bettered their approach anywhere else.
