A nice copy of an album that’s quite hard to find in good condition, as most copies have badly worn covers.
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.
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.
