About this copy: This copy of Queen is a 1981 Japanese pressing of an LP that was originally released in 1973.

While the record, cover, and obi all have the P-6550E catalog number, the dead wax of the disc has the original P-8427E number stamped in it, meaning this LP was pressed from the same stampers as the original 1973 issue.

The cover is M-, with trace corner wear.  The obi is M-.  The original lyric insert is M-.

The disc is M-, with a couple of spindle marks on the labels but no marks on the vinyl.  Beautiful disc!

A beautiful copy of an album that rarely turns up complete.

Background: Queen was released in July 1973 and reached #24 on the UK charts, but peaked at only #83 on the U.S. charts, though it later was certified gold.

Allmusic.com gave Queen a 3 star review:

Like any patchy but promising debut from a classic rock group, it’s often easy to underrate Queen’s eponymous 1973 debut, since it has no more than one well-known anthem and plays more like a collection of ideas than a cohesive album. But what ideas! Almost every one of Queen’s signatures are already present, from Freddie Mercury’s operatic harmonies to Brian May’s rich, orchestral guitar overdubs and the suite-like structures of “Great King Rat.”
