Mastered by Bob Ludwig. Half-speed lacquers cut at Abbey Road Studios. Queen is the eponymous debut album by Queen. Released in July 1973. It was recorded at Trident Studios and De Lane Lea Music Centre, London, with production by Roy Thomas Baker (as Roy Baker), John Anthony and Queen.
Before Queen found their feet and decided to be a flamboyant, slightly glam and later a tongue-in-cheek rock band, Queen were churning out well-crafted no-nonsense heavy rock classics. This album is a mixture of ballads ("Doin' Alright") and classy heavy metal ("Liar" and "Great King Rat").
