Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again? Bookended by a picaresque tale of two seaside lovers sung in high and low registers by Mercury, it was a showcase for an extended May guitar solo dating back to Blag , a song by his old band Smile.

By contrast, Mercury threw in everything from waspish glam rock Flick Of The Wrist , a reflection of their increasingly strained relationship with their management to old-fashioned vaudeville Bring Back Leroy Brown , complete with ukelele solo from May. In this creative environment, the rhythm section also rocked up with material. John Deacon chipped in with the slight but perfectly formed Misfire. But while Mercury was still living with girlfriend Mary Austin, he reputedly told his closest friends that he was gay.

Lily Of The Valley was utterly heartfelt. All such personal distractions were kept out of the studio. This drive for perfection ensured there was no fat on Sheer Heart Attack.

Just two songs failed to make the final album. The other was the song that gave the album its title, the frantic, Taylor-penned Sheer Heart Attack. Little more than the bare bones of a song when they started, the drummer failed to finish it in time. The band in the next studio at the time? The Sex Pistols. Between the two, Queen embarked on their first proper world tour, headlining.

This time there were no illnesses or riots, though they were greeted by scenes approaching Beatlemania when they arrived in Japan in April The effort that went into Sheer Heart Attack had paid off. They had greater success later, but none of it would have be possible without the groundwork laid down here. Freddie Mercury put it more succinctly. As usual, we put ourselves under pressure.

There was DJ commentary between songs, and it is cut on many subsequent bootlegs of the broadcast. Unfortunately there is also commentary during Freddie's vocal solo at the peak of Somebody To Love. A radio station called "Jovem Pan 2 FM" broadcast the concert live in stereo sound, but a recording has never seen the light of day.

There is apparently an audience recording from this show out there as well. Radio Bandeirantes broadcast the show again a few years later, with a few different edits between songs.

    Sheer Heart Attack is the third studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 8 November by EMI Records in the United Kingdom and by Elektra Records in the United States.
