THE QUEEN CHRONOLOGY: THE RECORDING & RELEASE HISTORY OF THE BAND
Format: 8.5" x 11" Paperback
Publisher: Across The Board Books™
Release Date: September 17th, 2013
Originally an ebook only, demand was so high for the book to be released in a physical format that Across The Board Books™ knew it had to make it happen! For this new format, it was decided that it would be best to go back to the original painting by co-author Patrick Lemieux and create the cover using all new elements, rather than simply upscaling the smaller format Kindle Edition cover previously used for the ebook.
The Print Edition will also feature updated content, with new entries and Vault Descriptions. These updates will appear in the next Kindle Edition on the same day the Print book is released.
From the original book description:
The Queen Chronology is a comprehensive account of the studio recording and release history of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, John Deacon and Roger Taylor, who joined forces in 1971 as the classic line-up of the rock band Queen.
For nearly 40 years, Queen has both topped the charts and embedded itself in the musical landscape worldwide, with such hits as “We Will Rock You,” We Are The Champions,” “Another One Bites The Dust” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Their rock musical, We Will Rock You, and their Queen Extravaganza official tribute production both continue to carry on the band’s legacy to audiences long after the tragic passing of singer Freddie Mercury.
Eight years of extensive research have gone into the creation of the Chronology, which covers the very beginnings of band members’ careers, their earliest songwriting efforts and recording sessions, through the recording and releasing of Queen’s 15 original studio albums with their classic line-up, to the present-day solo careers of Brian May and Roger Taylor. All of this information is presented date by date in chronological order, with detailed descriptions of each song version, including those both released and known to be unreleased. Every Queen and solo album, single, non-album track, edit, remix and extended version is examined, as are known demos or outtakes, pre-Queen recordings and guest appearances. It’s all here in one place: The Queen Chronology!
