Queen – A Day at the Races (2015 Reissue Half-Speed Mastered on 180g Vinyl)
Released on 10 December 1976, A Day at the Races is the fifth studio album by Queen. It was the band’s first completely self-produced album, and the first not to feature producer Roy Thomas Baker. Recorded at The Manor, Sarm West and Wessex Studios in England, A Day at the Races was engineered by Mike Stone. The album serves as a companion album to the band’s previous album, A Night at the Opera, both taking their names from Marx Brothers films, as well as sharing similar packaging and eclectic musical themes.
The album peaked at No. 1 in the UK, Japan and the Netherlands. It reached No. 5 on the US Billboard 200 and was Queen’s third album to ship gold in the US, and subsequently reached platinum status in the same country.
The album garnered positive reviews from critics. In 2006, a national BBC poll saw A Day at the Races voted the 67th greatest album of all time.
