On this day 1975 Queen started recording 'Bohemian Rhapsody' at Rockfield studio's in Monmouth, Wales, (the song was recorded over three weeks). Freddie Mercury had mentally prepared the song beforehand and directed the band throughout the sessions. May, Mercury, and Taylor sang their vocal parts continually for ten to twelve hours a day, resulting in 180 separate overdubs, combined with various instruments: acoustic piano, electric bass, electric guitars, drums. On top of that came the lead vocal, and not to forget the Chinese gong.
A TRUE MASTERPIECE
