A Day At The Races LP


A Day At The Races’, Queen's fifth studio album was recorded at Sarm East, The Manor and Wessex Studios, between July and November 1976. It was the first to be self-produced. The album followed its predecessor A Night At The Opera in borrowing its title from a film by the Marx Brothers. Like A Night At The Opera - which many think of as its sister album - A Day At The Races is a greatly diverse work, exploring all kinds of musical styles and genres; from the heavy Tie Your Mother Down and White Man, to Freddie's delicate You Take My Breath Away and John's You And I.  A Day At The Races was released on December 10th 1976 and peaked at No 1 in the UK. In America, issued a week later, it reached No 5 on the US Billboard album chart and became Queen's first American album to achieve Gold status - and subsequently Platinum.
