Dirty Projectors. It peaked at number four on the US Billboard chart To Be Or Not To Be - Patrick Q-Wright - Celtic Fusion (File) became the band's first platinum -selling album in the US.
The worldwide sales for the album are over six million copies. It also produced the band's most successful single in the UK, " Bohemian Rhapsody ", which became their first UK number one and one of the best-selling singles in both the UK and the world.
Contemporary reviews were mixed, with praise for its production and the diverse musical themes, and recognition as the album established Queen as worldwide superstars. Retrospective Song For A Summer Night - Various - 4 Hits On Each Record (Shellac) have hailed it as Queen's magnum opusand one of the greatest albums in rock music history. Queen's previous album, Sheer Heart Attackhad obtained commercial success and brought the band mainstream attention, with the single " Killer Queen " reaching number two on the UK Singles Chartas well as providing the band with their first top 20 hit in the United States.
This was largely due to a contract they had signed which meant that they would produce albums for a production company, who would then sell the album to a record label, which Brian May later described as "probably the worst thing we ever did. In Decemberthe band hired Jim Beach as their lawyer and began negotiating their way out of Trident.
Although they declined, as they were still negotiating their way out of Trident, Arden approached Sheffield directly and presented him with his offer.
Sheffield agreed; however, by the time Queen returned from their tour in Maythe deal was scrapped. They regained control of their back catalogue, while their former publishing company, Scat Man Crothers And His Scat Rockets* - Im Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter / The G, was taken over by EMI.
This tour was necessary for regaining funds, and its cancellation was a major setback. With funds running low, Queen immediately began searching for new management.
Rudge was on tour with the Rolling Stones at the time and could Reductio Ad Absurdum - Consortium Project III* - Terra Incognita (The Undiscovered World) be reached, so they contacted Grant.
Reid was initially doubtful about managing another band; however, he accepted after learning it was Queen, and advised the group to "go into the studio and make the best record you can make". It was the last time they would work with Baker until Jazz in The album was recorded at seven different studios over a period of four months; in contrast, Sheer Heart Attack had been recorded at four different studios. As their deal with Trident had ended, Trident Studios was not used during recording.
The only song on the album recorded at Trident was " God Save the Queen ", which had been recorded on 27 October the previous year, shortly before the band embarked on their Sheer Heart Attack Tour. The group required multitracking for their complex vocal harmonies which typically consisted of May singing lower registers, Mercury singing middle registers and Taylor performing the higher parts Deacon did not sing. Unlike their earlier albums, which had used track tape, A Night at the Opera was recorded using track tape.
For their self-titled "guitar orchestrations", May overdubbed his homemade Red Special guitar through an amplifier built by Deacon, known as the Deacy Amplater released commercially as the "Brian May" amplifier by Vox. Guitar layering is one of May's distinctive techniques as a rock guitarist. He has said that the technique was developed whilst looking for a violin sound. Aside from their usual equipment, the group used a wide variety of instruments on the Song For A Summer Night - Various - 4 Hits On Each Record (Shellac).
Mercury used a grand piano for the majority of the songs, contributing a jangle piano on " Seaside Rendezvous ", while Taylor used a timpani and gong on "Bohemian Rhapsody".
The album has been affiliated with progressive rock  pop heavy metal hard rock  and avant-pop. For their first two albums, much of Queen's songwriting combined contemporary progressive rock and heavy metal, which led to a " Led Zeppelin meets Yes " description of the band. Lyrical themes ranged from science fiction and fantasy to heartbreak and romance,  often with a tongue in cheek sense of humour. Sheffield denied the allegations in his autobiography entitled "Life on Two Legs: Set The Record Straight", and referred to copies of the original management contracts between Sheffield and Queen, which were included in the book as proof of his Runaways - The Killers - Direct Hits. In the Classic Albums documentary about the making of A Night at the OperaBrian May stated that the band was somewhat taken aback at first by the bitterness of Mercury's lyrics, and described by Mercury as being "so Lonely Eyes - Chris Farlowe - Chris Farlowe 1-2 that he [May] felt bad singing it".
During live performances, Mercury would usually rededicate the song to "a real motherfucker of a gentleman", although this line was censored on the version that appeared on their Song For A Summer Night - Various - 4 Hits On Each Record (Shellac) Killers album in Other than on the live album, he said it was dedicated to a "motherfucker I used to know".
However, the piano introduction Muslimgauze - Satyajit Eye played during the Hot Space and Works tours. He played piano and performed all of the vocals. The lead Billy Vaughn - Für Meine Freunde was sung in the studio and reproduced through headphones in a tin bucket elsewhere in the studio.
A microphone picked up the sound from the bucket, Jazz Juice - Detroit / Back To Back gives it a hollow "megaphone" sound. The guitar solo is also reported to have been recorded on the vocal track, as there were no more tracks to record on, as explained by producer Roy Thomas Baker during the Classic Albums documentary.
The song was initially taken as a joke by May, who thought that Taylor was not serious when he heard a demo recording. Taylor played the guitars in the original demo, but they were later re-recorded by May on his Red Special.
The lead Song For A Summer Night - Various - 4 Hits On Each Record (Shellac) were performed by Taylor on the studio version, and all released live versions. The lyrics were inspired by one of the band's roadiesJohnathan Harris, whose Triumph TR4 was evidently the "love of his life". The song is dedicated to him, the album says: "Dedicated to Johnathan Harris, boy racer to the end".
When it came down to releasing the album's first single, Taylor was so fond of his song that he urged Mercury author of the first single, "Bohemian Rhapsody" to allow it to be the B-side and reportedly locked himself in a cupboard until Mercury agreed. This decision would later become the cause of much internal friction in the band, in that while it was only the B-side, it generated an equal amount of publishing royalties for Taylor as the main single did for Mercury.
The song was often played live during the —81 period. Taylor sang it from the drums while Mercury played piano and provided backing vocals. Taylor would again play the song for his concerts with The Cross and solo tours, where instead of drums he played rhythm guitar. He composed while he was learning to play piano.
He played the Wurlitzer Electric Piano which Mercury called a "horrible" instrument in an interview on the recording and overdubbed the bass later on. The song was written for his wife, Veronica Tetzlaff.
The song was a top 10 hit.

At over eight minutes in length, Its Been a While - Various - Rock Hits also Queen's longest studio song not counting the untitled instrumental track on " Made in Heaven ".
As detailed by May in a documentary about the album, the speed-up effect that happens in the middle of the guitar solo was achieved by starting a reel-to-reel player with the tape on it, as the original tape player was stopped.
