First Five Queen Albums To See Reissue In March

March 14, 2011 sees the re-release of Queen's first five albums — one of the most exciting and influential back catalogues of all time. Recorded in the maelstrom of the early 1970s London music scene, Queen created a groundbreaking and unique soundtrack that remains globally influential today. Theatrical, imaginative, diverse, melodic and unpredictable they had a sound and a look all of their own. Sitting alongside their contemporaries like Led Zeppelin and David Bowie, Queen set the standard for British rock in the 1970s and became one of the most thrilling, glamorous and downright rock 'n' roll bands of all time.

"Queen", "Queen II", "Sheer Heart Attack", "A Night At The Opera" and "A Day At The Races" have been specially remastered and each will be released as a standard CD as well as a deluxe two-disc set which will feature new bonus content. Each deluxe album will be released on iTunes featuring bonus tracks plus additional sleeve notes, unseen pictures and videos. The albums also set the scene for their band's forthcoming Stormtroopers In Stilettos Global exhibition that launches in London on February 25.

From the pure raw rock of "Queen" through to the majestic anthems on "A Day At The Races", the first five albums highlight the diverse talent, musical ambition and already global success of a band made up of some of the best songwriters, musicians and performers of all time.

The first 5 albums in my opinion were always their best, with the jewel in the crown being Sheer Heart Attack. What an album!
