'A TRUE SHOWMAN AND EXTRAORDINARY VOCAL TALENT',
This review is from: Freddie Mercury Album (Audio CD)
'Freddie Mercury' was of course the lead-singer for the fabulous group 'Queen' that
set the 'Charts' alight for many years through much of the 70's and 80's.
'Freddie Mercury' did also however record much in the way of solo material from the
mid 80's up to his sad passing 'November 24th 1991 aged just 45.
His great vocal ability reached out to music fans of all-ages world-wide.
I remember his very public disappointment when 'Opera' singer 'Montserrai Caball'e'
didn't come over to the U.K to promote their brilliant effort 'Barcelona' 'Freddie believed
had she done so, the song would have topped the Chart, well, it really was an outstanding
song for sure, it only managed to reach number '8' in the U.K (It did deserve a better fate
'Freddie' though pursuing his solo ambitions did of course continue to record and perform
On this album it does include several solo successes including - 'The Great Pretender'
(Chart '4' 1987' also charted again after his death) also 'In My Defence' (Chart '8' 1992)
'Barcelona' made a second chart entry after his passing reaching number '2' in 1992.-
'Living on my Own' (Charted at a low number '50' in 1985, re-entering the Chart, again after
his passing reaching the number '1' slot in 1993.
Among the other Hits on-board - 'Time' (Chart '32' 1986) and 'I Was Born To Love You'
(Chart '11' 1985) - There are four other very good tracks on-board that didn't independently
This, a great album that portrays the true talent of this legendary artist, surely a consideration
for any collector...........as I do with all my music reviews, I play the album at the time of writing
