Queen, Queen

£60.00

Few bands could get away with such self-aggrandising artwork for their debut album – but Queen’s mix of pomp, high camp and classic rock is what separated them from their contemporaries. Evidently aware of how to market themselves from the start, the album cover for Queen introduced the band with an image that they will always be remembered for: singer Freddie Mercury onstage, firmly in the spotlight, his trademark bottomless mic stand held triumphantly aloft. Taken by the band’s earliest photographer, Douglas Puddifoot, It’s an enduring impression of a star who will forever remain one of rock’s greatest frontmen.
