Recorded at the historic Wembley concert in July 1985, these Live Aid songs are among the rare gems and unheard versions from the band’s rich catalogue. Alongside the show-stopping Live Aid performances of «Bohemian Rhapsody», «Radio Ga Ga», «Hammer To Fall» and «We Are The Champions», the album features other rare live tracks spanning Queen’s entire career, new versions of old favourites, and a choice selection of the band’s finest studio recordings. Among them are some of Queen’s biggest hits, including eleven all-time anthems that reached Number One around the world. The Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack, featuring all-original Queen recordings and vocals, is released on CD and digital formats on October 19th. Queen’s cinematic music has proved irresistible to filmmakers over the years, featuring in numerous big screen epics.

But Bohemian Rhapsody will be only the band’s second ever full original soundtrack album release, following on from the classic Flash Gordon in 1980. The 22 songs on the soundtrack were produced by Brian May and Roger Taylor, with engineering and co-production by long-time Queen studio collaborators Justin Shirley-Smith, Kris Fredriksson and Joshua J Macrae, and mastering by Adam Ayan and Bob Ludwig. The key task for the team behind the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack was sourcing the most suitable versions of the band’s songs, especially live performances, to fit the screenplay’s career-spanning narrative. Their brief was not merely to produce a greatest hits playlist package but a soundtrack album to stand on its own merits, underscoring key moments in the screenplay. Ensuring that listeners are in no doubt they are listening to a soundtrack album, Brian came up with the inspired idea that Queen should record their own arrangement of the famous 20th Century Fox Fanfare. Featuring May’s famous multi-layered guitars and Roger Taylor’s distinctive percussion, this revamped track provides a suitably flamboyant opening fanfare to both film and album. Unlike Queen’s soundtrack to Flash Gordon, no spoken dialogue from Bohemian Rhapsody is included on this new album. And while the film uses only parts from songs and performances, the soundtrack features the full-length versions of some of the band’s best-loved studio and live recordings.
The five tracks from Queen’s 21-minute performance at Live Aid on July 13th, 1985 have never been released in audio form before. The Live Aid audio is exclusive to this new soundtrack album. Other tracks on the soundtrack have been sourced from different decades and even different continents. Fat Bottomed Girls» comes from the Paris shows in 1979, part of the Jazz world tour and has never been released before. Now I’m Here» was recorded at the band’s 1975 Christmas Eve show at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. And the history-making duet between Freddie and Brian on «Love of My Life» comes from the Rock in Rio festival of January 1985 when 300,000 Brazilians sang along. For the studio recordings on the album, Queen had the luxury of being able to work with the Bob Ludwig remastered tracks from 2011, widely considered the best and most definitive versions.
The three remaining tracks on the soundtrack will be fresh to Queen fans, old and new. We Will Rock You» starts out as the studio version, then seamlessly blends into a live performance with audience participation. This has been created especially for the film. Don’t Stop Me Now» features Brian’s newly recorded guitar parts and is much closer to how the band plays the track live today. Doing All Right» was originally recorded by Smile, the predecessor band to Queen that featured Brian and Roger with vocalist Tim Staffell. When Tim later left, Roger and Brian would join forces with Freddie to form Queen. Freddie’s interpretation of the song featured on the first Queen album. To recreate the original Smile version, Brian and Roger reunited with Staffell at Abbey Road Studios to re-record «Doing All Right» for the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack. With record sales estimated at 300 million and counting, Queen remains evergreen rock favourites whose glorious catalogue of songs continues to thrill fans of all ages across the globe. Despite the loss of Freddie in 1991, their following has continued to grow over the decades, boosted by a new wave of fans who first discovered the band’s music through their hugely successful stage show We Will Rock You or via hit TV shows like Glee, American Idol and The X-Factor. The Bohemian Rhapsody film and its original soundtrack album are certain to introduce Queen to a new generation of listeners and remind existing fans just how magnificent the band was in its prime. Queen remain spectacular performers today, both live and in the studio, their songs having comfortably stood the test of time. After almost 50 years together, Queen continues to be one of the most exciting and beloved bands in rock history.
