Finally the BBC Sessions are published in the latest collection Queen On Air!
I remember I hesitated for a few seconds before buying the Queen at the Beeb album, not being sure if it was a fake or what else... and, in fact, that was a bootleg (but I realized it a few years later... *-*)
Internet was not handy here in 1989 and the only way to get to know more about my favorite band was to browse any available musical revue or listen to any dedicated radio broadcast. With tons patience and researches, I discovered that the performances in there were taken from the BBC Sessions!
That was my first live album and I was really excited while listening to those new versions of the songs: each of them had a freshness and a spontaneity I had not experienced before.
Between February 1973 and October 1977 Queen recorded six show for the English National Radio, My Fairy King belongs to the first session, which took place on February 5th, 1973.
