Freddie Mercury Album

Recorded at Townhouse and Mountain Studios Produced By Freddie Mercury, Mike Moran and David Richards. Vocals by Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe John Deacon : Bass Guitar on ‘How Can I Go On’. Mike Moran : All Keyboards Released in USA, in 1992 Recommended Songs : Barcelona, Ensueno, Guide Me Home, How Can I Go On Review The classical / operatic venture with Montserrat Caballe lead to an excellent album which showed how good a voice Freddie had. The album reached number 6 in the classical charts in 1988 and Freddie and Montserrat appeared at an open air festical in Spain to sing the title song on the album, Barcelona. The olympics held in Barcelona in 1992, lead to the song being used then also ; in fact when the single was rereleased it got to #2 in the charts, compared to #8 in 1988 in its initial singles release. There are some excellent tracks on the album, and (apart from those who only like the Heavy Rock element of Queen) most will enjoy listening to this. Review Rating : 9 October 8th, singing with Montserrat in Spain, was the very last time Freddie Mercury performed on stage.
