Prolonged Gratification Award: A Day at the Races

This was one of the first albums I ever loved from beginning to end. My older brother brought it home in 1976. We listened to it over and over again -- and still do. A Night at the Opera is the most famous one, but from "Tie your Mother Down" to "Somebody to Love" (mp3) every song in "A Day at the Races" is a full-force Rock Opera on its own. Grandiose, but down and dirty Rock and Roll just the same.



No, we totally didn't know what "Queen" meant...
