In My Defence (3:55)

Cover of The Great Pretender

From The Great Pretender and 10 other releases

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in October 1985, while Queen were working on A Kind Of Magic. Freddie was initially hesitant to work on two separate projects simultaneously, and was keen on working with Brian, Roger, and John instead of with session musicians. Musical producer Dave Clark agreed that if Freddie was displeased with the results, he would finance sessions to re-record the song with Queen. Needless to say, Freddie was happy with the results, and, sadly, Queen versions of the song were never recorded.

Freddie Mercury - lead and backing vocals
Mike Moran - keyboards
Paul Vincent - guitars
Graham Jarvis - drums
Andy Pask - bass guitar
Peter Banks - synthesizers
