About this album

A Day at the Races is a rock album by English band Queen released in December 1976.

A Day at the Races was the band’s first self-produced album after co-producing their first four albums with Roy Thomas Baker (for Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera) and John Anthony (Queen).

A Day at the Races was recorded at Sarm East, The Manor and Wessex Studios in England and engineered by Mike Stone. The title of the album followed suit with its predecessor A Night at the Opera in taking its name from a film by the Marx Brothers.

A Day at the Races peaked at number 1 in the UK, in Japan and in the Netherlands. It reached number 5 on the US Billboard album chart and was Queen’s fifth US album to ship Gold in the U.S… It subsequently reached Platinum status in sales in the U.S.

    I really like this album, but its inferiority to to the stunningly good 'A Night at the Opera' tarnishes the foundation of the dichotomy. 'Races' just isn't as good and can't be interpreted as a counterpart to the preceding masterpiece.

    Marked the slow decline of Queen after the high point of Night at the Opera. Still damn good though.

    I pity those so-called Queen fans who just care listening to the greatest hits albums. If only they knew what they're missing... [3]
