Doin' Alright (4:11)

Cover of 1975-11-26: Free Trade Hall, Manchester, UK: Evening Show

From 1975-11-26: Free Trade Hall, Manchester, UK: Evening Show and 1 other release

“Doing All Right” was written by Brian May and Tim Staffell while in the pre-Queen band, Smile. The song changes many times throughout, from light pop music to acoustic guitars and even contains a section that could only be referred to as heavy metal. This is one of the few Queen songs to feature Brian May on the piano. He also played his old Hairfred acoustic guitar on this track and on later tracks such as “White Queen (As It Began)” and “Jealousy”. The band played this song as early as 1970, and it was notable as the band’s first song Freddie Mercury played live on the piano for. Staffell sang it when it was a Smile song, and Mercury tried to sing in the same manner when it became a Queen song.

Freddie Mercury - vocals
Brian May - acoustic & electric guitars, piano, backing vocals
John Deacon - bass guitar
Roger Taylor - drums, backing vocals; lead vocals (BBC version).
