    Flash Gordon

    Queen are proud to announce the re-release of their entire studio album catalog on remastered long playing heavyweight vinyl. The album packaging will include every detail of the original releases in their original 12 format. Bonus posters, extra pictures and all the unique content of the original albums will be faithfully reproduced. The next 5 albums include the very first album, Queen, along with News Of The World, Flash Gordon, A Kind of Magic and Innuendo, with successive releases coming approximately every six months.


    Flash Gordon is the motion picture soundtrack for the 1980 Dino DeLaurentis film, released just a few months after one of Queen's most commercially successful albums, The Game. The synthesizer-heavy release is comprised mostly of short instrumentals with dialogue from the movie inserted throughout. Flash Gordon contains plenty of first-rate compositions including the soundtrack's anthemic opener Flash's Theme and the underrated rocker The Hero, which closes out the album.

    1. Flash's Theme
    2. In The Space Capsule (The Love Theme)
    3. Ming's Theme (In The Court Of Ming The Merciless)
    4. The Ring (Hypnotic Seduction Of Dale)

    Flash Gordon

    While writing and recording The Game, Queen were asked by renowned movie director Dino DeLaurentis to provide the soundtrack for his upcoming sci-fi epic Flash Gordon. The band accepted and promptly began working on both albums simultaneously. Although at first many fans criticized Flash Gordon since it was issued as an official Queen release rather than a motion picture soundtrack, it has proven to be one of rock's better motion picture soundtracks over the years. The majority of the music is instrumental, with dialogue from the movie in place of Freddie Mercury's singing (only two tracks contain lyrics), but the songwriting is still unmistakably Queen. Highlights abound, such as Football Fight, Vultan's Theme (Attack of the Hawkmen), The Wedding March, and the heavy metal roar of Battle Theme. But it was the two more conventional songs that were the album's two best tracks -- the anthemic U.K. Top Ten hit Flash's Theme and the woefully underrated rocker The Hero. With Queen involved, Flash Gordon is certainly not your average, predictable soundtrack.

    A Kind Of Magic

    Primarily functioning as the musical backdrop for the movie Highlander, Queen's 1986 release A Kind of Magic differs from their other motion picture soundtrack, 1980's Flash Gordon in that it features all fully realized songs and doesn't contain a single instrumental. Songs like the epic title track, Friends Will Be Friends and Who Wants To Live Forever helped Queen once again attain rock prominence around the world.

    2. A Kind of Magic
    3. One Year of Love
    4. Pain Is So Close to Pleasure

    Innuendo

    Queen are proud to announce the re-release of their entire studio album catalog on remastered long playing heavyweight vinyl. The album packaging will include every detail of the original releases in their original 12 format. Bonus posters, extra pictures and all the unique content of the original albums will be faithfully reproduced. The next 5 albums include the very first album, Queen, along with News Of The World, Flash Gordon, A Kind of Magic and Innuendo, with successive releases coming approximately every six months.


    1991's Innuendo would be Queen's last album with founding member Freddie Mercury as he passed away several months after its release. A fitting end to one of rock's most successful original line-ups, Innuendo brilliantly balances blatant autobiographical songs like These Are The Days of Our Lives and The Show Must Go On with humorous tracks Delilah and I'm Going Slightly Mad and the band's signature pop fare I Can't Live With You and Don't Try So Hard.

    1. Innuendo
    2. I'm Going Slightly Mad
    3. Headlong
    4. I Can't Live With You

    Queen

The next 5 albums include the very first album, Queen, along with News Of The World, Flash Gordon, A Kind of Magic and Innuendo, with successive releases coming approximately every six months.


    Queen's eponymous 1973 debut features all of the band's signature elements from Freddy Mercury's operatic harmonies to Brian May's orchestral guitar work to their theatric and grandiose hard rock. The album and its sound was as unique as it was promising and it provides a rough blue print to what would coalesce into greatness on their subsequent releases.

    News Of The World

    Queen are proud to announce the re-release of their entire studio album catalog on remastered long playing heavyweight vinyl. The album packaging will include every detail of the original releases in their original 12 format. Bonus posters, extra pictures and all the unique content of the original albums will be faithfully reproduced. The next 5 albums include the very first album, Queen, along with News Of The World, Flash Gordon, A Kind of Magic and Innuendo, with successive releases coming approximately every six months.


    Queen's 1977 release News Of The World solidified the band's position as '70s rock royalty while expanding upon their artistic vision with an eclectic collection of songs. Although the album is famous for its anthemic We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions opening medley, it also features the Roger Taylor-sung Sheer Heart Attack which is as close as Queen ever came to punk as well as the provocatively sensual Get Down, Make Love.

    Little Death Shaker

    Stripped of all noise influences and focusing on straight-up songs, Little Death Shaker is a record evocative of late nights and dusty parking lots, long drives and boozy hookups. This is the work of a dude who's spent his youth and young manhood on tour and it comes through in both the music and the lyrics. Where Castanets' lyrics gave us Ray Carver-ian fragments and it's-what-you-leave-out-that-counts minimalism, here we see Raposa back from the battleground with stories to tell.



    This is the most lyric-heavy Raposa's been and it's also the most playful and humorous, and you get the feeling some of these songs would be the ones that would go down best near 2am at some weird sports bar dive in southeast Alabama/Iowa/Mississippi. (We can just see some big biker dude/fallen NASCAR star/Gary Busey lookalike sitting back-to-bar, Bud in hand, having a good-natured laugh over the punchline from Some of My Friends or the WTF premise of the Dan Reeder penned You'll Never Surf Again.)



    The record begins with fighting spirit. Allegiance comes on with a punch of electric guitar and Raposa singing I woke up feeling/bold as shit. It's his rowdiest and most confident song to date, a real knockabout that'll take you by surprise if you're used to Castanets. Up next the title track verges on Queen (Flash Gordon soundtrack?) and Some of My Friends is a barnburner with the ghosts old Sun Studios players holding court.



    Highlights are many. The dark-as-Skoal interstate roller Whippoorwill, the slowly ramping Some Kind of Fool, which rolls easy and pretty with backup vocals from Matthew Houck of Phosphorescent before building to a shitkicking rock 'n' roll peak where we find Raposa delivering some of his best and most racy lyrics, singing the very un-indie-rock, I could spend this good money wherever I care to/taste all the honies that I choose /lay myself down beside anyone's flower/all alive in the morning with the dew. It's a song about libertine freedom and heartbreak ignored and taking the bull by the horns and being, well, kind of a bastard.



    More highlights: Castanets collaborator Talia Gordon taking main vocals on You're Not Standing Like You Used To (Kate Wolf); the after-afterhours minor chord jam Stateline, Little Death Shaker's most ruckus track of all, a late-night spent trapped in the stripclub/rig cab/country bar/tour van/your own damn head. At 10 minutes it's a tale of drugs and wayward love, a real red-lit kind of aloneness, backed by a legit live crawl, with high and ghostly organ and distorted vocals crackling like a bad CB connection.



    With Meridian, Raposa and Houck bring back the vibe of Some Kind of Fool and take it on a humid trip through the deepest South, gators in the water, snakes in the sand, a stormhead looming over the sun-dappled river. When Raposa sings oh honey here comes the storm you can just FEEL the weather breaking.



    One of this record's real charms is you can close your eyes and see these 13 tracks played live; you can see the drummer leaning over his kit with his brushes (and sunglasses on?), the backup singers standing around the mic, beers in hand, eyes closed, swaying side to side, the lights crisscrossing the stage. Meridian is no different. You can see this band. You can see these people playing together, and in a world of records that bands can't duplicate live, it's crazy-refreshing!



    The album's closer, Allegiance 2, brings backlongtime Castanets collaborator Bridgit Jacobsen (nÉe Decook) for a hushed and barely-there apology. Oh lord be kind to me/after all these devils I have kissed. As a prayer, a shrug, and an exhausted offering, it's a fitting way to end an album so concerned with sin and vice. It's also a fitting end-introduction to this new band. So meet Raymond Byron and the White Freighters and their record Little Death Shaker. Here's to the new!
