She said she went because of her parents. Really? Yeah, she did want to have anything to do with it.

She might get in before America. Is it a girl yet, right? Is it a gold watch now if you've been there?

"The answer to me is attributed questions in the bar was where he was born all it's going to talk about each arm starting from first of the first song that we have on our list is Queen. The Queen album, queen, which played their first gig in July 1970 has been playing the club and called circuit in Rome London for almost ten years. When they received an opportunity to test out the new recording facilities at D lane studios, they're put together a Polish general of Paris songs, keep yourself alive to not calm down. Great king rat Jesus, and liar. The group sent their demo to various circuit levels were only received at one offer. A little bit from cars used records, which they declined as according to their friend, contested and feared they would always play the second fiddle to genesis to those other bands. Producers drawn Antony and Roy Thomas baker visited delaying Lee while the band were recording and was impressed by what they saw. They were committed that queen to very enormous Sheffield who owned charted the seniors, the shuffle brothers were in for queen they record at during this video downtime, but we're giving free use of everything after the playing artists had left, including the latest technologies and production team trying to also agree to oversee the group's main intimate recording and publishing interests. While they saw the record deal one day while waiting at the end of the city of mercury was asked to record vocals from our produce Robin Geoffrey cable, who was working on verge wood, I can hear music and going back. Mercury and listen May and Taylor on the charts which was released on a single order in the name Larry lyrics and parody of Gary glitter. Moving along to the second album, we have clean too. The album. Blood Zeppelin in the hue are probably in Queen see you somewhere because they were among favorite groups, but what we were trying to do differently from the other groups is the sort of later town the who had open Cort guitar sound, but our sun is more based on over driven guitar sound. I also wanted to build up the textures behind the main building lines. We were trying to sit next to a new limit for our second album on our list as queen tea. There's a second city of queen. It was released on March 1974 by EMR records. On the UK led records in the U.S. there was a research chart in studios and learning at one sinews in London and August 1973 to almost baker.

Finish of the conventional sides, a and B records finding photos of the band dressed in black and either side, but the records label face. They saw on our list sheer heart attack is the third seal on my Queen. Release on November 8th, 13, 24 in my records in the United Kingdom, electoral records in the United States.

After the release of Queen to the group of bars on the commercial tour, with Martha who will cover in the middle of the tour, where everybody became severely ill, forcing the entire tour to early.

"But when i think about could it have been better with a different producer. I'm gonna say would have In nineteen eighty else. Cooper kind of started what was known as the blackout era and Put out flush the fashion produced by roy. Thomas baker who was kinda hot on the heels of working with queen the cars and kinda. Had you know this kind of thin pop ish. You know style of doing albums and he definitely brought that to this one. And i think it was an intentional decision for alice to pick him as the producer of this because he wanted to compete with punk new wave which yes. That was the ethos of that of those genres was to basically strip everything down to nothing. And i do love songs on this record. Don't get me wrong. I think pain and clones like two of the best songs ever did sure. Rim facts is an awesome song Even like model citizen yes. Aspirin damages goofiest fuck. But i love it but it's a it's a great record so don't get me wrong about that. This is an album where i wish bob. Azran was still on board and would have brought his production value to this album because he knew how to beef up guitars. And and make cordell passages more powerful and and there's enough dramatic stuff on here on this album too especially with. Could you imagine bob. As producing pain sounded really cool. And i i just think it's It's one of those. Things weren't hindsight. I'd like to hear what would have done with it for the time it came out. It's it's perfect for what it is. Because he was trying to do that. Whole new wave. Punkish thing but to me. I'd love to hear bob azran. Remix this record himself and kind of beef up everything and do a modern version of it. That's pretty interesting. Because i think the blackout era around here amongst us is kind of revered. We like those albums from that weird period of alice cooper's career and when we originally talked about doing this i actually pick ten and didn't realize we're picking five and i did have alice cooper on there and but instead of that one i went with special forces but same thing i wanted to come back and do special forces because i kind of like flush the fashion the way it is. You know i like that. That's what he was going for. And i think they were able to achieve it because clones is. You know that's a weird album but it's not by far it's not the worst album of the blackout era. And i think i think special forces is one of the worst things alice cooper. Ever come out with so. I think that's the one bob israel comes back and fixes but i don't necessarily disagree with yours either because i think in that blackout era as we seen because i think the last thing bob done with them was what. Welcome to my nightmare. No wa- was it lace and whiskey whiskey right..

"All right so this is from a day at the races now. This record went platinum which is pretty good but You know a night at the opera went triple platinum and the next album after this. This came out december tenth. Seventy six the next album after this Went four times. Platinum of course had the the big hits We are the champions. We will rock you But anyway this is definitely a situation where i remember at the time that i was one of the big narratives about this album. Possibly not being as well received as a night at the opera is no roy. Thomas baker. so roy. Thomas baker had been there producer from the first album. All the way up through queen to sheer heart attack at night at the opera. He's known as big flamboyant guy Loves his wind loves his cars You know he's as big figure as the queen guys. Are you know or certainly say. Say a freddie mercury so i could see those two guys have evolved together right but anyways you know and he's also known as a big experimental no-expenses-spared like you know. Things cost a lot of money when roy thomas baker was producing But and that. And that's why that's why queen got to where they were. I think roy. Thomas baker could really be credited. A lot with With a lot of the vocal experimentation that resulted in that big queen sound but on this record The idea is that no. We're going to go it alone. we're going to self produce. You wonder if that would have had a more to do with With egos and control more than thinking roy. Thomas baker wasn't bringing anything to the table but again We do have a we do have a A sort of silent partner secret weapon in the likes of mike stone now mike stone sadly no longer with us but he went on to be a pretty big producer himself with the likes of journey but I'm just pulling up my vinyl copy here of Of a day at the races. And we've got to. Where did we have that credit. management recorded in england. John deacon okay. Yeah that's right so on day at the races. I remember seeing this so not on the back cover the back cover all just says all titles composed arranged and performed exclusively by queen and then even on the gate fold. There's nothing about a production credit. And i have to go to the actual a record label itself where it says produced by queen engineered by mike stone. Okay Now when you get to news of the world Right on the back cover. It says produced by queen assisted by mike stone. So that's kind of cool and we know news of the world is a great sounding record and it was like a say a super successful record as well but for a number of reasons a day at the races. You know being the black version of the white album with the same album cover art and the same you know configuration design and even even kind of the same You know a similar mix for songs rican matchup songs from the first one to the second one in and you could arguably call them week. T. versions of those same songs on you know from night at the opera two a day at the races. There were a lot of complaints about this record That maybe maybe it came out too fast. Maybe it's a little bit too rough. And i definitely remember people saying you know. Part of the problem is they're self producing. They're they're not making this with roy. Thomas baker you know looking for some reason why they were. People were vaguely unsatisfied with it. Granted it did have your tie your mother down and somebody love you. Know some of the big huge queen songs of all time But there you go. That certainly is one of these that fits in this idea of you know. The results were not as good when we went to sell production.

"I didn't tour till two thousand six as solo on my own so you know it was just one of those things that it allowed and as fleetwood mac sort of went down that road and of course as i said i took leave of lead. Make nine hundred ninety seven. Because i didn't want to do that tour I made out of the cradle. Which is one of my better albums. And then eventually got pulled back into fleetwood mac and did make another solo album till two thousand six so there has been a problem in terms of ivins. Maybe not a problem but a challenge in terms of In those things together the time commitment. And we're all touring right. Yeah so you know. If you're gonna be in fleetwood mac. You've got to do everything that fleetwood mac needs to be done and operation. It is and if that means that you've got to sort of minimize the logistics of your solo work. Then that's okay because in a way it's going to be smaller scale anyway just because of what it is right and that's that's a good thing for me you know. Well maybe it did force you to at least you know. Be leaner and how your approach. Well i mean it kept me learning. I know that you know. And at some point people are up there doing their hits and And they forget how to even be creative. You know i definitely hear that. Yeah i did that luxury as sort of like Marginal comic you really gotta show up with the new our every year. That's the comedies. As they say it's hard. Yeah teas but i wanna make sure that you know we do you know. Pay some attention to all the soa records especially you know once you got through. I know that first one was back in the nineties but it seemed like the the shift from the first couple of soa records. Which were so i mean they were they were the production is very of its time and and there was a i. Think an attempt to make something danceable. Am i wrong. Well not that my first solo album was i think. I'm thinking to say nineteen eighty-one it was law and order that was not really so danceable but the reason that i even started making so albums because the band had gotten very drawn into the whole tusk idea. You're a little bit wary of of doing it in the beginning but they got completely drawn into it. Yeah by the time we got done bar or they loved it. They loved it but when it did not sell close to sixty million copies i think it probably sold for five emphasis double album. So still mic. Came to me one day and he said well. We're not going to do that again. Meaning you can't go to your house and work on tracks by yourself and bring them in. Have us play over them. Which is what. I did so he sort of blaming you. He's not blaming me. He's just saying you know back to that works. That was that was your art album. We wanna do something a little broader now. And i said okay but i realized at that point that i wasn't going to kick be able to continue to sort of aspire to be the artist right unless i started making solo albums so That first one wasn't really so dancy. The second one was called go insane which was a couple years later and that was a little bit more. The the linn drum machine had just come in and i had a synthesizer presence. Yeah there's i had this eight bit fairlight which was very new and also working with different people whereas on that i might work with richard dash it who is one of the co producers fleetwood maga- toe I put on this. I worked with a young guy named gordon ford isis. In engineer in roy. Thomas baker of all people one or two. He called himself executive producer on the newest one on ongoing signs. The second says in one thousand nine hundred eighty three and he he you know he that could mean anything. Executive producer could mean. You never see him but he was there every day. Yeah and i think. His sensibilities work their way into a that album and and gordon the engineer they were all. There are both english so they were drawing from the sensibilities of the stuff that was coming over from england. new wavy. Yeah get a kind of a more dancey kind of civility on that record right no doubt about it. So i'm trying to get the timeline. The last time we talked you're in you're just been cut loose fleetwood mac in a fairly dramatic way. What was that about. How does that happen. Well ironically. It sort of began with a. I mean the tone for it. Not the not anything. There was no real substantive reason for for it happening but the tone actually began with the solo album that is is about to be released brand new one which has been waiting to come out for three years now at least more more actually and when christine and i were done touring As a duet which we did you know after we'd made that album yup few years ago What i asked of the band because they were planning a fleetwood mac tour pretty much right after that after in two thousand seventeen. Yes yeah yeah yeah maybe eighteen. Yeah and i i said was can i want you know i've we did this. Great project with christine. I have this other album. That i'm really proud of. It's a pop album. And i would love to if you give me an extra three months to put it out and do some american dates before fleetwood back goes out and.

I like music so we have a schedule that we more or less. Try to keep to throughout the course of each year in our time line. I'm sure y'all know you know we try to go in chronological order but we do occasionally very small things change. But we're still in the the year of nineteen ninety-five is and so you know. We keep a schedule. And that includes the main feed episodes and the patriots bonus episodes and so we had an album. Well what we had set for tonight was a patriae on request episode And i've been trying to do those in now from from here on out. I'm going to do them in chronological order of. They're not chronological but while i'm stoned. We're doing them in the order that they were submitted from the listeners. So before we kind of just did willy nilly pink shirt. We just picked them. You know whatever. But i'm gonna put them in order because i think that's only fair so that if someone sends one in they don't have to wait seventeen weeks until we get to there until we get to the so. We're going to do in order. But i wasn't in the mood to listen to that tonight. I just wasn't And so occasionally that's going to happen. We're obviously going to do it. We'll do it next ramp but tonight wasn't the night and so as per some of our recent discussions on this show i thought. Why don't we listen to one of those all time. Great amazing queen albums okay. You know we think that jerry. I i think the economy of time here is lost. How long is this album. Which is the length of an album. How long is the question. Jerry isn't how long is the album.

What Difference Does It Make
"roy. thomas baker" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"I do like isn't i love this song. It's magic magical. I mean it's so poppy so amazing. Just this was the cars moved onto. They had a different producer for for this album. This was the album heartbeat city originally. It was roy. Thomas baker rock producer. Did some great stuff but they moved to robert mutt lang of def leppard and shania twain and knows how to write. Pop hits or produce. Those saw that you know this this war this great sound and the cars took huge advantage of that. There were like four. They had from heartbeat city. Of course there was As you might think when up to number seven hello again was number twenty. And they're big hits drive. Hit number three. Get out and do you remember the video for the song. Yeah i saw the video where there. He's like jesus since in there. And there's all these freaks that look like they're straight out of the eighty s just trying to touch. They're all dressed up in. I don't know some are costumes. But it's all you could look at this video and just look at these extras and think. Oh my god. This is again super eighties so good and it should be you know where it was. Shot the video. The echoes a party scene but funding eleven but his genome reshot was shot. It was shot at the hill estate for hotel. The hilton estate families. Home the family's home. Oh the actual hilton so so like a baby. Paris hilton was there in. It's fair and eighty four born yet. She may have been She is not in it. So yeah was it. Conrad conrad hilton. That was the dad. Yeah and do you know who directed this video. I'll me put can poke to broke. And we know tim pope from well. We know tim pope because he directed less videos in the eighties but mostly because he directed thirty seven videos for the cure. Yes which is a significant. I mentioned robert lang robert mutt lang. Who's associated really with def leppard. He almost didn't produce hysteria because he had a commitment to the car. So he told def leppard they couldn't work on hysteria. But due to delays in the album's recording laying was eventually able to produce it and they lived happily ever after lucky for everyone including us. If you like the elvis. Gary which i do. Yes that's crazy the thing like. Oh my god. That's that might not. It might have been a completely different story for developer. Also i should say because i think in the last pop culture episode you kind of pooh poohing on one thousand nine hundred four. There was the the critic robert chris. Cow i'm sure you're familiar with them. Eight no that The glossy approached. The cars invented has made this the best year for pure pop and damn near twenty years. And it's only fair that they should return so confidently to form so robert crisco agrees in nineteen eighty-four is the greatest year ever for music. L. is speaking specifically about pop music and not necessary. The alternative genre alternative was good to go to that. Don't give me started that we already get into. Yeah so the cars. Magic was magical yet. So let's see the magic. Is this on. The k rock list of this song is not on the list. I am sorry..
