TriviaEdit

  • At the time of its release, it was the most expensive album that had ever produced.
  • Mainly owing to the success of Bohemian Rhapsody, the album remained at #1 on the charts in the UK for nine weeks.
  • The album takes its name from the Marx Brothers film of the same name, which the band watched one night at the studio complex when recording. This aspect would be reused on the next album, A Day at the Races.
