A Day At The Races (1976)

A Day at the Races is the fifth album by British rock group Queen, released in December 1976. It was the band’s first completely self-produced album, and the first not to feature producer Roy Thomas Baker. Recorded at Sarm East, The Manor and Wessex Studios in England, “A Day at the Races” was 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.

The album peaked at #1 in the UK, Japan and the Netherlands. It reached #5 on the US Billboard 200 and was Queen’s fifth album to ship gold in the US, and subsequently reached platinum status in the same country.
