When their eleventh studio album The Works - produced by Queen and Mack - was released in the UK on February 27th 1984, fans and critics alike hailed it as Queen return to their rock roots and to the traditional Queen sound absent on the previous album. Record Mirror described it as ‘Another jewel in the crown’.
For the first time ever the band started the new recordings in Los Angeles in August 1983 and finished at Musicland studios in Germany early the following year. The album cover was conceived by Queen and features an image from a photographic session with legendary Hollywood photographer, the late George Hurrell, who had previously photographed Marilyn Monroe and many other Hollywood greats.
