The Fairy Feller’s Master Stroke, Queen II. 1974

Written about a painting done by Richard Dadd, with accompanying poem. It’s just so silly and I love all the mythology. Freddie’s Mythological and fairy tale songs are always so beautiful. Especially his ones about Rhye.

The Deacy Amp is an electric guitar amplifier created in 1972 by Queen’s bass guitarist John Deacon. Using an amplifier circuit board found in a skip, it was fitted into a speaker cabinet and powered by a 9-volt battery. The amplifier had no volume or tone controls for most of its history and was never broken or repaired. It was used along with Brian May’s Red Special electric guitar and treble-booster to produce sounds reminiscent of various orchestral instruments, such as violin, cello, trombone, clarinet, or even vocals, starting from the songs “Procession” and “The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke” from the 1974 album ‘’Queen II’’.[2]

Today marks the anniversary of a killer album. I love love love march of the black queen, white queen (as it began), ogre battle and the fairy fellers masters stroke.
