Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer, songwriter, record producer and lead vocalist of the rock band Queen. Shortly before the release of Queen's self-titled first album, Mercury designed the band's logo, known as the "Queen crest". The logo combines the zodiac signs of the four band members: two lions for Deacon and Taylor (sign Leo), a crab for May (Cancer), and two fairies for Mercury (Virgo). The lions embrace a stylised. His first solo effort goes back to 1972 under the pseudonym Larry Lurex, when Trident Studios' house engineer Robin Geoffrey Cable was working in a musical project, at the time when Queen were recording their debut album; Cable enlisted Mercury to perform lead vocals on the songs "I Can Hear Music" and "Goin' Back", both were released together as a single in 1973.

Original release 1967 - WRC edition 1969.

"An H.M.V. recording, released exclusively in Australia by World Record Club."

Manufactured for Australian release, although the vinyl label says "Made In India". The label design is subtly different to the usual WRC green 'strobe' label (WRC did not issue a mono version), and the cardboard used for the cover is thicker and coarser than that used for other WRC sleeves of the period. The addresses on the back of the sleeve are out of date - it seems clear that this is an Indian pressing made to order for WRC distribution in Australia: by the time it arrived, the addresses were no longer current.
