Now I'm Here

Words and music by Brian May

Recording information by Philipp

Recorded at Trident(?) studios in 1974.

The recording session started with the recording of drums and bass. Then Brian did the guitar stuff:

In the solo there is a piano recorded,which plays some rock'n'roll chords (Freddie). After the solo an organ plays some overdubs (played by Brian or Freddie).

The backing vocals were done in two tracks.

The lead vocals (Freddie) are in the intro and in the interlude done with delay (perhaps a tap tempo delay). The delay time is c.1800 ms, which is about two bars. The delay repeats are sometimes panned in the left, sometimes panned into the right channel.

Tempo:132 bpm
