Quote related to 'Ogre Battle' from 'Queen II'

Yes, there's a lto of backwards stuff there. We were like boys let loose in a room full of toys. And with the old analog machines, you could easily turn the tape over. Waht I would do sometimes is say to Roy [Thomas Baker, Queen's first producer],"Just give me that tape backwards on cassette, and I'll go home and learn it backwards. I would learn it backwards and play on it the next day. Sometimes the mistakes came out better than the actual things you'd planned. That's one of the things you lose in digital. And you can't do the stuff where you'd lean on the reels and it would go eeeooouuuggghhhh.
