Quote related to 'Seven Seas Of Rhye' from 'Queen II'

We knew what we wanted, it was just a question of getting it. On the second single, Seven Seas Of Rhye, everything deliberately happens in the first 10 seconds – guitars, harmonies, vocals – and it worked. Radio picked up on it. But we went into the rest of Queen II thinking we should throw the kitchen sink at it. We were trying to push everything to its limit, like Freddie's song, The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, which could only have been a studio creation.
