First time I saw Queen was at Orpheum Theater Boston in 1975, 2nd row floor. Blew me away... Mahogany Rush was the only opening band. When Queen came on, the stage went black and fog everywhere. Opened with Now I'm Here... Sheer Heart Attack was the new album. So they played great songs from the fist three albums. A friend gave me Queen I. It was red with gold lettering on front and back. I still have it today, it's cracked from playing so much... I was hooked Queen fan since 1974.
