“Keep Yourself Alive” it’s the opening track on the band’s eponymous debut album Queen (1973). It was released as Queen’s first single along with “Son and Daughter” as the B-side. “Keep Yourself Alive” was largely ignored upon its release and failed to chart on either side of the Atlantic. It was also re-released as the non-album B-side of Lily of the Valley in 1974. In 2008, Rolling Stone rated the song 31st on its list of “The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time”.
“Liar” written by the lead singer Freddie Mercury in 1970, and originally titled “Lover”. The song featured on the band’s 1973 debut album Queen and it makes prominent use of the flanging effect, especially on the drums and cowbell. A heavily truncated version of “Liar” was released as a single – backed with “Doing All Right” – in the United States by Elektra Records and in Thailand by Royal Sound in February 1974. The music video consisted of the band miming to the song on a sound stage.
