Bring Back That Leroy Brown

Music by Freddie Mercury

Originally Performed by Queen

"Bring Back That Leroy Brown" was written by Freddie Mercury and features him playing grand piano and jangle piano, as well as multiple vocal overdubs. May played a short section on ukulele-banjo and Deacon played a line on the double bass. DRUM! Magazine commends Taylor's drum work, calling it a good example of his versatility. "It really shows off Taylorís versatility. He nails dozens of kicks throughout this fast and tricky song and proves that he couldíve been a big band drummer or ably fit into any theatrical pit band if Queen hadnít worked out so well for him. Honky-tonk piano, upright bass, ukulele-banjo, and a smokiní drummer all add up to a rollicking good time." The song's title alludes to the then-recent hit "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" by American singer-songwriter Jim Croce who had died in a plane crash the previous year. The song was played live in an arrangement that shortened the song and was, except for the very end and one other line, purely instrumental. May's ukulele-banjo was brought onstage especially for this song. An A Capella version was released as part of the 2011 Remaster of the album.
