FREDDIE MERCURY's Childhood Stamp Album

His Album is housed in a dark blue binder and the stamps are mounted on black pages with a light quadrille pattern. The organization is not that of a conventional collector: it is clear that his goal was to create a work of Art rather than simply a stamp album page.

Lot Notes
Richard Thompson, the drummer in this rehearsal session is responsible for the preservation of what has been described as «...the most important pre-Queen recording». The recording was made on a small Fidelity two-track recorder which Thompson had owned for about ten years. Thompson made the recording so that he could learn the song before the group's concert at Ealing College. Thompson recalls that the song Green had a «...straightforward 4/4 in the middle, but we needed to learn the beginning and end of it. It had a weird beginning. Most of Freddie's songs were like that...». John S.Stuart's and Andy Davis' review of this recording describe Green as «...a melodic, medium-paced ballad, whose tone recalls that obscure Queen delight "Mad The Swine" and ...some of the more reflective material [Mercury] wrote toward the end of his life...». This rehearsal session was apparently an extended one, Thompson was exhausted and Mercury had practically lost his voice, the group also had to consider the other flatmates in Ferry Road and as a result Mercury can be heard singing in a hushed manner...Mike Bersin can be heard strumming along on an unplugged electric guitar. Only John Taylor's bass is amplified, while Richard Thompson keeps time by tapping on a practise pad... the recording ends when a flatmate interrupts complaining that it is one o'clock in the morning.

Freddie Mercury's Rolls Royce

The car's last public appearance was at the London premiere of We Will Rock You, having transported the Bulsara family to the Dominion Theatre. It has been in occasional use and has travelled less than 5,000 miles since Freddie's sister (the vendor) acquired it.

The car comes with the Kleenex Mansize Tissues box that Freddie kept in the car and is complete with the remaining (unused!!) tissues.

The Car is in the same visual condition as it was when Freddie used it, but a modern alarm system (Cobra) has been added, and the vehicle has been converted to run on unleaded petrol. The car is in good condition, as you would expect for a car of this age that has been looked after, but used. It has the odd small patch of rust, mainly around the wheel arches and on the rear corners of the chrome bumpers. It is in good running order, the engine bay and undersides are clean and the bodywork is polished. The interior is clean, no tears and the leather shows the patina of age.

An autograph picture postcard, signed, [frankmarked Truro, Cornwall, 3.8.'71], the 17 lines written by Freddie Mercury in blue ballpoint pen to Denise Craddock, [a friend who was cat-sitting for him], telling her: «We're staying in this cottage in Devoran and there are a few kitties rushing around outside - so it's not too bad..., adding ...I've got to rush cause there's only one pen and I've got it, and Brian's at my throat...», signing off «...All the Best Freddie - Excuse Haste»; the obverse printed with a polychrome illustration entitled «King Arthur's Cornwall»

Literature

Deaky Chronicles - www.deaky.com

Lot Notes
This postcard was sent to Freddie's address near London's Kensington Gardens, where Denise Craddock was looking after his cats, Tom and Gerry. Queen were doing a short tour of Cornwall at the time and rather than staying at Roger Taylor's family home in Truro, had rented a cottage close by in Devoran.
This 11-date tour of Cornwall, organised by Roger Taylor, was a significant one for the group. It was the first tour they embarked on as Queen. In an interview, Deacon recalled: «...It was good because...we got to know each other really well and it settled us as a group...».

Literature
HODKINSON, Mark Queen - The Early Years, London: Omnibus Press, 1995, pp.123-124.

Lot Notes
According to the vendor, a friend then flatmate of Freddie Mercury in London in 1969, this early set list was written in the summer of 1969 in perparation for concerts by Ibex. Freddie joined Ibex at that time, shortly after leaving Ealing College of Art and it is generally regarded as being his: «..first proper group...».

It's interesting to note that the second title on this list - «Lover» was written by Freddie and according to Queen biographer Mark Hodkinson: «...later evolved into 'Liar', a track on Queen's debut album». Hodkinson describes it as: «...a fascinating example of the heartfelt, elegiac, but ultimately vacuous prose which most British bands, famous or not, were dispensing at the time....» The song titles listed here also reflect Freddie's admiration for contemporary artists such as Cream, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and the King of Rock and Roll - Elvis Presley.
