Raw Sessions Playback with Bob Harris and Matt Everitt

Central London: A fantastic night hosted by Matt Everett and Bob Harris listening to the Raw Sessions with the UK Music Press.

This very enjoyable evening was opened by Matt Everitt providing a background to the new release, the News Of The World promo clip was played before the packed room and then the speakers were cranked and a playback of the whole 'Raw Sessions' version of News Of The World was enjoyed by the packed out room. Once the final tinkling of Freddie's 'Melancholy Blues' faded out to great appluase, Matt then brought Bob Harris to the front, who discussed his history with the band and in particular his time spent with them in the studio and on the road in and around the time of the News Of World album. A Q&A then took place with Bob Harris and the Queen studio team who worked on the 40th Anniversary Boxset, Justin Shirley-Smith, Joshua J Macrae and Kris Fredriksson.
