1974 : Queen released 2nd album Queen II in the UK. Apparently in connection with black and white stylization of their live performances and also with songs like White Queen and March Of The Black Queen the album sides were black and white instead of A and B markings. Cover of the album was made by Mick Rock, who 30 years later released a Killer Queen book with a big collection of Queen photos from 70s. Motive of the cover photo inspired band while filming video for Bohemian Rhapsody and One Vision in 1985.
