Released on this day in 1978, Jazz is the seventh studio album by Queen. Produced by Roy Thomas Baker, the album featured the singles "Bicycle Race / Fat Bottomed Girls," "Don't Stop Me Now," "Mustapha," and "Jealousy" propelling it to number two in the UK and number 6 in the US. The UK version of the album came with a poster inside featuring 65 naked female models on bikes at Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium. It was taken during the filming of the video for “Bicycle Race.” The American release did not include the poster, but did include an order form for it. The album has sold over five million copies worldwide.
