Time Waits For No One ‘was originally recorded for the soundtrack of the 1986 West End musical Time, made by musician Dave Clark. The version that has now been released is another voice recording recorded by Queen’s front man. The background track of 1986 has been replaced by a solo piano accompaniment.
Clark, founder of the English pop group The Dave Clark Five, indicates that he was looking for the Mercury vocal for years. “The version studied on Abbey Road was just Freddie with a piano. It was magic and it gave me goosebumps,” says Clark. “The produced version ended with 48 vocal tracks. It took me years to track down the original master tape from only Freddie’s vocal recording.”
