"When I purchased this recording back in the 70's, I was teaching music appreciation to a bunch of 7th graders. I explained what it was they were about to experience and who the main players were in this musical masterpiece. They ate it up!!!
Now armed with "CD" and the age of the computer upon us, my young charges are just as excited to hear and experience the angst of man and his eventual triumph all portrayed in Jeff Wayne's music. They ask me over and over to "Please play the song with THUNDER CHILD!!!" They can hear the ship's churning through the water via Jeff Waynes magnificent arrangement. Some have even been brought to tears as "Thunder Child" slides into the watery depth after giving itself up valiantly. This is one of those "CDs" that is in that "GOTTA HAVE LIST" I am waiting for the the ultimate accompaniment to this masterpiece, thee animated version of Jeff Wayne's "WAR OF THE WORLDS"
