This is one of the early rock and roll "operas" written by Wakeman and is a classic. Recorded in London, as was his "Journey to the Center of the Earth", the album mixes both vocals with extensive instrumental tracks. The recording on the original vinyl seemed a bit fuzzy in parts, which always brought to mind the question of whether it was intentional, or just an engineering glitch that escaped notice. Well worth the time to listen to and enjoy.

Wakeman's Best Solo LP
ZarMan | 07/19/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After recently purchasing an Audio-Technica USB Turntable and a Logitech 2.1 speaker system for my computer I began gathering up some of my old friends from the 70's.

First, I need to explain to you younger folk what I am talking about. These "old friends" are black vinyl, with a hole in the middle, normally having a round paper label attached to said middle. We called them records, or albums, or simply LP's.

Secondly, I need to admit that I've never listened to any other Wakeman solo albums or CDs except for Journey to the Center of the Earth. I've also never listened to Myths & Legends of King Arthur & The Knights of the Round Table except on vinyl, although I do own over 250 CD's, this is not one of the titles that I own.

Thirdly, I am no audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, BUT, I know what I like, you can debate facts and fiction with me, and whether or not it is popular or not makes no never mind to me. I stick to my guns.

OK, all else aside here is my review. I listened to this LP ALOT in 75 & 76 and loved it. After listening to YES Fragile on my new set up (and loving it) I pulled out this LP and began to listen to it. Was it as good as I remember it being some 30+ years ago? absolutely not!! It was even better than I remembered!!! I love the composition, the music, and the sound ROCKS. I love the orchestration combined with the progressive rock sound (perhaps that's why I think Metallica's S&M is the best Album they have released thus far ... I own it on CD and vinyl and in my lowly opinion vinyl far outshines the CD version). Face it, you either like symphonic progressive rock or you don't. If you like The Who's Tommy (not the Movie Soundtrack), Metallica's S&M, you may like this one. As for me, I love it.
