Rick Wakeman – Out There Tour – 2003

Rick Wakeman – Spa Pavilion Felixstowe – 21 April 2003 We arrived with plenty of time at what used to be my local venue. The first thing that struck me as I walked in were the blue lights lighting up the stage. They were a good colour and they were nicely positioned with some atmospheric […]

Rick Wakeman and Mario Fasciano – Stella Bianco

Stella Bianco(White Star) – This has a medieval beat to it. Rick solos on Moog type sounds a couple of times. These is as a sound I don’t know how to described perhaps bells or guitar done on keyboard A quatte mane (At Four Hands) – My favourite track for some reason. It uses the […]

Rick Wakeman – Return To The Centre Of The Earth

We have had lots of initial impression but no one has really given a view after a lot of listens. So I will give mine to start us off (I hope). I was going to do a full review but since I don’t normally do a track by track review when I get a new […]

Rick Wakeman – Aspirant Sunset

These discs were one of my last choices. I tend to prefer hard rock and Moog solos. But these discs have had a bigger place in my collection than I expected. I have to confess Sunrise somehow grabs my attention as being a favourite but someone already has a review on the Rick Wakeman site […]

Rick Wakeman – Two Sides Of Yes

This disc has slipped out without a mention from Rick or his website. The first I heard of it was on a Classic Rock Legends Catalogue. It is now also making advertising in main Magazines. Wondrous Stories normally seem to be ahead of the rest with their adverts and it is currently on their back […]

Rick Wakeman – Themes

I am bored so I thought I would do the review even though I am not completely sure what I think yet. Fanfare – This is a track very much in the Wakeman with Wakeman mould. It is OK but nothing special to me so far. Bassolla – This is rather an inverted song to […]

Gole and Hero – Soundtracks By Rick Wakeman

I have just spent the Last two days watching German Language Versions of Gole and The Hero. It was interesting to see that Gole has a few bits of Extra Music. I think mainly because they were not long enough. Or my Memory is it’s usual bad self and I am wrong. The Gole World […]

The Making Of Surreal State Circus – Rick Wakman – Video

My copy of this video came today and I guess it was much as I had expected it to be hence the reason for having delayed buying it for so long. It is a kind of homemade production. Certainly not normal Tv Standards. And the sounds include from Rick are of very poor quality. I […]
