REVIEW: Rick Wakeman - Journey To The Centre of The Earth (30 April, 2014)
30 April, 2014 - Forty years after recording Journey To The Centre of The Earth, Rick Wakeman and his band(s) are performing the prog-rock classic on tour.
"I believe you make music for the beauty of your soul, your realization of life, and the joy of making music." - Jon Anderson of Yes talks about the spiritual inspirations behind the likes of "And You And I," "Long Distance Runaround" and "Starship Troopers," which Anderson thinks of as his "search for truth and search for an understanding of what God truly is." Anderson also speaks of his return to the band in the 1980s, when Yes became unlikely MTV stars, all thanks to "Owner Of A Lonely Heart": http://www.songfacts.com/blog/interviews/jon_anderson_of_yes/
Me at 15: "Oh Rick Wakeman looks like an elf!"
Friend: "Yes, but not so much as that guy from Yes."
Me: "No, Rick Wakeman is more elvish."
Friend:"No way, the guy from Yes is more. I forgot his name..."
I never really got into Yes but I'm enjoying "Journey to the Centre of the Earth", "The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table" and "Return to the Centre of the Earth". Hooray!
Just finished reading 'Further Adventures Of A Grumpy Old Rockstar', the second of Ricks books filled with entertaining anecdotes from his extremely colourful and event-filled life. Definitely recommended.
Amazing what I heard, thirty some odd years ago, but repented to the Saviour; so much better class of trustworthy companions, and forever the promises (A.V. 1611- commonly called the King James Bible) are true. Only a nobody, who loves to tell everybody (unbelieving and believing sinners alike), about Somebody who can save Anybody. Jesus Christ, the same (not anti-bible believing catholics_ do you read your 1611?, cover to cover? ????....Good stuff, if you understand, by His holy Spirits leading. It is spiritual. The ultimate lied about book. Thanks, Mr. Catholic, (unpolitically correct.) Hope to enjoy some more of Ricks fantasy music-calling a spade a spade. Love ya'; have a nice Christ-day.
I've been playing 'The Time Machine' album a lot recently. If you're into late 80s rock and synth, look no further than this. Some great tracks on here, including 'Custer's Last Stand', 'Ocean City', and 'Slaveman'.
Great work. I love Gone but not forgotten a very moving piece of music. I first heard this played by Rick at Richard Whiteley Remembrance service at York Minster, York. Rick said Richard heard the piece being played by Rick and said how beautiful it was and he said jokingly how he would like it played at his funeral. I had this played at my Dad's funeral as he too loved Rick Wakeman.
