Wakeman details deluxe reissues

Six Wives and King Arthur albums set for re-release in February

Two of Rick Wakeman's most successful albums are to be issued as deluxe editions.

The Six Wives Of Henry VIII and The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table will be released via Universal Music on February 2 ahead of the keyboard icon's UK tour.

They'll be available in CD, CD/DVD, LP and digital formats. Both have been remastered at Abbey Road, and the DVD element features new quadrophonic mixes of the tracks. They're to be delivered in new packaging.

The Six Wives Of Henry VIII was Wakeman's first studio solo album. Released in 1973 it landed in the the UK album chart Top 10 and went on to over 15 million copies worldwide. It was inspired by Nancy Brysson-Morris’s book The Private Life of Henry VIII, a childhood favourite of Wakeman’s. His third title, The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur And The Knights of the Round Table, reached no2 in 1975. 

Earlier this year, Wakeman's Journey To The Centre Of The Earth and its sequel Return To The Centre Of The Earth were reissued as special editions.

He won the Live Event award at this year's Prog Magazine Progressive Music Awards.
