Rick Wakeman - The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur... album review
Double fantasy: Rick Wakeman's sword and sorcery epic reworked to twice its length.
When Rick Wakeman was seven years old, a trip to Tintagel kindled a love affair with Arthurian legend. When this writer was a child, pulling the gatefold sleeve of King Arthur… from the record rack at home felt like releasing Excalibur from the stone. Its lavish design fired the young imagination even before the platter reached the turntable. And so began my own love affair with prog.
In the spirit of the original but with some surprises.
