Rick Wakeman Journey To The Centre Of The Earth (Super Deluxe) 3CD+DVD

Journey to the Centre of the Earth is the second album from Rick Wakeman, released in 1974 through A&M Records.
The album is a live recording of his second of two concerts on 18 January 1974 at the Royal Festival Hall in London. Its concept is based on Jules Verne's eponymous science fiction novel, which tells the story of Professor Lidenbrok, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans, who follow a passage to the Earth's centre originally discovered by Arne Saknussemm, an Icelandic alchemist.
Wakeman performs with the London Symphony Orchestra, the English Chamber Choir, and a group of hand-picked musicians for his band which later became The English Rock Ensemble. Actor David Hemmings provides the narration to the story.

The record topped the UK Albums Chart, the first album from A&M Records to do so, and peaked at number 3 on the US Billboard 200. A total of 14 million copies of the album have been sold worldwide and in 1999, Wakeman released a sequel titled Return to the Centre of the Earth.

This deluxe version contains the original album re-mastered at Abbey Road by Andrew Walters from the original master tapes as well as two concert versions of the record and a quad mix and hi res mix , both supervised and approved by Rick Wakeman. The box set contains new sleeve notes by Prog Rock editor Jerry Ewing who interviewed Rick to get an overview into the album concept and recording. The box also contains a replica of a Japanese tour programme from the tour as well as memorabilia from the time.
