You still need King Arthur, No Earthly Connection, White Rock, Rapsodys and Criminal Record for a start.......
I like Wakemans work!

I haven't heard Criminal Record in 25 years but I remember it as being one of the best of the bunch. That and Six Wives are my personal favorites. Of course he has 300 albums out by now- I have no idea how the later ones are!

I've got the track Journey to the Center of the Earth. I first I thought that Wakeman was nuts, but now I like it. :P
One time we listened to it in the car during a nine-hour trip. My mom and my sis complained the whole time asking me, "When will it ever end?" :roll:

I never could enjoy Wakeman's King Arthur one
I think I have been forever traumatized by Monty Phython's Holy Grail and will never be able to take anything related to the Arthurian legend seriously again, without waiting for the part where someone asks for a shrubery.

My personal favourite is No Earthly Connection. The later stuff includes one or two highlights per cd but non really valuble that I´ve heard.

I recently picked up Journey to the Centre of the Earth for $7 Australian (that's about $5 US). It was worth every cent, but not many more. The first half was really good, but the sea battle was awful Andrew Lloyd Webber funk-without-soul stuff.

Six Wives is rather good. If you look around you should be able to find a recently released DVD with a live performance going cheap (Greg Walker, who I bought my first Glass Hammer albums off, is selling it for $22). The series is called Classic Rock Legends.

I've always been a fan of Six Wives and King Arthur. I think 1984 is pretty funny, and the instrumental parts are awesome.
I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused
Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise
If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this maze?
