Rick Wakeman Reveals Centre Of The Earth Special Edition Details

(Prog) Rick Wakeman has confirmed the details for the new special editions of the Journey To The Centre Of The Earth album and its sequel Return To The Centre Of The Earth.

Both will be launched on June 23 in a variety of formats - and the super-deluxe collector's set includes a limited-edition lithograph, signed by Wakeman and artist Roger Dean, and available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Journey was first released in 1974 then revisited in 2012 after the original score, presumed lost, was recovered with an addition 20 minutes of music intact.

Wakeman recalls: "It's a little known fact that I had to mortgage and sell nearly everything I owned in order to make Journey To The Centre Of The Earth, as I only had 4000 from A&M towards it. That's one of the reasons it was recorded live - I just couldn't afford to record it in the studio. On the day of the live concert I received a writ for non-payment of my milk bill by the Express Dairy!" more on this story
