Rick Wakeman Announces Deluxe 'No Earthly Connection'

Rick Wakeman

(Prog) Rick Wakeman's sixth solo album No Earthly Connection is to receive a deluxe edition next month. It was originally released in 1976 and was recorded in France with Wakeman and his English Rock Ensemble.

It's been remastered at Abbey Road Studios by Andrew Walter and will be released on November 11 via UMC on 2CD. The second disc will feature live material recorded at Wakeman's show at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, in 1976 which was originally captured by the BBC.

No Earthly Connection will also feature a booklet with extensive liner notes, including an interview with Wakeman conducted by Prog editor Jerry Ewing.

A statement reads: "The album is also being released digitally as well as on a single CD and on vinyl. The original LP came with a small square sheet of reflective plastic, which when curved into a cylinder and placed on the front cover, allowed the viewer to see the cover's drawing undistorted and with a 3D-like effect - a barely discernible, thin, colourful arc on the cover then appeared as a rainbow keyboard about to be played by Wakeman's hands."
