Day 143: The Battle, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Rick Wakeman
Another good Youtube find. This album came out before War of the Worlds (see yesteday’s post) and I guess is now long forgotten. Yet the journey to the centre of the earth musical production is certainly well worth listening to although admittedly very 70s. Originally I had a live performance of this masterpiece but alas it got taken down by Youtube. This version I think is from Rik Wakeman’s official Youtube channel so hopefully it won’t get taken down in the future.
My Video Summary
If you click on the Playlist Video for Week 21 (top right of this page) you will be taken to a single video which allows you to play each song in this week's list one after the other. Alternatively, if you watch my own video summary below of this week's songs at the end of the video two playlist links will appear. The one on the left hand side will take you to the video playlist for this week while the one on the right will take you to a single video playlist that allows you to play the complete Covid Island Discs collection for all the currently completed weeks so far — well over 200 songs and counting!
