Rick Wakeman / Journey to the Centre of the Earth super deluxe box set

wakeman_journey

A new four-disc box set of Rick Wakeman’s legendary live album, Journey to The Centre Of The Earth will be issued in May…

Originally released on A&M Records in 1974, this new, extended edition features the album remastered at Abbey Road (by Andrew Walter) with an additional previously unheard bonus track The Pearl and Dean Piano Concerto (Royal Festival Hall 1974) and performances of ‘Journey’ Live from Boston (1974), Live In Buenos Aires (1993).

That’s three CDs worth of content, with the fourth disc being a DVD that features a quad surround sound mix and a hi-res stereo mix – both “supervised and approved” by Rick Wakeman.

From the look of the image above, expect a Tears For Fears / Simple Minds-sized super deluxe box.  The set features original artwork from Roger Dean, a replica Japanese tour programme and new sleeve notes by Prog mag editor Jerry Ewing who interviewed Rick to get an overview into the album concept and recording.

The 3CD+DVD Journey to the Centre of the Earth box is released on 6 May 2016.
